A selection of ten of the best farmhouses on the market in France in 2018

2018 - a great time to buy a French farmhouse

The past few years have been difficult for many of us, both in the UK and in France. However, the silver lining to the economic cloud is that French property is more affordable than ever. So, if you've spent years dreaming of a pretty farmhouse in rural France but believed you couldn't afford one, this could be your opportunity. What's more, a French farmhouse offers myriad opportunities to run a small business to bring in extra money. So, stop dreaming, browse our great selection of fabulous farmhouses and resolve to make your dream a reality.

Empty farmhouses - an opportunity for ex-pats

France is a vast country, much of it rural. In many areas, farming used to be the only way of life. Farms passed from fathers to sons, and often several generations lived in the farmhouses together. However, in recent times, French people have moved to the towns and cities leaving their farmhouses and barns to crumble. This has meant rich pickings for country loving Brits, who see the potential of these lovely but neglected old buildings. We're a nation that's not afraid of a little renovation work, and many of us have turned ruined French farmhouses and barns into stunning homes. Many more of us will have the opportunity to do this in the coming year. (House Renovations in France.)

A French farmhouse for farmers

A French farmhouse has much greater potential than simply being part of a working farm. Of course, some British farmers can find wonderful opportunities to purchase a working farm in France and begin a whole new agricultural life (Farming in France and French Farm Property). Farms tend to be cheaper in France than in the UK and the French government offer excellent incentives to help farmers establish their businesses.

Farmhouses can be used for other businesses too

But you don't have to be a farmer to enjoy the benefits of owning a French farmhouse. Providing extensive accommodation for large families, these properties are perfect as bed and breakfasts or hotels, and many can be turned into businesses such as equestrian centres. Even smaller farmhouses frequently come with dependences such as barns and outbuildings. These can be turned into guest accommodation to help supplement your new life. Farmhouses and their land (often plenty of it in rural France) can also be pressed into service as campsites, or even golf complexes. Farmhouses that come complete with lakes make great fishing businesses. And, they make fabulous holiday homes, gites or places to bring up a family.
