Why Buy In France?
France has become increasingly popular with expat Brits escaping to a new life overseas for a sunnier, more relaxed lifestyle, possibly encouraged by the Escape to the Chateau TV series.
The appeal of France being right on the doorstep of the UK, not being too far from the grandchildren, has attracted many retirees to France. There are plenty of expat communities in France. Brits account for over 150,000 of the expats living in France, so finding like-minded people should not be a problem depending on the area you choose.
Generally sunnier than the UK, France has a range of climates, ranging from colder winters but warmer summers in central France to the year-round sun of the south of France. France’s excellent infrastructure is reflected in its high-speed TGV network and healthcare system, often regarded as the best in the world (World Health Organisation rankings). France has a reputation for excellent quality cuisine. With a proud history of fantastic food and drink, you will be spoilt for choice from reasonably priced set price menus at small family-run restaurants to one of the many Michelin starred restaurants.
The French property market has for many years tempted international buyers for one key reason: you get a lot more for your money compared to other European countries. Fuelled by low mortgage rates, France continues to attract international investors with its stable price growth.
