France has become an increasingly popular destination for the thousands of expats who are deciding to escape to a sunnier, more relaxed and carefree lifestyle. The country has so much to offer; breath-taking sights and scenery, a divine range of culinary delights and a much slower pace to life. If you are toying with the idea of moving for relaxing Mediterranean retirement there are so many positive reasons for re-locating to this beautiful country.
France is a big country and many of the rural areas can offer space and a more leisurely tempo to your life. Many locations offer a relaxed and more gentle attitude and approach to everyday activities.
The further south you go the more sunshine you can enjoy. If you move to the coast, there are plenty of beaches and warm seas to relax by. Bask in the warmer temperatures and drier climate and relish the real improvement in your aches and pains.
With the benefit of better mobility, you can take long walks in the countryside take a picnic, and generally be more active. Acquire a bicycle and ride to the nearest market, or plan a trip to the cultural sights of the city. France abounds with wonderful chateaus and cathedrals. Or just tend your potager growing herbs and healthy vegetables.
With France famous for its cuisine the simplest of meals is a treat. You will not have to go far to find a good restaurant, and the quality of wine is a bonus. Eating and drinking here is an art form and certainly not an occupation to be rushed – a meal could last for hours as a social event.
A place to make memories
Imagine having your family and friends to stay and leisurely sharing the idyllic life you have built for yourselves. With so many regional airports in both countries you and you guests are never far from a flight and the joy of welcoming loved ones to your new home never loses its lustre.
