This month we’re exploring some of France’s most dynamic cities this month, including Marseille, Paris, Lyon and Bordeaux, and for those who would prefer a more rural location for their French home we explore the glorious countryside of Gers. If you’re keen on a property with character, there’s a round-up of quirky homes for sale to suit all tastes and budgets, while part eight of our buying guide series examines the reasons for having a structural survey. We consider the benefits of retirement in France, but if you still need an income we look at how to get the interiors right for gîtes and explain the tax implications of running a holiday let. Our expert also takes a closer look at the controversy surrounding French social charges.
