For buying and selling property in Lorraine

The green lung

Lorraine, located in the north-east of France, has acquired the nickname 'the green lung' and it certainly won't disappoint nature lovers. Its many hills, rivers, valleys and medieval towns make Lorraine a charming and altogether relaxing place to spend time. The region is largely unspoilt despite the strong presence of industry. Glass and crystal making is still a part of everyday life for the people of Lorraine.

A cultural gem

Over the years, Lorraine has been fiercely fought over between France and Germany. The different dialects are testimony to the highly Germanic influence that still remains in this region. Lorraine is very proud of its culture and history and this is reflected in its many museums and well preserved buildings of interest. A cartographer from Lorraine that takes credit for giving America it's name back in 1507. He named it after Amerigo Vespucci (despite the fact that he actually discovered Brazil!)

A culinary hotspot

Lorraine has developed a reputation throughout France for its regional cuisine. Quiche, still the most popular dish in France, and Moselle wines both originate from the region.

But not just quiche

The area is a hotspot for people who enjoy their food. A wide variety of fish, all fresh from the local lakes, is popular on regional menus. The beer is not to be missed either - and probably won't be since it is the essential ingredient in a whole variety of dishes.

Lorraine property prices and travel to the Lorraine

Lorraine is not a popular area amongst foreign buyers. Consequently, property remains relatively inexpensive. The region also benefits from a low cost of living. Good motorway links make travel by car straightforward. The TGV services to eastern France should also be considered. If you prefer to fly, there are currently no airports within the region offering direct flights to/from the UK. The Paris airports could be used, or there is Basel/Mulhouse airport, which currently has easyJet flights operating to/from the UK.

Department Guides to Lorraine

MEURTHE-ET-MOSELLE PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

Meurthe-et-Moselle, named after the two main rivers that flow through the department, is an ideal relocation destination. It is friendly and boasts a lively capital, Nancy, situated in the middle of beautiful countryside.

MEUSE PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

For many, a visit to the Meuse is a poignant and sobering reminder of the loss suffered during the First World War. The main historical sites of interest are found in and around Verdun, a town that was - and indeed still is - seen to embody the very essence of the French resistance.

MOSELLE PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

The gentle Moselle department is a popular location for Luxembourgers looking for bargains over the border. The capital is Metz, a highly cosmopolitan and commercial city set among ancient streets and archaic buildings.

VOSGES PROPERTY GUIDE MAP

The Vosges department is great for hikers and lovers of nature due to its dynamic landscape and deep forests. It is lucky enough to have two regional parks located on its territory. Property is reasonably priced but the area has yet to become a favourite amongst international and second home buyers.
