Situated in Western Europe and with the second largest land mass of the continent, France has a population of nearly 65 million people. The architecture, art and food here is legendary and there is always something to see or somewhere to explore. The official language here is French, and although you could probably get by in some of the larger cities without knowing any at all, you’re encouraged to learn at least a little of the basics. If you move to France you’ll find that government administration is very powerful and complex; nothing gets done without the proper paperwork, and this applies also if you’re planning to rent a property. If you move to Paris, the capital city, you might be surprised at the high rental costs. Instead of limiting yourself to a specific neighborhood, keep an open mind about what area you live in, remembering that Paris boasts one of the best underground transport systems in the world.
