3 bargain Properties in France that may tempt you!

Written by on February 8, 2018 in Property for sale, Property in France

I’m one of those people that loves to search online for property. I am looking for the bargain of the century! I have a little bit of money but not a lot. It’s not earning me any interest in the bank that’s for sure. So, if the right property comes up, I might just be tempted to buy a bolt hole somewhere in France.

Often when I’m searching I discover properties for sale that I’d love, they are total bargains, but they’re not quite for me. But, they might suit someone else so here are my top three this month chosen for location and price – they’re all under Euros 30,000, you can hardly buy a decent second-hand car for that in France…

Perfect in Poitou-Charentes?

A 2-bedroom house (top photo) which needs a fair bit of updating but it’s habitable. It comes with an attic ripe for conversion. It also has a garage with a small apartment. For those who want low maintenance this might be just the thing – no garden! At the centre of a small village that has a shop/boulangerie, located between ever popular Confolens and Chabanais. At Euros 29,000 – I’d say this is going to make someone a very happy homeowner in France.

Blissful in Brittany?

A cute Breton house on the outskirts of Plemet, Cotes-d’Armor close to popular Moncontour and Josselin. It needs updating and the project has already begun, perfect for keen DIYers who want to make their mark without too much work. Although it currently only has one bedroom, there’s scope for more as the attic can be converted adding 2-3 bedrooms.  A hangar style building in the garden has possibilities and there’s a large field which would make a lovely garden. This one is tempting me… I keep looking at it and thinking how much I would get for just Euros 24,000… More details here: www.frenchestateagents.com/french-property-for-sale/view/78920NG22/house-for-sale-in-plemet-cotes-d-armor-brittany-france

Irresistible in Indre?

This bijou, 1 bed house comes with permission to convert a large barn and loft space into residential space. In the loft, velux and dormer windows have been added already so its ripe for completion. It has a small courtyard and a separate plot of land that would make a great vegetable garden. For those wanting a tranquil village, this is spot on but it’s close to a town with all the amenities you need. What does it for me is that it’s on the doorstep of the Loire Valley chateaux, close to Poitiers with its TGV station and airport and at under Euros 26,000 it has bags of potential.
