Château or Cottage? Buy French Property Now
2018 Could Be The Right Year To Buy French Property
Whatever your budget, whatever type of home you are dreaming of, 2018 could be the right year to buy French property. French property prices are finally rising, after falling or remaining flat for many years, and FNAIM (the professional association of French estate agents) are expecting to see rises of 5-10% during 2018. The pound is also bouncing back against the euro at the moment so not only may you save up to 10% if you buy French property in 2018 but if you exchange any cash for the purchase now your pounds will buy you more euros. You don’t have to wait until you have found the right house before you change your money into euros you can benefit from the favourable exchange rate by contacting our Currency exchange partner today.
A Château To Call Home In France
One of the joys of this Château is its setting, being located right in the heart of a medieval village in the Tarn et Garonne. Not only is the village at the end of your private drive, you also have an amazing feeling of isolation from the rear of the property as it’s extensive grounds of 3.3 hectares provide superb views over the open rolling countryside around.
From a pretty village lane the huge iron gates lead into the courtyard and covered parking in one of the two large stone barns. The original 1501 carved doorway in the tower leads into the property which has been lovingly and tastefully restored in 2000-2005 by the current owners and now offers 550m2 centrally heated accommodation with 6 en-suite bedrooms. In the grounds the south facing terraces with a pergola covered dining area offer views over the surrounding countryside. A small path leads from the terrace to the heated swimming pool which has lovely sunny areas all around.There are also two well renovated 1 bedroomed cottages in the grounds and 2 large stone barns in excellent order offering further possibilities to create extra accommodation if required.
The Tarn et Garonne in Midi-Pyrénées, south west France is a delightful part of the country with its magnificent gorges, the rivers of Tarn and Garonne and its tributaries and beautiful waterfalls. There are also innumerable beautiful medieval villages and small towns to explore.
A French Cottage To Fall In Love With
This delightful small cottage has beautiful mountain views and is just the place to enjoy peace and quiet in the countryside of the Haute Garonne in South West France. The property is situated 15 minutes from Mane in the Arbas Valley, in the heart of stunning countryside. The house has a living room with doors opening onto the large terrace with magnificent views of the surrounding mountains, kitchen, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom .The basement as well as the attic can be converted if necessary but you may prefer to keep this cottage small so that you don’t get too many guests to destroy your peaceful setting!
The gradually sloping grounds of 4460 m ² are planted with fir trees, apple trees and walnut trees and from every part of the house and grounds there are the splendid views of the Pyrénées mountains. The location of this delightful cottage is ideal for nature lovers with hiking, fishing, paragliding and caving all immediately accessible. Some people may think this is an ideal holiday home, and being located only 70km from Toulouse airport travel is easy, but I rather think that I would never want to leave this cottage once I arrived!
