LATEST figures from leading UK residential agent Hamptons International highlight that demand for properties in France has increased by 20 per cent compared with the same time last year.
To respond to this increased demand, Hamptons International hosted a successful three-day “French Property Seminar” event last week across its network in Amersham, Bath and Battersea.
France is one of the most sought-after second home destinations for British buyers looking to purchase abroad due to its ease of access from the UK, value for money and the range of properties available.
Hamptons International has more than 5,000 properties available to buy in France ranging in price from £50,000 right up to £15 million in a range of popular locations from Aquitaine, Dordogne and Brittany to Côte D’Azur and Corsica.
James Butler, senior sales manager of Hamptons International in Henley says: “Over the past year, we’ve seen a notable increase in prospective buyers enquiring about French property. As a result, it seemed an obvious step to host a seminar designed to offer our expertise to those looking to purchase in France.
