We have definately decided to retire to France. Well if you call bringing 1 of the boys plus horses, dogs and cat if it lives long enough (it is 15). I am a qualified Chiropodist. Can anyone tell me if there are such things in France. I have asked around and you seem to have something similar. Also my son who will come with us is a painter and decorator with a Diploma. Is there any work for him out in France? We wont be coming for 3 years as my youngest son has to finish GCSE's and A levels. Just wondering what there is over there.
