Homesearch and TV

Am just in the middle of a homesearch for a 4 bedroomed holiday home in the Vaunage - my current preferred place to live (for myself that is...) The Vaunage is the area just SW of Nimes - from Nimes down to the Sommieres area really. It covers Langlade, Aubais, Calvisson and other pretty villages. It's great as you are really halfway between Nimes and Montpellier - there's lots of life in these villages and commerces are never far away.

This is a lovely house...

One of the things that has frustrated me lately: we were looking for a satellite dish installation company right in the middle of Montpellier - my usual company is in the Vaunage and wouldn't come so far. I called 3 different companies who quoted me (for 1 dish with a double head and 2 lots of cables) between Euro545 and Euro600. I was amazed. Admittedly this is for a flat on the first floor of a block of 3 floors (plus ground). The last installation I did in Aubais cost Euro317 for a very large house and that included a French digital box (Montpellier already has their box.)
After a recommendation from Peter at The Languedoc Page, I contacted Richard at Sky in France who are based in Toulouse, but who travel to this area a couple of times a week... they charged Euro350. All works well.
