On holiday in France the farmhose we stayed in had a giant (2m high)
electric water heater in the cellar. It fed mains pressure hot water to the
house above. The owner said it was great and the bills weren't high. My old
gravity fed indirect effort which heats off a gas boiler could do with
replacing. I'm fortunate to have a cellar, one of these giant things would
be perfect. The only references I can find to electric water heating are the
good (ie bad) old immersion heater.
Can anybody point me to websites for something better?

If you believe a Frenchman on matter plumbing you are stark raving
bonkers - they invented the Saniflo.
All electric water heaters are (at the point of delivery) 100%
efficient. All you can do after that is improve insulation etc to
hold that heat in but there is nothing more efficient than the bog
standard immersion heater.
As with all forms of peak rate electric heating it is still very
expensive - because electricity is expensive compared with other
fuels - but it is perfectly efficient.
