Arch and Needle: cliffs in Etretat, Normandy
Upper-Normandy is a young dynamic region. Young because a third of its population is less then 25. Dynamic because of its companies, infrastructure, road network and proximity to Paris. Buying property in Normandy is a great investment because there is a strong rental potential with the capital just 60 minutes away. You can find a good number of character houses, like the houses for sale in Honfleur, Fécamp, or one of the other charming cities in the region. And of course, it is impossible to leave the region without dropping in to Etretat to admire the famous Hollow Needle made famous by Arsène Lupin, a well known character from the novels of author Maurice Leblanc.
Thanks to its companies, its infrastructure, and its proximity to Paris, Seine-Maritime is a young and dynamic department. But a great deal more as well! The Alabaster Coast and its high white cliffs, Fécamp, Etretat, Rouen, the town of a hundred bell towers... so many places where everybody will find what they are looking for. Then there is the Country of Bray, with its green meadows and forests, just waiting for fans of country landscapes. Buying a property in Haute-Normandie is a good investment because there is real rental potential with the capital being so close. For a main or second house: a manor style house in Rouen, an apartment with sea views in Fécamp, or a country house in the Country of Bray... among others!
Just a stone's throw from Paris, Eure is a department which reserves marvels of art and architecture for its visitors at the heart of gentle, green countryside: Giverny and the gardens of Monet, Château-Gaillard, Vernon, Pont-Audemer, the lovely thatched cottages of Vieux-Port... and so many others. Its prefecture, Evreux, ancient gallo-roman town, is candidate for the label of town of art and history. And let's not forget, for country lovers, the magnificent forest of Lyons, or the Regional Nature Park of Boules de la Seine Normande. Property in Eure is fairly affordable despite the proximity of Paris and offers a wide choice of properties for sale. An apartment with view in Andelys, a norman farmhouse in Pont-Audemer, or a well to do house at the heart of Evreux... the choice is yours!
