The French region of Dordogne is a favourite for expatriate buyers looking for property, according to local estate agents.
French Estate Agents said Black Perigord and Green Perigord regions are often favoured thanks to their natural beauty.
British expats in search of their own chateau could be in luck if they choose to settle in the Dordogne, as the region is home to ten per cent of all of France’s castles.
Not alone in their search for property, British expatriates have been joined by Irish and Dutch buyers hoping to take advantage of the area’s international travel links and natural surroundings.
Because France is so close to the UK, it remains a popular expatriate destination of choice.
Some Brits even commute to work by taking the improved rail connections between Paris and St Pancras.
