Gorron is an attractive market town in northern France with a large and active English-speaking expat community.
With a population of around 3000, the area is well served by a large, and new, supermarket as well as a good selection of smaller retailers.
Other attractions in Gorron include
extensive sports facilities, a tourist office and a bustling market day.
There are various social groups that are popular with expats and the local cinema will even occasionally show films in English.
A number of local businesses are also British owned and offer products with the expat market in mind. This includes a bed shop and a store selling second-hand items, including English books and movies.
Many other French-owned firms in the area are also well-used to expat clients and there are also English-speaking health service providers to assist you.
Historically, the town was known for processing antlers and hoofs and for the production of granite.
Positioned at the north of the Mayenne Department (county), Gorron is only around 25 minutes drive from the large town of Mayenne and around 45 minutes from the city of Laval, which offers a frequent and direct train service to Paris (1 hour 40 minutes) on the super-fast TGV express.
One reason for the town’s popularity with UK expats is its proximity to the Channel ports, roughly 90 minutes away.
The rolling hills and valleys in the surrounding countryside also remind many of the British landscape.
Another appeal has been the availability of cheap properties and land.
Generally, the Mayenne Department is regarded as having some of the best bargains in France. That applies equally to a ruin ripe for renovation, or a fully-modernized chateau.
Broadband (known as ADSL in France) is available in Gorron, although outlying areas may still have dial-up only.
