Emergency Exit

Sometimes I just think about selling up, packing family Clarke into the car and moving to a quiet little village in France and spending a year sauntering around markets, learning the lingo and having a jolly good time. I’m sure someone wrote a book about that? After the chaos of last week and the the impending political bartering the lure of French village life is even more attractive. But where to move… Bordeaux?

The opening next month of a new southwestern branch of France’s high-speed rail network — used by the Trains à Grande Vitesse (TGV) — has sparked steady growth in one of the country’s most alluring yet still undervalued property markets. Brexit be damned: here are opportunities that no Brit with escape in mind — and a nose for a good vintage — should ignore.

Lured by the prospect of a boom, Parisians are already flocking to the area to buy weekend homes. Other new residents have been relocating from terror threats, congestion and forbidding prices on the Côte d’Azur. Internet millionaires have been shopping for holiday homes in the vineyards. And the guidebook publisher Lonely Planet named Bordeaux its top city to visit for 2017.
