The latest news from Languedoc-Roussillon, South of France - January 2013

Reduced Price Properties - Interesting opportunity! - Featured Property - Languedoc-Roussillon has it all - French mortgage rates lowest since WW2 - Truffles

Bienvenue !

Winter in the South of France is mild, with blue skies and sunshine and while we think about putting the heating on, our thoughts turn to the many opportunities for a fabulous, low cost skiing holiday in the Languedoc-Roussillon. We are also including an article on truffles, the most expensive food in the world, as they are now being harvested from the soil around the Mediterranean and sold all over the world.

As usual, we have a featured property and some recently reduced price properties as well as an opportunity to buy a lovely Mas with beautiful views and excellent value for money! With French mortgages being offered at interest rates at an all time low, not seen since the end of the Second World War, and house prices probably at their lowest, now more than ever is a great time to invest in property in the South of France.
