We have owned a house in Normandy since 1980 and find the French very friendly and helpful. There is no graffiti, no noisy neighbours, no drunken hooligans, no cars with music one can hear 200 yards away.
I would advise critics of the French to go further than the Calais hypermarket and the Champs Elysees in Paris.
