By Joshua Wood, LPC

Last updated on Feb 09, 2024

Summary: The pros of living in France include its rich culture, beautiful scenery, and excellent cuisine. Additionally, France has a strong economy and a high quality of life. On the other hand, the cost of living in France can be quite high, and the language barrier can be a challenge for those who don't speak French. Additionally, the bureaucracy in France can be difficult to navigate.

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in France responded:

"We are very happy here despite our lack of language skills. People have been very friendly and have helped us in many ways to overcome some of the difficulties we have faced. I cannot think of anything I dislike about the place," said one expat in living in St Nicolas du Pelem, France.
