Property for sale (houses and apartments) in or near to Nîmes, Languedoc, south of France

 

Like the rest of Languedoc, property for sale in and near Nimes has risen in value recently. The city of Nimes has gone through a renaissance in the past 10 years, with new modern buildings sprouting up (by architects such as Norman Foster and Philippe Starck) alongside the city's famous Roman ruins. The airport now boasts flights to the UK and Belgium, and the TGV line stops in the city.

Nimes is more interesting than neighbouring Montpellier - there's far more to see and do. The Roman arena and temple are world-famous, and some of the modern architecture here is quite groundbreaking and famous. But if you are looking for property for sale in Nimes, we feel compelled to tell you that the atmosphere and feel of the city isn't quite that of Montpellier. It's not quite as beautiful, and lacks Montpellier's huge pedestrian 'Ecusson' centre with its relaxed cafes and multi-cultural student population.

 

That said, if you're still keen on the idea of property for sale in Nimes itself, you'll find 3 types of property on offer. Apartments in older buildings are a great way to experience some of the old-world charm of Languedoc which giving yourself access to all the shops and restaurants that Nimes has to offer. These apartments often need renovating, an opportunity to add value! The second option would be to buy an entire town house in Nimes. Again, these will often need renovating, and you could always break one up into smaller apartments, as these always rent well to young professionals looking to live near their work. The third option in terms of property for sale in Nimes would be new, purpose-built apartments. Often, developers will sell these to you on a 'leaseback scheme' - guaranteeing to rent your apartment out most of the year on a guaranteed income to you. These are a good property investment if you're looking for something simple and maintenance-free.

 

If you're happy to look beyond Nimes for property for sale, then some of the areas around the city are lovely (although, we'd recommend you go out quite a bit, beyond the city's often-ugly suburbs!). Why not try some of Nimes' neighbouring towns and villages. Uzès is superb (but very expensive) - probably the most beautiful town in Languedoc, if not the south of France. Sommières is also wonderful, very lively with lots of good restaurants and cafes. Baucaire is also very pretty.

 

North of Nîmes is the Gardon river and the Pont du Gard. Property around here is very popular, with lots of modern villas with gardens and pools, as well as older houses in villages and even the odd farm houses waiting to be renovated. Remember that property in and around Nimes is in the Gard department, and so slightly higher than the Languedoc average due to being closer to Provence.

 

Transport connections here are excellent. Houses for sale around Nimes benefit from Nimes airport, great motorway connections to the north of France and the Cote d'Azur, as well as the TGV station at Avignon, for quick access to Paris, London or Barcelona.

 

If you don't find the property for sale in Nimes, France, that you were looking for, contact an estate agent in this area of Languedoc. They'll be happy to show you lots of properties in the area.
