France has it all – wonderful beaches, spectacular countryside, some of the best food and wine, fabulous cities, culture and an enviable quality and pace of life. Many people dream about owning a house in France, and experts consider France’s property market to be strong and stable, so a safe place to invest.


Olympia London, 18 – 20 September 2015


The Telegraph reported recently that “French property is attracting huge interest from British buyers thanks to falling house prices, cheap long-term mortgages and favourable currency exchange rates”. With prices having fallen by as much as 25%, now could be the perfect time to think about buying in France according to editor of French Property News, Karen Tait; “indeed, prices across the Channel are now the lowest they’ve been since before the global recession. Add in great mortgage deals, with French rates at record low, and you have the perfect ingredients for buying a French property.”

The French Property Exhibition at Olympia Central on 18-20 September is a complete one-stop shop for anyone planning to buy a property in France. With a free seminar programme covering all you need to know about buying and living in France, and experts on hand to discuss your plans, it is the perfect place to go for information and inspiration!

Anyone who’s ever dreamt of buying a house in France will want to make the most of this opportunity to meet the experts. Joanna Leggett of Leggett Immobilier will be exhibiting at the show.  "Confidence among British buyers is strong at the moment; and realistic pricing is a major factor - there are some amazing bargains available right now."

The internet has made shopping for an overseas property a lot simpler in recent years, but nothing beats the personal touch and being able to discuss your aspirations face-to-face with an expert. From estate agents and property finders, to legal and financial advisers, they’ll be waiting to help you find your dream French home.
