Here are my thoughts on the CONs of living in France…

  • Bureaucracy! Its so, so, so frustrating
  • Staples – fuel, food and clothes are expensive
  • Transport, while good, is expensive
  • They always seem to be on strike!
  • If you don’t know French, then you can sometime struggle in more rural areas
  • High taxes

FYI, I’ve been retired/living in southern France for 11 years. Best decision I ever made.
