French property Face-off: France profonde vs the south

For this week’s property face-off readers have the choice between a beautiful cottage in the Indre-et-Loire department in the central Centre-Val de Loire region and a charming stone house in the southern Gard department in the region of Southern Languedoc-Roussillon. The 107m2 cottage comes at a price of €240,750 ($301,000), making it a fair bit more expensive than the stone house, which boasts a surface of 160m2 for a mere €198,000 ($248,000). If you’ve got enough money saved up you could soon be relaxing in a charming cottage far off from the buzz of city life, or spend your time in an antique stone house set in the town square of a lovely village close to the Mediterranean sea.
