Tight budget? We reveal the cheapest cities in which to buy in the Hexagon
With prices on the rise in most French cities, buyers are retreating to the countryside for bargains and holiday boltholes. But while the likes of Paris and Lyon are becoming increasingly unaffordable, city living is still within buyers’ reach – if they keep an open mind and broaden their search area.
So where should savvy investors spend their hard-earned cash?
Well, the cheapest city in which to snap up a property is Saint-Étienne in Rhône-Alpes at an attractive €1,348 per square metre.
Limoges, the capital of Limousin, is quite the catch too at €1,506 per square metre.
Nîmes in Occitanie is an equally strong contender with an average of €1, 533 per square metre.
Mulhouse in Alsace and the port city of Brest in Brittany complete the top five of France’s most affordable property markets at €1,621 and €1,887 per square metre respectively.
