We have been looking for a rental home (with the idea to eventually purchase) in the Pays Basque region but find it difficult to actually see a home before it is snapped up by people who are able to see the property the same day it is listed and hand over a check. We live in the Gers, 3 hours away. With that in mind we are also looking for a September to June opportunity which would allow us to live in the area while looking for more permanent housing. If anyone would have any ideas, contacts, etc, it would be appreciated, thank you. FYI, we have four young children.
