Many house hunters are still keen on buying homes in Europe despite the eurozone crisis, with French property topping the list of the most popular among people in the UK.

According to the HiFX Property Hotspots report, around one in four prospective buyers (23%) are trying to buy something across the English Channel.

Tax increases on houses in France have done little to deter people, as the country remains top of the list as voted by adults living in the UK.

The second most popular country is Spain, targeted by a fifth of property hunters (19%).

Among the more experienced buyers considering purchasing another property, Spain is less popular but around one in 10 of them (9%) would still look to the Mediterranean nation.

HiFX director Mark Bodega said: "France remains a safe bet for Brits. It goes without saying that the sun and lifestyle are a big pull, but buyers can now get better value for their money and take advantage of the weakening euro."
