Are you looking to buy a property in Aude? You won't be disappointed! Nestled between the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean Sea, in the former region of Languedoc Roussillon (now part of Occitania), Aude is a department known for its historical heritage, its varied landscapes and its gentle way of life. With its direct proximity to the sea, the mountains and Spain, its singing accent and its generous gastronomy, the department is attracting more and more individuals who come to look for the house of their dreams in the south of the France.

To help you with your purchase project, we will detail here the offer, the prices per square meter and the market trends in the Aude!

The real estate market in the Aude

The Aude is endowed with pretty coastal towns with beautiful beaches, charming villages nestled in the mountains and dynamic cities such as Narbonne or Carcassonne, all places that attract more and more individuals looking for a house in the sun, without rubbing shoulders with the property prices of the neighbouring regions.

Indeed, despite its location and its assets, Occitanie still benefits very advantageous prices for the south of the France!

The real estate market, which is popular above all with buyers looking for a second home or a house to change their lifestyle or retire, is mainly composed of:

  • Country houses and estates
  • Villas with swimming pool
  • Provençal bastides and renovated farmhouses
  • Village houses

The price per m2 in the Aude

Much lower than in neighbouring regions (PACA in the east and Nouvelle-Aquitaine in the west), prices in Languedoc Roussillon, and more particularly in Aude, are very close to the national average. In 2024, the average price per square meter for a house in Aude is €2000 and €2200 for an apartment.

The highest prices are:

  • on the coast, in cities such as Gruissan (3500€/m2), Leucate (3000€/m2) or Port-la-Nouvelle (2500€) /m2)
  • in the region of Narbonne (largest commune in the Aude, 2500€/m2)
  • and in historic villages such as Lagrasse (2200€/m2) or Albières (2000€/m2)

The cheapest prices are in the Pyrenees, in the south of the department, with an average of 1000€/m2.

Evolution of property prices in the Aude

The real estate market has remained very stable over the last 10 years in Aude, until 2021 when, in the context of a pandemic, the price per square meter increased drastically. After experiencing a brief drop in the summer of 2023, prices rose again until the end of the year when, following the national trend, they began to fall.

In 2024, the price of real estate shows a slight decrease, be careful however, as everywhere, the price drop does not concern all properties! The market is actually a multitude of small markets, divided according to location or type of property, and not all of them are necessarily impacted by the crisis!

In summary: an affordable and profitable region

In conclusion, the Aude, with its privileged setting, continues to represent an attractive market for many buyers, whether they are looking for a primary or secondary residence. Despite a slight drop in prices observed in 2024, the department remains an investment of choice thanks to its unrivalled quality of life and relatively affordable prices compared to other listed regions. The diversity of properties available, ranging from country farmhouses to beachfront villas, as well as more eco-friendly options, offer opportunities for all tastes and budgets.
