Very helpful and informative, gave me some areas to think about which I had not thought about. Easy to read, would recommend to those wishing to retire to France.

I spend my weekends here. I am not retired but this book covers it. If you are choosing to retire in France this is the only book you will need.
I am between France and USA, but this book will help. The author has a passion for this great country.

Not going to france 12 Dec 2007
By an open mind - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This one helped me avoid a major mistake. It is thorough and not politically corect. It is very to the point. I'll still go on vacation, but definately not to live. Best dough I spent recently. If you are even considering living in France, get this book!!!! You may end up going, but your choice will be way more informed. The further references are very good, and inspires further examination of taxes and various governmental issues - which the book just about demands. Very, very useful. Great book. I am definately not going to live in France.

Format: Paperback
All it does is inventory a few facts found on the internet. No useful insights.
