Diverse, multilingual and timelessly beautiful - why having a holiday home in Belgium or France is worthwhile

Did you know that France is the world’s most popular travel destination? If you look closely, this is not particularly surprising - French cities such as Paris and Cannes, the Atlantic coast, Corsica and the overall quality of life in France always make for a good time.

Even its neighbour, Belgium, is no longer an insider tip. Cosmopolitan Brussels and fabulous Bruges are remarkable places of interest, the language diversity makes travel easy on international visitors, and the Belgian coast nicely rounds off your Belgian holiday experience.

Find out why it is worthwhile investing in a holiday home in these two countries!

Holiday in the south of France: much more than just lavender

Anyone who has ever been there will look back fondly on his holiday in the south of France. The lovely beaches, the fantastic cuisine and the savoir vivre will tempt you to pack up your bags and move to France permanently. But France has many more interesting places besides Provence and the Côte d’Azur. The Way of Saint James pilgrim route, for example, is attracting more and more visitors all the time, and the cultural life in the capital city of Paris is constantly reinventing itself. Or have you ever heard of the Hall Saint-Pierre, an art gallery cum bookstore cum cafe, which is only a few minutes’ walk from Sacré-Coeur? As France will be hosting the Olympic Games in 2024, the country will see various innovations and developments in the lead-up to this event, from which both the French themselves and foreign visitors will benefit.

Having your own property in France will allow you to discover the best places in France under your own steam. Insider tip: the village of Estaing, including its historic 13th century castle. Despite its small size, the village along the Way of Saint James offers an abundance of fascinating details that make a visit worthwhile.

Owning a holiday home in Provence will also allow you to explore the various regions in France and enjoy the beauty of the French Mediterranean coast. A holiday apartment in Paris could become your easily accessible second home for new cultural and culinary experiences.

Discover holiday destinations in Belgium

Do you prefer travelling at a somewhat slower pace and shifting down a gear or two in your free time? Then you should consider a holiday in Belgium! A holiday home in Belgium could be your getaway from where you can reach both the Belgian coast and the medieval historical monuments in Bruges or Brussels within one day. Belgium is worth more than one trip, as regions such as Namur with its old town centres and opportunities for placid waterfront strolls are only just up-and-coming. The language diversity in Belgium (Dutch, French and German) makes travel easy on international visitors.
