Fancy an overseas mortgage? France is the choice of the celebs
If you are contemplating an overseas mortgage, France could well be your top choice and you would not be alone in that decision. As well as being the top destination for British expats looking at a mortgage abroad, a property in France was chosen by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as the location for their latest love nest.
With a £35 million chateau in beautiful Provence, the couple have got what for many will remain as a dream home. Despite its 1,000 acres, moat, lake and swimming pool, the couple are now looking to buy even more land for their home so they can incorporate their very own airport into the grounds for easy travelling.
For an overseas mortgage, France is the destination of choice
With 35 bedrooms, the 17th century mansion is to be renovated to include Jacuzzis, a steam room and spa, a new gym and a wine cellar, no doubt to hold wines produced from their very own vineyard. Tighter security measures are also to be added to the building to ensure that it remains a retreat away from their budding fans.
For other French property buyers without the budget of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, more average sized three or four bedroom homes can be found in Provence for a more affordable €300,000. With plenty of airlines flying daily to Provence from Marseille Provence airport, unlike Brad and Angelina, you don’t need an airport in your back garden to commute to and from your UK home.
If however you fancy recreating some of the luxury that Brangelina have fashioned on their French home, there are several chateaux in Provence for sale which possibly come with enough land for a helipad or two.
A 12 bedroom chateau with two swimming pools, a sauna, several outbuildings and its own forest is on sale for a mere €8,000,000. Another chateau is on sale for €4,350,000 and comes with a guest house, Caretaker’s lodge, tennis court, swimming pool and two acres of land.
With its Mediterranean climate and beautiful countryside, it’s easy to see why celebrities like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have decided to invest their mortgages for overseas here.
