The department of Lot et Garonne in Aquitaine has many small yet lively villages and this department in the south of France is a real find for both nature and culture lovers.
One of Lot et Garonne’s assets are the views afforded by the properties over the Garonne or the Lot lush countryside with woodland and lots of leisure activities. The residents have invested well with most of them living in detached houses that are their principal residences. There are however lots of holiday or second homes to choose from.
Compared to the more expensive Perigord or Gers, the Lot et Garonne still holds some bargain French property buys. Perhaps a village home or a traditional stone house in a green environment is what you are looking for, if so, this area is the perfect place to invest in a second home.
Stripping out the usual fluctuations, the housing market in the region has been steadier than most. Long term investments may offer a good return in the future as the Lot-et-Garonne is increasingly appealing amongst foreign purchasers, just like the whole of the region of Aquitaine.
