Renesting in France Seminar, Montpellier
Friday 23 March 2018
Are you a North American considering a move to the Languedoc or already living here?
This full-day seminar will cover essential information to making your life in the region a success. We’re bringing in our partners to present their subjects of expertise, so you can be sure you’re getting the most complete and accurate information.
The following topics will be examined:
- Financial, Tax, and Insurance issues – avoiding costly mistakes
- Healthcare in France – the system and coverage options
- Purchasing property – differences in France
- Renting (and renting out) property – what you need to know
- Immigration/residency issues – what are your options
- Volunteering and Social life – meeting people like you
- Learning French – different approaches
- Sports and Leisure – how to pursue your passion
- Culture and Regional discovery – getting to know the ‘real South of France’
The sessions will be highly interactive, allowing you to get answers to the questions that matter most to everyone. You will also have the opportunity to reserve one-on-one slots with the subject matter experts to discuss your specific situation.
There will be a welcome breakfast and a delicious lunch, besides a few breaks with refreshments during the day. During these times, you will be able to chat with members of the Renestance team, our partners and fellow attendees. Newcomers always appreciate the chance to speak with more seasoned residents.
All of the presentations will be printed out, so you can refer to them later at home. There will be many other resources available for you to dive deeper after the seminar.
The venue for the seminar is the elegant Villa Mont Riant, a maison de maître in a wooded park, just 300 meters from the SNCF train station in Montpellier. The cost is €200/person, €150 for the second person in a couple. Spaces are limited, so please register now if you plan to attend.
Insider Tours of the Languedoc
If you’ve heard about some nice places to live in the Languedoc, but would like to get a feel for them yourself (without wasting time in tourist traps or getting lost!), join us for one or two of the full-day regional excursions Renestance has designed especially for you.
We’ll meet up near a public transportation hub and cover the towns mainly on foot (some public transportation possible). Your bilingual guide will provide insider tips to life in those areas (which bakery has the best croissants, how to get around, where do the Anglos hang out, etc.) as well as information on their property markets. If you have mobility issues, we do not recommend these tours, but we’d be happy to arrange a custom tour for you – firstname.lastname@example.org.
