Living France - - LES PRATIQUES -

It might be rel­a­tively un­known to many Bri­tish buy­ers, but the depart­ment of Drôme in Rhône-Alpes ex­pe­ri­enced a surge in in­ter­est in Novem­ber ac­cord­ing to Right­move Over­seas’ monthly search re­port. The num­ber of searches for the depart­ment in­creased by a mas­sive 84.21% in Novem­ber 2015 com­pared to the pre­vi­ous month, push­ing Drôme 259 places up the rank­ings. Drôme is one of France’s best-kept se­crets. Sand­wiched be­tween the Alps and Provence it en­joys the best of both with fra­grant laven­der fields and soar­ing peaks. Not to men­tion an av­er­age prop­erty price of €180,000, which is con­sid­er­ably less than the av­er­age for both Rhône-Alpes (€214,000) and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur (€293,000).
