Running a French Holiday Gite in Rural Brittany

Rampaging french property prices near our Gite !

Part of the route when you're driving to our Brittany Holiday Gite takes you past a 'land for sale sign' in the nearby village.

I've always found the thought of building land for sale for €1 per square meter (60p or $1 or thereabouts) is quite amusing (compared to UK building land prices) so have included the sign in the driving directions.

Last time I was over in France though I noticed that the land has shot up in price to €6 per square meter this year.

Means I've had to spend several hours updating the travel directions with the new photo - several hours because we've got specific detailed directions from Calais, Boulogne, Dover, Rennes, St Malo, Lorient, etc - i.e. every single nearby French ferry-port and airport.
