Five stunning property destinations in south France

Here are five of them:

Bouches du Rhone

Taking its name from the mouth of the Rhone river, Bouches du Rhone is the most populous region of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region. Home to the iconic city of Marseille and Aix-en-Provence, it is no wonder that so many people live in the area: drawn by the Roman monuments and medieval churches, visitors come for the culture; buyers stay for the coast and warm Mediterranean climate.

Lourdes may only be a small market town, but its reputation for sightings of the Virgin Mary (called “Our Lady of Lourdes”) attracts visitors from around the world to experience the powers of its holy water and witness the town’s miraculous healings. With one of the highest concentration of hotels in France, the local market is ripe for buy-to-let investors, while holiday home hunters will find peace in the beautiful natural surroundings.

Located in the Midi-Pyrénées region in France’s southwest, Gers is one of the sunniest departments in the country. Indeed, Toulouse, Millau and Auch are the hottest cities in France, with over 300 days of sunlight every year. The rolling hills and quiet medieval villages make for a tranquil getaway for holiday home hunters looking away from the bustling beach – and a restful destination for expats looking to retire.
