FRANCE PROP­ERTY SHOP

Living France - - Les Pratiques -

Shee­lagh Gorham from Agence New­ton Im­mo­bilier has cho­sen this pic­turesque stone farm­house in Nor­mandy as her prop­erty of the month. Tucked away at the end of a tree-lined drive­way, this prop­erty of­fers pri­vacy while be­ing only 10 min­utes’ drive away from Granville. The ground floor com­prises a fit­ted kitchen and a lounge with a wood burner and there are three bed­rooms up­stairs. Sur­rounded by a large plot of land, it would be an ideal eques­trian prop­erty and is for sale for €371,000. agence­new­ton.com Those who are tired of start­ing the work­ing day with a fran­tic dash from the train sta­tion to the of­fice desk may be glad to hear SNCF’s lat­est idea to help with the morn­ing com­mute. The French rail­way ser­vice has put for­ward the sug­ges­tion to make of­fice spa­ces, com­plete with meet­ing rooms, PCs and other fa­cil­i­ties, avail­able to com­muters at train sta­tions in France in a bid to re­duce the daily stress for com­muters and tackle over­crowd­ing on trains at peak times. A trial pe­riod for the ini­tia­tive started on 18 July.
