The French village of Courbefy, nestled in the Haute-Vienne in the Limousin countryside, has gone on sale for just 330,000 Euros.

For this price, you get 19 buildings, a swimming pool, a village hall, tennis courts and a swimming pool – all of which have been abandoned.

Buyers have until Friday to put in for the village, which is situated just under 30 miles from the city of Limoges, which has excellent rail and road links to Paris.

Villagers started to move out during the 1970s when the farming industry took a downturn and plans to turn it into a holiday village in the 1990s also failed.

Nearby, a chapel and ruins of a castle attest to a more prosperous past. It is said that in the Middle Ages it had a population of 2,000.

It is up for sale after the current owner went bankrupt and if it is not sold it will end up in the hands of the Credit Agricole bank.
