Default Gorron in Mayenne - anyone know it?

Is Gorron Town Centre a good Place to buy? I have found a beautiful Property in Gorron, Mayenne, Pays-de-la-Loire. It requires work, ie fitting kitchen, decorating and loft conversion. I do not know the area at all but it looks nice and has all the amenities my family and I want. I have visited a few times and spoken to a few business owner and they said go for it.

Depends what you mean by a good place :

To live/holiday?

Nightlife?

Schools?

Jobs?

Crime rate?

Where do you live at the moment, what nationality are you and what do you intend to use the place for?

If you're retiring, there are a few other factors to take into account. I take it Gorron is fairly rural, so you may want to consider long-term requirements - such as access to medical services, transport (particularly to and from the closest large town with shopping and other resources) and your own linguistic abilities - though you mention that you've talked with people in the area, so I take it you're fairly comfortable with French.

One thing to check for is the town website (usually run by the mairie). https://gorron.org/index.php/fr/ With some careful perusal of the town website you can generally get some idea of what the "big issues" in town are, and some towns offer an online version of their town newsletter.

Thank you for your response, I appreciate it. There are a few British expats in the area. I like village life, just had it with city living and the rat race. Just want a bit of Peace and quiet. A slow pace of life, if I am honest.

You will have to wait a bit .. until you have made another post .. I think you have to have made at least 5 posts before you can send a pm.

And after you make your 5th post, give the system an hour or so to update itself to give you PM privileges. (Please don't make a nonsense post to get to your 5th.)
