Bonjour! Hello! My husband and I are considering moving to france. He is a passionate angler, and I, a passionate equestrian. We’ve come across properties which could satisfy both these needs but would like to hear from fellow brits who have taken the plunge and moved to France. All of the chats I’ve found seems to be from 5 to 10 years old. I’d like to have some more up to date info. merci beaucoup!

There might be a FB page for horsey ex-pats but there are a few on here who have done what you are contemplating. They'll probably be along soon.

Personally, I'd love to do it!

I'm in France !
Happy to chat but I don't compete and know diddly squat about that side of things here.
I also renovate houses so give me a shout if you want me to cast an eye over any property you've got your eye on.
Fuzzy's right. France is a big place and life in my bit is very different to life in Brittany, for example.

Salut, épouse d'un autre !

Try searching again, there are some more recent threads.

I'm both a rider and an angler, but a beginner at both (and I don't get out fishing very often, so that's unlikely to improve)...

If you've already got your eyes on a couple of properties, it will be fairly easy to find vets, dentists, suppliers of feed, fencing, etc.

I'm in Brittany, been here 13 years and love it. The only advice I can give you is to not buy any property through the SAFER however much you love it. It's just not worth the years of stress and bureaucracy that go with the slightly discounted price!
Any questions then feel free to PM me.
