Three properties in France, all of which I will take!
First up:Gasgony. An hour from Tarbes airport near Aignan, West Gers, this is a recently restored farmhouse with pool, hot tub, tennis court and gardens sweeping down to an ancient oak wood. It’s a shame there are only three bedrooms. Yours for €335,000 (£277,700 or $432,317).
Second:Paris. You couldn’t be more central than this €164,000 (£136,000 or $211,641) studio in Le Marais, just around the corner from the Pompidou Centre. Inside it is surprisingly spacious with exposed stone walls and ceiling beams.
Dordogne. This three-bed stone manor house near Sarlat has a roof in need of major surgery and decor which needs to be rescued from the 1960s. Then there are the un-renovated outbuildings … It could be a pricey project unless you are DIY-confident, but you get 17 acres close to a pretty bastide village. Cost: €486,000 (£403,000 or $627,182).
Which will it be? No. 1? No. 2? Or No. 3?
