Finding land on which to build your own French home

Building your own home in France (Building or extending property in France) is a very popular way to achieve the dream of owning a holiday property or beginning a new life in France (Life in France). Building your own house can be considerably cheaper than buying, and of course, carries the advantage of being able to control the design and the quality as well as the cost. Whether you decide to go it alone and do the work yourself, or to employ a project manager to oversee the build in your absence is up to you, but whichever of these options you choose, the whole thing begins with finding that perfect plot of land. (Land for Sale in France.)

The perfect plot of land

As always in the case of property, location is vital. However, one man's perfect location is another man's nightmare, and France, being such a large and diverse country, offers a vast choice of location. The building industry is alive and well in France, in spite of the economic downturn, and everywhere you look you will see houses being built. To find the perfect plot, you need to choose your area, whether it's beside the sea, in the mountains, in a village or a town. If you have children, you may decide that to live in a village with a school, activities and shops is the best choice, while couples may prefer a plot in the country, in a more isolated position.

Many choices to be made

Only you can decide, but the choices aren't over once you have made that first decision. The size and aspect of the plot, the cost, of course, flat or sloping, all of these things are important to get right. Don't forget too, that if you are looking for a plot on which to build your house, you must be sure that the land is being sold with permission to construct a residence!

Consider a lotissement

At the bottom end of the price scale, plots on a lotissement can offer great value for money, and also be used to create an easy to manage holiday property or a small family home. Lotissements are the French equivalent of a housing estate in the UK, and while perhaps not offering the glamour of a grand house in the country or an elegant townhouse, lotissement living can carry many advantages. In a new lotissement development, everyone is building so there are unlikely to be complaints about the noise or mess, and also, everyone is new to the place making it easier to make friends and not feel so much of an outsider. Lotissements tend to be close to amenities such as schools and shops, as they are created for families. The presence of neighbours also means that should you spend periods of time in the UK, your home is less likely to be broken into, and any problems such as water leaks will be reported swiftly.
