Kerroux,  Point Vert?   I was just in the one in Carhaix, looked where they sell the coal bricks, kindling, etc. and nothing but the little cubes.

Amazing all the advice you can get on firelighters and fire lighting methods,I remember when my old mum used to be on her knees rubbing two sticks together, one day I felt really sorry for her and bought her a box of matches.the barbeque lighting fluid can usually be found in the aisle with the household cleaning products and yes you would expect to find them with the charcoal which would be logical, over here you need to adapt to French logic which is slightly different to English logic.

We always use a few sheets of kitchen roll crumpled into a ball and  soaked in Huile de Colza ( rapeseed oil) , lights the fire great and cheap as chips!

We've used Leclerc's fire lighters for 15 years and find them excellent, we break them up into a jar which we keep by the fire, this allows them to dry alittle which makes them easier to light. They're cheap, less then a euro a packet and very good, we normally buy 6 packs or so at a time.

Hope this helps.
