I'll be an expat in France, Le Mans. What is the minimum apartment area for a family (4 people) in Le Mans?
And is it necessary to have a separate bed room for the children (4 years and 1 year old)?

(Info required because the family reunification visa requires "adequately-sized accommodation", which is locally determined)

I'm not sure this page answers whether you need a separate bedroom for your children, but it does give information on the apartment size.

Open the Conditions section. It contains the income and housing requirements.

Based on this page it looks like La Mans falls into zone B2. B2 requires 24 square meters for 2 people plus 10 square meters per additional person up to 8 people. If your family size is four, your living space must be 44 square meters.
