cheap phone

local and national calls : if you are resident, you want to use ADSL, take free and the free box, all national calls will be for free

international calls : i don t know how they win their life, but you ll spare money (a lot!!!!), may be it s a bit complicate, but for this price!!!!
have a look on TeleRabais.com

you ll have to compose 10 numbers and " * " and your number with national key
for example 1 hours with russia : 1 euro!

    Thanks, Lionel, for your tips and pics (and visiting my Arcachon page!) A friend of mine is going to Bearitz this month. I advised him to visit Arcashon. May be someday I'll return there (since 1995 passed a lot of water...)

    Enjoyed your comments about Arcachon, Pyla and the oysters. I married a French girl there many years ago, return once in a while and still have in-laws there. Before that, I lived in Bx on the rue Piliers du Tutelle for about a year. Best regards--- Don

    Quite an interesting place, its a shame I didnt have the time to visit the main town of Arcachon. However, you warning tip about "Baines" is most helpful.Regards.

    La teste du Buch ! Je retiens ce nom pour y aller. Hors saison, c'est mieux, si j'ai bien compris !
