A complete village in France is on sale in the hamlet of Courbefy in the region of Limousin – it is going dirt cheap at only 225,000 pounds sterling.
The village that was once full of greenery and a source of pride and joy to its people is today a haunted neglected place and a mess of weeds and undergrowth. It boasts of a total of 19 buildings, a village hall, a swimming pool, stables and tennis courts.
It should be a big bargain to some because the price quoted would be far less when compared to any flat in any posh locality of a large metropolis.
It once used to be a happy and busting village of 200 families but, following poor harvest, the people moved out during the 1970s leaving the village deserted. Later, the owner made efforts to revive it in the 1990s through tourism but did not succeed.
If unsold, it would revert back to the Credit Agricole Bank.
