It is published as Living in France.

Display advertisements on Mon Oc are also included on this web site for the duration of the Mon Oc insertions.  

Advertisements are inserted on the relevant pages which can be found on the top menu.

Links from your advert

Display advertisements are linked to either your web site or email (please specify) so that a ‘reader’ can either see your full range of services or product and properly understand what you are promoting and/or can contact you directly.  Usually it is better to link to your web site and unless otherwise instructed we will do this. 




Free Artwork

We can provide free ‘artwork’ for every advertisement placed, so you don’t have to worry how you do this or about what it will look like.                                 


Traditionally advertisements were ‘measured’ in column inches.  This meant “How many columns wide were needed and what depth”.  With digital publishing this is no longer relevant – however the principal remains the same.

Mon Oc offers adverts that are usually one column (col) wide, measured in pixels.  A column is 320 pixels wide. The depth is also measured in pixels.

Any depth is available.  For example: a square advertisement of 320 x 320 pixels (in the proportion of 1:1) costs 25€ for 3 months insertions.  All display advertising costs are in proportion to this, examples are below.

A            Landscape format            320 x 160 pixels (single col)            20 € for 3 months

B            Landscape format            320 x 280 pixels (single col)            25 € for 3 months (for house sales)

C            Square format                    320 x 320 pixels (single col)            25 € for 3 months

D            Portrait format                  320 x 500 pixels (single col)           40 € for 3 months

E            Portrait format                  320 x 640 pixels (single col)            50 € for 3 months

We do not charge TAV / VAT in additional to these prices

Any variation in depth is calculated according to this formula.


Providing material

Send us your images, logos and text (or tell us where we can find them on the web etc) and we will design it for you.  Tell us what you want to say, the main message, what you want to achieve from advertising – or if you have access; please send JPG file (320  width / landscape dimension)


These will usually follow a green-edged square format that makes them easily identified.

C            Lansscape format                     280 x 320 pixels (single col)            25 € for 3 months

Please send us an image, the location and department, brief description, the energy ratings and a link to your, or your agent’s web site, or your email for the link.
