  1. I went hiking in the Ecrins national park in the summer (lost a toenail but that's probably too much info) - agree, it's absolutely stunning
  2. Does anyone have any experience of buying property in or living in a national park in France?
  3. Have you already bought a property in France? I'm after views on the process, and how you found it compared to buying property in the UK. Look forward to hearing from you at karen.tait@archant.co.uk

  4. We're proud to announce the launch of the France Property Shop app, the first of its kind for the ipad. It's really easy and fun to use - just scroll through colour photos and details of beautiful properties from all over France (from our market-leading property portal, www.francepropertyshop.com) and save any you fancy to 'favourites'. You'll be pleased to hear, I'm sure, that it's free to download!

    Read more about it here:

    It's available here, let us know what you think:

  6. Good news for once! Sarkozy has indeed made a u-turn on the proposed tax - great news for all British owners of holiday homes in France! We're all smiles at French Property News today. For more information, see:

  7. We're looking for people who split their time between the UK and France, and think they have the best of 'home and away' - if that applies to you, please email me at karen.tait@archant.co.uk
  8. While most of us object to this tax, for various reasons not least because it may well be discriminatory under EU law, and not forgetting all the euros British holiday homeowners pour into France's coffers, at least it seems that the tax would be less than initially feared. As most Brits who buy in France tend to choose rural locations, rather than glitzier and pricier Riviera and Paris locations, for example, the notional rental values of their properties are really rather low, meaning the 20% of this value that would be payable as tax will also be fairly nominal. Of course, most people who own a holiday home in rural France aren't jetsetters, and haven't easily afforded their 'dream', as has been suggested, so any extra expense is bad news. Let's hope Sarkozy sees sense and puts this proposal where it deserves to be - in the bin!

  9. We are planning a retirement supplement with Living France magazine, which will include some case studies. If you've retired to France and would like to be included, please email me (ideally by 13th March).
