T

HE SOUTH COAST OF

France stretches for

over 1,700 kms and is

home to some of the

most famous towns,

ports and beaches in the world

(not to mention supercars,

yachts and celebrity residents).

However, I'm going to try and

give you a glimpse of the "support act" too.

INLAND

Head inland and you'll be able

to wander through a labyrinth

of wonderful street markets

in the medieval towns and villages.

You'll have the choice of

visiting some of the finest vineyards

in France (many of which

have an open door policy to

tastings and visits) and, best of

all, you will open up a world of

affordable properties that might

have seemed out of reach.

The world famous Mediterranean coast

offers a heady mix of sunshine, glamour

and surprisingly affordable properties...

THE

LANGUEDOC-ROUSSILLON

Between our teams in Languedoc Roussillon

and PACA we have

around 2,500 properties for

you to choose from. There are

five départements in Languedoc

Roussillon (well, there were before

it was recently swallowed

up into the mammoth region

of Occitanie), with four of them

touching the coast. The southernmost point borders

Spain.

With 3,000 km2 of vineyards

this is an extremely important

winemaking region and hits

the right notes with tourists.

You'll pay a premium price to

be on or near the coast and the

Hérault and Gard have slightly

higher prices given their close

proximity to Montpellier, Nimes

and neighbouring PACA.
