We have a property in Vernet les Bains that is big enough to live in. 92.5 sqm plus terraces plus Cave and Garage, i...

Thanks
Our Syndic occasionally offers a group discount but I struggle with confirmation that it is beneficial.

We use it in Spring/Summer and if somebody was enterprising enough to do day trips for skiing then the winter would have more attractions.

It is not too bad in Winter. My wife bought our place partly for the view and partly because the village still has life in February.

I wonder about any real 'joined up' thinking by the powers that be. CO2 pollution is massively contributed to by cows farting and ships and lorries moving stuff around the world. NOX emissions are most deadly in Cities by a date in the near future most cars will be electric or hybrids. etc So the sh...

Allan, if we had a 'Hostile' environment towards large scale tax underpayers then perhaps we wouldn't need to be so austere and have to create a 'challenging;' environment for NHS workers and customers, DWP clients....

Rudd resigned because she lied/was mistaken about the targets and misled the House. The underlying scandal is that the culture had been dialled up to 'Hostile' and the civil servants stopped using their heads about their role and responded to the targets not the actual law.

I noticed that the board itself is free software, and the supplier offers free updates, so I suppose that the cost of 1000 euros is to pay somebody to do the update. Although I know that every change causes problems but I would have thought that is a viable student (college level not Uni level) proj...

Thanks all. I was guilty of expecting a period wherein the original date could be preserved, as in the UK.

However if we lose a month out of 24 for our own convenience so be it.
