Many thanks to all who posted.  I have now found one that fits the bill and have ordered it online with free delivery.  Just hope it arrives before the weather warms up, we are keeping milk etc outside!

I second what emu has said about Darty. Our nearest branch has a huge amount of fridges/freezers/combinations in stock. The staff are friendly and if you want something specific they will look on their computer straight away and see if they can get it for you.

Free del, old appliance taken away for you, and prices are good (and I think ?? their paperwork said that if you can buy cheaper elsewhere they will refund the difference - we couldn't - their price was very good).

Take a look on their website (darty.com), quite a few listed. They have a branch in Rennes.

Try Electrodepot, it is good value for money (but the very low price range) and their service is exactly the same as anywhere (bring back instore then wait).

But, hey, let's say it clearly ... How often does a fridge fail ?

Have a look at darty.fr

they deliver for free, install the appliance and check it is working ok and they will take away your old appliance.  Prices are very good and range is extensive.

Try www.ubaldi.fr  I've bought several items from them over the years and the prices are really good.  Just saved 200 Euro on the Darty.com price.  Delivery was good and on time.  Also the delivery company used English and rang to arrange a time and date for delivery.

The real test is what happens when something goes wrong.

Their after sales service is very good.

Do yourself a big favour and stop looking at white goods in the supermarkets.  There is little or no direct service or repair backup.  Just delays of weeks or months while they send them off to a central repair shop.  Definitely not worth whatever savings you think you are getting.
