Excellent customer service from Nicola Summers at Beaux Villages. Her support and advice leading us through all stages of what can be a complex process were greatly appreciated.

Highly recommended

Buyers

By Danielle Robinson, 26 February 2024

Alice was incredibly attentive throughout our search for the perfect home. She listened carefully to our preferences and requirements, ensuring that every property she showed us was a potential match. Alice was proactive in finding new listings and was always available to answer our questions and address any concerns we had. Her attention to detail and dedication to finding us the right home made the entire process smooth and stress-free. We are grateful for her hard work and would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for their dream home in France.

Mike and his team held our hands every step of the way

Buyers

By Georgina Montague, 13 February 2024

From our initial contact with Sean in the office at Aubeterre on a warm summer’s holiday afternoon in August 2023 to receiving the keys to our new home in France less than 6 months later, our experience with BVI was nothing short of sensational. Sean referred us to Mike in the Jonzac office who took over, organising a viewings tour for us in September - Mike was delightful to deal with, couldn’t be more helpful and informative and quickly grasped what we were looking for in a home in France. Be it luck or good judgement, the first house we looked at was the one! Then from the moment our offer was accepted through to completion just before Christmas, Mike and his team held our hands every step of the way, no questions were too silly and nothing was too much trouble ;o). We would, and have, wholeheartedly recommend BVI to any perspective house buyer looking in France. Honestly, the process is considerably smoother and enjoyable that buying in the UK, and I know we’ll always be grateful and happy with our purchase.

Best estate agent we've ever dealt with

Buyers

By Ian King, 13 February 2024

Having bought and sold houses in the U.K. for over 50 years, I have had dealings with lots of different estate agents however, I can safely say that Eleonore Goodfellow of Beaux Villages in Bellac, is by far the best ever. Her meticulous attention to detail is refreshing and her conscientious and consistent approach to communication is nothing less that brilliant. I would have no reservations in recommending her services to anyone. From our first meeting, my wife and myself, were extremely pleased with the positive way she answered our numerous questions and followed up all of her actions with confirmation emails. We would confirm that Eleonore is a first class agent with a delightful sense of humour and we cannot recommend her highly enough. Very well done Eleonore.

A huge thank you to Amanda Somerfield

Buyers

By Robert and Susie Pairman, 07 February 2024

We have just purchased a house through Amanda Somerfield of Beaux Villages, the whole process was managed by Amanda in a very professional and diligent manner and her communication was first rate. From our first meeting, right through to being present at the Notaire’s office on the day of signing we were very happy with the great service that Amanda provided. We have bought and sold many times and without doubt, we would recommend Amanda in an instant to sellers and buyers alike.
Thank you Amanda.

Mike and his team were superb

Sellers

By Steve Fox, 20 December 2023

Thank you Mike & team at Beaux Villages. They were superb from first point of contact to final signing. Mike was passionate and committed about the sale of my property and his attention to detail was excellent. Keeping me informed every step of the way and always at hand to answer any questions and queries. I would most highly recommend them either as a seller or buyer in the french property market. Highly impressed.

Rachel Roxburgh was an absolute star!!

Sellers

By Jo and Les DellaMaestra, 14 December 2023

We recently sold our home in France having used the services of Beaux Villages. From initial contact to signing, it took less than seven months. Prior to engaging Beaux Villages, our home was on the market for over two years with another estate agent having had only serious inquiry!  My reason for this feedback is to highlight the sole reason our home sold in record time – Rachel Roxburgh at Beaux Villages.  What an absolute star!! At first contact Rachel instilled a professional confidence in us that carried on throughout the entire sale process…transparent and painless. In fact, Rachel continued with her professional excellence and assistance after the ‘signing’ in order to tidy up other French related issues. She never lost contact with us and kept us updated on every single issue. 

