LEGGETT MAGAZINE NORTH EAST & CENTRAL

LEGGETT IMMOBILIER - LOCAL KNOWLEDGE YOU CAN TRUST

don't stop until they hit the Alps

or south west. They are missing

out on some of France's prettiest villages

and spectacular

countryside. I defy you to travel

through the golden vineyards

of Burgundy on an autumn evening without stopping the car

and just staring in wonderment.

If you Google "Les plus

beaux villages de France" you

will find that we have more than

our fair share in this neck of the

woods. Take Hauts de France for

example - Montreuil is a beautiful village

famed for its floral

displays and Boulogne-sur-Mer

is possibly the prettiest of all

the port towns. You will find

that property prices in Hauts de

France are most attractive with

international buyers spending

around 175,000 euros. Most

buyers here are from Belgium

and Holland although there are

an increasing number from the

UK who appreciate the value for

money.

Moving further south we

come to Paris, my home town.

The Leggett team has grown

"Chinon sits in the heart of "The garden of

France" and is a personal favourite. It is a

UNESCO world heritage site. Some of the

half-timber houses date back to the 15th

century and it is easy to lose a day visiting the churches

and historic monuments

in the old town. The towering fortress in

the centre of town looks out over the surrounding

vineyards - even my Parisian

husband is wowed when we visit!

Charlotte Field is one of our agents in the

Loire Valley

ONE TO WATCH

over the last few years and it

struck me the other day that we

now have properties on both the

left and right banks of the River

Seine in each of the arrondissements. We

even have a luxurious Clipper for

sale, moored

right next to Notre Dame, in perhaps the best location in Paris.

Property here sells quickly

and it is not easy to keep our

listings up to date - if you are

interested in buying in the capital, then I strongly

suggest that

you contact one of our team

and allow us to source the right

property for you. Our network

of local contacts and vendors

is second to none and I am confident that

we would be able

to find you something special.

As an aside, you might be interested

to know that I use my

scooter to get around Paris for

valuations and to find suitable

buildings, while my colleague,

Dominique Petit, goes one better and uses a push bike!

Head south of Paris and

you hit the Loire Valley, home

to the most glorious châteaux

in the world. The names trip off

the tongue: Blois, Chenonceaux,

Chambord and Villandry are

four of the best, and the gardens

in the latter are truly a sight to

behold.

Rather like Paris this is

an area that attracts tourists

throughout the year - the difference

being that while the

castles in Eurodisney are fake,

these are the real thing, The

river Loire meanders through

the region and plays host to

some wonderful towns and villages.

Head to one of the colourful local markets

and you'll

hear accents from all over the

world….many of them have fallen in love

with the valley and

either bought a holiday home or

moved here permanently.

Sadly, I have run out of

words and I don't have room to

tell you about some of the other,

less well known, gems in north

east and central France. Please

don't hesitate to get in touch

with any of the Leggett agents

in these regions though - they

will be only too delighted to

share their knowledge and tell

you about their local climate,

geography, house prices, villages,

restaurants, markets and

schools.
