Buy-to-let properties in major French cities are proving to be worthwhile investments, according to one property expert.
Trisha Mason, managing director of the property consultants VEF, believes that one-bedroom apartments in major cities such as Lyon, Toulouse, Bordeaux and Montpellier could prove to be lucrative for Brits willing to invest.
Ms Mason said: "Buy-to-let properties in all of the major cities are all proving to be good investments. Apartments designed to attract young professional couples are in short supply as generally the interior design of such places lags behind what the market is currently requiring."
She also recommended the Haute Savoie – an area currently experiencing substantial capital growth – as a rival to the south of France when it comes to making returns on property investment.
The Association of International Property Professionals recently reported that 17 per cent of all foreign property purchased by Brits was in France.
