Description of Brittany
Following the recession, France was knee-deep in a rather lifeless economy and a housing market that left much to be desired. There were, however, one or two spots around the country where demand still remains high much of the year – major tourist hubs such as Brittany being a prime example. With its rich history, idyllic lifestyle and heavenly local produce, the region is often considered to be something of a much more affordable alternative to Italy’s famed Tuscany.
Blessed with the superb beaches at Côte d'Émeraude, Côte de Granit Rose and La Baule-Escoublac, the warm summers bring travellers to Brittany in huge droves. Short-term rental property demands are therefore always high, which somewhat makes up for the generally low rent yields across the area. Sometimes called "Little Britain", Brittany has a temperate climate similar to Cornwall. House hunters can expect rainfall but as a result can also enjoy lush, green scenery all year round.
