We're only here since June last year, and loving it..! We started looking for a place on the net, but ended up making a couple of trips, and just dealing with agents in person. Finally decided on a place, just to get a base, but now we're very happy where we are..! We're about an hour from Bordeaux. I think you'd have a better chance of gaining employment in a city, as it's hard in the more rural areas according to everyone I've spoken to. There's the Irish bar in Bordeaux, The Connemara...! Plus the cheap flights with Aer Lingus...! I think you'll be fine. Hope I've been a little help, but hopefully someone with more experience will reply too.
