Property for sale (houses and apartments) in Narbonne, Languedoc

 

Narbonne is a lovely area of Languedoc to search for property for sale. Smaller than Montpellier, and prettier than Beziers, it also benefits from the Canals de 'Robine' and 'Midi'. Property for sale in Narbonne, France, has been rising in price in the last few years, as in all of Languedoc. That said, property for sale in the Aude (Narbonne's department) is still slightly cheaper than in neighbouring Hérault.

If you're looking for property for sale in Narbonne, France, that is along the coastline, you might want to try the towns of Gruissan, Bages and Leucate. Gruissan boasts an old fortress on the top of a hill overlooking the sea, with a charming village stretching out beneath it. Bages is a small village on the etang (lagoon), very picturesque with a couple of good restaurants. Leucate is one of Languedoc's best beaches - slightly more hilly and green than most of Languedoc's coastal towns.

 

Generally, we'd steer clear of property for sale in Narbonne just beyond the city centre, as these areas are usually less pretty. Remember also that the supply of centre-city properties in a city such as Narbonne is not likely to increase dramatically due to zoning laws.

 

In the centre of Narbonne, property tends to be one of 3 types. Old town houses, with say 3-5 bedrooms, which should cost in the region of €250,000 - €400,000, depending on position and state of repair. These often offer the opportunity to renovate and add value to the property. Then there are apartments in these older buildings, again offering the opportunity to add value by renovating. You could, of course, buy an entire town house and break it up into smaller apartments to rent out. Small apartments rent very well in Narbonne, due to the high numbers of young professionals looking for accommodation near their city-centre jobs. The third option for property for sale in Narbonne would be purpose-built new apartments, where the developer may offer to rent your apartment out for you for a guaranteed income (leaseback scheme). These offer a good investment opportunity, with very little maintenance for you (although service charges can be high).

 

Our recommendation would be to move away from the coast when looking for property for sale near Narbonne, and instead search inland amongst the vines of the Minervois and Corbières. There are some really charming villages here - including Bize-Minervois, Pouzols-Minervois, Ventenac, St Marcel and Lagrasse. The property for sale here is away from the worst of the summer influx of tourists to Narbonne - and the countryside is absolutely gorgeous. You'll also be closer to all that wonderful wine, and if you're lucky, not far from the gorgeous Canal du Midi or Canal de la Robine.

 

Narbonne property for sale beyond the actual city tends to be either modern villas, which usually come with small gardens and perhaps a pool, or village houses, which can range in size from about 80m2 (2 bedrooms) perhaps with a small terrace, to large 'Maisons de Maitres' - which often come with small gardens. Clearly, these older properties for sale near Narbonne require more renovation and maintenance.

 

Again, the coastal regions of Languedoc near Narbonne are quite flat and often quite built-up with commercial centres. Some of the seaside towns are pretty (see above), but we'd steer clear of Narbonne Plage, St Pierre, Port La Nouvelle and areas just outside Narbonne city centre.

 

One other thing. The relatively low level of the land here means that property for sale in and around Narbonne, France, can sometimes suffer from flooding. Make sure you ask the owner or your estate agent whether the property has ever flooded.

 

If you don't find property for sale in Narbonne that meets your needs, then contact an estate agent who operates in the Narbonne area.
