Living France - - Promotion -

IT’S BACK for 2017: the UK’s big­gest cel­e­bra­tion of France, from dream houses to food, wine and hol­i­days. A blend of fun and all things prop­erty re­lated, The France Show takes place at Lon­don Olympia from 27-29 Jan­uary 2017. It’s a not-to-be-missed event for any­one look­ing to buy a house across the Chan­nel.

Don’t let a weak pound get in the way of your French prop­erty dream, it’s ac­tu­ally a great time to buy in France now with low mort­gage rates, sta­ble house prices and many ven­dors open to ne­go­ti­a­tion. In fact, it’s a buyer’s mar­ket in France right now, with many ven­dors open to ne­go­ti­a­tion and some real bar­gains on of­fer.

For a whole week­end in Jan­uary, Lon­don Olympia will be packed with es­tate agents sell­ing houses from across France. Pro­fes­sion­als with in-depth knowl­edge of buy­ing prop­erty and liv­ing in France will also be on hand, so if you’re in need of ad­vice on fi­nance, law, re­movals, cur­rency or start­ing a busi­ness, this is your op­por­tu­nity to ask the ex­perts.

In the Prop­erty The­atres, a packed pro­gramme of sem­i­nars will shed light on key top­ics for house-hunters. These ses­sions, lead by those in the know, are a chance to get in-depth in­for­ma­tion to help you make the right choices. Whether you’re con­sid­er­ing where to buy, want some ad­vice on bank­ing or need to know more about in­her­i­tance law, don’t miss these sem­i­nars. Through­out the week­end, ex­perts will also be on their stands to an­swer your ques­tions, so make sure you don’t miss out.

The France Show is also the place to in­dulge your love of

France and there will be plenty of chances to do just that over the three days. Find out more about what the dif­fer­ent re­gions have to of­fer and pick up tips on im­prov­ing your French and travel ideas in the Lan­guage and Travel Fo­rum. On the Flavours of France stage, co­me­dian Ian Moore, best­selling au­thor Carol Drinkwa­ter, Savoy-trained chef Guy Wol­ley and Sunday Tele­graph wine ex­pert Susy Atkins will be en­ter­tain­ing the au­di­ence, not for­get­ting the high kicks of the can can dancers!

When you’ve com­pleted your prop­erty re­search, head to the show’s French mar­ket to shop for re­gional gas­tron­omy and ar­ti­san prod­ucts. And don’t for­get to book in for a Bordeaux wine tast­ing with ex­perts. If you find your dream prop­erty at Lon­don Olympia you’ll re­ally have a rea­son to raise a glass or two!

A visit to The France Show is a not-to-be-missed mix of in­spi­ra­tion and es­sen­tial ad­vice; what bet­ter way to start 2017?
