    You Can Buy This Abandoned French Village For $400,000

    It's a bit of a fixer upper. The town of Saint Nicolas Coubefy, with more than a dozen buildings, can be yours for the low, low price of 300,000 euros. Its previous owners used it as a luxury bed and breakfast, but the global economic crisis has rendered it a quaint, rural ghost town.

    The French village of Saint Nicolas Courbefy, in Limousin, a region in central France, is seen for sale. The entire hamlet carried an asking price of just euro 300,000 ($440,000), the cost of a studio apartment in Paris.
