The Best Country Places In France

Two of the best regions of France to buy property are Burgundy, located in the east of central France, and Poitou-Charentes, in the southwest. Both offer rural living in gorgeous scenery, while still having attractive property prices and excellent transport links for the family to come over. And, of course, there’s that enviable French quality of life.

Living in Poitou-Charentes

This is a wonderfully diverse region. There’s lush green countryside, seaside towns, wooded valleys as well as canals and superb hiking trails. It’s the perfect area for those who love the outdoors.

This is an ideal location if you’re thinking of country homes in France. The region has three natural parks (Brenne, Loie-Anjou-Touraine, the Marais-Poitevin). The region is largely low-lying, with plenty of rivers and lakes.

Take a look, for example, at this four-bedroom, renovated stone rural home with a heated swimming pool. It’s located on the edge of a hamlet, thus offering the peace of the countryside without being completely isolated. The asking price is just €243,800.

Living in Burgundy

This historic land of the Dukes of Burgundy boasts a rich history, beautiful countryside and, of course, extensive vines. Property types range from châteaux and ‘maisons de maître’ (manor houses) to traditional timber-and-stone cottages and modern villas. You’re in the countryside but can easily access Paris or the South with the excellent motorway network.

Finding a beautiful countryside property in this area should not prove too difficult. Take a look, for example, at this stunning 4 bedroomed detached villa, being sold with a large garden, an acre of land and a barn at €250,000.
