There are some wonderful properties in France that have been adapted to offer disabled access and to make life generally easier.

Property in France with disabled access with business potential

Moving to France, whether you are disabled or not, sometimes means that you need a little extra income to replace the income from the job you had in the UK. Or, maybe you just want to finance the purchase of your holiday home. Either way, you can find that extra income with a property that has a gite, or which is even an hotel or chambres d'hôtes ( Buying a Business in France). A lot of these types of properties have already been snapped up so they aren't always easy to find, but we've got some beauties here to try for size.

You can either have a lift fitted, or there are properties with lifts already in place. It's just a matter of finding them.
