The news could lead to a rise in the number of Rhone-Alpes property searches, with the well served by two international airports.

"France will always command the attention of British investors and those looking to purchase their first second home abroad," he added.

"It is the tourism capital of the world and routes into the country are becoming cheaper and easier so it will always remain a top draw."
