We are due to move to Paris in September. Our children are currently at a small bilingual school in Belgium but are British. We are looking for a bilingual international school in Paris for a 4 and 9 year old where there is a good expat network for our family and lots of extra curriculum activities. We would welcome any feedback current expats have! Many thanks

I can't speak to schools, but the American Library in Paris has many events for kids, as well as for adults. Excellent source of expat network.

caroleeluper posted Retirement to Annecy region? on the France forum on March 30, 2015:
Hello! We are Americans retired in France for 6 years. We are considering moving to the Lac Annecy region to be nearer to our daughter and family who live near Geneve.. We enjoy socializing with other retired people: dinners, chats, wine, chess, books, art and travel. Are there any retired people in that area who might give us some tips about living there? P.S. We enjoy the company of younger people too!

anlgza posted Purchase for rental return - studio vs 1 bdrm on the France forum on March 25, 2015:
Looking to invest in fractional ownership offering in Limousin area. Need to decide if buying into a 1 bdrm is worth the extra cost over a studio. Which generally has higher occupancy rates and hopefully better ROI?

My wife and I will begin our retirement travels in March. We're from Dallas, Texas. Does anyone have recommendations on 1 bedroom apartment rentals for a month or two? We want to spend a year traveling Europe, but will need to be going in and out every 90 days due to the Schengen zone restrictions. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
jrobbins replied on March 24, 2015 with:
I think you may be wrong about the 90 days. Check with the French consulate. I believe it is 90 days in France but 6 months in the Schengen zone. You may want to split your time between two countries.
JOz replied on March 17, 2015 with:
We've been in Paris a couple of weeks now and are still working on settling in. We'll be here another couple of weeks. We've avoided just being tourists but still we've seen a lot of the sights. We were somehow hoping to meet up with some other world travelers, but we don't know where to go. Any recommendations?

emfrancine commented on the Expat Report Review of Ermitage International School of France in Maisons-Laffitte, France
Review-of-Ermitage International School of France
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
The school is housed on a number of different sites, mainly in old converted 'château'-style mansions, all within easy walking distance of each other. Canteen housed at the Primary school, which means a short walk for college and lycée children. Extra-curricular activities include social programmes such as Passeport pour Demain, Round Square, etc. Lots of local sports clubs available, so many children just go straight to them from class.

Hello, Please could you tell me if you still have children at this school? If so are you happy with the school? Other reports about the school are really not good and I had thought this was my chosen school for my children!! Many thanks Emily

Expat Report Review of The American School of Paris in St Cloud, France was published
Review-of-The American School of Paris
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
The facilities are nice. They are planning a major renovation and expansion in the near future. There are some after school activities for students in grade 2 and higher, but they are very expensive. Sports are available for the higher grades. (Continue)
Hello, I wonder if anyone can help? We are thinking of moving to South of France if people could give me any help how easy or hard it is to get a good job teaching English? Any help would be greatly received. Thanks so much.
