"With France being the largest country in western Europe, there is a huge choice of locations. Where you would like to live depends upon many different issues, such as whether you like a place with many neighbours or you prefer a more isolated area, or whether you prefer to have an apartment or a detached home on its own land..." David Seymour looks at some of the factors influencing your choice of property in France.
"Many people who relocate to France want to trade in a life of drudgery in the grim, cold and frantic North for a relaxed and easy-going sunny French lifestyle.

David Seymour explains some of the attractions of living in France.
"Several shops and small businesses, as well as a few private houses, sport half-sized Santa Claus figures shinning up ropes fixed to the gutters. Next year I'll get one myself, but I also need a stuffed wolf to put at the bottom of the rope to make it more exciting." Mike Kingdom-Hockings tells of his Joyeux Noël in France.