Mr Summers I needn’t go on about Rachel…you know what a true and genuine professional she is. Most importantly, Rachel is a good human being!! If we ever have a future need for a French estate agent Beaux Villages, and more specifically Rachel Roxburgh, will be our definite choice. Please know that we will share your name far and wide with others wishing to purchase or sell in France. 

Flawless service from Catherine and Gregory

Buyers

By Walter and Veerle Decoster, 08 December 2023

This is a spontaneous and unsolicited expression of our sincere appreciation towards Beaux Villages. More specifically towards Catherine Vanackere and Gregory Lemmes. Their service has been "far beyond duty". Without their service and team effort the deal could not have gone through !!!! The assistance from a judicial and administration point of view was outstanding. Thorough professionals !!! More. Their negotiation skills and diplomatic approach aiming at protecting the vendor and buyer's interest was astonishing. Their disponibility and swift reaction to handle stumbling blocks, to answer questions and clear uncertainties gave us a feeling of trustworthiness. Then, the service after sale, my god? Never seen before. We go on to recommend your super team (Vanckere / Lemmes) in France and in Belgium. Note we are expressing this as professionals in the game. My partner being a former real estate agent and member on the board of B.I.V. (Belgian). Me doing business in the services sector and being a professional marketeer. We have been around ! So, Madam Vanackere and Mister Lemmes, WELL DONE and THANKS for the support, assistance, and your flawless ethics.
 

Amanda Somerfield was a tremendous help

Sellers

By Jo White, 06 December 2023

I just wanted to write and say what excellent service i had from Amanda at your Piegut office, she went the extra mile to help in selling my property and with all the extra things I needed to do. I have sold property in the UK but find France a minefield. Amanda helped me with everything making it easy. I would be happy to recommend her personally and your agency to friends who are thinking of selling.

Karen was there every step of the way

Buyers

By Elvira Williams, 21 November 2023

Karen Regan went out of her way to find the property that she knew would suit all of our requirements. She supported us throughout the entire process, from the initial viewing to the final signing. She was at all times professional and helpful and as an added bonus, was great company.

We would thoroughly recommend Eric and his team

Sellers

By Sharon Meyler, 16 November 2023

We sold our house recently using the services of Eric Garnier and his team at Beaux Villages Immobilier, and would thoroughly recommend them to anyone looking to sell/buy in the area. The experience was smooth and trouble-free throughout. Any queries were dealt with efficiently and quickly, and the team were extremely helpful at all times. It was a pleasure to deal with them. Many thanks!

Cathy has been wonderful

Sellers

By Melanie Taylor, 15 November 2023

From the start Cathy has been superb. We decided to move after being in France for 11 years, but had no experience of selling. She explained the process completely, measured and assessed our property and quickly prepared our dossier for the market. Once the ball was rolling Cathy arranged all the necessary appointments and attended where it was helpful to us. We had a thousand questions and Cathy was able to answer them all, no matter how stupid or whatever the time of day. Viewers quickly started arriving, Cathy had prepared a dossier that enabled her colleagues to show their clients around with confidence, and 3 weeks later, we found our buyers, and within 3 months we were signing our house over. Even now, Cathy is still helping us with the handover of utilities and making sure that all loose are tied up for us. We are so grateful to her for everything she has done to make this a very easy journey. Thanks Cathy

We received an amazing service from Geraldine

Buyers

By Emma Anderton and Simon Cross, 10 November 2023

We have recently (September) completed on a maison de vacances in Haute-Vienne using Beaux Villages and I wanted to reach out with regards to our excellent immobilier Geraldine Van Rijs.
 
From the first contact we made with BVI & Geraldine we were taken aback by the high level of service we received. We are based in the UK which made things more difficult. Plus delays in getting going with our purchase due to covid was demotivating. Geraldine was so professional, friendly and helpful with every interaction. She went above and beyond every step of the way. We never felt like we couldn't ask questions, always felt we fully understood the property we had enquired about, and never felt pressured. We felt a genuine warmth and sense that Geraldine too wanted us to find the right property.
 
