Real Estate in France

Real Estate in FranceOnly a few countries in the world can offer as many different things as France – beautiful natural scenery, a rich history, fine examples of different styles off architecture and, of course, great food. These are just some of the reasons why French real estate is highly sought after by foreign buyers. When buying property in France, you can choose from an impressive selection of different types of properties located in many different areas of the country – along the coast, in the French Alps or in Paris. Even better is the fact that the French government has no restrictions on the purchasing of local real estate by foreign investors.

In the coastal area of the Côte d'Azur, you will find luxury properties in such popular destinations as Monaco, Nice, Cannes and St. Tropez. Besides luxury properties, the French Riviera also offers moderately priced apartments, which start at about EUR 150,000.

In the French Alps, buyers can look for properties in popular mountain resorts such as Val d´Isere, Tignes, Les Arc, Courchevel and Meribel. And, if you like both the beach and skiing, you might want to look at the southernmost French ski resort area, Valberg, which is just an hour’s drive from the Côte d'Azur. The proximity of these two different types of resort areas will let you enjoy a morning on the ski slope and an afternoon on a Mediterranean beach.

Tip: France has a well-established, government guaranteed property lease-back program and new properties can be purchased as an investment as part of this government program to support the development of housing. For more information, click here.
