What to buy in France?
France is full of different types of property that mirror the diversity of its regions. Traditionally, British property buyers who are relocating to France love buying homes that require a little ‘TLC’. There are still plenty of these renovation opportunities available across the country. However, if you’re looking for a turnkey property, you can still find a good number of ready-to-move-in villas. We can help you look at the different types of property in France, assess their pros and cons and help you make sure you find the right type of property for you.
Which region should you buy in?
France is a huge country with a surprising regional diversity, from the flat, green northeast to the hilly northwest, mountainous ‘midi’ and balmy southern coast. How do you decide where to buy in France when choosing your dream property?
France is a big country, offering diverse attractions and surroundings. The population of France is only slightly greater than that of the UK, at 67 million, compared to the UK’s at 64 million, but the country area is more than twice the size. This is often cited as one of the most appealing features for the many Britons who consider moving here.
How do you decide where to buy in France?
You may well be thinking of your move to France knowing exactly where you would like to live at the outset. Maybe it’s somewhere you already visit regularly, perhaps, or somewhere you already have friends or family. However, France has many different climates, distinctive geographical attributes and varied property costs due to its vast land mass.
To help you decide on the right place and lifestyle to suit you, France Property Guide has created an overall tour of the different regions, the property prices in each region, their distinctive climates, and the individual characteristics of each area. Our expert Property Resources Team are always on hand to help and you can access a range of the latest and greatest information and news about the regions of France.
