Re: Anti-Covid vaccinations

Ironically there is a French company on British soil that is supposed to be rolling out 60 million doses so that everyone over there who wants one, can have it before the end of June.

Re: 6pm Curfew

Haha, yes, there is a lot of waffle before we get to the minute or two of useful information, and then there's more waffle afterwards.

Re: Is there a French maplins / screwfix / toolstation or similar?

Thanks for the German link Moses2013. Over the past few years, I have found when I can't find what I need in France, Germany has often been a good source, despite I don't speak a word of it.

Re: 6pm Curfew

It's all conjecture at the moment, but I was expecting 18:00 curfew in all departments, but no lock downs and schools to remain open but with more measures put in place. Guess we'll see tonight,...

Re: 6pm Curfew

KJMW, that is what some of the experts suspect - that the virus would be weakened and killed off, so wouldn't likely be a problem, but I suppose (and this is just my own non-scientific guesswork!)...

Re: 6pm Curfew

Surprisingly France does seem to be way behind with its vaccination programme. A few of the unknowns at the moment is how long does the vaccination last? The companies suggest at least a year, but I...

Re: Applying for CdeS after 31st December 2020

Applied for mine last week - as clothmama says you just need some very simple things. For myself, it was scan of my passport, then proof I resided in France in 2020 (they provide three fields for...

-5C at nights where I am, with 2 or 3C in the day. Have to get up early and scrape the car windscreens well! Good news is it will be warming up from Wednesday onward, hopefully where you are too....

Re: 6pm Curfew

Hope Filomena bypasses you DMU.
Also talk on TV (which I heard via the internet) that the French government may be closing their borders to the UK and Ireland, possibly other countries too.

Re: Vitrificateur vs polyurethane vernis

Thanks again DMU and Listen Very Carefully. I actually have some vitrificateur in the barn that I'd forgotten about, it should still be good. Just deciding on a good undercoat/wood stain to use...

Re: Vitrificateur vs polyurethane vernis

Thanks DMU, so it seems there's not really much difference other than the Vitrificateur is liable to be more durable and less odour.

I've removed some old lino and found a nice hardwood parquet floor beneath it. I've been stripping off the glue, and scrapping off the old varnish. There are some areas that need a little work, and...

Re: Has anyone received the Brexit carte de séjour yet?

I would say it's not just down to how many Brits are in a region, some prefectures are very much on the slow side. I certainly wouldn't worry, there's lots of time in hand, and many in the same boat....

Sounds like in essence trade will be without tariffs. Not sure if there are any caveats, but it sounds like good news.

Re: Does getting a Carte de Sejour affect residency for tax?

If it's just a holiday home, and you remain a resident in the UK, you would not be able to obtain (nor would you require) the new residency permit. I'm afraid at the moment you would be subject to...
