Entire French village on sale for just £275,000
An entire French village has gone on sale for just £275,000 -- the same price as some one bedroom flats in London.
Consisting of 19 buildings including houses and a village hall, the village of Courbefy also boasts swimming pool, stables and tennis courts.
While it was once home to more than 200 people the village, in the region of Limousin, is now deserted after a downturn in the farming industry.
There had been plans to convert Courbefy into a holiday home, but it never materialised and the building are now over-grown and in a bad condition.
Courbefy was put up for auction by the Limoges judicial authorities last Monday, but nobody bids it will remain in the hands of Credit Agricole bank.
