What do I need to know about living in Nice?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Nice, they said:

"Many expats choose to retire in Nice due to its sunny climate and thriving social scene. It is important to understand the cost of living in Nice, which is generally higher than most other destinations in France. Expats should also be mindful of the tax regulations in France. For example, pension income may be subject to taxation, although double taxation agreements may apply in some cases. Healthcare facilities in Nice are excellent and expats have access to both public and private hospitals. It is important to register with the local health insurance provider, or take out private health insurance to ensure expats have access to the best quality healthcare. Expats should also familiarise themselves with French culture and language, as many of the locals speak very little English. Finally, expats should take steps to ensure they obtain the relevant visas and permits required to legally retire in Nice," said one expat who made the move to Nice, France.
