HOW many British people live in the Dordogne? It is 7,198 according to the French statistics authority, INSEE.
Using census figures from 2016, the research body claims that the Dordogne is the second most popular place for British people to live in, behind Paris.
Overall, there are around 148,000 British residents in France, with the majority living along the western side of the country.
The vast majority of British people in the Dordogne have been living here for more than ten years, with 53% of those retirees, and across Nouvelle-Aquitaine there are just over 39,000 resident British people, making up 26% of the total number of British people in France.
At a Dordogne level the area around Eymet is the most popular destination for British people living the département, with nine per cent of the local population made up of British, with Ribérac the next most popular with around 4.3%.
The figures show a sharp increase in the number of British people resident in Dordogne between 1999 and 2006, with around 3,000 at the end of the 90s heading upwards to just over 7,000 in 2016.
Whether Brexit will put a break on this remains to be seen, but with many British in France relying on freedom of movement rules to live and work here, it seems likely that the numbers moving to l'hexagone will fall.
