Ryanair airports in the centre of France

Central France, with its green, rolling countryside, elegant chateaux (The Best Chateaux on the Market in 2011), gentle climate, and shimmering lakes, currently (in 2011) has two airports that are served by Ryanair. The first is Tours (TUF) and the second is Limoges (LIG). Below you will find property hotspots that are found close to these airports, as well as property currently for sale there.

1. The best property near Tours airport

Tours is a great city set in a fascinating part of France ( Tours Property Guide). Its central location, in the Centre Val de Loire region ( Central Loire Valley Property Guide), offers endless possibilities for further exploration of the area too (it's a major wine producing region, so wine lovers will be in their element) and there are more than enough wonderful places to visit in the locality to keep you occupied. Flights leave for Tours airport from London Stansted and Manchester.

Elegant and cultured city 
Apart from being elegant and cultured, Tours is also packed with young people (thanks to its University) and tourists, creating a vibrant atmosphere and a never ending source of things to do and see.

Famous for the Cadre Noir and mushrooms! 
Not far from the airport of Tours and all the attractions of the region is Saumur (Saumur Property Guide), just across the border into the Pays de la Loire. (It is closer to the Tours airport hub than to Nantes airport, also served by Ryanair.) Saumur is a beautiful, historic town showcasing stunning architecture and monuments as well as being notable for the Cadre Noir, the crack French horsemen whose home and working centre is in this town. Saumur has yet another claim to fame, namely mushrooms! Mysterious mushroom caves can be discovered, and of course, there are many delicacies made from this amazing fungus.

2. The best property near Limoges airport

Limoges, capital city of the Limousin region (Limousin Property Guide), is another central destination that is served by Ryanair's budget flights. The British and Irish have long been keen investors in the property market in this green and rural region, attracted by the glorious countryside of meadows, lakes and woodlands and also to quite some degree, by the low prices and amazing value for money of property in the Limousin. Currently (2011), Ryanair flies from London Stansted, Bristol, Leeds Bradford, East Midlands and Liverpool.

Lively university town  
Limoges (Limoges Property Guide) is a university town, enlivened by its student population yet rooted and grounded by its history, heritage and culture. Limoges Porcelain is, of course, famed all over the civilised world. Being located in a city, whilst perfect for some, is not, of course, for everyone, but there is no need to worry as this region has some of the most delightful green spaces in France, and plenty of pretty rural towns and villages where you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the country.
