Located in Western Europe, France is the Eurozone’s second largest economy and is a leading industrial power. It is a country full of culture and traditions, but is said to be best known for its globally renowned cuisine, with some of the world’s best restaurants and wines originating in France. France really does have something to offer for everyone; from the cosmopolitan cities offering a range of world class culture and cuisine, to the seaside resorts and beaches and the Alpine and Pyrenees ski resorts. It’s no wonder France is the most visited country in the world with at least 79 million tourists per year.

In addition to the extensive list of places to visit in France, there are many more reasons to think of making the move to France. Firstly the country’s colonial past has led to a diverse multicultural population, with more than five million people of Arab and African descent calling France home. It also has a strong economy and is the second largest economy in the European Union. Another decider for moving to France may be the weather, especially in the South of France, where the average summer temperature is 27 °C.

Reasons to Choose France


French cuisine is renowned for being one of the finest in the world. From bread and crepes, to coffee and croissants (and let’s not forget cheese and wine), if you appreciate good food then you will love living in France. The French are also known for placing a lot of importance on meal times and they value sitting down together as a family to enjoy food.


France was the birthplace of haute couture, therefore is considered to be one of the world’s fashion capitals. Paris is the main focus of the French fashion industry and houses many fashion headquarters such as Chanel, Dior and Louis Vuitton to name but a few. French fashion has influenced fashion designers throughout the world, and living in France will put you at the centre of the latest fashion trends.


Its extensive coastline means that France has some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe. Perhaps one of the most sought after places is the French Riviera, which extends from the east to the west coast of France and is known for its spectacular coastline. If you love lying on the beach and soaking up the sun then you will be sure to find plenty of places to do this once you move to France.

Healthy Lifestyle

The French are known for having an altogether more laid back and relaxed approach to life. They don’t like to rush things, and life runs at a slower pace than most other countries. Combine this with the fine French food and the French love of outdoor activities, and you will see that living in France is healthy for both the body and mind.
