Want To Live Here? Want To Make $5,000?
That’s right, a beautiful area in France wants you to live there – so much so they are willing to pay you to do it!
France’s Gorgeous Aisne Region!
As you can see from this map, which The Daily Mail published, the region isn’t that far from Paris, and the pictures they shared of that region shows a gorgeous countryside…
As The Daily Mail reports:
“Prospective home owners seeking a property in one historical French region can expect to be paid €5,000 for their relocation.
Buyers looking to purchase a home in Aisne which lies in the Hauts-de-France region of the country, formerly known as Picardie, will be offered the large sum of money for every property they buy.
It is hoped the scheme, which was created by 40 municipalities in Aisne, will breathe a new lease of life to the now sparsely populated area and help rejuvenate the area’s old buildings.”
There are just a few caveats, by the way – the biggest one being that you are going to actually have to live there!
Still, if beautiful estates like this are for sale, it’s worth considering! The Daily Mail goes on to report:
Buyers will also need to make sure that the home they seek to purchase has been on sale for at least three years and also confirm that they will remain in the property for at least five years.
If the prospective owner chooses to leave the house before the five years is over then they must pay back €1,000 for every year that the house remains unoccupied.
President of the communes for Pays de la Serre, Pierre-Jean Verzelen, told Le Parisien: ‘We have carried out a study that has led us to the conclusion that many of these houses have been empty for a long time.’

It reminded me of a recent post I shared with some other ideas for “getting away from it all”:
Yes, how about an island paradise? You can buy one, and here they are, take a look:
