Too far south for you I expect - we're just north of Vannes

Cheers

Sorry to hijack this thread, but, Gwyn, would be interested to know on what basis you bought your mobilhome - lease or shares, and how the site is managed, if you don't mind sharing that info. The reason I ask is that since buying mobilhomes in Corsica on two different sites, we've increasingly run into management problems - and costs, and would like some basis of comparison. Feel free to PM if you prefer.

Thanks,

hils

PS I've left this in the Forum 'cos it may be of interest to other people.

No problem. I did a bit of research and decided on an area and a site that has plenty for the grandchildren and hopefully will still offer a bit of relaxation. Decided to buy a pre owned van, 5-6 years old that was already on the site, but has the site is only open 6 months a year the van will have been hardly used so I am classing as a three year old van. Ground rent appeared to be steep, but on researching others it clearly is not, given the available amenities and that it includes all water and electricity charges. Also unlike in England, there is no age limit for a van being on the site providing it is well maintained. I can rent it out freely if I wish with no fees to pay, and Any visitors that I have can stay in the van free, and also have full free use of all the amenities. Close to the beach and plenty of interesting towns, cities and villages as well.
