People move to France for all sorts of reasons – whether it's for love, a university course, a job, or even a ski slope. Give it a few months and you'll start to display symptoms of having joined one expat tribe or another. But which one do you belong to?

There are a fair few expat clans out there in France and you'll find them in Paris and Provence, in banks and on beaches, in galleries or gourmet restaurants. You'll  find them in Irish pubs hunched over a warm beer, museum-crawling with a love-sick expression on their face, or else racing down their favourite ski slope in the Alps.

There is a group for everyone. Which one do you fit most with? Let us know if we've missed any out. Click below to view our gallery of expat tribes in France.
