The neoclassical city of Bordeaux, on the Garonne river in south-western France, is becoming one of the most dynamic, exciting and forward-thinking French cities. This is mainly down to mayor Alain Juppé; locals were delighted that he was not selected as the conservative candidate for the 2017 French presidential election – so he could continue as mayor.
“He has completely revitalised the city,” says Rory Ramsden of luxury property agency Home Hunts. Over the last 10 years, Juppé has cleaned up the old façades, upgraded squares, pedestrianised boulevards, created a hi-tech public transport system and redeveloped the riverfront.
“The property scene here is hot, with the new train already having an effect on the market,” Ramsden says. “Many Parisians are moving down to Bordeaux and the city is pretty close to being a sellers’ market – probably the only city in France to be one.”
