I am driving to UK via Dieppe/Newhaven ferry on 21st March. I have accommodation booked in Dieppe on the night of the 21st and the ferry departs at 06.00 on the 22nd. The drive is approximately 10 hours. I am looking for someone to accompany me and my dog on the journey. If you are interested please contact me. I am intending to drive in the Millau bridge if anyone only wants to do part of the journey.

I have to leave my apartment and I am looking for a new rental.

If you hear about a studio or apartment around 350-400 euros, in Cerbère, Banyuls, Port Vendres, Collioure or Argelès plage can you please inform me.

It can be year-round as for 10 months per year (except summer season), and from any suite or later, because I am hosted in the meantime.

I could also imagine renting a boat to live there.

Thank you so much.

ACCOMMODATION IN CADAQUES Hostelet Cadaques. Clean, comfortable (if small) double rooms at bargain prices (55€ off season and 80€ in season. Very central BUT avoid in season or at weekends as it is surrounded by bars and night spots and would be very noisy at night. A good bet in November to February-March.
