Budgeting for Healthcare
Living in France
The quality of life in France is exceptional, with a highly developed infrastructure, excellent schools and one of the best healthcare systems in the world.
In our 2016 Expat Explorer Survey, France was ranked 36th out of 45 countries for expat economics. But it’s the lifestyle rather than high salaries that draws many people and France came 5th overall for its good work-life balance. Locals place great emphasis on ‘joie de vivre’ and French cuisine is renowned across the globe. The country is also famous for its fine wines – and its sun-drenched resorts along the Côte D’Azur are a magnet for the world’s glitterati.
