How do I find a place to live in Dordogne?

We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered:

"Finding a place to live in Dordogne, involves several steps. First, you need to determine your budget and the type of accommodation you're looking for. This could range from a small apartment to a large house, depending on your needs and financial situation. Next, you should research the different areas in Dordogne to find a location that suits your lifestyle and preferences. Some people might prefer a quiet, rural setting, while others might want to be in the heart of a bustling town. Once you have a clear idea of what you're looking for, you can start your search. There are several online platforms where you can find listings for rentals and properties for sale in Dordogne, such as Rightmove, French-Property.com, and Green-Acres.fr. These websites allow you to filter your search based on location, property type, price, and other factors. In addition to online listings, you might also want to consider working with a real estate agent. An agent can provide valuable insight into the local market, help you negotiate prices, and guide you through the process of buying or renting a property in France. When you find a property that you're interested in, it's important to visit it in person before making a decision. This will give you a chance to inspect the property, get a feel for the neighborhood, and ask any questions you might have. Finally, once you've found the perfect place, you'll need to secure it. This usually involves signing a lease or purchase agreement and paying a deposit or down payment. If you're not fluent in French, you might want to hire a translator to help you understand the terms of the agreement. Remember, finding a place to live in Dordogne can take time, so it's important to be patient and persistent. With a bit of research and preparation, you'll be able to find a home that's perfect for you," said one person in Dordogne.
