The Fast-Track to Life in France
Experience A Life-Changing Weekend
The International Living Paris Office Presents
Dear Parler Paris Reader,
If you've ever dreamed of "la vie française," perhaps moving to a quaint medieval walled village, or a county cottage in Provence with a lavender bordered walkway, starting a new creative life in Paris, enjoying a "pied-à-terre" of your own part of the year and renting the rest… or investing in property anywhere in France, this power-packed conference is a MUST.
In just three days you can have all the tools that you need to totally transform your normal life... into la vie française…And you can do it without leaving the USA.
Adrian Leeds, editor of Parler Paris and French Property Insider, has put together a dream team of experts with the experience to help you get to where you want to go…France.
In one weekend, you can have all of the information and assistance that you need to make your French dreams come true. Adrian has lined up an impressive array of experts to help you during a complete weekend of seminars, workshops, discussions, dinner, and cocktails -- with well-known French, European and U.S. -based experts who can show you ...
How to Obtain the Right to Be in France
No Passport Required Live & Invest in France
Because this conference is centrally located for anyone in the US, in Washington, D.C., it's a breeze for you to attend. Whatever you want to know about living and investing in France, you can learn without even leaving the country in one information-packed weekend.
France offers you the best possible lifestyle, relaxed and sophisticated… a world apart from anywhere else on this planet. From the sun-drenched beaches of the Riviera… the pastoral peacefulness of Provence and Languedoc-Roussillon… and the cosmopolitan elegance of the City of Light… France has it all.
That's why France is the most popular tourist destination in the world drawing well over 70 million visitors each year. But for many people - and you may be one of them - visiting is not enough. You want to live there.
Your feelings are totally understandable. Indeed, I share them with you. If you are a regular reader of International Living or Parler Paris, you ar
e probably aware that I am in the process of moving to France with my family now.
And why I am I moving there? It's really about the quality of life that France offers.
Living In France Is Not As Expensive As You Think… And It Is Extraordinarily Rich!
Bill Bonner, the founder of International Living, has chosen to make France his home.
Why France? Bill says it's because of the French style of life, "…people here focus their energy on the quality of life rather than the cost of living. Things like tradition...fine wine, good food...lasting friendships and entertaining conversation...these are the things that matter here."
A Century Worth of Experience in One Value-Packed Weekend
The International Living Paris Team will arrive in Washington, D.C., September 10 - 12 to share with you their experience, insider tips, trusted contacts… and even their embarrassing missteps (so you can avoid them) when you are on your way to better living and profitable investing in France.
You are invited to be to be part of our first Living and Investing in France Seminar to be held in the U.S. capital. The Paris Team is coming to D.C. to make life simpler for you. We'll meet at the Westin Grand, a perfect location for getting down to business about moving to, living in, working from or investing in France.
Adrian Leeds has put together a world-class line up of speakers - with well over a century of combined experience living in France - to give you the ultimate insiders French insights. Adrian has lived and worked in France for 10 years and has headed International Living's Paris office for the last three years. Her wealth of experience will pay off for everyone who attends this conference. But that's just the beginning… You'll hear from trustworthy legal, financial, cultural, tax, tourism, and real estate experts.
If I could only give you one piece of advice about taking the leap to live, work or invest in France, I would tell you this, "learn everything you can before you go. Prepare yourself thoroughly. Arm yourself with information and options. And there's no better way to do that than by attending IL's Living and Investing in France Conference." The upcoming conference in D.C. will let you do it without crossing the Atlantic. It doesn't get much easier than that.
Why hard assets, commodities, foreign currencies, colored diamonds, natural gas, global real estate - and even trees - are going to be the safest and strongest investments in the next 5 year …
The Shortest Pathway to French Property Profits
You'll discover the ultimate shortcuts to find your perfect property investment in France with the help of Jocelyn Carnegie, our Property Sales Manager.
Jocelyn commits every day to helping IL readers in their search for their dream French property. You'll profit from his wealth of experience. From Parisian pied-à-terres and stone maisons in Languedoc-Roussillon to a petite vineyard or grand château… Jocelyn relentlessly hunts down great properties for readers. You'll be presented with his latest property market insights.
You'll get the answers to your most pressing questions… Where are the property hot spots? What's still undervalued? Where can you find the fastest appreciation rates? What to buy that insures your success in the short-term rental market?
And Jocelyn has a wealth of experience to share with you at the conference. You see… he worked five years as a residential property negotiator, buying and selling properties in the 300,000 Euro to 5 million Euro range for a major corporation.
And for a decade after that he helped put together industrial development projects in Eastern and Central Europe and Russia.
But even better Jocelyn thoroughly understands the needs of the individual investor. He's managed his family's property rental business and tripled the value of his portfolio in less than ten years. When you hear him speak you'll understand well the tremendous advantage his experience offers anyone interested in property investing in France.
Because of the attractiveness of France to people all over the world - especially Europeans - property values have been rising in France an average of 10% per year for a long time. And the most popular destinations, such as Paris, the Côte d'Azur and Provence are gaining value at a much faster rate - as much as 17% annually. When you hear Jocelyn speak about "ride the wave" in booming French real estate market, you'll know how to find property now that will appreciate quickly.
At the Living and Investing in France conference, you'll learn much more than just where and how to buy, you'll learn what you need to do after you find the place of your dreams and what you should consider before investing.

