Courbefy, in the Limousin region, comes complete with 19 buildings and a swimming pool and at one time had a population of around 200, although it is now largely deserted. Prospective buyers have until Friday to put in a bid for the village, which is less than 30 miles from Limoges.

In the 1990s, an attempt to turn Courbefy into a holiday village was abandoned because of the costs, and locals now say it is mainly home to “thieves, drunks and squatters”.
