Best time to invest in the Languedoc-Roussillon | Sextant New build - Find new Build properties and Leaseback in France

This is the Best time to invest in the Languedoc

With 15 million tourists each year, the Languedoc-Roussillon is a beautiful region in the south of France. A few years ago, only the Cote d’Azur was prized by buyers and tourists. However, this trend is changing and moving to the Languedoc area, which is well appreciated by workers and retired people. Situated between Spain and Provence, the Languedoc Roussillon is split in five departments: Aude, Gard, Herault, Lozere and Pyrenees Orientales.  With 300 Sunny days a year, the Languedoc Roussillon area is now one of the most popular areas of France as it is the fourth touristic destination of the country.
Here are some numbers regarding the Languedoc Roussillon area:
•    1st French area for open-air hotels.
•    2nd French area for holiday homes in residence.
•    4th Touristic French area, after Provence Cote d’Azur, Rhones-Alps and Ile de France.
•    15 million tourists each year.
Integrated in a project linking Spain, France and Italy, the Languedoc Roussillon has developed the Mediterranean South Europe LGV (high speed railway) project. Due in 2015-2020, this great achievement will definitely revitalize the area. Languedoc Roussillon is also well served in terms of airports as there are five main commercial airports- in Beziers, Carcassonne, Montpellier, Nimes and Perpignan. At the end of the building of the Mediterranean South Europe LGV, Paris will be easily linked to Madrid via Barcelona.  Consequently, this large European axis will be a huge benefit for the whole continent. Montpellier will be only 3 hours away from Paris. (Currently Marseille is also 3 hours away from Paris). But one of the major objectives of this project is a strong development of rail freight in order to decongest the French motorway network, mainly along the Rhone Valley.  Moreover, the travel times between French and Spanish cities will be reduced by half.  The future TGV will serve eight cities in Catalonia and the south of France: Barcelone, Béziers, Figueras, Gérone, Montpellier, Narbonne, Perpignan, and Toulouse. Thus the lettings market, which is already quite important, will be consistent in the coming years.
Attractive for touristic activities, the area is also important in term of employment. The Languedoc Roussillon is the second French region for growth in employment. Various sectors are represented in the area like construction, trade or personal services and multinationals choosing to set up their offices like IBM, Dell or Sanofi-Aventis. Regarding agriculture, the sector has always been rewarding as it is ranked as the first in France and boasts the largest vineyard area in the world with well known rosés such as Cotes du Roussillon, Corbieres or Saint Chinian. The area is also well known for the quality of its cuisine. Traditional dishes are based on olive oil, honey, cheeses and wines. The Mediterranean-influenced cuisine includes brandade de morue, encornets farcis and cassoulet.
The Languedoc Roussillon area benefits from numerous tourist attractions thanks to its important cultural and historical heritage. The evolution of the Languedoc Roussillon’s coastline is linked to the renovation of the area. In the sixties, the French government created major regional development projects involving tourism and equipments. Legislations have been introduced to assist in the respect of the coastline and the mountain.  The coastline offers amazing resorts with beautiful sandy beaches and marinas in Port-Camargue, La Grande Motte, Gruissan, Saint Cyprien or Port Barcares, all rewarded by the Blue Flag  the award given to beaches and marinas regarding the environment (“pavillon Bleu”). Some of them offer traditional fishing ports like in Sete or Collioure where it is possible to buy fish and shellfish directly when the boats came back from fishing in the morning. Also, with 30,000 mooring rings and 27 marinas, the Languedoc Roussillon opens on the Mediterranean Sea, Europe and Africa.

Thus, if you are looking for an investment in an area of France, Languedoc Roussillon is the new favourite FRENCH region. Linked to all the major developments, new real estate projects are constantly arising. Just 10 km away from Montpellier, Juvignac is ideally located between Nimes and Beziers.
