Would you prefer a converted mill in the Vendée or a renovated barn in the Limousin region of France? Take a look at these two very different revamped properties in France that are on the market and decide what would you rather spend your money on.

When it comes to buying property in France, there are endless alternatives, but many people love to buy an old property and renovate it.

For this week's French property Face-off, readers have the difficult choice between two unusual properties, a converted mill near the coast of Western France for a bargain €130,800 ($166,000), or a more expensive but also much larger barn conversion in the Limousin region of central France for €375,000 ($477,000).

The mill could be used as a private romantic get-away, or rented out to tourists wanting to make their stay in France a little more unique.

With enough space to put up a huge family, the barn offers lots of possibilities too. You could turn it into a Bed & Breakfast or get a couple of farm animals to make use of the many hectares of land. 

Take a look through the gallery of images and see which one you would rather get your hands on, money permitting of course.
