Exporting a UK-bought LHD car to France

Is it possible or indeed practical to buy a LHD car in the UK, originally registered in Poland, and then import it to France? Are there guidelines to be followed?

Driving in France

In recent years, travelling across to the continent and driving in France has become increasingly easy for Brits, but there are laws and regulations to bear in mind while driving abroad.

Mushroom picking in France

In France, mushroom picking, or “la cueillette des champignons”, is practically a national sport during the Autumn season. However, there are guidelines to follow before wandering through the woods.

Pineau … or Pinot? Do you know the difference?

Pineau is a delicious alcoholic drink which comes from the Charentes region of France. It is a fortified wine made from 3 parts grape juice and 1 part Cognac and, like many great delicacies, was discovered by mistake.

Got something to say about Brittany or the Pays de la Loire?

Would it interest others?

It’s FREE to say it here!

 

Of course, anyone can contribute to the site just by replying directly to any posts that are added, but if you would like to add your own posts on subjects of your choice then we need to add you to our database as a post author. Then, you can write to your hearts content and publish directly onto the site.

As this represents a little work on our part – adding you to the system and then a little support for you if you encounter problems – we do like our contributors to try to publish regularly (at least 2 or 3 times per month). It doesn’t have to be a large piece every time, but we do ask for a minimum of 250 words unless the topic is appropriate to cover in less than this, and if you could upload an image to support your post then so much better – it is still true that a picture paints a thousand words! Please make sure you have the rights to use the image though.

Whilst we do not want contributors to post overtly sales-oriented content, there is an opportunity for you to gently build a following amongst our readers.

Over time, this will hopefully build confidence, and visitors will want to find out more about you (which could of course lead to a business relationship).

Just follow the prompt and ask us to set your account up as a regular guest blogger.

Advertise on the site

Advertising your product or service on this website can deliver highly cost-effective results for your business. Our traffic is rapidly increasing, with most of our visitors being English-speakers with an interest in travelling to, living in, or working in France – specifically in the North-West regions of Brittany and Pays de la Loire.

 

 

Take a look at the right-hand column of this, and all pages on the site. We are making available a small number of advertiser slots which will display on every page of the website, offering advertisers the opportunity of presenting their product or service on thousands of page impressions every week.

SPECIAL OFFER : For both of these advertising opportunities we can help create a simple graphic for your advert or run a text advert for you if that suits your purposes better, and we will also create a custom built page on the site from details on your own website so that your products and services get an even greater opportunity for being found.

Whatever you want to advertise – a property for sale, a holiday property for rent, a service you provide to people living in the area or holidaying here – let us place it in front of your target audience.
