TRAVEL INSURANCE -  DO IT Do not forget to get your travel insurance in place. Health care and treatment can be very expensive in France it is your responsibility to have full cover for accidents  and illness. E111 - BRING IT AND TOP IT UP - If you are European citizen remember to bring the E111 !!! which since my time in England as changed to a blue credit card ID or so I have been told. Can anyone inform me? Also remember that your E111 may not pay for all your treatment or medication so make sure you have a top up insurance. Make sure you tell your insurer that you are going on a working holiday.

THE WEATHER -  The summer can be very hot up to 40+ c and the region of south west France is also known for it's storms so prepare for both. In really hot periods you may want to start earlier and finish earlier depending on and where the work is. Again flexibility is the order of the day.  Winters can be very cold -10c recorded this year. A page about the weather in Brossac as been produced and you can see Weather in Brossac
