Information, inspiration and support to design a 2 - 24 month stay in France with your family while continuing to work. 

Travel Deeply.

When we decided to relocate to France with our 11 year old daughter for a year, we started to look for information on what school and village life was like, how to adjust to the culture, get the most out of our time, and logistics like how to rent a car for several months that didn't break the bank!

Most information we found catered to childless, wandering digital nomads or young families who world-schooled. That wasn't us. Where was the information for families in our situation?

We had a school-aged child and a cat. We wanted to travel but also have a home base where we could have some routines, connect with a local community, immerse ourselves in the culture, learn the language, and legally run a business in France.

With our first year under our belts, we created Baguette Bound  to pass on what we've learned. We hope to make it easier, feel possible, and inspire other families who are interested experiencing a long stay in France with their family.
