The town of Caudabec played a major role since even before the 1300’s, and the town continued for centuries at the forefront of history in France, as a river town and with its proximity to the mighty Atlantic. Some of the impressive ramparts the old fortifications which protected Caudebec still remain and these two towers date from the 14th and 15th centuries. Its provenance went back and forth being claimed by both France and England over the ages, with Henry V seizing it in 1415. (France got it back though) It remains a gorgeous town, with its historic architecture.
With its advantageous position on the Seine, Caudebec en Caux was a prime target during World War II, and yet she was rebuilt & restored beautifully. This lovely, historic town now provides a super mix of modern & old, historic & new.

Even though the UK has now officially left the EU, as a UK citizen, you’ll still have the right to buy property in France as a non-EU citizen. You can even rent it out if you want to.
However, you will now need to make sure you have a long-stay visa if you plan to stay in France for more than 90 days at a time.

Unlike some other countries, France doesn’t have a ‘Golden Visa’ or other investment scheme for property purchases.
