cheap long term rentals franceIf you are moving to France in 2023 and you need to keep to a tight budget, then finding a cheap house to rent is going to be your No.1 concern. Especially if you are eventually looking to buy a house in France, you don't want to be eating into your pot of money paying the rent. 

This collection of 13 cheap long term rental properties in France under €700 per month won't break the bank and they will ensure that you can still live the dream in the South of France. 

When we first moved to France in 2006, we had carefully worked out our budget for the year. However, that was blown out of the water when we spent almost 5 months money in the first 8 weeks. So we know exactly what it is like to watch every penny.

The one thing that I would say though, is that there are cheap houses and there are cheap houses. We eventually rented an apartment in our village whilst we were building our house. The apartment had no outdoor space. I tell you what, those 9 months felt like 9 years. It wasn't actually the summer that was the problem (because you can always find places for a picnic or a cafe to hang out in). It was the winter. Man, that winter was really depressing. You realise that in the South of France, it is the weather during the winter months that is the real bonus. But if you cannot see the powder blue skies or feel the warming winter sun - then you may as well be back in Huddersfield or Limerick or Baltimore.

 

Cheap long term rentals France for 2023
