    I don't think that applies for recreational use, however the French privacy laws are stricter so it would be unwise to fly over an area where people would reasonably expect privacy.
    As a tourist in a touristy area common sense should apply, for example there was recently some good video uploaded from Mont Saint-Michel.
    As an ├ętranger it won't always be easy to judge where is OK - and it would be harder to brush aside objections with a Gallic Shrug.

    We are into hunting season now too, so even in a quiet rural area beware of implications if disturbing La Chase.

    Thanks for the replies. I think I'm going to be OK. I want to film my mate's house with no immediate neighbours and in a pretty remote village. Can't see too many people calling the Gendarmes.
