The best place in France to live is where you find an area that suits you, your lifestyle and you where you feel comfortable. All this snobbish rubbish about not living next door to or mixing with other Brits is ridiculous, and just a wind up being carried on from other forums. To quote a very famous French Football manager who in reply to a reporter as to why he always claimed his players were the best. He said, "everybody thinks their wife is the prettiest". I think that is the same for genuine people, not the wind-up merchants, saying that where they live is the best.

As an (un)genuine person I can honestly say that where I live is not the best!

 

Someone has to live in these places though.

As someone who makes just about everything from scratch that I can..... all I can say is................



.........MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM! salad cream, I had forgotten how good it was until I got backBig Smile [:D]


I was trying to explain to someone the other day about being in a waiting room in France and I knew that the other lady waiting was english. My son had said that there was a girl in college with an english mother and hence I knew where she was from and in fact who she was. She lived along the valley from me a few villages down. Apart from the usual bonjours I said not another word to her.


I am usually VERY chatty, but not this time.


I never wanted to live near any other english and I knew where many were in my region. Firstly, I had moved to France, and IF I had lived near other english people, reckon that I could have taken the easy route by not making an effort to learn french, I knew of some who did just that, could hardly speak a word after years. So that was my guiding force, why move to France to be near other british people..... better to stay at home as far as I was concerned.
