A world of overseas property under one roof

French Village

Presenters

Thinking of buying a property in France, then visit the French Village

France is the second most popular country for British buyers of overseas property and the reasons are clear – proximity to the UK, characterful property and a lifestyle that appeals to the bon viveur.

The French Village at A Place in the Sun Live is a boutique event-within-an-event, a specialist group of exhibitors and seminar content dedicated to anyone thinking of buying property in France. Produced in association with the experts on French property, French-Property.com, and sponsored by currency specialist Global Reach Group, the French Village is the ideal place to speak and interact with people who have done what you are thinking of doing. Many of our speakers are ex-pat French residents who certainly know their onions so come along and pick their brains.

Our French Village combines a mélange of estate agents and professional services – such as a lawyer, tax advisor - with thousands of French properties for sale from across the country, alongside a detailed seminar programme throughout the day.
