I wasn’t ex­pect­ing to find my prop­erty bar­gain in the south of France, but for just €43,000 I could be the proud owner of this cute one-bed­room cottage in Provence. Just 7km from Sault, the ‘laven­der cap­i­tal‘, and 3km from the Luberon re­gional park, this 19th-cen­tury ham­let house has an open-plan liv­ing-din­ingk­itchen area on the ground floor, while up­stairs there are lovely views of Mont Ven­toux (a famed climb on the Tour de France) from the bed­room. Ref: 448975 Karen Tait, Ed­i­tor Com­ing in just un­der bud­get at €99,000, this charm­ing Bre­ton house would make a great hol­i­day home. Lo­cated just 1.5km from the beaches of Per­ros Guirec and Ploumanac’h on Brit­tany’s pink gran­ite coast, this house has great po­ten­tial as a hol­i­day rental as well. The house has been fully ren­o­vated and of­fers two bed­rooms, a fit­ted kitchen, a liv­ing room with a stone fire­place, and a ter­race where you can en­joy the sun­shine. Ref: 450872 Emma Rawle, Dig­i­tal Ed­i­tor €99,000: Côtes-d’armor Imag­ine how fan­tas­tic this me­dieval house would look in a hol­i­day brochure. It’s in the stun­ning vil­lage of Carennac on the River Dor­dogne and just €96,300. A kitchen-diner and util­ity room oc­cupy the ground floor while the first floor has a lounge with stone seats in the nook of a case­ment win­dow, plus an en­suite dou­ble bed­room and me­dieval stone toi­let – thank­fully just a show­piece! Two more bed­rooms and a bath­room are on the top floor, and there’s a pri­vate walled ter­race out­side. Ref: 450485 Ruth Wood, As­sis­tant Ed­i­tor I’m also just un­der bud­get, but this pretty prop­erty re­ally caught my eye with its pale blue shut­ters and charm­ing front gar­den. In sunny Char­ente-mar­itime, it’s sur­pris­ingly spa­cious in­side with its roomy lounge and two bed­rooms. Plus you get a one-bed­room gîte, ideal for host­ing friends and fam­ily or even rent­ing out to vis­i­tors want­ing to ex­plore the nearby towns of Jarnac and Cognac. A steal at €99,000.
