EU citizens (or other non-visa citizens) who stay longer than three months are officially supposed to apply for a carte de séjour (residence permit), for which you'll have to show proof of among other things a regular income or sufficient funds to support yourself during your stay. EU passports are rarely stamped, however, so there is no evidence of how long you've been in the country. If your passport does get stamped, you can cross the border to Belgium or Germany, for example and re-enter for another ninety days legitimately.
