French Property Face-off: Brittany versus Provence

Every year thousands of foreigners splash out on the 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 spend your hard-earned cash on a villa in Provence or a country house in Brittany? A beach-side Riviera apartment or a flat in the famed Marais district of Paris? Of course not everyone gets the chance to turn dream 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 properties in France. For the first in the series 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 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 then let us know in the comments section of the last slide which one would get your vote. Both properties are advertised on Leggett Immobilier
