The "French property" page - the starting point for browsing property

If you know what sort of property you're looking for but can't seem to find it, then this page should help you...

The Main Areas of the "French property" page...

This is the main page to find French property that is for sale. You can get to this page by clicking the link numbered 1.

From the "French Property" page there are six main ways to start your search. These are shown numbered 2 - 7 and are explained below.

You can find property:

2 - By Location - Region, Town  or Department

3 - By Type or Specific Features e.g. Needing Renovation

4 - By Price or Time on market e.g. cheapest

5 - By Reference number

6 - By using quick links to find property by Region 

7 - By using quick links to Selected Property Hotspots


2 - Find Property by Location - including Region, Town or Department

Some people know exactly where they want to be, others don't. Either way, you can use the links labelled 2. The links offer the following options:

  • You can search throughout France for your dream property (all property on our site is shown here).
  • You can search by region if you're familiar with an area, perhaps Burgundy if you're a wine buff, or the Rhône-Alpes if you're an ardent skier.
  • You can narrow your search to find property by the department, perhaps in the Dordogne department of Aquitaine or in the Côtes-d'Armor department of Brittany.
  • If you know the town where you'd like to live, having seen it on TV or read about it in the papers, you can refine your search further and search by town.

3 - Find Property by Type or Specific Features e.g. Needing Renovation

If you have specific requirements for your property, use the links labelled 3. Search for property with your precise needs in mind:

  • You're a keen swimmer (or sun-worshipper!), you want a property with a swimming pool.
  • You're after a renovation project, so that you can get the exact home you want and utilise your DIY skills at the same time.
  • DIY is just not your thing. You want somewhere that needs no work at all and is ready to move into.
  • You're a very keen skier, looking for a ski chalet with easy access to slopes.
  • You need to work in France, so are looking for a commercial property or business such as a bar or restaurant.
  • Do you hanker after space and fresh air? Why not search for property with land or land on its own?
  • Are you a keen fisherman? Perhaps property with a lake on site would be of interest to you?
