by Robbie Doyle on 22-11-2019 in Aritcles1


France, in Western Europe, encompasses medieval cities, alpine villages and Mediterranean beaches. Paris, its capital, is famed for its fashion houses, classical art museums including the Louvre and monuments like the Eiffel Tower.

The country is also renowned for its wines and sophisticated cuisine. Lascaux’s ancient cave drawings, Lyon’s Roman theatre and the vast Palace of Versailles attest to its rich history.

France has a population of 67 Million, of which, 7% are born abroad. The diversity is reflected in all areas of culture and cuisine. This is what makes this beautiful country so interesting.

The country is divided into 18 administrative regions, of which 13 are located in metropolitan France, while the other five are overseas regions. For the sake of this blog, we are concentrating on the 13 metropolitan regions.

If you have never visited France then you are in for a great treat. However; you may need a little help in choosing a property type or area. For this reason, we will be producing a number of blog postings featuring properties from around all the regions of France. We hope to offer you some fantastic properties that will both delight and enthral.
