Bretagne-France.Com purchased

I'm on the lookout for people to help with - this Brittany France website will be primarily in French but with English also wherever possible.

The website is going to be a directory site as well as information, news and blogs etc.... I purchased this website from a domain auction last weekend and am itching to get cracking.

Post me a comment if you're interested!

Micro Station D'épuration France

Finally placed my order for the a WPL package sewage treatment plant, in France they call them micro station d'épuration.

My micro station d'épuration will be in the ground in a few weeks time and will be treating all my household waste water to the very high standards of the EN 12566-3 requirements.

This will be a pleasant change from the existing state of affairs which is basically a smelly hole in the ground! Having said that my smelly hole smells better than a lot of septic tanks I've come across.

Looking forward to reclaiming what was a very nice corner of my garden!

I've just been out shopping after many hours of research into this type of heating system and have come back with two air heat pumps from Bricodepot for under 600€

I've pulled together a little more information about how they work here: Air source heat pumps in France: Aerothermie - Pompe a chaleur

I'm looking forward to fitting them but it's going to have to wait until after next weekend! I'll let you know how it goes!

New bank savings accounts in France - Livret A - 4.8%

Fed up with only getting a couple of percent on your savings in France? The new Livret A account will be giving 4% from August and is expected to be returning 4.8% from January 2009!

The European commission has forced the French government to remove certain restrictions on savings accounts in the French banking system. This is leading to increased availability of interest paying bank accounts and therefor increased competition from the French banks for your money.

Operation escargot 30th June 2008

I've been hearing from French friends that a national Operation Escargot in France is planned for tomorrow the 30th of June and that driving in France is going to be a nightmare.
Plan your route carefully and be sure to take a GPS or set of maps to enable you to navigate via the back roads if the operation escargot does in fact occur tomorrow in France.
Don't forget to have your fluorescent jacket and warning triangle in your car for the 1st of July - it will be mandatory for driving in France!
