English speakers close to Cannet des maures

15 Replies

OK, soooo, my name is Emma, I'm English, 38, and wondering if there is anyone else out there feeling like they are the only english person sturggling with living in France?! I've actually been living in France three years now, but just moved recently to the Var. I'm feeling really isolated and whilst I do speak ok-ish French and have nothing against having french friends ( my husband is French ) I am just really in need of finding like minded people with whom I can hang out with and speak in my mother tounge.  I'm used to living in cities, and whilst I love being in nature ( I'm a photographer but me and my husband are doing organic farming here ) I still struggle without  access to do all the things i love- pilates classes, yoga, great cafes and restaurants and a close community of friends and family on my doorstep.  If you live nearby and keen to meet up- let me know!

Hello Emma,


I am 38 and English too!


I have been here for 12 years (Bandol) and still miss the City...


We could meet in Toulon for a coffee and chat while taking in the noise of the hustle & bustle ;)

Hi Freckleface


My wife and I live in Le Thoronet, not too far from you. Our suggestion to you is to look into two organisations which will be helpful for you to make contact with fellow expats of all nationalities as well as French. The International Womens Club of Provence is based in Lorgues and has regular coffee mornings and meetings as well as activity groups on such things as gardening, hiking, tennis, bridge etc. etc. You can find them on the internet. Also there is AVF (Accueil Villes Francaises) a French initiative to bring newly arrived people together both French and foreigners, the intention being to help smooth over some of the difficulties of settling in a new place. A similar group meets every week at La Piece de Boeuf on Wednesdays at 6PM for an hour or so and is worth a try too. Good luck with that !

Hi Emma. Sadly I'm a little far from you but I'm also a photographer and enjoy gardening. I have also had trouble making friends. I'm currently close to St Remy de Provence but if you ever want to meet in Aix en Provence for a coffee or if you're ever this way feel free to message me!

Hi Emma,

My name is Florence, I have just moved to Sanary Sur Mer this week. I am from England and moved here with my boyfriend who is French and needed to come back to France for work. I am keen to improve my French (which is very basic at the moment!) but also meet like-minded and friendly English speakers to help make this transition a bit easier!

If you want to meet for a drink, maybe in Sanary or Toulon that would be lovely. My email is facarr@hotmail.co.uk
