We have now updated our interactive guide to buying property in France to include four brand new regions – Dordogne, Poitou-Charentes, Normandy and Provence.
These are some of the most popular areas for British buyers in Western Europe – not just France – and it's easy to see why, with their stunning natural beauty, quaint Gallic towns and relatively affordable property prices.
In each of these areas we explore the options for every type of house hunter. From those looking for a traditionally French cultural experience with cobbled streets lined with boutique shops and cafes, to the slightly less Francophile who want to be within a short distance of other expats.
We even have something for those wishing to spend most of their time in France outside, with locations perfect for active people who enjoy long walks, water sports and all manner of outdoor activities. Not to mention something a little less strenuous for the beach lovers, who want nothing more than a clean, safe beach to enjoy the warm French sun.
