LEGGETT MAGAZINE NORTH EAST & CENTRAL

LEGGETT IMMOBILIER - LOCAL KNOWLEDGE YOU CAN TRUST

start with Paris.  The City of Lights

has a landscape known the world

over. Notre Dame is the most visited attraction

(not the Eiffel Tower

as many imagine) and the Louvre is

the most popular art gallery in the

world. Property in Paris attracts investors

from all over the planet and

our team here sell a combination of

properties as pure investment, as

holiday homes and as full time residences.

The market is hot and without a

knowledgeable local agent on

the ground, you will simply miss out

on the best properties.

Further afield you will find a

property market that has been becalmed since

2008, particularly in

rural areas.  The last 12 months has

seen a significant upturn in sales

though (9%) and this means that

prices are beginning to rise and

there are bargains to be had.

Let's take some départements as

examples.  At one extreme, Indre has

an average property price of just

82,000 euros, we have around 200

listings in this département and they

start at an incredible 12,000 euros.

Look through our portfolio in neighbouring Indre-et-Loire

and you'll

also find plenty of decent properties for

well under 100,000 euros.

FTER THE RECENT reshuffle and

renaming of

the regions

of France, the North

East and Central areas of

France now

have deliciously convoluted names:

Centre-Val de Loire, Ile de France,

Bourgogne Franche Comte, Nord Pas

de Calais-Picardie and (best of all)

Alsace-Champagne-Ardenne-Lorraine.

Of course, the history, beauty

and culture of these regions hasn't

changed a bit.  If you exclude central

Paris, this is an area of France that

is, largely, unknown to international buyers

yet it possesses a combination of

glorious countryside and

bargain property to rival that of the

Dordogne, Charente and other popular enclaves.

First though we simply have to

Notre Dame,

Paris. "Le Marais in Paris is the perfect spot. The

small and winding Mediaeval lanes are

packed with unique commerce. Think of bespoke

boutiques, traditional pastry shops, hip

designers and a general ambiance that makes

you want to grab a seat at an outdoor café

and just watch the world go by. I defy you to

find a more beautiful square in Europe than

Place des Vosges."

ONE TO WATCH

de-Calais and you'll come across an

attractive landscape that many visitors

simply drive through, without

stopping, on their way south.  Park

the car and you'll find some of the

most unspoilt, genuine, villages in

France and with an average property price

of 132,000 euros you will

be accessing property that is terrific

value for money. I'd urge you to take

a look at some of the villages on

and close to the coast - particularly

if you live in the UK or Belgium, as

they are just so pretty and so easy

to get to.

Finally, Burgundy is renowned

for the quality of its wine and the

beauty of its landscape and, again,

is a hidden gem of a region. The

vineyards start around the cracking

town of Joigny - this is one of my favourite

spots in France, and I know

a superb 2* Michelin restaurant and

can be there in under an hour and a

half from Paris.

CÔte d'Or boasts some of the

finest vineyards in the world with

a colourful, rolling, countryside.

The average property price here is

156,100 euros, which doesn't seem

a lot for the ability to fill your cave

with Nuits-St-Georges, Ladoix and

some of the Beaune classics!

Les régions du Centre de la France ont désormais des noms délicieusement alambiqués

: Centre-Val-de-Loire, Île-de-France, Bourgogne-Franche-Comté,

Hauts-de-France et Grand-Est. Elles n'ont

cependant rien perdu de leur l'histoire, de leur beauté et de leur

culture.

Paris est la « Ville Lumière ». La capitale la plus visitée au monde

connait un marché immobilier en plein essor. Quel que soit votre

projet, contactez nos agents Leggett sur-place qui sauront vous

présenter une très jolie sélection de biens et vous aider à dénicher

En province, vous serez peut-être surpris de découvrir d'excellents

rapports qualité-prix : le prix moyen d'une maison dans l'Indre est

de tout juste 82 000 euros, dans le Pas-de-Calais le prix moyen ne

dépasse pas 132 000 € et en Bourgogne, malgré la réputation des

terroirs, il atteint seulement 156 000 €.
