In the October issue of French Property News we take a tour of Rochefort-en-Terre, voted France’s favourite village; explain how to combine period charm with mod cons in your holiday let; and revisit the B&B in St-Antonin-Noble-Val for seasonal hosting tips

If you’re still searching for your dream French property, we put several areas under the spotlight this month: Rochefort-en-Terre, Montreuil-sur-Mer and Rocamadour, voted France’s top three favourite villages; Grasse and Menton, sensory towns for smart buying at opposite ends of the Côte d’Azur; and the vibrant and trendy city of Toulouse. We reveal where foreign buyers are choosing to invest in France, look at how to combine period charm with mod cons to maximise the appeal of your holiday let, share tips for overhauling a heating system in time for winter, and catch up with the B&B owners in Tarn-et-Garonne after their first year’s trading. Our experts explain the legal implications of France’s first online register of trusts, social contributions and how much you’ll have to pay and, in terms of currency, why now could be the right time to buy.
