Apartments in Saint Étienne

Saint Étienne, in the eastern central part of France, was traditionally an industrial city with a focus on industries likes arms manufacture and coal mining. The city suffered after the decline of these industries and was in economic decline for some time. But, today it is well recovered from this dip in its history, placing a focus on the design and technological industries.

With this refocus, many new jobs have been created in Saint Étienne, especially in the two industries mentioned above. This has drawn many expats to the city to enjoy the city’s newfound prosperity and experience its culture. In 2010, it was labelled as a City of Design to reflect this economic and industrial shift.

One benefit to expats and students relocating to Saint Étienne is that it is not a very touristic city. This means you can experience the authentic culture and lifestyle of Saint Étienne locals without having to fight through crowds of tourists. Still, there are plenty of attractive sights for you to see and explore when experiencing this city for the first time.
