 French term or phrase: 17 ares 35 ca Un terrain de 17 ares 35 ca. Talking about a plot of land a house is built on. I know that an 'are' is 100 square metres. Is 'ca' - surface cadastrée? If so, how is this specified in this context? How should I write the complete measurement? 17350 m2 registered land??? Many thanks in advance. Sheila
