The Best Bungalows for Sale in France in 2019

A selection of the best bungalows or single storey houses on the market in France in 2019

Bungalows in France - what exactly is a bungalow?

The term bungalow means something different in different parts of the world. In the US, a bungalow typically has one and a half storeys, while in India it changed from meaning a worker's hovel to denoting a very grand British Days of the Raj residence! The French sometimes use the term bungalow in a slightly derogatory way to describe any cheap, small property, but the British definition of the word (as applied in this article!) is simply a single story residence. The term bears has no relation to size or grandeur, as you can see if you look at our selection of bungalows listed below. A bungalow may also have the advantage of an extra level in the form of a basement or mezzanine without changing its name.

Bungalows in France make great holiday homes

A lot of British buyers imagine that a French property has to be a crumbling old farmhouse with several storeys and blue shutters, but give a moment's thought to the advantages of single story living. Bungalows make great holiday homes. Easy to maintain, they are also easy to lock up and leave when your holiday or weekend break is over. (How To Buy the Perfect Second Home in France.)

Flood your property with light and bring the outside in

A bungalow can also make excellent use of the exceptional quality of light found in France. Roof lights can be fitted to flood the entire living space with light. You can also fit French doors throughout the property, effectively creating an indoor outside space for living!

Greater privacy can be achieved with bungalows

A bungalow can also offer greater privacy than a two storey home. A private garden for a bungalow can be created by small trees or even shrubs, while a higher property would need very tall trees to achieve the same degree of protection from prying eyes.

Bungalows in France make great retirement homes

A bungalow is also a perfect retirement home. So, if your dream is to retire to France (Retirement and retiring to France), you can't do better than choose a one storey home. If mobility becomes more of a problem as you get older, a bungalow means you have no stairs to worry about and even wheelchair access is easy to create. Bungalow living is simple living, and what's not to like about that?

Bungalows for sale in France with big gardens

In overcrowded Britain, many bungalows seem to suffer from a lack of outside space. The only way to get the amount of living space you need is to build up unless you want to lose valuable garden space. However, in most parts of rural France, space is not an issue. Many French properties are surrounded by a lot of garden or even land. So, you can have all the outside space you want and still enjoy the simplicity of single storey living.

Bungalows for sale in France with basements

Perhaps you worry that a bungalow may not provide enough space for the life you want to live in France? Think again. Many French properties benefit from a sous sol (Le Sous Sol - A French Home's Hidden Advantage), or basement level, and bungalows are no exception. Here you can have a garage for your car, a laundry room or a place to keep your sports equipment such as golf clubs or skis. Maybe you can even fit in a games room.

French bungalows with swimming pools

And do you like the idea of having a swimming pool right outside your bedroom? So you can just open the French doors and step out for a swim. It's easy if you live in a bungalow in France. Even in villages and towns, bungalows often have enough outside space for a swimming pool, so there is no need to miss out on one of the great pleasures of a French lifestyle (Installing a swimming pool in France).
