Great website!


By Christopher, 12 March 2018

Because your website is so well constructed and comprehensive (far and away the best French property website we have visited) it is possible to get a real feel of the properties and will hopefully prevent a lot of time-wasting further down the line.

Supportive and knowledable


By Len Bailey, 06 March 2018

Testimonial for Caroline Oliver, Sarah Dyer-Bernet and Anna Stewart:

We found Beaux Villages when we first came to the Dordogne. We tried another agency but immediately found that the BVI staff knew the properties, were much more amenable and spoke English, which was a great help. It took us almost 2 years to find our new home, during this time we never felt that we were being rushed to find somewhere. They took their time to explain all aspects of property purchase, here in France, and to make sure our home would be the one we were after.

Thanks to Caroline for all the hard work and patience shown on our behalf and thank you also to Sarah – Lalinde office and to Anna – Verteillac office who have been very supportive since we found our “dream home”.

Hard working people

Testimonial for Jacqui Reddin-Williams: Thank you so much to Jacqui for all your help in a successful sale. Beaux Villages have been great, Jacqui is fab, totally dedicated. I also want to add a thank you to Mike Sweetman, Norbert and Lucy, all lovely,hard working people. Try using Beaux Villages and you won't be disappointed !

Professional, friendly and helpful


By Mr and Mrs G, 31 January 2018

Testimonial for Jemma Simkins:

We just wanted to say how fantastic Jemma has been over the duration of our property purchase. We first met Jemma in the Spring of last year, when we were searching in her area. She was so professional, friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. She made all the other agents we saw look quite useless! When we eventually found our property, although it wasn’t Jemma who showed it to us, it was her we turned to when we couldn't get the answers we needed. (I hasten to add I am a bit of a hasty responder and ‘must know now’ merchant, having run our own businesses in Jersey and UK -including an estate agency!) Jemma picked up the requests and found the answers needed quickly and efficiently. Finally yesterday the Acte de Vente was signed under proxy. It was Jemma’s email that greeting us this morning congratulating us - the notaire’s appeared later! We will have no hesitation in recommending Beaux Villages to one and all because of Jemma - for that we thank her. As too many are quick to complain, we just wanted to compliment for a change.

Good service


By Beaux Villages Applicant, 28 January 2018

Testimonial for Carol Wells:

Thank you very much for sending through the property details. You have been busy and a good selection, We have also heard from (other agents), but in fairness I do feel the level of service we have had from you has been very impressive so far, and I would much rather deal with you.

Thanks and very best regards


By L and I, 25 January 2018

Testimonial for Chris Remnant:

Your agent, Chris Remnant was really great and showed us a lovely house. We have deliberated for some time as to whether to buy the house Chris showed us or another house at the coast, and I'm afraid, the coast won! We have made an offer and had it accepted.

I must say, that we have had a total of three viewing trips, two to the Bordeaux area and recently the one in Languedoc, and have seen some wonderful properties with your fantastic agents. The fact that we have not bought a house we saw with you is not because of lack of effort or enthusiasm, it is because we found the right house which just happened to be listed with another agent!

I would like to thank Mike Sweetman in the Bordeaux region and both Richard Search and Chris Remnant in Languedoc for all their help with our search!

If, in the event, our purchase does not go ahead I will be in touch!

With renewed thanks and very best regards,

I would recommend Beaux Villages


By David, 25 January 2018

Testimonial for Karen Fritchley and Anne Kemp-Reynolds:

Just a quick note to thank you both most sincerely for all your help in purchasing our new property.

I certainly could not have expected any more ***stance from you both. None of my dumb questions seemed too dumb and you both were ever so patient, which I really do appreciate.

I certainly would recommend the services of Beaux Villages to anyone in a similar position in wanting to buy in the Dordogne.

All kind wishes and heartfelt thanks.


Providing an admirable service


By Mr & Mrs C, 15 January 2018

Testimonial for Norbert Juin

Dear Norbert It was great to meet you. I can't tell you how much we appreciate all the time and effort you spent on us on Monday, so thank you very much. It was indeed a very interesting day! We were both very impressed by your professionalism and the good rapport you demonstrated with each individual property owner.

Very best regards, T & L

Professional and courteous


By Brian Leaker MBE, 02 January 2018

Testimonial for Lucy Hollis:

Now the dust has settled and we have concluded a purchase in France I wish to write to commend Lucy Hollis, she was extremely professional, courteous and represented your business in a very professional manner. My only regret was not being able to find a property for purchase from you but be assured I have already promoted to other potential buyers of property your company. Hope you and especially Lucy have a busy and profitable 2018

Dream Team !


