France, the first tourist destination in the world
France is the most visited country in the world, with over 84 million visitors in 2013, which represents up to 7.4% of GDP. Many consider France as the most beautiful country in the world. People come here for the country's history, its monuments, its culture, the beaches, the charm of many ancient cities, not to mention fashion and gastronomy.
Yet, the price of properties in France, despite a large increase over the period 1995-2007, remains affordable compared to other world destinations popular among international clients.
In addition, non-residents take advantage of tax benefits, such as an exemption of the tax that must be fulfilled by permanent residents.
