French property with disabled access

According to a recent report funded by the European Commission for the public transport and travel industries, around 25% of the population may be experiencing mobility issues at any one time. That's a lot of people. If you or a family member falls into this group, you might think you have to shelve your dreams of a home of holiday home in France. However, think again! There are some wonderful properties in France that have been adapted to offer disabled access and to make life generally easier. What's more, you may also be able to continue receiving your disability allowance even after moving to France, thanks to the 2007 ruling from the European Court of Justice (Benefits in France for UK Ex-pats). So, no need to put the dream on hold after all. We've done the hard work for you, and found ten of the best properties from all over the country, that offer good access for disabled people.

Bungalows in France with disabled access

A bungalow is perfect for anyone who has mobility issues. There are no stairs to negotiate, and no need for expensive lifts. One level living is easy, whatever level of disability you have. Bungalows can range from cheap and cheerful holiday boltholes to luxury properties for full-time living. So, why not take a look at the bungalows we've lined up for you in France?

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.

French property with lifts fitted

Some people just don't like the idea of one level living, however convenient it may be. So, if you prefer a house to a bungalow, but you're disabled and find stairs a problem, don't worry, there is an answer. You can either have a lift fitted, or there are properties with lifts already in place. It's just a matter of finding them.

Luxury property in France with disabled access

If the budget is a more generous one, our ski chalet near Megeve is not to be missed. The property has a terrace, open-plan kitchen and dining area, bedroom and shower room on the ground floor.
