I live in a town with a population of around 1,000 and the fuel costs are high, I pay around €60 per two months for electric and probably about €1500 per year in oil for the hearing/hot water! It's more than I was paying in the UK, but so much nicer... :)

I live in the "country" near Tolouse and we heat with wood which I buy cut and dried. We live in a house about 500 sq Ms which we have devided in half into a winter house, ( we are Swedish and this is a common practice in old Swedish homes) very well insulated, and the "summer " house. It is on the garden while the winter house faces the street.We never spend more than 400 Euros a year on heating. We keep it about 20 to 22 all winter.Of course the insulating was costly as we did Swedish standard, which I thank the lord now we did, but we did it at the same time as the renovations were done.
