These are perfect for those looking for coastal living at an affordable price

This house overlooks the sea in a protected coastal area of Plouhinec (Morbihan) Pic: IAD France

Mainland France boasts four distinct coastlines – the North Sea, English Channel, Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean – spanning an impressive 3,427km.

This means there is ample opportunity to find a home with a ‘vue mer’ and best of all, it does not have to cost you the earth (or sea).

 The Connexion has picked out five coastal properties for sale for less than €500,000.
