This book provides a straight-forward and easy to read guide to the pros and cons of buying a property in France. All of the information is available for free on the internet, but this is a lot easier way of finding it!
Some of the sections could do with being written in greater depth. However, each offers a broad range of information which can then be used as a basis for further reasearch.
The book is well laid-out in logical sections and has a number of useful appendices.
Buy this book before you consider others.

This covered everything you need to know to move to France. Put in a clear way so that you felt the information was valid . Pleased I bought this book . - Ms. D. Slater, Amazon

I"m planning to move to France ASAP and I have several other books on the subject but I find that this book is filled with details that the other books lack although they're all very interesting and informative. Very well written and I wish Hampshire
would write a newer version of this excellent book.
