Hello everyone. We are considering to move to Frejus/St Raphael from Pezenas/Beziers area. After I read all I can find here, I see that the posts are over 10 years old. We are a family of 3 with a one year old and two dogs. Would you say that it's easy to find expat friends and french friends  that have small kids? Overall would you say it's a family friendly place with things to do for kids? We love outdoors and we also like to go to restaurants. Also if anyone can recommend a good english speaking realtor, that would be fantastic! Thank you in advance. Svetlana.

Hello, my husband and I have currently moved to Nice (where I am originally from) after 25 years working overseas as humanitarian workers. My husband is Irish and we have decided to move to Valbonne, Biot where there are public schools with international sections and where children come from different backgrounds to ease our own children's adjustment. We will look to buy a property in this area but we want to rent for a year or so first to get to know the region, does anyone have some advice on where to live in Valbonne, Sofia or Biot to fall within a catchment area with a good primary public school? I hear the school Iles verte is very good but I am unable to find any rental nearby this school. Any info, tips on rental in these towns would also be highly appreciated. Thank you very much for taking the time to share your experience. Hosna and Keith

My daughter has just been accepted for the international section at Eganaude. I'm really disappointed as I was supposing that all children from Cagnes would go to CIV. I've heard so many bad things about l'Eganaude that I'm rather concerned. Plus the whole fact that it is not really an international school but just one English section class really bothers me. Can anyone give a clear opinion based on facts? Thanks

Hi all,My family and I are moving to Mouans-Sartoux later this month with our two pre-schoolers. I want to enrol them in one of the local maternelles publiques and see that there are three in Mouans-Sartoux. Ideally I'd like a smallish maternelle, with a warm vibe and a little mix of children, including some international. Is anyone familiar with the Mouans-Sartoux pre-schools and could suggest which of the places would be best?I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions!Thanks,Natasha

Hello Everyone,I would like to ask if someone can share information on nice 'alternative' bilingual education in or around Monaco? I'm looking for a small scale school with attention to languages/art/music..etc. I am aware of the school in Beausoleil for small children, but can't find Elementary/Secondary schools of this kind. Thanks a lot for your help!

We are moving from Aix en Provence in search of better international school opportunities for our (now) bilingual children. We are very seriously considering ISN. There are previous comments in this forum, but I would like any updated comments please as to your own experience at the school. For example, I have read that the school appears run down, but the children are very happy. Do the students work hard or is it easy to just slide through? Obviously there is the IB at the end, but we have a school in Aix offering the IB that is not particularly "serious". Could you tell me if/where your child has gone on to university afterwards? It seems to be small in student numbers. Does the school offer enough diversity or is it "claustrophobic" by having a small student body? Thank you for your reponses!!!

Good MorningWe are moving back to South of France from UK by end of November, depending on the job offer, we will either be working in Cannes or Beaulieu Sur Mer. Could anyone recommend a nursery for our 2 year old boy. We do not need it to be bi-lingual (neither of us speak French nor does our 2 year old), we are happy for it to be French Speaking for our little one but would need the teacher to be able to speak good English at least to be able to communcate with us on how he is  doing? Obviously the ideal would be an English speaking Nursery but as I said, we are aware we are living in France!Recommendations for Cannes or Beaulieu Sur Mer area would be amazing. My wife would also be interested in meeting any other mums with children aged 2-4 in those areas also.
