    Keyword and a selling ad word "Renovation" usually gets a buyer to buy an undesirable property.

    Worryingly that looks better than quite a few of the places my parents have been looking to buy in France... :S.

    Perhaps it's so cheap because it is only half a building?

    lol that or because from the picture it looks like a good storm will cause it to slide away.

    LOL :p

    Somehow I don't think it's my "imagination" that would be holding me back from that one.. probably more like the 200,000 Euros in structural engineering and rebuilding. ;)

    At least you'd save a bundle on going green, looks like there is already plenty of that.

    So a couple of bricks piled on top of one another with a few trees thrown in for good measure nowadays is called a "Cottage" in France?

    Heh. Reminds me of the book Freakonomics, where they dive into the jargon used by real estate agents. For instance:

    The best thing that could happen to that cottage is a bulldozer or a pound of C4 :D
