Britons willing to do some renovation could find plenty of affordable properties in France, it has been suggested.
Expat magazine Shelter Offshore noted a number of examples where houses in need of work could be had for as little as €50,000 (£44,600).
Among these were a two-bedroom home in Brittany and stone cottage in the mid-Pyrenees, with the website noting that the latter property - which needs a full restoration - is located in a "stunning position in half an acre of garden on the edge of a tiny hamlet".
For €65,000 buyers could get a house near Chateauponsac in Limousin, which is accessible to the airport at Limoges and could be turned into a bed and breakfast establishment.
Last month, Shelter Offshore's director Rhiannon Davies said many Britons are keen on a French rural property in a place offering "the best balance between escapism and finding great weather, a fantastic lifestyle and an affordable cost of living".
