Location, Location, Location ...

Location is the most important factor for anyone to consider when buying a property. Your own perfect location in France will depend on your reason for buying and your priorities.

WHERE? France offers plenty of diversity, from the mountain landscapes of the Alps and Pyrenees to the yacht lined coasts of the Riviera on the Cote d'Azur, the urban chic of cities of Toulouse, Bordeaux, Nice and Angouleme to the escapism of its peaceful rural landscapes. Do as much research as you can about what each area has to offer before narrowing down your options.

WHY? Second home hunters usually buy within reasonable reach of ferry ports or airports for ease of access. Those relocating for a new life in France will need to consider how close their new home is to shops, schools, work and services. If you intend to use the property for rental income you should look to buy in one of the more popular areas.

BETTER WEATHER - The sun shines in the South of France almost continually between March and October and the country generally enjoys a milder climate than the UK.

IMPROVED LIFESTYLE - One of France’s biggest attractions is its gentle pace of life. Many buyers actively seek out remote rural properties whereas those hoping to find work or with school age children may need a property within easy reach of towns and good transport links.

 

Top Tip

Be clear about your budget – deciding how much you can afford to spend is as important as knowing where you want to buy or the type of property you are looking for.
