How do I find a place to live in Orleans?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"When looking for a place to live in Orleans, one could start their search by reaching out to the local housing authorities and rental organizations in Orleans. They may be able to provide advice on how to find a place to live, such as where to begin your search and what resources are available. Additionally, they may have direct listings of locally available properties. It may also be worthwhile to search online for rental companies in Orleans, as well as websites such as Airbnb and vacation rental websites that specialize in short-term and long-term rentals. One may also find ads in local newspapers, magazines, or shop windows for available properties in the Orleans area. Finally, reaching out to friends, family, or acquaintances already living in Orleans may be another route to find out about places to live, as well as gaining further insight and advice on the local area," said one expat who made the move to Orleans, France.

"Our first place was determined because it was close to my work in Geneva, Switzerland but on the French side of the border. Colleagues at work told us it was less expensive to live in France. When I retired we moved to the Orleans area to be close to Paris without living in Paris (too much traffic, noise, polution typical of any big city in the world). We found this house to rent on a French real estate website which was large (for France), in a quiet neighborhood and close to shopping and other services. The added benefit is that our neighbors are all very, very nice and welcoming," explained one foreigner living in Orleans, France.
