I am looking to take a month long trip to the South of France next year basing in Marseilles and then going West to the Spanish border returning to Marseilles then going East to the Italian one. I am not interested in Nice, or Cannes etc
Whilst I am there, I am going to be looking for a small property to buy that is at least mostly restored for a holiday and in the future, maybe permanent. Old stone cottage type, not modern like an apartment. I am looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom with 1 bathroom, possibly a garden or outside space and that has an open air market, restaurants and shops nearby...
I am looking anywhere along the coastline in Launguedoc and Provence with a budget of about US$100,000 so I realize I wont get too close to the coast, but maybe within 30 minutes of the Med would be ok.
Whilst I am fairly familiar with the Northern areas of France, I dont know much about the South and would appreciate guidance from Travellerspoint community members as to small towns and villages in that area that might be worth a look
Any suggestions, referrals etc would be welcomed! Thanks!
