Top 3 reasons to buy a mobile home in France

Caravans in the Sun

When asked about why they opted for a mobile home as opposed to a traditional property, buyers have mentioned these main 3 reasons:

  • Value for money: mobile homes have evolved. Today they offer all the equipment and comfort that you find from a regular holiday property but at a fraction of the cost.

  • Transportable: when you've owned your holiday home you are not restricted to the location as in a traditional property. If at any point you wish to relocate to another area you can find a new spot and take your home with you.

  • Onsite facilities: Many of the sites have additional perks like swimming pools, restaurants, children playgrounds and security.

    We put together a few examples of what you can get for your money.


    With pre-owned mobile homes starting from as little as £5,995 sited in the Vendee region and brand new sited mobile homes starting from as little as £16,995 in the Pas-de-Calais region, buying a leisure home in France seems a lot easier and affordable than ever before.


    If you are prefer to buy new, the this one in Northern France model Willerby Magnum starts at £16,995.
