France is famed for its exquisite cuisine, romantic ambience, and cultural richness. While the charm of the Eiffel Tower and the allure of its vineyards are known to many, there’s a unique way of experiencing the French dream – living permanently in a static caravan or mobile home. The question then arises: Is it feasible?
At Caravans in the Sun, we offer a solution that combines the comfort of home with the magic of French landscapes.
Static Caravans and Mobile Homes: A Modern Alternative
Before diving into the details, it’s vital to understand what we’re discussing. Unlike traditional caravans, static caravans and mobile homes are stationary structures designed for long-term living. They are spacious, well-equipped, and built to be as comfortable as a traditional home, but with the added advantage of being nestled in some of the most scenic locations France has to offer.

While the idea of living permanently in a static caravan in France is enticing, there are aspects to keep in mind:
Legal Implications: France has regulations around residency, taxes, and property ownership. Before considering a permanent move, it’s crucial to understand these nuances.
Lifestyle Adjustment: Living in a static caravan or mobile home park offers a unique lifestyle. There’s a sense of community, closer proximity to nature, and potentially fewer urban amenities.
