As part of a new series The Local France has lined up two very different dream homes in contrasting parts of France, but that have similar market prices. For the first edition of "French Property Face-off" it is Brittany versus Provence. Which home would you spend your money on?

Every year thousands of foreigners splash out on their ideal home in France, but choosing where to live and what kind of property to buy can be an agonizing decision.

Are you going to sell up and splash out out on a villa in Provence or a country house in Brittany? Or will it be a beach-side French Riviera apartment or a flat in the famed Marais district of Paris?

Of course not everyone gets the chance to turn their dreams into reality, so as part of our new series readers can get the chance to imagine – if only for a few moments – what it would be like to choose between French properties that are on the market. 

For the first edition of French Property Face-off we have lined up a 17th century converted olive mill in the Var department of picturesque Provence and a luxury home and its spacious grounds in the Côtes d’Armor department of northern Brittany.

Both properties cost in the region of around €500,000.

Take a closer look at the two properties in this gallery of images and in the final one, let us know which one would get your vote.
