Reduced Price Properties - Featured Properties - New Rates for Captital Gains Tax - Musée Lodève Van Rysselberghe exhibition - Wine Review La Colombette Béziers

Bienvenue !

Although it still feels like summer, we are reminded that Autumn is just around the corner. The grape harvest is in full swing and soon the vines will turn red and golden. That said, the weather usually stays warm and sunny all the way through to January, with the evenings getting cooler as the weeks go by.

In this edition we are featuring a wonderful exhibition of paintings by Théo Van Rysselberghe at the Musée de Lodève. Much of his work still remains in private collections and is rarely seen, so grab this chance to see 'pointillism' at its best. We have included an article on the recent change in Capital Gains tax in France for properties that are not your main residence and a review of the innovative Domaine de Colombette near Béziers.

As always, please take a look at our featured and reduced price properties - there are some real bargains to be had at the moment!