We are so delighted with our property and the level of service we received. We may have given up hope if we hadn't found Geraldine. We cannot thank Geraldine enough for her continued support with every element of not only purchasing our property but also setting up bills etc and understanding French systems.

Janine went above and beyond

Sellers

By Peter Strachan, 09 November 2023

I am writing to pass on my huge thanks for everything that Janine Wood has done during the last few years in respect of not only the sale of our property, but for the way she has dealt with the many and varied diversions that we have had to travel in order to get to this point. 
 
Janine has provided exceptional service, way and above what one would expect from an agent. She has done this with an attitude unswerving determination to achieve our goal. I cannot thank her enough. 
 

Thank you Merrilees and the Limoux team

Buyers

By Keith Southall, 08 November 2023

We were searching for a new home in the south of France, and we came across Merrilees working out of Limoux. She was one of the most professional people we have worked with whilst we were looking for the new home, she was always cheerful even when the house we went to wasn't quite what we wanted. She was very patient always on time, and we would definitely recommend her services to anybody else looking for a property in the area.

Thank you Heather and Catherine

Buyers

By Lucy and Richard Harris, 06 November 2023

Buying a property in France seemed an overwhelming thing to do but we didn’t need to be worried. After seeing the perfect house for us, we spoke with Heather who immediately put our minds at rest and took time to talk us through the process. Heather met with us to talk us through things. She sent us written information to follow up what she had explained. We bought our house quite spontaneously but it was reassuring to have Heather and Catherine on hand to guide us through step by step.  

The process turned out to be very straightforward. We recently travelled from the UK for the Acte de Vente and were given the keys to our beautiful little house. Heather made sure we had everything we needed, she  advised and supported us with sorting out amenities and made sure things were in place so that we could move straight in.  Nothing was too much trouble and we appreciate the personal touch. 

We have been very impressed with the support from the team at Beaux Villages. Thank you Heather and Catherine for helping to fulfil our family dream. We are so excited about our future in France. 

Lucy and Richard Harris 

Thank you Lindsay

Sellers

By Judith Hinsley, 06 November 2023

I am writing to you to tell you how very pleased I am with your agent Lindsay Low. The sale of my house in France has been a very difficult sale with endless problems. Lindsay has gone out of her way to resolve these problems as I have been unable to leave England and return to France due to health problems. She has at all times been supportive and encouraging through the bad times, and I cannot praise her highly enough for her friendly and professional manner.

Jacqui made the process so much smoother

Buyers

By Natalie Reilly, 03 November 2023

We recently bought a farmhouse in the Charente area through Beaux Villages. Jacqui Reddin-Williams was our point of contact from the beginning, setting up viewings, negotiating the sale, even coming with us to translate when we met with the local schools. Jacqui has given us lot's of tips and advice, both during the sale and since, and made the whole process much smoother than it could have been. We would definitely recommend Beaux Villages and Jacqui!

Fabulous service from Eric Garnier

Buyers

By Kevin Shearan, 01 November 2023

My wife and I decided we wanted a second home in a bastide town in South West France. My wife had met Eric Garnier about 6 months before our house hunting trip and maintained contact with him. Eric listened and really understood what we were looking for. He set up a schedule of properties that met some or all of our criteria but, critically, added one that he thought would work for us based on his interactions with us. That was the one! However Eric encouraged us to spend the time looking for alternatives before committing. He was extremely helpful throughout the purchase process and beyond, helping with finding contractors and navigating the utility providers. Without his fluent bi-lingual skills we’d have been at a total loss. We still have a lot to do but Eric and his colleagues got us off to a fabulous start.

Thank you Heather

Sellers

By Chris Caselton, 31 October 2023

As our sale completed successfully today I would like to complement Heather Comber, who saw us through what would have been a difficult process without her very friendly and professional guidance. Thanks Heather and Beaux Villages.
