A rural location can help your budget stretch further than you might expect, as these generously-sized homes prove.

Over the past year, space has been proven in many ways to be the ultimate luxury. When there’s nowhere to go, how big your home is dramatically impacts your everyday life. 

It can be the difference between having a quiet space to work from home or sitting at the kitchen table with your partner. If you have children, a lack of space to play might have left them feeling cooped up, while those of us without gardens have probably never been more envious of those who do. 

If you’re dreaming of more space without having to shell out a fortune, turn your search to more rural areas and you might be surprised by just how much space you could afford. These three homes all have four bedrooms, gardens, and come in at under €200,000.
