Home Forums General Discussion Staying in a Van on your own land. Re: Staying in a Van on your own land.


I live in France off-grid in a caravan, I just bought my property and was amazed at all I had to do in order to get “Permission” to do what I wanted to do on “MY” land. It turns out that I can legally live in my caravan for 3 months a year and after that I would need permission from the Maire that would expire in 3 years.

I lucked out and the folks there are super cool and gave me permission for the 3 years, Yurts are another great way to duck Planning permission problems if you need a “LOOP HOLE”, I am putting a yurt up after Xmas.
