Property in Pyrenees - A Guide to the Pyrenees

Pyrenees property covers just about every single kind of property that you could want to live in or own as a holiday home.

The actual area of the Pyrenees Orientales falls under the Languedoc Roussillon area and has a population which hovers around 400,000 people. Around 40% of the permanent population lives in and around Perpignan which is the areas principle town.

Forming a natural border between France and Spain the area has a warm coastal area where the population swells over the summer months and a cooler mountain area where people go to ski over the colder winter months.

Down on the Coast it is possible to buy good sized two bedroom apartments in popular resorts such as Port Leucate and Port Barcares for around €100,000. Expect these types of apartments to be in modern complexes with communal pools and good security. If you would like a beach type holiday home that you can also let out when you are not using it this part of the Languedoc is perfect.

If City Center living is your thing then head into the center of Perpignan. The city itself has every type of property on offer from small studio apartments through to large villas on the outskirts of the City which change hands for in excess of €1 million.

The ski resort of towns such as Les Angles is another popular area for foreign buyers and you can again buy apartments in modern complexes. As demand for holiday accommodation is so high in this part of the Pyrenees you can quite easily find new complexes where the developers will offer you a guaranteed rental return for a number of years.

Chocolate box ski chalets, the kind you find on postcards with roaring log fires and snow covered roofs can still be purchased in Les Angles for less than €200,000!

Getting to the Pyrenees Orientales has never been easier and you have the choice of flying into any of these airports: Perpignan, Carcassonne, Toulouse, Nimes, Girona, Montpellier and Barcelona.

As with the whole Languedoc area property in the Pyrenees can and does make both a fantastic investment and a superb place to live!
