Published Last updated

There are 85,000 working vineyards in France, meaning that the dream of a picturesque winemaking home can be found almost anywhere in the country. We look at five examples of the properties available.

Known as a propriété viticole, a vineyard property or estate can be an opportunity for investment or to start a new livelihood, but they come with many responsibilities and often require significant outlays.

The price of vineyards varies considerably depending on their location. The most expensive are in the Champagne region, where a hectare of vines costs over €1m. The least expensive are in Occitanie, where the price per hectare is around €13,000.

This is of course in addition to the price of the property, its outbuildings and any wine making equipment on site.

Here we look at five relatively affordable propriétés viticoles around France.
