The city of Nice is like in holidays ! Beautiful city with many things to do. There are museums, the famous "Promenade des Anglais", etc. If you want to study there are international schools and business school. But at the airport of Nice, you need to take a transfer company ( http://www.nice-airport-transfer.fr ) to go at home, principaly on the evening. Enjoy your stay.

I am an expat living in Nice (blog: 24/7 in France) and find the city offers a wide range of activities for everyone! You don't really need a car, as public transportation is easy and accessible. It just takes making an effort to find what you like! Bienvenue!

replied to the thread Marseillan
on the France forum:
I can't see any recent activity here but hopefully, someone will answer my question regarding Marseillan in Languedoc-Roussillon. Are there any English-speaking expats in that area? Is there much to do over there or it's necessary to drive to Montpellier for cultural events or entertainment? How about locals? Are they friendly and approachable?
Thanks beforehand for answering :)

Thank you, Marren, for your info on Marseillan :) It gives me some idea about the place. I am also an English-speaking Canadian (from Southern Ontario) who doesn’t speak French, so if I decided to move to France, I’d have to learn it from scratch (which wouldn’t be that easy at my age anymore i.e. at 59…lol).
So, Kora, thanks to marrenflynn's reply, you have the true picture. I'm pleased that someone who lives in the area confirms the impressions of a mere visitor (moi). If you explore, you CAN socialize locally. (Doesn't mean Montpellier isn't worth spending some time. I say again, it is.)
replied to the thread Best cell phone provider
on the France forum:
I need to get a cell phone in France. Does anyone know the best provider for call quality around France and Europe? Orange or SFR?
I have Orange for internet and Bougyes's discount service for my mobile, and all I can say is: Orange is expensive, but my internet is VERY reliable, whereas the Bouyges service is cheap (3 euros a month) but it's barely useable. I can't pick up service indoors, no matter whose house I'm in. My friends with the Free phone have the same problem. So, as someone already noted, cheap things are cheap for a reason. Or, as my ex father-in-law used to say "Cheap things are made to keep poor people poor."
Not really orange, they have the worst reputation and are the most expensive. Heard of Free? 2€ a month and in some cases its, well, free. Lots of my clients use them including me and for a few years now.vthey are great.

The available bedroom is at the back of the building so no traffic noise. I am 31 and looking for someone to share the apartment with me.
The original Forgemaster’s House, now the family home, has over 300 m² of habitable space. Completely modernised in 1992, The Barn and the Cottage add a further 8 bedrooms. Both dwellings have been successfully rented out for the last 23 years as holiday accommodation.
replied to the thread Where to locate in France? Help!!!
on the France forum:
I am mid- fifties, speak very little French but am learning. I bike, hike & love to explore. But love the big city life, as well. I am looking to move to France in 2015. I prefer rich French culture, architecture, but would like expat support too. Not a beach person & prefer moderate temperatures to heat. Suggestions?
New to this site, Limousine Cottage, so pardon any bungling. Could not find your website server through my Safari browser.
We are interested in a resort, probably near you, called Halcyon Retreat. A hotel within the resort is Chateau De La Cazine. We are interested in purchasing a fractional share of an apartment being constructed on the grounds of the project. We haven't made a preview visit yet, and don't care to until, sometime in 2015, apartments of our desire are supposed to be released. Won't bother you with further details at this juncture, but will answer any questions you may have. My only questions for you:
1. Are you familiar with the hotel or the project?
2. Whether or not familiar, could you do a drive-by and let us have your impressions?

I would say in he area of Cote d azur, soft temperatures during winter.
Lille is the north very cultural but rainy.
A very green place is the region of Perigeux
Lyon is also a good place to live.
