Burton On Trent, United Kingdom (PressExposure) November 24, 2009 -- A recent survey by mortgage company Conti has revealed that France is still the most popular destination for a holiday home abroad, with 31% of those surveyed looking online for a place there.
And itâs little wonder with its fast road, rail and air links with the UK, stunning rural countryside, medieval towns, better weather and gourmet foods and wines.
Itâs also possible to snap up great property bargains even in the current economic climate, especially in the leisure homes markets where high spec, UK made mobile homes are available for as little as Â£20,000.
Buying a mobile home or lodge usually comes with a host of other benefits such as being situated in a holiday park with full use of the pool, bar and leisure facilities and 24 hour security.
For example, at Parc Mayenne in the Upper Loire Valley, 31 acres of beautiful pastureland with the River Mayenne running through it create a stunning rural retreat. The park is accessible all year round and all 150 homes are privately owned on large plots with space for decking, gardens and parking.
There is a heated outdoor pool, sun terrace and the well-stocked fishing lakes offer excellent carp fishing which complements the trout and pike fishing to be enjoyed in the river. The Kingfisher bar offers the chance to meet up with other owners and serves freshly cooked meals on request.
There is also a Laundry room, cleaning and gardening services, a local golf course and pets are welcome.
