Two’s company – and fortunately you can purchase these beautiful French houses in pairs!
1. €166,900, Morbihan
There’s so much potential for this pretty pair of cottages in Morbihan, which are connected by a lovely courtyard. The first house has a beautiful open-plan ground floor full of character features, whilst upstairs there are four great bedrooms. The second property also has four bedrooms (all with external access which would be very handy for a B&B) and a large living area which requires some renovation. They come with a useful outbuilding, and are situated in the attractive and active commune of Guémené-sur-Scorff. All in all, this listing would make a great pair of homes, gîte business or B&B, for a great price.

2. €148,000, Manche
Ever thought about embarking on a joint property venture with a friend, or buying with family members to creat a multi-generational home? If so, these two cottages 2km from a sweet market town in Manche could be perfect. Both in great condition, they offer five bedrooms in total and are ready to move into. You can maintain independence from your neighbour thanks to the separate driveways, garages, heating systems and water supplies. When it comes to outside space, however, there are great opportunities for living as one group. The garden includes a large vegetable patch for growing your shared produce, which you can cook and eat together out on the large terrace, which offers stunning countryside views.

3. €490,000, Gard
These two beautiful 15th-century stone houses have been joined to create a successful business in a stunning location. In the picturesque and tourist-friendly medieval village of St-Jean-de-Valériscle, set in riverside gardens, this property offers accommodation for 13 people spread between five dwellings. The first house contains a fantastic reception and entertaining area, as well as three gîtes that have been beautifully maintained. The second house has been split into two apartments, one of which is currently used as the owners’ accommodation. With benefits such as a pretty private balcony for every apartment, an enclosed garden with a pool overlooking the river, and the fact that the whole place comes fully furnished, this is an unmissable opportunity for anyone looking to take over a business in the Cévennes.

4. €315,000, Dordogne
With a bit of time and TLC this could be really special. This listing comprises two charming stone houses in a peaceful Dordogne hamlet, four minutes with a village with everyday amenities and a public pool. The first house offers large reception rooms and two bedrooms, with the option to create a third, while the second house has great potential to develop into a second residence or gîte. A barn offers storage space or further scope for development. Once finished, the prime location of this listing means that it would be highly attractive to paying guests – Périgueux and Bergerac with its airport are both half an hour away.

5. €299,999, Charente
There’s so much you could do with this expansive listing near the popular town of Ruffec in Charente – a smallholding, large family home, holiday cottage business or equestrian venture are just a few options. Situated around a large central courtyard are two stone houses, a barn and outbuildings including stables. The first of the two houses has recently been renovated to offer a light and airy kitchen-diner, characterful yet fresh living room, and three great bedrooms. It also benefits from an efficient thermodynamic water heating system installed in 2020. The second, larger property has also been recently renovated, and has a lovely country kitchen/diner, living room, laundry room, four bedrooms and a mezzanine. Add the outbuildings and four hectares of land, and you’ve got a small kingdom for the price of a terraced house in the UK.

6. €329,000, Dordogne
This chocolate box périgourdine house in a peaceful Dordogne village is the French country haven many dream of – and to make it even better, there’s two of them! Set across a small courtyard, these would make the perfect homes for two families or would work brilliantly as a gîte business. Inside, the first house is in beautiful condition and has everything you could want in a French property: light, space and character features. It has three bedrooms and access to a terrace. The second house, meanwhile, is cosy and charming with two bedrooms and one bathroom. The garden is neat and compact, but just beyond the gate there are picturesque hiking trails winding into the countryside. The market town of Montignac is 7km away, and it’s 25km to Sarlat.
