For many Brits, moving to France is a dream come true.

What’s not to love — incredible cities, beautiful countryside, mountains, exquisite food and wine, a plethora of interesting characters and just a short hop over the English channel.

Sure, you might need to learn a little French — but, hey, you still remember your lessons at school, right? — and the economy isn’t the brightest beacon for job seekers, but for those looking to retire or with a self-sustaining income, a move to France is a move to paradise.

Let’s take a look.

1. Paris is one of the world’s most incredible cities

The gargoyles of Notre Dame are always keeping watch over the city.

Paris’ skyline is remarkable for the lack of skyscrapers crowding out the atmosphere.

2. And home to one of the world’s most iconic buildings

The Eiffel Tower was built in 1889 and served as the entrance to the 1889 World’s Fair.

Design experts have long snobbishly derided the tower’s aesthetic, but there’s no doubt that it’s the most enduring figure of France.

3. It’s a hub for art and culture

The Louvre is the world’s most visited museum — so popular because it’s home to the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci, as well as many other classics.

5. And an exquisite place for romance

Paris is the city of love.

Visiting lovers should take a trip to the Pont des Arts — the so-called Love Lock Bridge, which is weighed down by hundreds, if not thousands, of padlocks. People typically write their initials on the locks before attaching them to the bridge, throwing the key in the River Seine beneath.

6. The Alps are the perfect setting for some aprèsski
