You won’t be disappointed by your new living environment!
The Grenoble region combines a magnificent natural setting with a dynamic employment area. The city of Grenoble is surrounded by 3 mountain ranges: the Belledonne massif, the Grande Chartreuse massif and the Vercors massif, allowing for breathtaking views from the city.
The Grenoble agglomeration has 450,000 inhabitants. The city has developed since the 1968 Grenoble Olympic Games and has specialised in micro-electronics, which is why it is known as France’s “Silicone Valley”.
It is an important employment area with a large number of highly successful companies: Schneider, STMicroelectronics, CEA, Cap Gemini, Air Liquide, and many others, which also attract many foreigners and engineers.
Grenoble offers a great life with theatres, concert halls and museums around the historic centre. Public transport is well developed.
