Really Confused - Please help

4 Replies

Hi     We are moving to France before 31st December.  Our house purchase is underway as is the sale of our UK home.  We are going to convert a barn into gites which will provide our income.  We understand that to prove residency we will also need medical insurance but have also seen that we can apply for French cover if we have a business which we will have once we have converted the barn.  Do we need full medical insurance for the first few months or is travel insurance enough please or do we need insurance at all if we are starting a business?  What do we need to do to start a business and get the state health cover please?  If we have to get private medical cover which companies are best please based on cost?  Any advice would be very much appreciated.  Many thanks

Hi Elvina

I felt very sad that no one has answered you and so here i am, first i am not sure i can answer any of the questions  but i have lived close to Saint Gaudens for 8 years and second, Angloinfo used to be a really great site and lots of us expats used it.

Unfortunatly they changed the way they did things and now nobody really uses it any more, i just happen to see it pop up in a search i was doing and here you are asking for help a month ago? are you still moving here and if you would like to chat about the area i would be happy to help in any way i can.

Hi Sharon    Thanks so much for the message and yes we are still moving to Saint Gaudens.  I would love to chat.  For some reason the link to your details isnt working so could you please message me and we can swap email addresses?  Looking forward to hearing from you.  Many thanks  Elvina

Hi Elvina

It seems that personal messaging no longer works on this platform ; I sent a message soon after your initial posting . I can probably help.
