Episode notes

This week we explain everything from... France's famous Droit du Sol and why it's caused a political row, to how you could lose your newly acquired status as a French citizen.

We look at the struggle of French villages to hold on to their boulangeries, whether the guillotine could ever make a comeback in France and explain why Monaco on the French Riviera is known as a playground for the rich, the famous and the tax dodgers.

We also break down the complicated topic of energy ratings for French homes and explain why they are really, really important for both renters and buyers.

Host Ben McPartland os joined by The Local France's team of experts Emma Pearson, Gen Mansfield and John Lichfield.
