Brittany's just over there... (a relaxing 'cruise' on Brittany Ferries will get you to St Malo overnight... Dieppe is just 4 hours and Caen is 6 hours) the natives are friendly (my neighbour's dad has been eternally delighted to be liberated by my dad and and his comrades in 1944/5... and they seem even to admire that les Anglais have voted to leave Europe... I think many of them wish they had had the opportunity too... In fact I think they might... who knows what the French elections this coming May will present us with. And having visited France a good number of times (and Brittany several hundred) I can honestly say that a majority of Bretons do not regard themselves as true French but Bretons first and French second. And long ago there was a Celtic and Gallic infusion from Cornwall, Wales and Ireland which means we are all brethren!
But more seriously the prices, which have always looked ridiculously low by comparison to those in the UK, are falling further as vendors realise that they are not likely to get their ideal price whilst things are the way they are. And so they are reducing their asking prices when there have been fewer takers of the bait found on any of the many property websites that abound.
Take this one for example... admittedly still not in the 'small change from your pocket' league... But, with 12 bedrooms in total on 7 Hectare of mixed land, it is a head banging bargain for anyone fed up with life in the UK who wants to venture out into the Leisure, Equestrian, Holiday, BandB, Chambres d'Hotes market or to just pootle around whilst cutting wood for the log burner in winter - or mowing the 7 hectares - why not introduce the French to 'Pick Your Own'... 'Le Car Boot' or just rent out as Gites in the Spring and Summer. An 8 bedroomed Manor House plus a Four Bedroomed Farmhouse all on 7 Hectares of woodland, pasture, garden and parc... is one where there is a human story responsible for the perrennially falling asking price...
A musician who enjoyed life in Brittany between touring stints had bad news about his health and can no longer work or even comfortably travel to this idyllic hideaway... But you can. The property, which originally floated on the market at 650,000 Euros, is now available for just 300,000 Euros. Not just well worth the money but something of a giveaway...
