Abstract

It is estimated that about five million people in the UK are considering buying a property abroad and as baby boomers cash in their assets and this number is likely to increase. Congestion charges, relentless taxation, disillusion with politics, and not least a stream of television programmes have started an irreversible southward migration into warmer climes. Despite the current strength of the Euro, French property continues to represent excellent value for money and plenty of opportunities to explore the delights of restoring an older property.
