Welcome to France
We all live and work in France and our wish is to help you make the move by sharing our experience in the context of a caring and professional estate agency service.
It’s a safe and friendly place.
France has about 3 times the landmass of the United Kingdom, with about the same population, so one can quickly see that there is a lot more space!
Statistically population density in France (123 people/km²) is well below half that of the UK (271/km²).
Much of the population is concentrated in cities and large towns and in coastal areas - great to visit, affordable to live in. But if a rural life appeals, come on down. Small villages and the remoter areas have welcoming and vibrant communities.
Healthcare is accessible and renowned worldwide. It has a lot to do with an enviable top-10 world life-expectancy.
Many incomers worry about learning the language. Please don’t - just have a go.
France is a culturally diverse country and it is very possible to gain complete immersion and never again speak your original language, to live entirely in an ex-pat community in your language of origin, or absolutely anything in between.
What else can we tell you? Crime rates are low and falling. The transport infrastructure is of great quality. There are well maintained, quiet roads, fast reliable trains, direct permanent air links to a huge range of destinations and world hubs. We have unspoilt accessible countryside, high-class sporting facilities, safe clean cities.
The cost of living compares well with most of northern Europe.
The quality of life is more subjective. Of course we are biased! We love it here.
The weather! So much better than the UK, not so hot as Spain.
And the food and wine…
