Brexit. Understandably, everyone is talking about ‘Brexit’. I may be naive, but I think and hope that pragmatism will prevail. From a personal perspective, we have many French friends, as well as business colleagues, who also hope that a deal will be agreed. So, I am writing this newsletter in a positive frame of mind!
Provence. During a week in Provence in the summer (unfortunately not A Year in Provence!) I took the opportunity to meet our partner agents in Port Grimaud and La-Garde-Freinet. Port Grimaud is part of the commune of Grimaud a few km inland. It is situated in the bay of St. Tropez and sometimes referred to as the 'Venice of Provence'. Originally an area with marshes and sand dunes it is now a thriving village with canals and four islands connected by bridges. The houses and apartments are in keeping with traditional Provençale architecture with different colours and styles. Many of the fisherman style houses have their own moorings and whether you like serious sailing or just ‘messing around in boats’ it’s a delight! Apartments: studios from about €140K, 1 bed from about €230K and 2 bed from around €300K. Houses start at around €500K rising to around €4m.
La Garde-Freinet is a lovely village dating from medieval times. It is located about 15km to the north west of Saint-Tropez in the Massif des Maures with old stone houses, a village square and a selection of shops, art galleries and bars / restaurants. La Garde-Freinet is well known for its chestnuts and chestnut cream and is a lovely area for walking and hiking.
Viewings. The autumn and winter can be good times to look at properties when you are likely to see them in their true colours without wall to wall sunshine and blue skies.
Alpine properties, The winter months provide a great opportunity for skiers to view properties in the Alpes near the 'pistes' Our partner agents have plenty of interesting properties, whether a studio apartment for around €50,00 or larger apartments at whatever price you wish to pay. There are also plenty of beautiful chalets as well. Some of our agents have seasonal rentals, so let us know if you would like any recommendations.
French bread law. Totally unrelated to property! The law states that traditional baguettes have to be made on the premises where they're sold and can only be made with four ingredients: wheat flour, water, salt and yeast. They can't be frozen at any stage or contain additives or preservatives, which also means they go stale within 24 hours!
We are now primarily search agents with a limited range of properties on our web site. However, remember that there are no extra charges for searching out properties for you and to do this we need to know what you would like and where, not forgetting your budget.
