If you’ve decided to buy a property in France, we put several areas under the spotlight this month: the iconic Côte d’Azur, where we compare life in the coastal hotspots with quieter villages inland; four of Brittany’s Petites Cités de Caractère, known for their architectural heritage; and glorious Gironde, with its world-famous wine and spectacular scenery. We provide an essential checklist of 23 things to consider before you start your property search, explain all you need to know about buying and running a café or restaurant in France, and share some other straightforward ways of making a living across the Channel. Our experts also provide a guide to income tax in France and discuss the pros and cons of buying through a société civile immobilière (SCI).
