Contemporary property for sale in France

Although France is known for its many old, heritage properties, there are also a good number of contemporary homes on the market. Interest in contemporary and uniquely designed properties has increased partly due to the influence of popular property programmes, like Channel 4's "Grand Designs" (Most Popular TV Programmes about French Property). Several "Grand Designs" shows have centred on properties in France, highlighting the possibilities.

What does contemporary property offer?

Contemporary houses have clean, modern lines, up to date (often state of the art) fixtures and fittings and offer a low maintenance lifestyle. Many have large, floor to ceiling windows to make the most of the stunning views of the French seaside, countryside and mountains.

French contemporary property can be environmentally friendly

Contemporary properties are often far more environmentally friendly than older properties. They have been built since architects gained a better understanding of environmental issues, and the designs and build quality of these properties reflects this. Take, for example, our stunning property in Languedoc-Roussillon (Languedoc-Roussillon Property Guide).

French contemporary property can be cheap to run

As well as being environmentally friendly, contemporary homes often offer solar heating, so they are not just "green" but save money too (Green and eco friendly building in France). And however modern the design, contemporary property can blend harmoniously with the landscape. Up to date building methods combine with local materials to create the most exciting architecture and produce truly unique homes. Here, ten of the best contemporary properties currently on the market in France are listed.
