If you’re after cheap thrills, forget page three. Now it’s all about page five or page 11. The beauties are there, baring their all for you coquettishly. I am, of course, referring to the stunning homes featured in the new issue of French Property News, out today.
I found my perfect home within seconds of opening the magazine.
Mine is on page 11. It’s a six-bedroom house in the Dordogne, with a swimming pool and its own lake. Priced at €299,600, it seems a steal. I can see it needs some cosmetic work – oh, and it looks as though the pool needs replacing, I would say.
Importantly, the estate agents have tantalised me with the promise of “possible chambres d’hôtes”.
It’s situated in Firbeix, up at the top of the region, very near the border with the département of Haute-Vienne, in the Limousin. It’s an hour and a half further north than where most of my friends are – but it’s near the N21 road, which leads directly to Bergerac…
If I were seriously in the market right now for a property to live in and run a business from, this would be well worth a view.
Sadly, I’ll have to content myself for the moment with page 11.
