Penny Hewitt

I am trying to learn French, and I work for a French company. I understand a lot more spoken French than I am brave enough to talk. My husband and I talk of moving to France one day. I am very interested in your site and books. Best wishes. Penny

Craig McGinty

Hi Jeremy

Brive Airport seems to be a bit of a long-running affair, and I don't think there is a confirmed opening date just yet.

You can visit the airport's website at:

Stumbled upon your wonderful & informative website while researching France in preparation for my holiday there in April. I am a Hugenot decendant, living at the most southern tip of Africa, in Knysna, favourite town on the Garden Route. Yet my biggest dream has always been to buy a property in France & to relocate there. I have been a Francophile @ heart all my live - my company's (Architectural Design studio)logo is the Arch de Triomph & the fleur-de-Lys features proudly on the gable ends of my home. Do you perhaps offer a house swopping facility on your site? I would be keen to enter into such an arrangement. Living in a home in a foreign country is so much more real than parking of in some commercial hotel. The town I reside in is surrounded by the most amazing scenery, is situated between gentle hills with indigenous forests, on a lake with all the watersports possible. 5 Top class golf courses are on your doorstep. Game farms are very popular with visitors. The airport is 45 minutes drive away, with lots of connecting services available. 2 Beaches with soft golden sand becons. You will be able to walk to all the restaurants & shops from my home situated in the historic part of town, 2 streets down from the main road.

Looking forward to a keen reponse from you.

All the best, Craig

i love french

Craig McGinty

Hi Haroon, hope you enjoy discovering more about life in France as you take a look around the site.
All the best


I was emailed your website from a number of sources. I have just realised a 40-year-old dream of having a home in France. It is a 200 year-old longere on the marias in Norandy, habitable and virtualy untouched. Although I speak french - it's rusty. The book has already given me a few tips and I have only skimmed it. All I need to do is brush up on my written and reading abilities. Who knows I might even finish the Count of Monte Cristo in French (I have had it for 40 years!). Then on to my Editions Nelson.

I will be dipping in often
