8 Properties for sale in Meurthe-et-Moselle, Grand-Est (formerly Champagne-Ardenne, Lorraine and Alsace), France
This department in the Lorraine region owes its unusual shape (it’s been compared to a goose) to history – it’s a fusion of those communes in Meurthe and the original Moselle department that remained French after the 1871 Treaty of Frankfurt. Although set in the midst of Lorraine, at its northern edge it borders Belgium and Luxemburg. With four main rivers, forests and rolling countryside, the department offers plenty of gentle ways to enjoy nature. The town of Lunéville is rich in history and culture.
CAPITAL: NANCY Its three UNESCO-listed squares, the Places Stanislas, d’Alliance and de la Carrière are among the finest 18th-century architecture in France.
