    No, I prefer tranquil and continental. I love the food there, the people, the traditions, the ambience... I can't imagine finishing my life anywhere else.
    France is definitely a beautiful place, are you french yourself?

    Then what is the point of buying it?
    Well you can spend like 4 or 5 months there and the rest of the time you can holiday or something

    Pretty sure most people wont be able to save up the deposit for the first home, let alone a second one
    Well in somewhere like the Bahamas you can get a little villa for £100,000 or even much less. Prices are generally cheaper.

    Just pray for an economic crash and it will be a buyers market

    oh lool

    It's weird, I find it interesting and unusual that you would go there. I guess its because its so close to us and so we dont appreciate it as much

    Would you get a holiday home? Like in your 50s?

    If so, where and why?
    50's...what...hell no... i want to be able to fully retire by then but i would get a holiday home probably in my thirties or forties depending on if i how big i wanted it and if i was willing to get a restoration project or a ready to move into property that only needs to be furnished
    as for location i have a few places in mind such as italy or several locations in the usa i like such as somewhere moderately close to las vegas or somewhere in southern california or possibly somewhere in the bourbon area in kentucky/tennessee

    I thought 30s too but i thought one would be inclined to only holiday at one place. When you're younger you can do a lot of travelling and then after you can settle down

    No, I like going to different places each time I go away, I've no desire to go back to the same place more than twice because otherwise I'd get bored of it- I like visiting museums, historic buildings like castles, palaces and stately homes on holiday, but you only need to go to each one once. And its not like a house itself provides anything knew to do, especially for me I as I'm not a pool fan.
