Help Guides

Connexion help guides are written by our journalists, who have all experienced a move to France first-hand. Some have done so recently, with issues fresh in their mind, others have gathered up to 15 years of experience and knowledge from answering readers’ questions and absorbing the culture. The help guides are aimed primarily at Britons living in France or those in the UK interested in moving here.

Guides include Moving to and Living in France, Healthcare in France, Local Taxes in France, French Inheritance Law, Pensions in France and France's Wealth Tax. They are updated and revised every year to include new developments and laws. The guides are general in nature aimed at providing an introduction to and overview of important subjects relevant to life in France.

We also publish an annual glossy calendar and a puzzle book.

If you select the PDF download option the guide(s) will be available immediately after purchase* via a button at the bottom of your 'My Account' space (* unless otherwise stated in the information about the guide).

'My Account' is accessed using the button at the top right of the website when logged in.
