Hello I have a young family and we are looking at moving to Antibes in June/July 2018. My kids will be 9 and 6. I'm worried about the schooling as we cannot afford the international schools and my kids do not speak French (yet). Is there many options for them in that area?

Hey Mums (and dads). I've just started up a new Riviera Mums group on Facebook as there are always so many people who are looking for new 'friends with kids' in the expat community. These groups have been a great way for us to meet new little friends for our dude (and for us!) in the Cote d'Azur. Please feel free to join the group, if you have a FB account!

Does anyone know of a mummy/baby club around Valbonne/Grasse/Sophia Antipolis?My baby is due in a month and I'd love to meet some fellow mums, share some experiences, and attend classes/ playdates with my little girl when she's here so she can interact with other babies. I don't have a lot of friends here as I haven't lived here for very long, so any recommendations for social baby-friendly activities are appreciated! Thank you.

Hi Does any one know what the French primary school in La Colle- sur-Loup is like? We have an 8 year old and are thinking of full immersion into the French system to give her a chance to learn French and integrate quicker... Any personal experience or perhaps recommendations on other FRENCH schools in the area that have a good reputation for supporting foreign kids who have very little or no French at all. We are moving from the UK. thank you in advance!

Could anyone please advise if treatment by the UK NHS is no longer available after obtaining a Carte Vital in France.We are UK pensioners and house holders in France who seem to be spending most of our time here. However, as I need monthly medication for a heart problem, I have visit a local doctor for a prescription. With his charges and the prescription, the cost is around €70.oo per month. I have been advised to obtain a Carte Vital, but have been told that once issued, we will lose our right to NHS treatment in the U.K. until we have been resident in UK once again for 6 months.This is worrying as it means we would lose cover when we travel home for visits.Any advice will be gratefully received.
