FREE ENTRY – 15 reasons why a home in France is the perfect choice for Midlanders
Did you know that Birmingham airport offers flights to 15 destinations in France? So a home in your favourite corner of France could be closer than you think.
Fly into Bergerac and you have the ever-popular Dordogne to explore, or perhaps Nice and the glamorous French Riviera tickles your fancy? Bordeaux is the gateway to vineyards renowned the world over, not to mention the fabulous Atlantic coast, while Toulouse is at the heart of some of France’s most beautiful countryside and Avignon is one of Provence’s finest towns. Biarritz combines elegant architecture with a surfer’s paradise, Brest opens up the wild coastline of Brittany, Lyon is France’s capital of gastronomy, and for keen skiers, Grenoble and Chambery are your ticket to the Alps. And of course, all these cities are wonderful in their own right – the perfect place for a pied-�-terre. Did we mention that Paris, too, is just a few hours away?
For househunters, the good news is that property prices in France have stabilised at a level where genuinely great value homes are there for the taking. Vendors are still open to negotiation, but prices across the country are starting to rise again – so don’t leave it too long!
If you’re not quite ready to hop on a plane, and would like to start your research into buying a French property a little closer to home, the best place to get all the advice and guidance you need is at the French Property Exhibition at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham on 24 March 2012.
