One of the great assets of the Nord department is the extreme friendliness of its inhabitants. The proof of this is the number of festivities that are held there regularly; carnivals of all sorts, and of course, the Lille Braderie (annual flea market). So if the sun is a little shy here, the good cheer certainly makes up for it. To this should be added the wonderful Flemish architectural heritage and the long beaches of the Opal Coast. Property in Nord is well priced and properties for sale are many and varied: building land, shops, apartments, houses... There is plenty of choice: an apartment in Lille, a town house in Cambrai, or a country house near Valenciennes. What joy, in the evening, to have mussels and chips in the Grand'Place in Lille.
