French mortgage for property in Champagne-Ardenne
A name known throughout the world, the Champagne-Ardenne region of France is as synonymous for its sparkling white wine as it is for the rolling hills and vineyards that help to produce it. Lying close to Paris the region is popular with Parisians who wish to have a ‘get-away’ French property amongst the deep forests, lakes and streams that abound in the area.
The Champagne-Ardenne region consists of four departments – the Ardennes, the Aube, the Marne and the Haute-Marne. It is bordered by Belgium (north), Lorraine (east), Franche-Comte and Burgundy (south) and Paris and Picardy (west).
If you are looking to obtain a French mortgage for a place in the region, then the sorts of properties that can be bought include relatively cheap farmhouses and good value traditional houses.
The city of Reims is the biggest city in the region and boasts many claims to fame. Of the sites, the Reims cathedral, the Palace of Tau and the Reims basilica are all now listed as UNESCO world heritage sites. It is a popular city, especially for second-home owners from Belgium and Holland.
