International Living Magazine has put France top of its Quality of Life Index, something which could make it even more popular among potential investors.
France was awarded top spot in the list ahead of other popular locations such as Australia and the US.
Eleanor O'Kane, editor of Living France magazine, believes that the lifestyle on offer combined with value for money property has contributed to the country's success.
"The most popular area at the moment is Creuse - department number 23 - in Limousin. This is because despite it being rural, it is easily accessible and the property is reasonably priced," she remarked.
The news comes after primelocation.com reported that, in November, they were experiencing similar levels of international property searches as before the economic crisis.
According to the property website, searches for international property in France took up 29 per cent of its total search volume that month with Spain the only country proving more popular.
