Home sweet home

The most common housing here is the service flat which existed since the 60s. Service flats are originally offered to soldiers in line with their services; that explains the dull design :D . One flat (2 bedrooms) will fetch between Euro 32k and Euro 40k. Of course, there are much fancier apartments available. Strangely, the prices are not much different.

Next, the landed properties (1 floor terrace) - cost just slightly higher approx. from Euro 48k but would require major renovation works. Such type of housing are popular among foreigners looking to retire here.


Finally, we are not free from ghetto areas. These areas are "gated" and hidden from the outside world. Inside , you'll see small shelters built near to each other. I don't know if theres any future plans for such areas. Hopefully, the town will relocate the residents to area with better infrastructures.

That is very inexpensive. Maybe why foreigners come to retire?
Nice row of bungalows. We have ghettos and slums in Paris too - every city must have them, I suppose.
