France welcomes over 70 million visitors each year. France is a country proud of its culture, history and art. Life in a French town or village offers many people values and a quality they do not find elsewhere and France is the most popular country in the world to visit and for consideration for a new life.
Each department of France has a unique character, even towns a few miles apart can give a very different lifestyle and have differing values.
Recognising the importance of visitors to the French economy, rules and laws are set to ensure their fair treatment.
