I think the list of companies hiring ballet-trained dancers would include:
-Paris Opera Ballet (but it's almost impossible to get there if you don't come from the POB school)
-Ballet National de Bordeaux
-Ballet du Capitole de Toulouse
-Ballets de Monte-Carlo (in Monaco)
-Ballet National de Marseille
-Ballet du Rhin (but their repertory includes more and more modern dance)
-Centre Chorégraphique National de Nancy et de Lorraine (same remark as the Ballet du Rhin)
-Ballet de l'Opéra de Nice
And that's about all.

I live in France, but unfortunately I'm not very knowledgeable about dance schools...
Nantes is a bigger city that Aix-en-Provence so perhaps the choice will be larger, but I'm not sure.
I've found thos URL about ttwo dance schools in Aix, but know nothing about it:
There also is a Conservatoire de Musique et de Danse in Aix:
and one in Nantes:
I've never been to Nantes and have only visited Aix briefly, but both cities are said to be pleasant to live in, both with a large population of students and an active cultural life. The climates differ quite a lot (more mediterranean in Aix, sunnier and quite hot in summer), but I think both places would be a good choice. May I ask in which school/ university you'd plan to study ?

From Aix en Provence you can easily go to Marseille where there are some very good schools, for example the Studio Collette Armand. They producted some vety good dancers.
Here is their website
As Estelle said, Aix is a very nice city as well Nantes, but if you don't like a rainy weather, you have to go to Aix. Paris is also a very nice city. One of my american came once a semester, then for one year, and finally she visits Paris each year now.
Please feel free to P/ ot e-mail me if you want more informations
