An affordable city, of a manageable size, close to the sea… does that remind you of anywhere in particular? Yes, Bordeaux is the city most often mentioned by employees who are thinking of moving elsewhere to work.
According to a survey carried out in October by the Institut Opinionway for the Société Foncière des Régions, one in two employees is considering moving to a city with a lower cost of living.
Also mentioned are the dynamism of the labour market and a reduction in commuting time. ‘And, while we’re at it, a city of “manageable size”, close to the sea’.
In fact, the ideal city is Bordeaux, which is number one in the list of cities mentioned by the surveyed employees as a place where they could easily imagine living and working, ahead of Nantes, Lyon and Marseille.
