France Destination Guide

We have written our France Destination Guide in order to provide up-to-date information on the various areas and regions we believe are worth learning about and investing in.

We are here to help and provide you with help and support every step of the way. You may be looking for a ski apartment or chalet to escape to on weekends in the French Alps, an apartment in Paris for the shopping, culture and pâtisserie, a villa in the French Riviera or French Countryside to sip vin rosé and eat camembert or you are purely interested in growing your property investment portfolio.

As experts in our field, having helped people to buy property overseas since 2001, we’ve built up a very strong network of partners who can help with all aspects of buying or selling property for a holiday home, for investment, or to emigrate overseas. All of our clients have access to our network of partners, at no additional charge.

The French property market is one of the most stable in the world

Property buyers have an enormous amount of protection through careful regulation of both the real estate market and the banks. An excellent example of this protection is when buying off-plan.

All developers are required to pre-sell 50% of the value of the development. They can then secure a bank guarantee. This ensures that if a development is not completed, all funds will be reimbursed to the buyer.

Another advantage is mortgage finance. This allows buyers to fix the interest rate for the full term of the mortgage (max 25 years). There is no need in France to remortgage every 5 years like in the UK. Please contact us for more information on this.