In other words… we'll cover just about everything you could want to know about living and investing in France in one enjoyable weekend.

He consults with some of the world's largest insurance brokers, advising insurance brokers and benefits consultants.

This is the easiest way to start investing in your French future now. If you don't already know about the French Leaseback program, this one feature of the conference could be worth more than the entire cost of this weekend. It has so many powerful benefits that my husband, Lief Simon, and I just invested in this program ourselves. It could be the perfect way for you to get a foothold on French soil… and a great way to invest a portion of your retirement portfolio with great security and strong profit potential. And there is no downside to the French Leaseback Program at all. It's simply a wonderful way to invest in a place you'll love.

Attendees Love This Conference
I could go on and on about all you'll learn at the conference and the terrific people that you will meet… including our outstanding team of presenters, but I'd rather let you hear what attendees at our most recent conference in San Francisco had to say about their experience.
"It is so nice to find the information and resources we need in one place, instead of wasting hours upon hours searching the Web, making phone calls, etc. Plus, coming from real people who really live in or have emigrated to France (and other parts of Europe), makes everything presented much more credible and exciting. I am so glad I attended!" M. Matz
"Thirza's slide show was a tour de force. What a lot of work for her and what a lot of knowledge for all of us! Naturally Jocelyn knew his stuff and imparted it eloquently. But Adrian, you were the best. As emcee, you did a great job and all the practical tips you gave and stories about your experiences were fantastic. I feel like I've actually been to Paris!" S. Snyder
"I was originally was quite skeptical of the value of this conference as I've been to many over the years and the ones that are worth even the time, let alone the cost, are few and far between. This one was an exception. Very well organized with incredibly interesting and knowledgeable speakers. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute and have already begun making use of some of the great information you provided. My family and I have been to France many, many times over the years and only just dreamed about actually owning a piece of it. But now, thanks to your conference, I think we'll just go ahead and do it!" F. Yelverton
"I have been newly inspired to begin my move to Paris. The seminar in San Francisco in March was truly the most worthwhile, informational event I've attended. I have taken the next step of consulting with my financial advisor on available assets for the move. Thank you for the encouragement the seminar provided. Thanks again for the fabulous information the seminar provided and for the shot in the arm each day from Parler Paris!!" M. Bills
"....What can i say, except...excellent...the conference was much much more than I could have ever imagined...thank you and International Living for putting on such an exceptional conference...the format was great and the presenters were professional and very well prepared..I gained an enormous amount of knowledge; and it was just the sort of information that i was searching for...i can't say for sure that I am ready to make the move to Paris, but i will be visiting much more often...again, thank you, thank you, thank you..." K. Howard
