Like Sue, we are so very sorry to hear about your condition.
Get in touch with Evelyne; she's a most helpful person and was an absolute godsend when I was looking for a home for a rotweiller I'd rescued from a neighbour.
All the best,Geoff.

Property Agents

I noticed an ad put in by Med and Mountain Properties in the latest Anglophone letter.
Mark, of MMP, came round to view our house recently and though we haven't yet decided for certain when to put it on the market, I want to say that he was very professional and extremely pleasant.
