10 Biggest Bargains in Brittany - 2017

2017 is the year to bag a bargain in Brittany

Brittany's star is rising again - don't miss out on a property bargain

British property buyers and holidaymakers have always loved Brittany. It's not too far from the UK, so access is easy. Its beauty - coast, countryside and heritage - has never been in question. But Brittany has suffered the effects of the economic recession, more than most. The silver lining to the cloud? It's now one of the best places in France to buy a bargain priced property in 2017. You'll need to be quick, though, as Brittany's market is on the upward path once more, according to the National Association of French Estate Agents (FNAIM). (Property for sale in Brittany.)

Brittany was hit hard by the recession

France, like many other European countries, has seen its property market hit by falling prices and a loss of confidence amongst buyers in the last few years. And, previously high priced Brittany saw some of the biggest price drops of all. Now, while that may seem like bad news for Brittany, it could just be that the reverse is true. Many potential buyers had been put off by unrealistic property prices in the region. They turned instead to neighbouring Normandy, or to the Limousin and Poitou-Charentes, where lower prices offered better value. However, thanks to a number of factors, Brittany is once more becoming the region of choice for British and other overseas buyers.

One black cloud, one silver lining

Brittany property was sitting under its very own black cloud for a few years. But, the sun is peaking out again and a silver lining is becoming apparent. As a direct result of price falls, property in the region has become much more affordable. So canny buyers are sitting up and taking notice. Investing in Brittany is suddenly attractive again, with rock bottom prices and the market showing signs of recovery, making 2017 an unmissable opportunity.

Brittany at its beautiful best

In case you've been looking elsewhere for a bargain property and have forgotten about Brittany, here's a little reminder of the reasons so many before you have fallen in love with this region.

- Brittany has a stunning and varied coastline. There are beaches for all, with lively, family resorts, quiet coves and dramatic cliffs or long, sandy beaches. (Best Beaches of Brittany.)

- Brittany's countryside is glorious and unspoiled. It's a paradise for nature lovers, for horse riders, walkers and cyclists. There are rivers and lakes, forests and pastures.

- The history, heritage and culture of the region are unrivalled in France. Breton culture is colourful and celebrated through fetes and festivals all over the region. The historic towns and villages offer endless opportunities to discover ancient sites and mysterious monuments. (The Prettiest Villages in Brittany.)

- In spite of its unspoiled nature, Brittany is still well developed for tourism. From adventure parks to gourmet restaurants, the region has everything you'll need for a perfect holiday.

- Brittany has its own ferry ports and airports, so travelling is simplicity itself. Why waste time driving to far flung destinations when you can be at home in Brittany any time you choose?

- Brittany gets more sun than the UK! OK, it's not as hot as the Riviera, but overall, Brittany enjoys around 1950 hours of sunshine per year to the UK's 1350. And, if you head to the southern department of Morbihan, the Gulf Stream keeps things really mild and pleasant.
