Charente property - some fine examples
I'm often reminded by my colleague Guy (MD of FrenchEntrée) that photos of lovely properties for sale are one of the best ways of attracting visitors to a website or blog. He should know as his website gets around 1.5 million page views every month!
People in the industry call it "property porn".
Sadly, as a buying agent, I find properties "to order" for my clients and I don't sell houses. This means that I don't have a regularly changing portfolio of houses to show off and will always struggle when it comes to ranking highly with the search engines.
This thought struck me recently as I was driving round with some clients and showing them some simply stunning Charentaise houses. Property in the Charente is amongst the finest in France, the local stone is creamy and particularly attractive in the sunshine, even in deepest winter.
So here's a small cross section of some of the houses that I have seen recently - hopefully it will give you a flavour of what you can expect if you are searching for a home here, these houses happen to be in the €300-500,000 range.
No confidences betrayed, all are being actively marketed (apart from the beautiful house above which has just gone under offer to a client of mine!).
And if it helps attract a few visitors to my blog then so much the better!
