In the August issue of French Property News, we examine the key issues and questions concerning Brexit, explore central France, offer top tips for learning French and suggest the best places for running gîtes
If you have concerns about the result of the EU referendum with regard to holidaying, living or buying property in France, our August issue aims to respond to the key issues in a Brexit Q&A special. We also put several areas of France under the spotlight this month: its central heartland, with rolling countryside and affordable properties; the towns of Aix-en-Provence and Aix-les-Bains; and the spectacular Alpes Chablais between Lac Léman and Mont Blanc, with its year-round appeal. We also compare tourist hotspots with hidden locations for running gîtes, offer some top language-learning tips, and meet the design eye behind a rustic 1930s beach house in Gironde. Our experts explain the French mortgage application process and its benefits, plus what happens to your UK pension as a retiree in France.
