Karen Warden - Beaux Villages Sales Consultant & Equestrian

Karen Warden // Monday, 16 March 2020

I am a keen equestrian and have had horses in my life since I was a teenager. I currently  have 3 horses at my home in the Lot-et-Garonne area, two of which travelled with me from the UK and now enjoy the freedom of France.

I have lived in France for over 12yrs, and it's great to see the equestrian housing market improving all the time and local equestrian minded people moving into the area.

I have a great understanding and compassion for anyone moving to France with their equine friends. It is important to find suitable land, stabling, outbuildings and then source local vets, reliable farriers, feed merchants, local builders for the construction of stables and arenas and equine transporters who do regular trips from the UK to SW France.

A line of lights in the sky that were visible from France on Christmas Day were “Starlink” satellites put into orbit by SpaceX, and are set to show up again tonight (Friday January 3), it has been confirmed.

SpaceX is the space explorer business started by American entrepreneur Elon Musk. These satellites appear as a line of 60 lights, and they were especially visible from southwest France the night of December 25-26, 2019.

They are set to appear again over France tonight, from around 18-19h. They will then disappear gradually, as they move away from the Earth.

Who wants to be European?

Julie Savill // Friday, 20 December 2019


This week Guy Verhofstadt revisited on Twitter his idea of European citizenship for those who choose it.

'The EU member states should grant UK citizens living in Europe the full rights as they have today. Automatically. No ‘ifs and buts’ here either. Let's also come back to the idea of ‘European associated citizenship’ for UK citizens who want to keep their link with Europe.'
