Hi I am retired in the UK I look after my disabled mother in her house. My wife also retires soon and we are intending to buy a house in France. We do not want to emigrate to France entirely but we would like to perhaps stay in our house in France for 2-3 months the UK in my mothers house for 2-3 months then repeat ad infinitum. I'm wondering if that length of holiday home living is ok and if there are any problems or difficulties we should be aware of. All three of us will obviously have a retirement income. Wondering what we need to do ie about Insurance for my Car also medical Insurance for such a long "holiday" might be problematic too. I also have three Greyhounds and I believe if I get a pet passport for them then i can bring them too? What should I do with regard to French authorities etc. Absolutely ANY info and advice any of you can help me with I'll be very grateful.
