In most of France, sales of property have been slow, but Languedoc is bucking the trend and continues to attract a lot of people to come to live here. However, although Languedoc is the most popular area, prices in Languedoc have only risen slightly as a lot more land has been released for new building.
According to the up-coming exhibitions like “A Place in the Sun” and “Vive la France”, the numbers of people now thinking of moving from Northern Europe to sunnier places, like here in Languedoc in the South of France, has increased steadily in recent years and is still very strong, although in many other regions of France the oposite seems to be happening – I fully understand, we left the UK over 20 years ago to find a better life (and we found it here by the Mediterranean).
If you are coming to Languedoc to look for property, stay with us in Villa Roquette and take advantage of my free service. With over 20 years of experience in France, buying, selling and renovating properties. I know which agents to trust and those to avoid, I know the region well and I can show you round and save you a lot of time.
My aim is to offer you accommodation in our home. I am not hasseling for sales commission, or pushing “bargains”. I give straightforward help and advice as a free service, no strings attached.
Make your base Villa Roquette in the heart of Languedoc, it will save you time and could save you a lot of money.
I am back on the computer marketing our accommodation in Villa Roquette for the winter months – we have some long term tenants already booked who will be escaping the grey skies for winter, but we still have two more apartments and a couple of B&Bs we can offer for short or long-term.
With air fares from the UK now low again after the summer high season, (you can get a return from the UK to Montpellier for £14 or less). Take advantage of our lower autumn rates and stay at Villa Roquette (plus as a newsletter reader you will get off-season prices at Villa Roquette at a special deal – ask me). We offer a free airport shuttle service and half price taxi service
Make a little time to chill and recharge – September and October are great months, the crowds are gone and the wine harvest gives a buzz to the region – come and have a break. In November we celebrate the new wine in every village, luckily the festivals are all on different days, so you can enjoy free drinks for several weeks
While we still have some blocks of time available in two of our apartments, think of staying with us for a month or more, get a fantastic deal on the accommodation and perhaps be with us for Christmas (Oysters and Champagne on the terrace as usual)
