    Moving to France

    My wife and I are in the process of moving to France. An isolated house some 45 minutes North of Limoges. I was in the local village of Magnac Laval at lunchtime and was delighted to see a blue Trophy with French plates parked up. Had a brief chat with the owner who lives in Limoges. Nice to know I shan't be alone!

    I note a lot of posts where folks have done bike tours in France and really seem to like the Country.  Sounds as if you have found the perfect hideaway.  Good luck and best wishes in your move.

    Hi Brian,

    All the best for the Big Move  :028:

    We'll be sorry to lose you from the UK,
    but it will be good to have another Pit-Stop for anyone touring over there  :153:

    ( Did I mention I'm planning a  trip through Framce to Southern Spain next year ?  :038: )

    Cheers  :821:

    Funnily enough, Coconut, we have thought it might be an attractive stopover for bikers heading for the sun looking for a night's B&B. There will be 2 double bedrooms available. Visitors would have to be cat and dog lovers and happy to be staying with a pair of vegetarians who are edging towards veganism. Vegan touring bikers is probably one of the smaller niche markets  :745: and it is not proposed as a serious business proposition. Feel free to drop me a PM when you are planning your trip.

    We would definitely be interested in coming along.
