Why France is a good place to buy a property?

France has it all: rolling hills, rivers galore, stunning ancient villages, cities of culture, wonderful coastlines. Average house prices are also much lower than in the UK, so you can purchase a holiday home or upgrade to more exotic location - and still have money left over.

There is something for everybody on offer, from medieval castles to village cottages, from sandy beach pads to lock-up-and-go apartments in walled communities. Then of course there is what the French consider to be the best food in the world – and many of us would have to agree!

Buying a property in France is not a decision to be rushed or taken lightly. While France is a familiar country to many of us, there are still a lot of things to be aware of and consider when purchasing a property there. The free France Buying Guide provides information that will help you make a more informed decision on your purchase and put your mind at ease.
