Living France - - LES PRATIQUES -

It was a suc­cess­ful first run for the French Prop­erty Ex­hi­bi­tion that took place at New­bury race­course from 17-18 March.

Vis­i­tors turned out in force to this first-time event to pe­ruse thou­sands of the lat­est prop­er­ties on the mar­ket from es­tate agents across France, and to attend the pro­gramme of free sem­i­nars cov­er­ing top­ics in­clud­ing tax­a­tion, in­vest­ments and how to make a liv­ing in France. One op­tion for em­ploy­ment was pre­sented by ex­hibitor and spon­sor CA Brit­line, as the French bank­ing com­pany is cur­rently re­cruit­ing.

Show ex­hibitor Samm Khoury from Richard Im­mo­bilier said that Brexit grum­blings made her un­der­es­ti­mate just how pop­u­lar the show would be. “We didn’t ex­pect it to be busy due to the talk sur­round­ing Brexit, but we were pleas­antly sur­prised at how many se­ri­ous buy­ers it at­tracted and with good bud­gets, too,” she said fol­low­ing the show.

Jeanne Bo­den from luxury prop­erty de­vel­op­ers La Du­rantie was en­cour­aged to ex­hibit fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful week­end at The France Show in Jan­uary and said that New­bury was ev­ery bit as fruit­ful. “I’m happy with the leads the show has gen­er­ated,” she said, be­fore adding, “Also, it was great to set up with­out the has­sle of Lon­don parking.”

If you’re still look­ing for your dream home in France, the next prop­erty ex­hi­bi­tion takes place at Wetherby race­course in York­shire from 12-13 May. En­trance is free and you can reg­is­ter for tick­ets on­line at fpey­ork­shire.com.
