If you’re looking to join the thousands of Brits who already have holiday homes in France, there’s never been a better time to enjoy all the pros of caravan ownership.
Millions of us visit the fabulous French countryside every year for a magical holiday experience. But what if you could visit whenever you liked and enjoy the company of others from around the globe who love the world’s favourite tourist destination as much as you do? If you’ve ever wondered about owning your own holiday home that’s just one of the reasons why Brits are continuing to buy mobile homes in France.
If you’re on a budget, static caravans offer exceptional value for money. You’ll soon recoup your investment through the savings you make on booking and organising your annual holiday, and when you’re not in residence you can always rent it out for an additional income. With styles to suit every budget from luxury lodges to more basic models, you’re sure to find a static caravan that’s right for you.
You’re in a great location
Static caravan holiday homes also put all the best – and most expensive – areas of France within reach. You’ll pay a fraction of the cost of a bricks and mortar property while benefitting from access to incredible locations with all you need on-site and within easy access. Most holiday parks are near popular tourist towns and other attractions, and you’ll be within easy reach of shops, restaurants, markets and transport links.
A friendly community
Your park has a range of facilities that could include bars, restaurants, swimming pools, tennis courts and other leisure facilities. You’ll be part of a ready-made holiday community so you and your family can start to enjoy your relaxing holiday in a static caravan from the minute you arrive on-site. If you find the idea of integrating into a French community a little daunting, a holiday home is a great way to dip your toe in!
It’s easier than buying bricks and mortar
Even French people roll their eyes at French inheritance laws, so if you want to avoid these complicated forced heirship rules, buying a static caravan is a neat way to sidestep them. Another advantage of buying through a UK company is that you’ll pay for your caravan in sterling, making it easier to budget and meaning you don’t have to worry about fluctuating exchange rates and potential language difficulties. And because your leisure home is virtually maintenance-free you can start enjoying your time there without having to worry about painting and gardening. And you can lock up and leave when it’s time to go home, safe in the knowledge your home will be well looked after.
A first step
Whether you’re unsure about investing in a brick and mortar property or you’re thinking of relocating abroad but want to ease your way in gently, static caravans are the ideal choice. You can test out the lifestyle and start learning the language, and you can visit the region out of season so you can experience life at any time of year. A park home could be your next step to an amazing new life or the way to build wonderful family memories for years to come.
