1. Nor­mandy new-build

Can you be­lieve this tra­di­tional stone house is just six years old, mean­ing its struc­ture is still un­der guar­an­tee for an­other four years? Walk­ing dis­tance from the vil­lage ameni­ties of St-pois and just 75 min­utes from the Caen ferry, it’s comfy, mod­ern and con­ve­nient, yet with all the charm of ru­ral France. For €265,000 you get a three-bed­room, three bath­room de­tached house with a dou­ble garage in al­most an acre of land close to a lake and golf course and 50 min­utes from Granville beach.

A few min­utes from this strik­ing coun­try home is the pop­u­lar Tarn-et-garonne town of StAn­tonin-no­ble-val with its shops, restau­rants and mar­ket. The house sits in se­cluded grounds of just over an acre and comes with a heated pool, pool house, barn and su­perb views.

5. Vine vil­lage villa

There’s re­ally noth­ing to do at this Mediter­ranean villa other than pay your €258,000 and then sit back on the south-fac­ing ter­race with a glass of the lo­cal red. Ideally placed on a man­age­able cor­ner plot in the wine-pro­duc­ing vil­lage of Fi­tou, the re­cently built prop­erty is un­der guar­an­tee un­til 2022 and has three bed­rooms, an open-plan liv­ing area and in­te­gral garage all on the ground floor.

7. Love at first like

We’re not sur­prised our Face­book fans fell head over heels in ‘like’ with this three-bed­room home in the Périg­ord-limousin re­gional park, priced at just €179,000. Grace­fully re­stored in­side and out (we par­tic­u­larly love the orig­i­nal floor­boards), it’s in a peace­ful ham­let with no pass­ing traf­fic near a boulan­gerie and the his­toric town of Roche­chouart. The loft could be con­verted as could the barn in the gar­den where there is also an open hangar (cur­rently a games room) and cov­ered wood store. Tel: 0033 (0)5 55 28 46 40 allez-fran­cais.com

Hid­den be­hind grand gates on the banks of the Canal du Midi in the Aude vil­lage of Homps is a lovely lit­tle walled gar­den with plunge pool and Mediter­ranean shrubs.

It in­cludes five bed­rooms, three bath­rooms, two liv­ing rooms and a vast kitchen-diner open­ing onto the gar­den.
