But what about the psychological challenges and changes you are likely to face, just what do you have to do to make a success of starting anew in another country?
It is from this direction that Suzanne Saxe-Roux and her husband, Jean Roux, come from in their book, Courage and Croissants.
Despite both enjoying successful careers on the west coast of the United States, worries and fears begin to grow as they spend less time together and with their daughter, and so they decide to make a move to Provence.
Drawing on their experiences as life and executive coaches, both Suzanne and Jean face different challenges when in France, although their daughter Zoe-Pascale seems to take everything in her stride.
Courage and Croissants is both a story of the family's move to a new country and also offers advice and actionable steps that people can take to get through some of the difficult times, such as travel uncertainties, thefts and health worries.
Suzanne brings together her observations about French life with what she has learned, whether it is focussing on quality time as a family or challenging many of her fears and making time for people.
The book concludes with a number of pages featuring tips and steps you can take whether you are close to making a move, or already in the process of starting a new life in France.
