Owning A Property In Midi-Pyrenees France

Posted by admin on November 12, 2017

Haute-Garonne in the Midi-Pyrenees

The Midi-Pyrenees region was amalgamated with Languedoc-Rousillon in January 2016 and forms the largest region of France. It’s centre is Toulouse which boasts a young population of aspiring professionals and workers in contrast to the ageing population in the rest of the region. Whilst having Toulouse as a centre is extremely useful for travel with its international airport and TGV station, it is the ageing population of the rest of the region which makes this department interesting to those buying property in France. Despite being in the heart of the popular south west of France property prices remain on a par with many of the cheapest regions of France to the north. With the main form of employment being in farming or ancillary food production there is a declining demand for property amongst the French population. You can enjoy a wonderful climate, enchanting landscapes and architectural delights and still buy a bargain property. A combination that is hard to beat! That’s why property in Midi-Pyrenees is becoming so popular in France.

To my mind, Haute Garonne is the most exciting of the eight departments of the original Midi-Pyrenees which is why we have chosen to focus most of our properties in this department. Haute-Garonne is situated in the centre of the whole region and stretches right down to the Spanish border providing all the variety that the whole department has to offer. Undulating hills in the north stretch south to the high mountain peaks of the Pyrenees on the Spanish border and at the heart of the region is the world famous UNESCO Canal du Midi.

Best Of Summer &  Winter Skiing

The Healey Fox partner office, in the medieval village of Aurignac, is situated pretty much in the centre of Haute-Garonne, being only one hour’s drive from Toulouse to the north and one hour’s drive to the Spanish border. This location really allows you to enjoy the undulating hills of the immediate vicinity whilst having the mountains of the Pyrenees close enough for a day trip. There are even four ski resorts in the Haute Garonne so not only can you luxuriate in long, warm, sunny days in the summer, you can also access winter skiing!

Bastide Villages France

Staying closer to home you will be spoilt by an abundance of medieval, bastide villages with cobbled streets, window boxes overflowing with scarlet geraniums and little cafes under the trees in the market squares. You are unlikely to ever tire of the summer festivals whether they be to celebrate the wine of the region, the food of the region or just be a reason to enjoy fun and laughter with friends and neighbours. If you fancy being a little more active there is a good selection of bike trails, hiking trails and canoeing on offer and you can even roller skate down the whole 52km of track running alongside the Canal du Midi which starts at Toulouse and and runs down to the Étang de Thau near the Mediterranean.

Properties in France

When it comes to choosing a property you will be spoilt for choice. There is a good selection of attractive French villages houses for sale at around €80,000-100,000, charming detached country cottages for €200,000 and grand houses with swimming pools, parkland and almost anything else you could want from €400,000.
