Hi I’m new here. I found a topic close to this one earlier which prompted me to sign up but I can’t find it again.
My husband and I live in New Orleans. We’re considering moving to an area near Sarlat for at least a year. We found a little place we’d like to rent that costs 300 euros/month and our question is if we have that amount in addition to our rent ea month can we survive there?
We’re also curious if the political urban/rural divide is similar to the US. We are sincerely hoping not. We are politically progressive and are hoping we’ll find some folks who understand that we’re not the Americans that seem to make the news a lot these days (I’m trying hard not to offend in that statement as I’m new here and not sure what the policies or leanings of most folks here are.)
Our french is very light but we’re working hard on it. One of my life’s goals is to read Zola in his own language. We understand that there is a large Brit ex pat community in the area and nothing against them but we are hoping to assimilate not remain part of a "colony."
Any info you can share would be a great help to us. Many thanks,
