Buying property in France after Brexit
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.
