What do I need to know before moving to Orleans?

Answer this Question

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

"Before moving to Orleans, you should research the local cost of living, job market, housing availability, transportation options, suitability to your lifestyle and family needs, local crime rate, public schools and their ratings, amenities, taxes, and any environmental issues. It is also a good idea to familiarize yourself with the area's cultural heritage, social environment and the local politics. Additionally, you should check out the nightlife and entertainment options in the area and make arrangements for health care services," explained one expat living in Orleans, France.

"The housing and neighborhoods south of the Loire river is more expensive but are nicer. When deciding where to live, think about the traffic you will face daily to get to and from work. All rental contracts in France allow the renter to get out with three month notice to the owner. If the owner wants to remove the tenant, he has to have a legimate reason such as non-payment of rent or he wants to move into the property himself. He can't just arbitrarily force you out even if he sells the property to another person. You can stay as long as your contract which is either 3 or 6 years. Read the book by David Hampshire entitled "Buying a Home in France"," said another expat in Orleans, France.
