It’s Provence…without the high prices or masses of tourists. The Languedoc region of southern France may not be as well-known as its neighbor, but it has a similar pleasant climate, lifestyle, and geography.
There are stunning Mediterranean beaches and low-key seaside towns, charming hilltop medieval villages (where you can snag a historic “character” home to be restored or already renovated), and farmland (country home, anyone?)…highly regarded wineries (many varietals are grown, but it’s the biggest producer of rosé wines). Plus, there are expansive forests, as well as mountains and steep canyons ready to be explored.
With what’s said to be an average of 300 days of sun per year…you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy it all.
Thanks to all it offers—and the affordability of real estate and lower cost of living—the Languedoc (which is officially part of the Occitanie region) has become popular with British expats. And many French second-home owners have a place here.
In the Languedoc, you can get more house for your money, as the saying goes, than in Provence. This two-bedroom home certainly fits the trend. It’s a stone barn that’s been converted. And it’s sold furnished. The home, set on three acres, overlooks the historic village of Cessenon-sur-Orb and is a few minutes’ walk from the beach along the Orb River.
