Top 10 reasons why we love France

Posted on 17th May 2017


From the food to the scenery and the wine to the climate, there are endless reasons to love France and why it remains the number one choice for Brits buying a property abroad. Find your dream home at the French Property Exhibition at Olympia London on 16-17 September 2017.

1. The food
From freshly baked croissants and baguettes for breakfast, moules frites on the coast and speciality cheeses, French food is, in our opinion, the best in the world.

2. The stunning scenery
France has it all – majestic mountain ranges, spectacular coastline, fields of lavender, medieval villages and stylish towns. What are you looking for from your region of choice?

3. Shutters
Is there anything more French than a classic blue shutter? It is definitely top of our French property wish list. There will be plenty of properties with shutters to browse from at The French Property Exhibition.

4. The mountains
With no less than five mountain ranges, France certainly has something for everyone whether you want to scale Mont Blanc or hike the Jura. No matter how often you visit the mountains they will take your breath away every single time.

5. The climate
Whether you like scorching hot days on the beach or wading through snow to the shops, there will be an area of France where the climate suits you. And with so many micro-climates you don’t have to go too far south to find a bit of sunshine.

6. The wine
The Loire Valley, Bordeaux, Burgundy. France is home to world-famous wines as well as plenty of delicious local vintages. It would be rude not to try it!

7. French markets
One of the best things about France is the markets. The perfect way to start your Saturday morning is to browse the stalls selling delicious local produce.

8. French properties
We may be biased but French properties are just stunning. And there is so much variety – old stone farmhouses, grand manor houses, Provencal villas, Parisian apartments, half-timbered homes and period village houses, how can one possibly choose? Find your perfect property and talk to the experts about your wish list at the French Property Exhibition.

9. Café culture
Is there a better way to spend a sunny afternoon that sipping un café and watching the world pass you by?

10. French villages
There are 153 villages classified as the Plus Beaux Villages de France (the most beautiful villages in France) and hundreds more than could easily be on the list. Do you have any in mind?

The French Property Exhibition takes place at Olympia London on 16-17 September, from 10am to 5pm. Bringing together the experts from the legal, financial, currency and removals worlds plus hosting a programme of informative seminars each day, you can find out all you need to know about buying in France under one roof.
