Hello everyone!

American here from Chicago.

I'm in the midst of working on moving to France permanently to settle down with my fiance and his family in just about two weeks!

I'm super excited for the move, but I'm definitely a bit overwhelmed with what's to come for the paperwork, visas, etc.

I've had extensive experience traveling through the country before I met my fiance, and apart from him, I absolutely love what the country has to offer.

Looking forward to learning from all of you!

Hello Everyone,

I am new to this forum but I am excited to read some situations that might help me in mine!

I am from New York, I've lived here all my life. I am married to a native of France and we are looking to move to France after 3 years of living together in the U.S.

We are very concerned with finding work for myself and the fact that I am not fluent in the language. I am looking to find a job and continue to learn the language as fast as I can so I can be apart of the community that I love.

I am here to look for some advice on where and/or how to look for a job that doesn't require much French language skills, please don't take this as me not wanting to learn the language it is only a way to generate income while learning the language!

My husband and I both enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors. So we are very much looking forward to the move back to the South of France to enjoy the beautiful weather and sea life!

Thank you!

Hi, I’m Deborah from West Sussex, in the UK.

It’s been a dream of mine and my partner to live in France. We’ve just sadly lost his mother and so now with no ties are looking to relocate to the south west of France.

This is now worryingly become urgent before the doors close to the guarenteed free movement of EU citizens following the Brexit deadline of 19th March 2019.

I therefore will have lots of questions to ask of you all, so thank you in advance of imminent posts!

Hi I've been living in the Aquitaine region of France for the last 14 years. Lots of expats in the area. However, I am soon hopefully relocating to the Loire, dept 42 to be closer to family but know there are fewer expats. Not a huge problem as love my life in France and my spoken French good enough to cope with most situations, It would be nice however if anyone knows of any FB groups in the location. I love doing lots of different crafts & long walks/exploring with my dog Thanks
