pos new farm site in france anyone interested

Recommended Posts

hi, i am shortly buying a small farm in France, in a dept called Mayenne (the one just south of  western Normandy) roughly 1.5 hours from the Portmouth - Caen ferry (Ouistriham) it has several small flat well drained  fields with nice county views & an in out roundabout type driveway with good hard parking - good for tractors = good for cars or caravans.  it also has several tractor sized sheds, & a modern-ish concrete cow barn with access so i might offer storage?

its only a mile from a small town with shops restaurants, supermarket & fuel station inc gas bottles, a few miles from some very nice fishing lakes. lots of tourist stuff around - the usual kind of thing plus a few music venues during the season.

i want to just get an idea if there would be any interest either to camp once facilities are in place such as showers etc, or as 1 idea to park your caravan or motor home here either over winter just for storage or in the season to pick up & put back as you  like so you  don't pay ferry charges back & fro if you  want to use it in Europe,

 

any advise or serious suggestions welcome, all the rules etc i am discussing with the town Mairee once i get enough feedback from here & other sites to decide if its worth a shot.

I am not planning anything fancy, just basic facilities, peace & nice views, not high prices either.....probable discount for bringers of teabags & Marmite!!

thanks.

Hope to stay there at some point as I like the area.

 

BTW, POS might not mean what you think it means so some might misinterpret the thread title.

 

I would use POSS or even Possible.

Be prepared for lots of  red tape. Years ago when I had a house in France, used to visit the expat forums and this question would come up often. If I remember, the rules are strict and often the advice was to buy one already set up. The other option would be Camping A la Ferme (or someting like that) which is like our CL's

Good luck.

My cousin has lived in France for 20 years and regularly pulls he hair out over the bureaucracy.  The classic case was when Sarkosy tried to withdraw health care benefits for ex-pats. To restore them involved filling in an application form but you had to complete another application form to obtain the application form!  The local social security office refused to issue one, so she got a French neighbour to obtain it, and when it was submitted the staff were irate with indignation at her by-passing 'the system'.

Typical foncieres as they are called if I remember. The usual routine is to ask several different people and take the most appropriate answer( as they will all be different:D). If all else fails see the Marie.
