One expert in the French real estate sector has stressed that the country's property market can have an "extremely healthy mid to long-term future".
Trevor Leggett, of Leggett Immobilier, explained that the best way to achieve this is to be cautious in the short term and adopt a "sensible view on pricing".
He stressed that both agents and owners in the nation need to be "realistic with their expectations and valuations".
Should this happen, Mr Leggett anticipates that the French property sector will remain one of the most attractive and healthy in Europe.
"In troubled times owners and investors seek 'safe havens' and they simply don't come more secure or enjoyable than France," he added.
The perception of France as a brand outside the country appears to be particularly strong at present, with a recent FutureBrand survey placing it among the top nations in the world in this regard.
It performed particularly well in terms of its heritage and culture, while it was 13th in the list of countries people would most like to live in.
