Air conditioning

Posted by barbara-180189 - Created: 14 years ago

Virtually impossible I know, but does anyone have a small portable air conditioning unit for sale, or know a shop where I can buy or hire one    My elderly mother is suffering badly, and I am really desperate.   I have tried Darty, Carrefour, and Castorama all to no avail.    Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Dear Indiansummer, took your advice, looked on ebay, nothing on french site but bought one on the UK site for £250, should be delivered here Tuesday.   Fantastic idea, thank you.

Hi Barbara,

I bought one two weeks ago on Ebay France. Got it for 350 Euro and I am perfectly happy with it.

Dear Nick and Lorna,   Thanks so much but have just picked one up thank goodness.   A kind neighbour on our domaine who only lives here part of the year has kindly loaned me hers.    Absolute bliss.  

Thanks everyone

My friend has one for sale!  He bought it 3 years ago and has never used it.  It remains brand new and boxed.  He paid 1500.00 Euros and will accept 950.00 (I think)

He lives in Monaco and is contactable via my e-mail address

Thanks to all those who have replied.   If we survive, come September I will be having air conditioning installed.

The shop beside Marché U (Radio Champion) is sold out of climatiseurs portables and won't be getting any more in as apparently none are available at all in France, Spain or Italy.

Thanks cantaloupe, have tried about 50 firms so far, none for hire, none for sale will just have to suffer I think.
