Dennelle Taylor-Nizoux

President of Renestance

Dennelle is a bilingual American who’s lived in France for 14 years and adores the South of France, which in many ways reminds her of her native California. She worked in management for 15 years in a global telecommunications company, in roles as varied as Finance, Strategic Development, Marketing and Project Management. She first became interested in providing solutions to English-speaking retirees in France when she was researching the possibility of moving her parents closer to her family and their only grandchildren.

Dennelle believes that Renestance will allow you to benefit from the exceptional quality of life in France, without all the hassle, and live out your retirement dream.
