Yes, it may sound crazy, but we (a family of 4) are planning to do that. Our children will start school on Sept 1 (hopefully) in the Toulouse area. Our visas are being processed (student visas for the kids, visitor visas for my wife and I).
I have several questions. First of all, we are looking at flights right now. There seem to be very, very few, and to be very expensive. Any thoughts on whether new flights are likely to be added?
Second, one of our flight options goes through Barcelona. On long stay visas, do we have to first land IN France, or can we land in another Schengen country (like Spain)?
Any thoughts on how likely it is that we have to quarantine upon arrival in France? Does anybody know how quarantines (mandatory or voluntary) are being handled? We are willing to do this if necessary, but I'd sure like to know a little about what we are getting into ahead of time. Oh, and, we will have a small dog with us.
