Properties for sale in France

France is a country rich in culture, nature and history. It’s loved by international buyers for its unique property market which offers everything from coastal villas and city townhouses to farmhouses with gites and chateaus with acres of land.

Property for sale in France is popular with British buyers looking to buy a second home or move entirely. It’s the most easily accessible country to reach from the UK, and offers a ‘greener’ option of ferries or train travel too, rather than just flying.

France has something for everyone, spread across 18 regions and over 100 departments. From the champagnes of the north-east to the rosés of the south and everything in between, you’ll find something to pop your cork over.


Properties for sale in France

Each region and department has something different to offer. Country departments of the beautiful Dordogne, Loire Valley or Alpes-Maritimes have some of the most beautiful village homes for sale in France.

Historical departments like Normandy, Brittany and Languedoc have a lot to offer those looking for a traditional, tranquil home in France. There are attractive seaside communities and fishing villages – a bit quieter in the winter perhaps but with a year-round community too – but drive a few miles inland and you’ll find village homes or farmhouses on the outskirts of villages of small towns.

If you’ve got a little more money to play with and like the idea of living the life of luxury in France, you’ll find thousands of homes for higher budgets on our portal. You have the option of something truly grand in most of France, or something a bit more modest on the French Riviera or Paris.


Where to buy property in France

French and English are both widely spoken in French. In big cities like Paris, Nice and Cannes, most people will speak both languages, but in smaller areas like country villages and inland towns off the beaten track, English isn’t as widespread.

The French lifestyle embraces fun above all else. Life in France is laidback and enjoyable. The French keep work and personal lives separate – in fact, it’s even illegal to work on the weekends in France – and foreigners love to benefit from this approach.

We have a wide selection of property for sale in France well suited to families and couples emigrating, second-home purchases and investment properties. Find your property in France today on Your Overseas Home.
