As you don't say what nationality you are it is a bit difficult to advise for carte vitale. If you are a uk pensioner then you need the s1, plus birth certificates, marriage certificate ( translated if not in french) .

if you have a carte vitale and have diabètes are you covered 100%? if so then normally it covers eye tests. Argeles ophtalmologistone is really good, but best to go in to ask for appointment as otherwise can be up to 6 months later. when you go in sometimes they can get you in on a cancelled appoint...

Don't understand exactly what you want to do but if it is to rent a vineyard and live on that land then i think it is virtually impossible ( unless there is a house on it already).

I do not believe that the staff are grumpy because there is not enough customers, they get paid either way so maybe if they did make an effort to be polite and smile and be more welcoming then there would be more customers.

they can drive in France as long as they are the legal age to drive here, ie 18 and 1 day, After that it is the same rules as if they passed their test here, I would put the A on the back of the car ( although it doesn't state anywhere that this is obligatory when passing a licence abroad).
