Real Estate Tips and More on Moving to Aix-en-Provence
By Sophia Mose:
Newcomers to Aix-en-Provence as well as people considering a move to this popular town just inland from Marseille tend to have a lot of questions about moving to Aix-en-Provence or living there – which neighbourhoods are the nicest or closest or greenest, the property market in and around Aix, social events, information about the public schools and international schools, how to find a babysitter, dog sitter, or recommendations for an English speaking doctor, dentist, gardener or plumber. The list goes on.
Ask a Local
To support the local community with their questions and to facilitate the organization of social events and meetups, health and wellness coach Sophia Mose started a Facebook support group in May 2018, where questions and answers about moving to Aix en Provence, properties for sale and rent, tips and recommendations, meet-ups and get-togethers are shared with all members. Events organized include a weekly coffee meetup for women, a bi-weekly apéro (drinks), yoga in the park and several impromptu meetups such as a girl’s night out in town. As of early 2020, the group has almost 3000 members. It is called Moving to Aix-en-Provence (registered trademark). This group page is filled with useful tips and questions that other expats have asked about schools, doctors, parking and much more.
