Thanks everyone for your replies.  I would say that marble is very durable - we haven't had any problem with it at all.  Children having been running on it and wine split and you wouldn't know at all.  


Hope that helps!

Most tool hire places hire out marble floor polishers.  But be careful: marble is very soft!  Avoiding grinding ridges and waves into your floor takes some skill and patience.

@ Esbee, you will have to leave the country-side and go to town, le cannet  or grasse - kiloutou.fr

@ job - don't spilll any red wine on them and also, i would suggest going for the cheaper option - ( looks about the same) travertin. Try carrelages batiment du littoral in vallauris

Seeing you already have marble floors, would  you recommend them for high density areas of the house and do you find they scratch easily?? Just choosing flooring and I really like the high shine that marble gives but have read some negative comments about their durability ?

thank you
