A preview of what you’ll find inside our latest issue
This month we’re househunting among the vineyards, exploring the rural delights of Gers and the prestigious winemaking areas of Burgundy and Champagne, where we raise a toast to their recent UNESCO recognition. We also enjoy the bright lights of Paris and take a two-wheeled tour along France’s newest long-distance cycle route from Charente-Maritime to Calvados. Our expert considers the pros and cons of a town or village setting for gîtes, and we show how property in France can still be accessible for wheelchair users. Make sure you’re fully prepared for any French property purchase with our guide to currency exchange and banking in France, and find out what you need to know about financing a renovation project with a French mortgage.
