Why move to France
France is known by people the world over. Its incredible architecture, world class cuisine, rich history and places to live. You can make a home in Paris and marvel at the culture and terrace scene throughout the City of Light. There’s the snow-capped mountain ranges with some of the world’s best pistes and apres ski on offer. If cities and alpine climes are not for you, then there’s the Cote d’azur and the mediterranean.
France is the most-visited country on Earth because there’s so much to see, do, eat and drink. Its cooking has found a home in countries the world over but you can enjoy the real thing everyday.
It would be remiss to ignore its diversity and spectacular landscapes. From the Alps and Pyrennes to historic beaches of Normandy and sophisticated party scene of the south. All around is the joie d´vivre and time for the finer things in life. France offers more than just wine, champagne and gastronomy. There’s a high standard of living, rule of law, leading high-speed rail infrastructure and world class education.
