US citizen - Stay in France longer than 1 year - how?

Jump to last reply

I am a US citizen in my 60s and want to spend more than a year in France. I will not be trying to earn money there: I have savings and sufficient income to cover expenses. I would study French if I found an affordable program (ie, aimed at the young and penniless) and otherwise will find ways to live as cheaply as possible.

Is there any way to get permission to stay for longer than a year?

If not, what are some alternatives?

Does owning property in France help when it comes to getting permission to stay? (I do not own any property there at this time.)
