France - Poitou-Charentes

Brits test drive an alternative life in Europe. Buyers from Sheffield hope to start a new life in the Poitou-Charentes region of France.

As economic woes mount, poor weather lingers and the pace and stress of life in the UK spirals, many Brits are asking whether a new life under Mediterranean skies is worth considering.

Taking a variety of contributors, couples, new parents, retirees or those just seeking a life change, the show provides an opportunity to test-drive what an alternative life could look like in a totally new, sunny clime. The programme showcases gorgeous, competitively priced homes, stunning locations, amenities, potential employment openings and leisure opportunities on foreign shores. Clearly it isn't all blue skies and sangria, so a good dose of reality takeout is explored too offering information on issues such as property law, local taxation and healthcare.

In this episode, Nicki Chapman crosses the channel to property shop with buyers from Sheffield who are hoping to start a new life abroad in the Poitou-Charentes region of France. Nicki offers up some helpful tips on moving to France and visits the home of one of the world's best-known brandies.
