Where does one park at Rennes St Jacques, as the plate states that heli's can't park at the GA parking?

Rennes parking - usually on the commercial / freight parking, which is the main ramp to the north of the terminal.

Thanks, do you know what the handling/landing fees are and whether they break for lunch?

You can always go to the "Home" page and just select "English Version".

One of the best sites of its type anywhere.

Steve,

No requirement to file flight plans for a VFR flight in France. I flew down to the south of France a couple of years ago and everyone was very helpful. Another website which may be useful is Fly in France

Hotel - Northern France with helicopter landing

Stayed at Domain de Vadencourt, Maissemy. Recently while flying over all the Great War sites. Great location in Northen France. They are happy for you to land in large front garden or the walled garden at the side. Great rooms and evening meals available. A Young family run the family house - fluent English, lots of knowledge of the area. Superb.

Unfortunately. the strict rules regarding off airport landings in France may not allow this.

Go to Germany and learn about strict rules regarding off airport landings...
On a slightly different note, how difficult is it to get that French O/A rating for a non-French EASA license holder?

Why are some suggesting that it's not possible to land at a Chateau or similar?

Dunno - not a problem if you have all the ducks lined up.

The earlier posts in this thread pretty much cover everything required.
