We would be looking to buy inland, maybe in the Finistere or Cote d' amour area. We wouldn't be looking for a huge house, maybe something with a couple of bedrooms and about 1000 sq.mtrs of land. Although we don't have a fortune,we would be able, I think, to be mortgage free. Is there anyone who would like to share information about their costs of the buying process,and running costs for such a property? I'm only asking because we need to know if we can afford to live there before we enter into a new adventure.
I have lived in Spain, and in Bulgaria, of which the latter is cheaper to live but lacks any real social activities, it's rife with corruption and many areas are being taken over by gypsies, roma, and the infrastructure leaves a lot to be desired. I thank anyone who answers any of the questions I have asked... you have to ask, or you'll never find out, as they say. Thanks, Steven
Where are you and your partner from? Property taxes in France tend to be lower than in the UK, but utility bills can be quite high.
