Moving to France Beware of Local Traditions

If you are one of the many Britons who are thinking of moving to France to begin a new life, the chances are you will have already spent many years taking holidays there. This is usually how people form an attachment to a particular town or region, but before you rush headlong into buying a property there are some important factors you should take into account before moving to France. We have to be realistic about this, because there have been many stories of people leaving Britain to set up a new home in a rural idyll only to find that the reality can be very different to the dream.

Ten years ago, a friend of mine moved with his family to the Limousine region and was initially delighted by the reception they received from the locals. Everyone was very friendly, to the extent that when my friend mentioned he was carrying out some building work on the property he had bought his new friends immediately offered their help. The thing is, a couple of weeks later when he was relaxing in the afternoon sun, his neighbour arrived at the front door and demanded  that he come and help with some work at his home.

You could argue that this kind of thing will happen if you were planning on moving to Holland or moving to Germany, but apparently this is the local tradition in Limousine. If someone does you a favour, they can demand ‘repayment’ at anytime, so be warned!

European Property Renovation – Things to Consider

Despite the effects of the recession, European property renovation is still a viable way to facilitate a move to another country in Europe – and not only is it a great excuse for e.g. Moving to Belgium or moving to France, but it can be a lot of fun too.

Some places in Europe will be better destinations for a property renovation project than others; for example, the reason why when we think of European property renovations we think of France, and that is because, uniquely, France has an abundance of old “character” properties just waiting to be snapped up by eager Brits relocating to France.

With the French experience in mind then, is European property renovation a good idea? Well this demands squarely on your own commitment to moving to France to live in a renovated property. As quite simply, renovation will always be a real challenge despite the abundance of suitable properties throughout Europe.

There are many things that will make a renovation project difficult – from the red tape that is common in a country like France in particular, and of course the language barrier. However all these problems can easily be surmounted and if you are able to foster a genuinely good relationship with builders (or masons) etc, then you really do have a real shot at building a dream home.

Whatever your reasons for moving to France or anywhere in Europe, whether it’s for property renovation or otherwise, with Europe Remove we like to think that we take all the hassle out of moving day.
