A busy week in the world of Languedoc property

Well I don't think that we're about to see prices start rocketing up but activity levels in the world of Languedoc property have most definately picked up. Or is it that activity levels are the same but the quality of buyers have improved? I think it's a bit of both.

Certainly this is the time of year when the most serious buyers tend to fly out for a 3-4 day property search trip and at the moment I have some very serious buyers indeed who are here hoping to see the house of their dreams.

This week has seen some very interesting new houses come onto the market as well.

  • I've just been instructed on a really nice 2 double bed, 2 bath village house in Puissalicon, with small private courtyard garden, in good condition, with original features at a very sensible €135,000. 

It's going to take me a few days to get photos and measurements organised but watch this space.

  • This afternoon I'm going to see a 150 sqm 3 bed village house in Abeilhan with courtyard garden, roof terrace and aparently some fabulous views. This looks like it will be in the €230,000 region but I'll confirm this once I've seen it.

  • And last but by no means least, one of the most amazing period village houses I have ever seen. Think village house meets chateau with a large helping of "Grand Designs" and you'll be on the right track.

In the pretty village of Nebian, 3-5 beds, depending on how you use the space, huge 100 sqm vaulted reception room, 2 terraces, garage and a seriously big dollop of "WOW". I showed this to clients yesterday who are thinking of making an offer so we'll have to see what happens over the weekend but if they don't go for it and you've got €295,000 in your pocket then I suggest you get onto ryanair.com as fast as you can and get over here quickly.

More info and photos to follow but for now you can see the locations of these three villages on the map below.

Villa in Caux a real winner

Yesterday I visited a fabulous villa in Caux, just outside Pezenas.

This villa in Caux is a really smart modern villa made of lovely big blocks of stone. Unusual but it works very well. It's 3 double bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 shower room and lovely big reception/dining room with modern open-plan kitchen.

The house is around 125 sqm of living space plus garage and sits on a plot of just under 900 sqm.

It has gas run underfloor heating throughout and a lovely landscaped garden with fabulous summer terrace and swimming pool.

The house is expected to come onto the market in the next week or so at around €350-375,000 which is pretty much the right price for a house of such quality. It's in a really nice location and is sure to generate plenty of attention.

If you're planning a viewing trip to France and would like to get a preview of this fab villa in Caux then call me now on 00 33 467 00 11 71 to arange a viewing.
