British buyers are still keen on picking up property in France, not least those who move for lifestyle reasons, it has been suggested.
The Daily Mail reported on the case of Tracy Harris and Frank Maximillian, who left London for the Brittany village of Evran despite the recent fall in the value of the pound against the euro.
Ms Harris told the paper that "life is simpler, safer and calmer" in France and said they were not financially worse off than when they were living in England.
The new provider stated that the cost of living in France can be a third less than the UK, pointing to local government levies being up to 90 per cent lower than council tax and the absence of any road tax.
Brittany was recently listed by the Times as an area of France that remains popular with UK buyers.
Others listed by the paper included Normandy, the Dordogne and the Cote D'Azur.
