Jill , from Germany

Deciding to use int.mobility for my move to Grenoble was the best decision I could have taken! Catherine was well organised, easy to contact and helped immensely to facilitate the process of finding a great apartment. Avoiding the stress of having to contact agencies and flat owners directly but being able to concentrate on really looking at the object during the visits made it much easier to finding a perfect fit. In the end, I found a beautiful apartment in my budget in the area I wanted to be – thanks to Catherine and int.mobility! I would recommend int.mobility to anyone moving to Grenoble, whether you have been here before or not.

Omar, from Egypt

I came to Grenoble to start my PhD in a difficult situation with the pandemic going on, thus, making the process of finding a house even harder than it is normally. After lots of searching, visits and scams that all went in vain, I came across int. mobility. With int. mobility, the process became much easier and smoother. I have provided them with my requirements and budget (I tend to be a bit picky when it comes to where I live :D) and I can see that they really worked hard to match them and bring me the house I wanted in an area near the laboratory where I am doing my PhD. Catherine was my person of contact. She has been nice and helpful. She also spoke good English which is important for international students and not easy to come across in agencies.


Maria Catarina from Lisbon, Portugal

I saw a tagline for Int.mobility that I liked: “Le plus souple des atterrissages à Grenoble”. That’s exactly how it felt to me.

Cutting the long story short, when I landed in Grenoble, I already had a very nice and luminous apartment in the pleasant and central quartier of Île Verte, with all services on – water, electricity, heating, and internet. This still sounds quite amazing and certainly would not have been possible without Int.mobility and Catherine Fiol.

Catherine Fiol is an extremely efficient and dedicated professional, a thoughtful and generous person. But I think the real secret is that Catherine does not stop her efforts and rest simply because her clients seem to be happy with a solution – not until she is convinced that the best possible solutions has been presented to them.
In fact, I would have kept the apartment that I picked from the initial list, a correct choice in a convenient location. But Catherine found one that better matched my criteria and did not hesitate to contact me and the agency during her holidays to give me the opportunity to consider this new possibility, which I finally took!

Find out more about Catherine FIOL

I am Catherine FIOL, I am French and have lived 10 years in the United States and Germany. After 30 years as a Quality Engineer in international teams, I founded int.mobility.

My career and personal life have been marked by experiences abroad. At the age of 20, a year of study at a prestigious University of Pennsylvania profoundly changed my perception of the world. Then at the age of 30, in Munich and with my family, I benefited from support by professionals of international mobility, which allowed me to devote myself to my profession as an engineer. Finally, at the age of 40, I created a method of learning French for private pre-schools in the state of Illinois. All these transitions have been facilitated by referents in each of these countries.

It is my turn to be the reference in the assistance to the installation of young professionals and integration of international expatriates and students who choose this type of service. My vision is that of a world where the people who benefit from an “easy” and professional welcome are more involved in their professional projects. This is a real factor of success.

The int.mobility website is multicultural. The Chinese pages were designed by my partner for the communication of services for Chinese academics and employees in Europe.
