nearly 2 years
What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?
- join the English Club, or if there is none, create one (the city hall will advertise it and provide a room to meet).
I joined one and it's been great; half the people are native English speakers--so you feel at home--half are French--so you branch out and make friends with French people.
Many French people are eager to join to practice and improve their English.
The club organises activities, visits to restaurants, castles, etc.
People in it are well travelled and cosmoplitan, many have lived in foreign countries before.

Not very diverse, accepting of differences yes. The people in the English club are very diverse.

Very quaint town, beautiful, old buildings, old streets, not much economic activity, perfect for retirees.

Family and work.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.
This is France as you see it in black and white movies, it's like going back in time fifty years ago, sales people in stores always take the time to chat with you, the pace is not hurried, everybody takes a 2 hours lunch break.
Serene, peaceful, beautiful, no tourists, not on the map, I love it.
