Thinking of retiring in France? A few reasons why you should consider retiring in France.


Accessibility is an important point when thinking of retiring abroad. Being able to easily travel back to the UK to visit relatives or attend to family matters is one of the reasons why France is amongst the most popular destinations for retirees looking to move abroad for their retirement.

With regular services from all main UK ferry ports and airports and low-cost fares retiring to France is no longer the impossible dream. Much improved flight frequencies mean that travelling to France can be quicker, easier and cheaper than reaching many parts of the UK thus facilitating retiring to France.

With a lifestyle envied the world over France is renowned for its high quality of life and its relaxed unhurried way of life. For the French life is definitely for living! The huge French countryside will spoil would-be retirees for choice in terms of character – each region is different -, affordable real estate, low cost of living and first class infrastructure and transports.  Getting around in France is on the whole a trouble free affair and a pleasurable experience. Many roads are still empty and of high standard and are free of charge. The comprehensive motorway network which operates on a toll system is excellent and links all the major French cities.

According to the World Health Organization France provides the best overall health care system in the world and many British companies specialize in providing coverage for expatriates. As for your Pension Plan it is highly recommended to research the subject and seek professional advice in the UK as in France.
