We all come to France for our own reasons, but The Local's observations have led us to conclude that most experts fall into one of these ten categories.

From those recreating England in Dordogneshire, to the businessmen and women in the corporate districts of Paris, to those who were whisked off their feet and overseas by a French lover, everyone has their own story of what led them to make their home in France. Some might even be mistaken for natives, but don't be fooled.
