What do I need to know about living in Orleans?

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

"Before retiring in the French city of Orleans, expats should be prepared to learn the French language, or at least pick up some basics. Additionally, expats should research ideal locations to purchase or rent property and familiarise themselves with local laws and regulations. Additionally, it is important to research the cost of living in Orleans as well as healthcare and pension options for retirees. Finally, expats should take time to explore the city, discover its culture and make connections with the local people and expatriate community," wrote a member in Orleans, France.

"If he has a family it is a good place to live. If he or she is single, I can't advise them since I don't know the single scene here. There is a big university here so they may be able to connect with the students there but I don't know anything about the clubs or other diversions for single people," commented one expat who made the move to Orleans.
