We are with HSBC and find them excellent. Our branch is right in the middle of Nice so will be very convenient for you.

We tried Barclays first, but did not find them so responsive. With HSBC you can have internet banking in France and the UK, and move funds yourself between the two. If you email me I can give you a contact name and email address for someone to talk to in English.

I was faced with the same dilemma a couple of years ago.

The www.barclays.fr internet site was useful to me, especially as it in English as well as French.

Opening a bank account with them (for me at the Frejus branch) turned out to be quite simple.

Bank charges are quite high, especially if you're used to free banking in the UK. But that's the norm in France I think.

Good luck.
