Thank you David Smethurst


By Christopher Davis, 05 July 2024

I should like to record my appreciation of the service that I received from you and your colleagues at Beaux Villages, in the recent sale of my house. It was unfailingly responsive, courteous and constructive. In a difficult selling period, the team was able to generate regular viewings by 'proceedable' buyers. I also used two other agencies and Beaux Villages promoted far more viewings than these other agencies. However, not only was I able to benefit from the high level of service from front line staff, I was very impressed by the efficiency and responsiveness of  the legal department who liaised very effectively between the parties and the Notaire. I have had no hesitation in recommending Beaux Villages to friends.
Best wishes,
Christopher Davis

David Smethurst was a top notch agent


By Jeremy and Marlene Hervey, 24 June 2024

We wanted to write you a short note to thank you for all your help over the last few months and for being a ‘top notch” estate agent. Finding a property in France was quite challenging since we had so many criteria on our tick list, but our biggest worry was actually “purchasing’’ the house. We came accross so many estate agents too uninterested to even sell us a house and therefore were left thinking how difficult was the actual process of buying a house going to be? Had we known we were going to come accross someone as helpful as you, we would not have needed to worry because with your assistance it was remarkably easy. This was mainly due to your patience (apologies again for all the emails and the phone calls) but also the fact that you were always so quick to answer any queries/ worries we had. With your support and your step-by-step guidance throughout the whole process, the purchase of our new home in France was truly stress free and a really enjoyable experience. So a huge thank you and all the very best for the future.
Kindest regards,
Jeremy and Marlene

Matthew Barry and Kathy Keep were so helpful


By Mary Bennett, 27 May 2024

We just wanted to say a very big “thank you” to you both for all your help and support over the last few months during our purchase of our fabulous new home. It really is a great property and we are all looking forward to spending many happy times there with our friends and family. Your knowledge, advice, and always a prompt reply throughout the process, made it so much easier for us. It was the best 60th birthday present I could have asked for, having turned 60 just last week! We are all looking forward to a new chapter in France and appreciate all the help you gave us.
With our thanks and kind regards,
Bennett family

We will be recommending Beaux Villages


By Lilianne Kennes and Walter Quaijtaal, 23 May 2024

It has been almost 3 weeks since we bought our dream house in France. For this I would like to thank your team very much for the great guidance until the purchase of our house. We would like to thank Mahsa Newman very much for the professional handling of our file. She was always available for any questions and always replied very quickly. A big congratulations for that. Coincidentally, we met other people here whom she also assisted and they had the same impression. In other words, many thanks to the entire team. We will recommend you highly to potential buyers whenever possible. 
Best regards,
Lilianne and Walter

Heather was excellent


By Eileen and Sid Parkes, 22 May 2024

We would like to thank Heather for all the help she gave us when we were selling our house in France. She made an excellent video to put on the marketing site and she answered all our questions quickly and professionally.
thank you,
Eileen and Sid Parkes

Professional and passionate


By Julian and Tamara Summers, 09 May 2024

We would like to thank Heather who was excellent in dealing with the sale of our house. She was very professional in her manner, great with communication, responding very swiftly, and was wholeheartedly passionate about selling our house.  Plus her photos were outstanding.  We are grateful for all that she did and highly recommend her.
Many thanks

Daniela Harris and her team have been fantastic


By Sophie G, Limoux, 16 April 2024

Thank you so much for your incredible help with this process. You have been fantastic, and we much appreciate you going above and beyond.

Thank you Helen and Mike!


By Susie and Chris Johnson, 15 April 2024

We want to thank you and Mike for all of the help you gave us during the sale of our house in France. We will and have recommended you both and Beaux Village to all of our friends who are likely to be putting their houses up for sale. After ten years in France as a second home owner, you made the sale process quite stress free which also made the leaving process easier for us. Thank you again to you and Mike and the very best of health and luck for the future.
Kindest Regards,
Susie and Chris

Thank you Nicola Summers


By Emma Hale, 26 February 2024

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


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


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


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


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


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!!


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


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


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


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


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


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
