This property is offered by private sale by the owners, and thereby saving buyers the additional cost of estate agents’ fees, which, in France, are paid by the purchaser.
This is a home that offers an opportunity to immediately start your life in this beautiful part of France, between sea and countryside. There are no necessary major building works to disrupt to your lives. All the mess and dust have already come and gone! There are no barns and outbuildings that need to be renovated and that will swallow up large and unexpected sums of money! There are not acres of land to steal hours of precious time in mowing and maintenance! There is just ‘Time’, your time. You will have the time to enjoy the lifestyle you want, waiting for you to start as soon as you have unpacked.
