moving from uk to gard region, need advice and friends

Recommended Posts

Hi there, we are looking at a property near Uzes in Gard and I would love to hear from any brits that have moved there specially mums with young kiddies.  My husband speaks fluent French I only speak a tiny bit!!!  we have a two year old and a baby on route. Hoping to move over there in January so our little one will be 3 and the baby 7 months.  I only know about the area through the internet. Im worried about having a young baby and not being able to speak the language specially if I need a doctor or God forbid a hospital!!  Do the health centres in that area speak English?  Its going to be hard to begin with so I really will need some support of friends, that I will hopefully meet that already live there or around that area.  I hope this forum will help me out. Any advice would be appreciated!!!

Can't really offer advice, but I recall one summer day a few years ago, when we found ourselves (accidentally) in Uzès on the day of the horse-running through the streets. The town was packed, and at lunch-time the restaurants were doing great business - as long as you wanted moules-frites!  A lovely day, and the town seemed very pleasant. I hope you enjoy it.

You've obviously settled on this area and I'm sure that you'll be very happy here.  Your concerns over healthcare are understandable with two very young children, but I can only speak from experience in this very area:

  • our GP is German, excellent and speaks fluent English
  • our dentist has good (if less than fluent) English
  • absolutely no idea re arrangements for very young children, but doubt that they're primitive

Do pm me if you'd like any further info or just a chat about the area. Would be happy to try to allay any fears or research any specifics for you.
