Applicants must have a suitable property for use as their personal residence in France - either rented or purchased.It is also necessary to have suitable and sufficient private health insurance.
The visa duration is for one year initially. If you plan to stay longer, you can then apply for a carte de séjour which is a residency card renewable yearly. Once you have spent 5 years as a resident of France, and you continue to comply with all of the requirements, you may apply for a carte de resident which is a permanent residency card which is valid for 10 years, renewable.
