Obtaining a new carte grise

I have recently bought a 2nd hand car here in France. I have accessed the ANTS website to record my purchase and to request a new Carte Grise.

Where have all the taxis gone ?

Can anyone tell me why there are so few taxis in the region, even compared to other parts of France? There are a few bays designated for taxis, but there are never any taxis. I have been told that it is due to the high fixed costs but surely that would apply all over France and not just in our beaut...

Re: Effects of Brexit in P.-O.

Hi Martyn, I wasn't so much advocating sympathising with opinions that you totally disagree with or indeed giving much time to eccentric ideas such as a flat earth but more suggesting that two people with different values and beliefs will take the same evidence( if they could ever agree on that evid...

Like other companies offering the same service they give an exchange rate much better than the mainstream banks and do not charge fees. I use a French credit card which I then settle with the euros fr...

Re: Effects of Brexit in P.-O.

The comments above illustrate very well that Remainers and Leavers each have rational arguments for holding the view that they do. Trying to genuinely understand why an intelligent reasonable person holds the opposite view to you can be a life enhancing experience.

Small change converted shopping voucher

Intermarche now have a machine that converts small change to a voucher that can be used in the shop.

Cafe gourmand

I like to finish a meal with something sweet, but don't always want a full dessert but I am very partial to a cafe gourmand.
Can anyone recommend their favourite place for this perfect end to a meal, please?
