Village for sale in France at bargain price
Property developers looking to buy a French property to develop have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to buy an entire village for less than the cost of a one bed flat in central London.
The deserted village of Courbefy, in central France, is on the market for just £275,000. The ridiculously low price reflects the amount of work and investment needed to make the place habitable and put it back on the map.
The lot includes family homes, a village hall, tennis courts, stables and swimming pool and consists of 19 buildings in total. Just 35 years ago the village was home to around 200 people before families started to leave looking for work elsewhere.
Courbefy is located in the Limousin region of France, a short drive from Limoges a city that boasts excellent road and rail links to the centre of Paris.
This unique opportunity presents a gargantuan challenge for the serious developer determined to own a large chunk of real estate in France.
