Focus on Picardie

For British buyers looking to pick up a cheap and convenient property in France, they should look no further than the town of Picardie. With Christmas coming up, Picardie boasts some fantastic Christmas markets and just 2 hours drive from Calais, it is perfectly placed for British buyers looking to buy a French property.

As well as good transport links for the UK, Picardie also has good transport links to France’s capital city Paris, making it a useful place to buy. Although not a premier tourist destination, it does contain many tourist attractions including museums and monuments to the Battle of the Somme. There are also many architecturally beautiful buildings from gothic cathedrals to chateaux to fortified churches and abbeys. For those who prefer something a little more active, there are over 70 parks and gardens with plenty of opportunities for sports such as hiking, golf, horse-riding and sand-yachting.

This means that there is a good rental market and there is plenty of potential for buy-to-let properties. With such a wealth of history, Picardie also has properties to suit most tastes – from 14th century houses up to modern, luxury property.

With Christmas on the horizon, Picardie is starting to host a wealth of Christmas markets – kill two birds with one stone by house hunting whilst also enjoying the Christmas shopping this French town has to offer.
