Unless you have immediate family in France, the key to moving there is to find a job first and have your employer sponsor you for a visa. This is not an easy task, especially from a distance.

To some extent, your ability to find a job is going to depend on your line of work and your qualifications. (The French are nuts about formal qualifications - to a large extent, qualifications are more important than experience, even.) It's also pretty much a given that you will have to speak French at least at a conversational level unless you can get your current employer to transfer you to France.

Permanent residency is not available until you've lived in France for a few years (currently around 5 years, though this varies). The key hurdle is getting the entry visa.
Cheers,
Bev
