Very surprising.

Quite a nice lot of expats here and in Dordogne (Perigord) generally.
But I was recently told that some of them are selling & going back to mainland for fear of Brexit consequences and the prospect of a worsening change for their pensions.

Also surprised as I have been around this region at this time of year for many years now. I was in Sarlat yesterday, did see one UK plate but heard a lot of expats in the market all moaning of how expensive it is.
Also saw a French plated 75 just on the outskirts of Sarlat.

Unfortunate fact France is now as/more expensive than UK- I base this on many years travelling and holidays in la Belle France and haven't as yet discovered the reason?? The euro? possibly? Chris.S.
