France still Brits&’039 favourite overseas property location

Spain and France remain the firm favourites for those seeking to buy a place abroad, according to the latest Property Hotspots Report from currency firm HiFX.

France tops the list, with 35% of buyers looking to own a property across the Channel.

Mark Bodega, director at HiFX, said: “France remains a ‘safe bet’ for Brits. It goes without saying that the sun and lifestyle are a big pull but buyers are now also able to get better value for their money and take advantage of the weakening euro.