By Martin Henderson, 28 December 2017

Testimonial for the Team at Tournon d'Agenais..

So you do the usual....cruise the websites, select a broad area, perhaps even venture into offices that have pictures in window of properties for sale..."how hard can it be ?" you ask yourself !...What you forget to think about is the added value a good agent will bring - and Beaux Villages do just that - willingly, with good nature and a high quality service - from phone calls, viewing properties (some occupied, some not), finding the property in the first place ! Email correspondence, worries about anything, advice about the things you'll need: bank accounts; money transfer; perhaps even a contact for a local trades-person, and of course interpretation of "legal-ese"....the list goes on.

Beaux Villages helped us find what we were looking for - and after 3 years of looking and dreaming ....they unlocked the door for us! A genuine thank you to the team, and I mean "team" - because you get the TEAM, not just one agent.

Special thanks though to Kevin and Judith, a great couple that have the experience, first hand, know what its like and can unlock the dream you've been looking for. 

Thanks all 

Martin & Kimbely

On the ball and very rare...


By Christine Nelson, 07 December 2017

Testimonial for Beaux Villages Immobilier:

Just a line to thank you for all your help this year, you are by far the best immobillier we have had, on the ball with all our many viewings that you have brought round our house and always a feedback which is very rare with the others.


Thanks for everything, Jeanette


By Mr and Mrs A, 09 November 2017

Testimonial for Jeanette Barton:

The 10 day cooling off period for our buyers ended yesterday, so I think it is safe to say the house is sold and can now be taken off the market.

Can't thank you enough for everything you did and the effort you put in.

We would be very happy to recommend your services


By penelope, 25 October 2017

Testimonial for Carol Wells:

Dear Carol We would just like to say how grateful we are for all your help and advice about properties and the area. You kindly took us around to visit some beautiful properties last week. It was a very busy and productive week. Even if we haven't found our dream property with BVI it wasn't for the lack of lovely properties you showed us. Once again, Thank you. You were a part of that process that could be very stressful, but you made it a pleasure. We would be very happy to recommend your services in the future. We wish you all the best.

Kind regards A&P

At last an agent who gives that little extra


By Terry, 06 September 2017

Testimonial for Beaux Villages Immobilier:

I've been searching, it seems forever, for a property in France and have become increasingly frustrated by what appears to be an element of "do-little" agencies, who upload 6 photos with a very brief 2 line description and then charge 7% and more; my best to date has been 6 words and 3 pictures and a commission of 9% !!!

Whilst I haven't found that elusive "perfect" property on Beaux Villages, I'm sure I've got 20 times more chance of finding it here than with other "agents". I am regularly seeing 20+ pictures and comprehensive descriptions, if only others took the hint.

Meanwhile, I'll get back to the search :-)

Outshining other agents


By Geoffrey Davis, 17 August 2017

Testimonial for Nicole Killick

I recommend this firm. Nicole has been very proactive and has outshone the other agents acting both in terms of proactivity and helpfulness. She is bringing us more viewings by quite a margin and a lot of French families. The latest yesterday was a French family based in Paris. It was a bank holiday so very peaceful!!

You sounded knowledgeable enough to know about the CGT and Social Tax that can be levied on a sale. I am slowly understanding the position.

An honest agent made a great experience


By martin and julie henderson, 17 August 2017

Testimonial for Kevin Whitlow

Kevin First of all thank you for you time, navigational skills, honest opinion, great humour and sharing of experience yesterday. We loved every minute of it and you inspired us with confidence that we were right to contact the "Beaux Villages" team, so thank you to you and everyone at the office.

A dream come true


By Don, 17 July 2017

Testimonial for Anne Kemp-Reynolds

Hi Anne, Lovely to hear from you and in many ways it is you who has made our dream come true. By being such a kind person and ambassador for your company you kept me chasing my dream! The house is exactly me! We just love the stroll down to the beautiful river and the restaurant on its banks. Do keep in touch and thanks again.


Great job -- an offer within a few weeks!


By bev and brian, 09 June 2017

Testimonial for Mike Sweetman

Hi Mike,

Thank you, we can hardly believe it, the other agents managed to get just a handful of viewers between them and in a few weeks Beaux Villages got us an offer. Karen did a great job, think you're the only proactive agents in the Charente!!

Will definitely be recommending your services .

Fingers crossed all goes smoothly!


Great staff did us proud


By Ron Shaw, 24 May 2017
