If you’re looking for a way to escape the commute and the office job, or if you're retiring but would like to maintain an income, a gîte business in France might present the perfect opportunity.

 

As we are in the transition period following Brexit, the full rights and freedom of movement are still available to British citizens wanting to move to Europe.  Of course it will be possible to move to France after December, but the amount of paperwork required will be hotly negotiated in Brussels over the coming months.  For those wanting to make the move, doing so this year is likely to make the process more straightforward.  

 

France is the most popular holiday destination in the world, welcoming around 80 million tourists a year so there’s plenty of scope to tap into the demand.  When considering what sort of income a property might produce, a useful figure to bear in mind is that in general, and obviously dependent on the condition of the property and the enthusiasm with marketing, but the income generated by a property is often around 10% per year of the value of the property.
