Buying a dream property in
How to check if a property in France is in a flooding area?
It is advisable to check with the local mairie to see if the property is in a flooding area. You can also ask in the neighbourhood if they have had floods in the last 10 years.
Here is how you would ask in French:
Est-ce que cette maison est située dans une zone innondable ?
When we bought our property in
It was reassuring! Of course it can happen but at least it is not a yearly problem!
Having had a whole week (day and night) of rain, Dinan area is suffering from floods at the moment. The river Rance has broken its banks and created chaos! A few villages are under water (St André des Eaux, Jugon les Lacs) and many roads are closed.
