AN ANTIDOTE TO THE “HOUSE IN THE SUN” HYPE.
IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT MOVING TO FRANCE, YOU MAY FIND THIS SITE VERY ILLUMINATING
Ten years ago I posted this site and as you can imagine I have received a lot of very interesting responses. Some for, but many against. It makes startling reading for those thinking of moving to France to live.
‘Lambs to the slaughter: “The harsh reality, soon
blows those dreams away...”’
I’ve included comments I received and a few musings of my own. If you are thinking of moving to France and want an antidote to the “House in Sun” hype, then this site is for you. And if someone you know is thinking about moving to France, they will thank you many times over for telling them about Don’t Move to France.
“You have a thought provoking site, which I wish I had read before we moved here”.
The site is written from the perspective of a Brit with British people in mind; however, having said that, most of the content could be useful and illuminating regardless of where you are from. Over the years I have received input from people from Britain, Ireland, Holland, Sweden, the USA, Canada, Australia, South Africa, and even, heaven forbid!!!, a handful of French people (ranging from the indignant and outraged to those in total agreement - more of the latter I hasten to add).
“I have taught in French schools and have seen first hand what goes on! ... one thing for sure ... we will not put our children through secondary education in France ...”
Please have a look at my website
