Cost of Living in France

Cost Of Living In France

How much you spend on living costs in France each month will depend on your own lifestyle and where you plan to take up residence. Opting for the highlife in Paris is likely to make larger holes in any budget than modest tranquility in a quiet corner of France, such as the Charentes or the Auvergne.

With respect to phone, internet and basic cable TV, you can usually get a “package deal” that drives the cost even lower—sometimes as low as €60 ($65) a month (or less) for all three…including calls to the U.S. and UK.

 

Note: The exchange rate used here is $1.30 = 1 euro.
