Property in Ales - A Guide to Ales

We are currently marketing two exciting new developments, "Castel d'Uzege", Uzes, and Marina del Sol.

Ales property is going through a bit of a transformation and prices in this area of Lozere are generally on the up.

This probably reflects the fortunes of the whole area around Nimes which showed the largest capital growth for the whole of France in 2004. The area achieved 38.1% growth for the period of October 2003 –October 2004.

At the time of writing this there is a new development of luxury apartments being constructed which will bring a new level of security and luxury to the town of Ales. A selection of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, all with their own private terraces are due for completion in April 2008.

These luxury properties in Ales will be set in their own landscaped park area and are close to all the shops, restaurants and transport facilities in Ales, all apartments will have a parking space. Prices start at €168,000.

Ales is a fair size town with a population approaching 40,000 people. For 100’s of years the town had relied on the coal industry for its main source of economic stability but this all came to an end in 1986. It’s most famous son is Laurent Blanc, the retired French football captain.

Since then a whole host of industries have been introduced including the technology sector and of course tourism.

Ales is known as the gateway to the Cevennes national park and from here you can easily indulge in a whole host of sporting activities. Cycling, climbing, gliding, horse-riding and over 100 kms of cross country ski routes (winter only) will keep you fit and busy.

Ales property Investment

Ales is an interesting proposition for buying a property, prices aren’t high but they aren’t’ cheap either. In its favor is it’s proximately to the airports at Nimes is just 45kms (Nimes Properties are also worth considering) and Montpellier (68 kms). This keep Ales in the “weekend holiday home” market unlike other parts of the Lozere area.
