7 things to consider before buying in a French village

This is good for anyone who is considering moving to France. There are seven things outlined and discussed here. These things should be considered before making the move. Changing your country of residence is a serious decision that should never be taken lightly. Having information can help.

Key Takeaways:

  • Access, or lack of it, should be a major consideration.
  • It’s worth getting the full facts on the taxe d’habitation and taxe foncière; don’t assume it won’t be much for a village property.
  • Daylight can be a problem, and it can be hard on a first visit to check how much light the rooms and outside terraces receive throughout the day, and year round.

“Within a property, measure the width of narrow hallways and staircases before you buy furniture or appliances.”
