We have more than our fair share of glorious

châteaux, sumptuous country estates and

swanky ski chalets and you will find some of

the lowest priced, best value, property

in France.

Much of this area is rural France at its best.

With unspoiled views, peaceful towns and

villages, where “local produce” means that the

person selling the fruit and veg probably dug it

up or picked it that morning.

Ignoring the newly created map of France,

we’re labelling central France as the four

traditional regions of Centre, Limousin,

Auvergne and Burgundy. Each of them has a

very different landscape and “feel” but all share

the common traits of beautiful countryside,

friendly locals, historic towns and great value.

Centre

Centre is renowned for having the most

beautiful collection of historic châteaux in

the world. Scattered along the lovely river

Loire they seem to dominate the landscape

and provide a stunning backdrop to the

countryside. The popular towns of Orléans and

Tours are welcoming, pretty and packed full of

historic buildings. Buy a house within striking

distance of either and you’ll never be short of

something to do on a rainy day.
