Property in France
The most popular areas in France for British property buyers have tended to be to the north and west of the country, from Brittany
down through the Loire Valley, to the Dordogne
region. More recently the south of the country has opened up to British buyers thanks to a plethora of budget air routes, with areas around Bordeaux, Toulouse, the Pyrenees and Languedoc-Roussillon
attracting many second home owners and retirees. Paris, the Cote d'Azur
and the Alps
are perennial favourites offering reliable tourist rental income. Newer areas for buyers wanting rural renovation properties include inland regions such as Limousin and Auvergne.
