Lifestyle buyers and holidaymakers alike are drawn to quality products in easy to reach locations and France couldn’t be more accessible, with over 400 airports, excellent road and rail links and numerous ferry ports. What’s more, financing your overseas property is proving much easier in France than in its other European destinations.
“France’s banks have continued to lend on second homes, thereby stimulating the market. The relative stability of this market and its ease of access from the UK mean that buyers remain confident to invest.” – Savills Research, Autumn 2011
