"It's been remarkable to see the explosion in popularity

(and property prices) in Bordeaux and it could well be

that La Rochelle is next. A couple of hours up the coast,

it is home to the newest university in France (which

Francesca went to) and mixes a youthful energy with a

chic and growing population. The balmy climate makes

it an ideal spot for either a holiday/permanent home

and the strong rental demand makes it perfect for investors."

Francesca and Elinor Murless are our local agents in

and around La Rochelle

LEGGETT MAGAZINE THE SOUTH WEST

Découvrir...

Le Sud-Ouest

La Nouvelle-Aquitaine comprend désormais tous les

départements du Sud-Ouest de la France dont certains bien

connus de notre clientèle internationale

tels la Dordogne, la Charente ou la Creuse. La région

occupe une très grande partie de la côte atlantique,

de la Rochelle à la frontière espagnole, en passant par

Royan et Bordeaux. En plus de plages merveilleuses,

l'on y découvre quelques-uns des plus importants vignobles et vins de France.

Au cœur des terres, le prix de l'immobilier est remarquablement bas.

En effet, c'est dans le nord et l'est de

la région que se trouvent quelques-uns des prix les

plus abordables de France. A titre d'exemple, le prix

moyen d'une maison dans la Creuse est de 73 000 €,

de 95 000 € en Corrèze et de tout juste 119 600 € en

Dordogne.

Leggett Immobilier a un portefeuille de plus de 7500

propriétés en Nouvelle-Aquitaine allant de la petite

maison de 2 chambres à rénover, dans le Limousin,

commercialisée 10 000 € au château du 12e siècle

avec 500 hectares de terre, en Dordogne, à 15 millions d'euros

… Il y a ici de quoi satisfaire absolument

tous les budgets !

amongst the lowest in France.

For instance, the average property price

in Creuse is 73,000

euros, in Corrèze it is 95,000

euros and in the Dordogne it is

119,600 euros.

Leggett has around 7,500

listings within Nouvelle Aquitaine; ranging

from a two bed

house to renovate, priced at

10,000 euros in the Limousin,

to a 15 million euros, 12th century château with 500 hectares

in the Dordogne…..in other

words, we have something for

everyone.

If you don't know the area

I'd suggest you look along

some of the river valleys - the

Dordogne, Charente, Gironde

and Vienne are four that spring

to mind but there are many

more. Along these you will find

literally hundreds of pretty

market towns with a history

steeped in river commerce. For

example, if you visit the quay

side in Cognac you will be able

to join the American, Chinese

and other tourists on a trip in

one of the flat bottomed boats

(gabares) that were used to

transport cognac, salt and other

produce. Don't forget to stop at

Hennessy, Remy Martin or Courvoisier

for a guided tour and a

personal tasting session too.

Of course, you'll pay a premium if you

want to be on or

near the coast and it's vital that

you seek advice from an experienced

local agent who lives and

works in the area… that's where

we come in!

Anyway, enough from me,

I have my chickens, ducks and

garden to attend to - hope to

see you in my particular corner

of France soon.
