Default brittany france

hi my husband and I are thinking of moving to Brittany, we would appreciate any advice on an area best suited to us! we want detached with at least 5 acres upwards and suitable for 5 dogs and three horses. my main concern is I would like to be in an equestrian area where I could compete my horse and also have nice safe hacking out. would like to be near an "English" speaking community but not essential but preferable. any recommendations would be great !

Hi, and welcome to the forum!
This section is just for worldwide Introductions - post again on the France forum and you'll get more response! The first thing that springs to mind is your arrival with 8 "pets", and you should check that this is possible without administrative hassle at the Customs. Google "centres équestres - Bretagne" to find a suitable area to start with. And maybe you should talk hectares, rather than acres!
Look forward to seeing you on the France forum!

Hello again!

gives info about dogs and other pets entering France, but there's no mention of horses. A maximum of 5 "specimens" can be brought in without special inspection at the Douane at the port of entry, meaning that you'd have to take into account the extra time to get your 8 animals through...
Hope all this helps, you could do a French forum search (enter "horses"), as the subject of bringing horses into France has come up in the past. Also equestrian centres...
