A few years ago, French Property News conducted a survey among their readers. The question was: where would you prefer to live in France? Unsurprisingly, the most popular regions where readers were likely to buy were headed by Aquitaine, Poitou-Charentes and Languedoc-Roussillon. Besides, Brittany and Pays de la Loire were also in the Top 10.  

Of course, these regions are famously popular with British nationals and are already home to a fair few. What factors have helped them make the decision to move to these areas? Weather? Culture? Gastronomy? Is it the fact that property prices are more reasonable than in the UK? Or, most importantly, is it the figures that appeal? The number of British expats is already significant in some of these regions. 

However, since then, the number of French regions has changed: on January 1st, 2016, 22 regions became 18, including 5 overseas territories/départements. For example, Aquitaine became Nouvelle-Aquitaine, thus merging the former regions of Aquitaine, Limousin and Poitou-Charentes together.
