If you are buying it in Saint Maclou or Leroy Merlin, they will have installers - just ask. Leroy Merlin have English-speakers, if this is a problem.

Thank you ???? I will read up on how to maintain this type of flooring. It really appeals to me.

Haven't bought it yet, but it is available from St Maclou and some of the brico shops.  Various designs are available, ranging from about 7 euros per m2 up to 30-ish.  We have always had natural floorcoverings in our houses, and they have been great.  I don't get the people who go on about how hard they are to maintain.  No worse than carpet, just different, and they look fantastic.  Don't be put off.

Hope you don't me asking, but did you get your sea grass matting from Brittany? If so could you let me have the details?
