(Newser) – Got $431,000 lying around? A deserted French village can be all yours. Courbefy, located in the Limousin region, comes with 19 buildings, including family homes, reports the Telegraph. Be forewarned: Neighbors say it's frequented by "thieves, drunks and squatters," and one dubbed it a ghost village. But it does have a swimming pool. The deadline for bids is Friday, and so far there are none on the books, notes Yahoo News. The village had about 200 people living there at its peak, decades ago.
