Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Do you dream of a new life in France? The food, the culture, the beautiful towns and villages, the wine...But how do you make that move, and how does it all work once you get there? This book shows you how. Patricia Mansfield-Devine has lived in France for over ten years and brings her wealth of personal experience to this hands-on, practical guide for Britons who have bought a house in France, either for holiday use or as a permanent new home. From the practicalities of the move, to considerations such as tax, work, marriage, children and the healthcare system, through to the simple savoir-faire of local life and tips for ensuring a happy relationship with the locals (including the rules on how many times you should kiss your new neighbours on the cheek!). Patricia is your expert guide to all of this and more. "Living in France" is packed with useful information, and anecdotes from the author and case studies from other Britons who have already made the move. This book will help you to avoid the pitfalls and enjoy the many wonderful benefits that living in France has to offer.
