Just joined and looking for a bit of information. I had a place in Brittany but husband wanted to sell , There were a few problems like mice, and damp problems . I felt isolated as it was in a rural spot, but could have joined French classes to try to join in with the French people and may have helped. I wanted to stay but don’t have any way to support myself. We had an offer for the cottage and my husband wanted to get out .I was wondering if I could return to France is there any help at all while I look for work and take French lessons ? I don’t mean sponge off the French system I am genuinely wanting to support myself by working . I have worked in retail most of my life . I have to find somewhere to live and it’s very expensive here to rent and live. £600 just for a months rent plus bills about 800 a month. I miss Brittany , France . In the right place a town or somewhere not too isolated I think I would ok. Does anyone have any Ideas at all for me to go back to France ? I know some of you will say stay in the UK but I don’t want to stay . I don’t have family just 2 grand daughters I can visit and they can visit me .
