Well, Jean/James, If your experience is anything like ours - you will find it's the best decision you ever made. And starting off in one of these fully furnished properties is definitely the thing to do. I nearly made a rod for my own back by coming over strait into an unfurnished long term rental..... But thankfully i listened to the voice of the masses!!
We are here (i think) until the 27th June and would be more than happy to say hello and offer any advice that we may have. As you are probably aware - This site is a great resource for finding answers to questions. We wouldn't have been able to do things anywhere near as efficiently as we have done, if were not for the folk on this site!
