    Comments:
    "We used M Auzanneau to install our aerothermic heating system to provide our under floor heating. The service we were given was pretty good, although they were late starting the job (as most artisans in France are), once the job was started it ran to schedule. A very professional and thorough service with a great aftercare service – visits late on a Friday night to sort out the pump when it was not working as we had just bought our first child back from hospital. Good grants and tax rebates available for renewable energy providing the system is installed by a registered company." (RR, Dec 2010)

    "We have not needed to use Claire, but our friends needed her expertise, they found her very approachable and helpful. It is not always easy to find the right help with learning difficulties in France, the schools are not as adept at dealing with and providing the right support as they are in the UK but you need to preserve."
