If you’ve ever dreamt of a french property with a sea view, a home with a lake or a bolt-hole by the river to watch the world go by, here is a selection of properties that will offer some food for thought. 

 

A recent study from the University of Exeter has shown the full extent of the emotional and physical benefits of living by the water.  The perfect tonic to the scrabble of daily life, waterside properties hold particular appeal for people looking for an active retirement as living by the water encourages a more active lifestyle as well inspiring time to think and reflect.  Not to mention an ever changing view, plenty of wildlife to observe and a cooling place to dip your feet on a hot summers’ day.

 

We have selected some of our best waterside properties in France:  There’s a beautiful french property with a lake in the Dordogne, a village house in a popular Normandy seaside village, a house right on the banks of the River Vézere, a canoeing opportunity on the doorstep in the Languedoc, a lakeside house in Brittany and a beachfront apartment with stunning Mediterranean views.
