There are many other angles to consider too,  such as where you are domiciled (and that is not necessarily where you live) and where you property is located.

In general, that's correct.

quick search on AngloINFO reveals the following INFOrmationPage:

Wills & Inheritance Lawquote:We have a will (homemade on a kit from the stationers!) in England, with copies with various family members - is that enough for French law?
