The cost of living aboard in the South of France.
I can''t answer your question so specifically, but I can say that the prices for food were similar to the states except for any kind of meat, especially beef. We were in Canay, France and the surrounding area for a month last year while a friend was taking possession of his new sailboat.
We spent many trips to local stores to provision the boat for an Atlantic crossing so we spent lots of our US dollars there. Sorry I didn''t keep the prices, but I can tell you that the grocery stores are better stocked than ours and have great quality products to choose from. Also, the restaurant prices vary from the expensive to the cheap just like here.
One thing that was difficult to locate and expensive was a laundry. Actually every place we visited had expensive laundry facilities.
