We have finally decided, in all of our world wanderings (we are outdoor pursuits instructors), that the French Alps is somewhere that we would really like to call home. We have found a tiny apartment that we could buy outright (so no mortgage needed - those years of saving hard might now be paying off!) And would appreciate it if anyone could point us at a French site that would explain the process to becoming residents here?
On a separate note, we applied for our social security numbers this time last year but have still not heard anything. Where should we go to to enquire further, would this be the mairie or is there a phone number?
Thanks in advance
