About Us

The Good Life France is an independent on line magazine about France and all things French.

The Good Life France is:

A guide to living in France for English speaking expats – covering all aspects of daily life from healthcare, finance, utilities, education and property – plus a whole lot more.

A source of inspiration for visitors to and expats in France with ideas for places to go, holidays and things to do – from  the Louvre in Paris to the Louvre in Lens, from the Mediterranean beaches in the south to the Opal Coast in the north – and everything in between.

Started in 2012, www.thegoodlifefrance.com is a rapidly growing site which has readers all over the world – predominantly US, UK, Australia, Europe (and a large expats in France and French following) but with growing numbers from South Africa, Japan and Russia. The informative articles about property, living, holidays, things to do and culture have a wide appeal to those who want to visit or live in France.

We are not a property sales site and do not include property pages in our page numbers – all of our features are editorial.

Our writing team (30+ regular writers and increasing) are largely based in France, and our features are professional, entertaining and informative  - we have an expat expert in almost every region of France.

With numerous guides about the daily life essentials put together with help from a panel of experts we cover buying property and getting a mortgage, utilities, travel, technology and much more. We are here to help expats and visitors navigate their way round the administrative systems of France whether its opening a bank account, finding a great school or arranging healthcare – everything you need is here in one place.

Whether you come to stay for a day or forever we will help you make the most of your time with our holiday and arts guides, events calendars, cultural and language guides, fabulous recipes and information about French gastronomy and regional guides.

Content is added daily and our team of writers aim to provide you with a view of France like no other with fantastic photographs and their insider’s tips.
