Fidgety, unless youre other half works for EDF I would seriously advise avoiding electric heating (especially if its rads) the cost is horrendous.
For a 100m2 house a wood burning stove will use wood that can be bought for abt eur16 per stere and can also be used to heat the water avoiding electric water heaters in the winter months.
On kitchens, Schmidt seems a popular company in France otherwise in DIY Leroy Merlin stock some kitchens that are not too expensive also.
Don`t forget that if your house is old and a renovation project, you will only pay 5.5 pct vat to your contractors.

are you allowed to use wood burners for central heating / water heating in france? I'm sure we where told they where banned here, so it may be worth checking if they are banned there too.

as for quotes, for our place they varied by 200k chf!!
