Golf in France - seeking out the value
Here's an interesting article from last weeks Daily Telegraph. It talks about buying a property on a golf course in France and says that golf is "taking off" over here.
As an avid golfer the article was of particular interest...we have a superb 18 hole championship course here in cognac and the area around it (St Brice) is one of the prettiest villages around.
In the article they talk about the excellent investment opportunities of one particular development in the Languedoc.
Prices start from €430,000 for a two bed apartment....that's when my eyes popped out of my head.
You may remember this post from earlier in the Summer. It's a new, architect designed, four bed house with pool and super gardens that lead down to the river charente....a Tiger Woods five iron from Cognac golf course and yours for well under €400,000.
A two bed apartment or a four bed house and pool with change to buy your own golf buggy, four new sets of Callaways and enough multi-coloured golf jumpers to keep even Ian Poulter happy....hmmm.
