Hello from Gill and Ken, in our 60s, hoping and planning to move from London to Caen later this year.
We're both Francophiles. Gill originally trained as a linguist and more recently a postgrad TEFL diploma, but not sure if/how teaching or translation would work in France. I was a business journalist for 30 years, recently working in PR and corporate comms, but now semi-retired on health grounds, with just occasional freelance work.
Our plan is to find an apartment to rent for the long term – up to €1000 a month (no capital to buy, but we have been renters for many years since our business went bust). We've been prospecting, seen a few decent apartments in a couple of areas (eg Quartier Hastings) but we can't make a move until Gill gets her company retirement package in a few months time.
All advice, hints, suggestions etc welcome.
