    Good idea to make it a sticky topic, then it’s always at the top.

    Hello, have been on this site since nearly the beginning of it and have been watching the membership grow. I think there were less than 20 members when I first joined. Seems pretty friendly and sensible so far. Thanks for the efforts of those who made it happen.
    We live around 15 minutes from Pontivy and Baud (Morbihan) and have been in France for nearly nine years (my French is still awful though). I didn’t start trying to learn French until past the age of 60. We never had the option of learning French at school. I struggled with English in fact. Still I like a challenge. Thanks again for the site and good luck.

    Hello All
    Used to use the other site until it changed.
    Registered here to help us get local knowledge before our move to France for early retirement in 4 years when I turn 56.
    We have a house just north of Lanouee forest but don’t get over as much as we like at the moment.
    Learning French (well, trying to) and looking forward to moving and then travelling around Europe from our Breton base.

    Hello everybody, my name is Rincewind and I’m not sure how I got here. I was running away from something or someone, turned my head to see how close it or he was and whoosh, I fell through something and arrived here. Fortunately, I saved my hat. Unfortunately, it’s not big enough to shelter under, considering the weather in this place.

    Hello Hello! Nice to see you all here :yahoo: :heart:

    29th March 2016 at 8:55 pm #2633

    And your luggage, Rincewind?

    29th March 2016 at 9:05 pm #2638

    Yes, well, I hopes it’s here somewhere, I need a clean change of underthings.

    Hello. Just been told about this site so thought I might have a look. Was a member of that other place when it started in the 90’s but gave up about five years ago when it got stupid and it was no longer a discussion forum. From the map I see no other members in this neck of the woods which is the Finistère region but never mind, we are all in the same boat here. Bought my house in 1989 so many years of Brittany under my belt.

    Several of us in Finistère, galette.

    Hi everyone, we’ve been here for 11 years now and run a boarding kennels & cattery in Porcaro. This new site seems to be going really well and we hope it continues in this very friendly way. Keep up the good work. :good:

    I too am a migrant from the ‘other place’. This site now seems to be the place to be, so I’m happy :yahoo:

    We are currently buying a property near Malestroit, which will be a holiday home for a few years until we can retire. We’re both mid-50s and unable to afford early retirement unfortunately. My husband would jack in the job and be over there to live full-time like a shot, if I gave the go-ahead, but I’m of the ‘but how would we live’ school (i.e. cautious/spoilsport). However, in the meantime we will be going to our new house as often as possible, taking advantage of as many cheap flights as we can, so it’s all good.

    What an adventure!

    Hello. I do not visit this site often, but when I do I enjoy it. I bought my house here near Rostrenen 10 years ago and moved over from Devon when I retired four years ago. We have been doing the self-suffiency thing, growing lots of fruit and veg, raising animals, doing most of the work on the place ourselves. We are very lucky to have a good circle of friends here among the English, mostly through the motorbiking scene, as we both have bikes. Also have very good French neighbours, but no French friends as yet.

    Hello everyone and welcome :bye:

    Tilla, You must come and talk to us in the Self Sufficiency section, some of us are trying at this too so advice is always helpful from others :yes:

    Hello, Just thought i would drop in and say hello too.
    I love the new site, as it’s very easy to use. I am also sure your membership will increase rapidly, I shall certainly pass the word around.

    Been here four years now, created a garden (still work in progress) and a little orchard with veggie patch.it was all a field previously. Hard work but the rewards are great.
    Now have 3 adopted cats and a load of wildlife visit regularly now, deer hedgehogs, squirrels, hare and foxes, plus abundant variety of birds.

    I had zero French on arrival but with have all French neighbours it was a case of a rapid learning curve in a small commune of friendly Bretons. Nowhere near fluent, but i can understand and be understood.
    Best wishes

    Hello,I am also jumping ship from the “other forum” last straw was when someone told me I didn’t know my grandsons age when he passed his driving test ,just beore his 18 th birthday infact .Anyway as I ´ve been here along time (24) yrs most of my knowledge of rules and regs is probably out of date ,just like most fonctionnaires I expect !But I do know which sites to look on for info .I compete here in gundog field trials and used to do obedience competitions ,am passionate about having well trained dogs and since retiring 2 years ago have devoted my spare time (quite alot so pity my labs ) to this
