Parler Paris–your taste of life in Paris and France

======= SPECIAL FRIDAY EDITION ======
Dear Parler Paris Reader,
Every now and then, there is something so special to communicate to you, that I take the liberty to publish a “Special Friday Edition” of Parler Paris. In fact, I miss our Friday missives which at one time were devoted to Property in France — unfortunately they were done away with several months ago to allow time to publish the information-rich e-zine, French Property Insider (FPI), broadcast every Thursday, and chock full of important news about buying and owning property in France.
Those of you who do not subscribe, miss out on much of the valuable insights. As the editor of FPI, when I make that fatal click that launches the publication to its subscriber base, I often regret that the Parler Paris audience isn’t getting it and what I think is the real “meat” of living in France.
So today, as a special taste, I bring you a small part of yesterday’s FPI — a reprint (with special permission) of an article published just this past Wednesday in Forbes.com, written by David Andelman, Executive Editor.
Andelman recently joined Forbes from the New York Daily News where he was Business Editor. Previous posts included impressive positions with Small Cap Center and Bloomberg News, including 12 years as a foreign correspondent for the New York Times and seven years as Paris Correspondent for CBS News.
Strategiy.com wrote about Andelman: “During his 30 years in the news industry, Andelman has covered some of the world’s most significant global issues including all U.S.-Soviet summit conferences and Geneva talks on weapons reductions during the early and mid-80′s and interviews with public figures from around the globe.”
David Andelman’s love of Paris brings him here from time to time. It was his last trip over the Christmas holidays, when he rented an apartment from Parismarais.com that inspired this article about Americans, particularly retirees, purchasing property in Paris.
Pascal Fonquernie, Director of Parismarais.com, contributed important information to the article — the benefits retirees in France enjoy, which was published in its entirety in FPI yesterday. If you’re considering making the move to retire here, soon or even in the future, then you will be happy to learn of some of the advantages the over ’60′s crowd can enjoy.
You should also know that with the help of Pascal and his team, we write and publish the Parismarais newsletter — “Loving Life in Le Marais,” issued the 15th of every month. It’s free and there is a link to subscribe on the Parler Paris Web site or scroll down to “Further Resources” and click directly to subscribe.
Below is David Andelman’s article I think you will all enjoy reading and find very useful. Below that, in “Further Resources,” you will find links to information about some of what David refers. And if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
A la prochaine…
P.S. I hope to see many of you next Tuesday for coffee and conversation at Parler Paris Après Midi from 3 to 5 p.m. Visit /parlerparis/apresmidi.html for details.
