Impressed by personal, professional partnership


By Paul, 15 December 2016

Testimonial for Caroline Oliver & Sarah Dyer-B

We have been extremely impressed with both the professionalism and the personal service we have received from Beaux Villages. From our initial enquiry to the 3 trips we made to view the properties nothing was too much trouble.

We were not pressured or hounded, we felt that Beaux Villages worked with us in a partnership to help us reach our decision. Not only was their assistance in the sales process and connecting us with other professionals invaluable but also their knowledge of the everything else we needed help with to establishing ourselves in the Dordogne.

I can’t believe how smooth the process was from start to finish. I cannot recommend Caroline and Sarah highly enough.


Worked tirelessly providing an exceptional service

Testimonial for Gill and Mike Puttock

Gill and Mike Puttock have given us both an exceptional and professional service. They have worked tirelessly and really targeted the properties very well for us.

All the Beaux Villages agents we have met have been extremely professional yet manage to create a personal relationship at the same time.

Mrs and Mr B

Prompt, personal and well informed

Testimonial for Lee Redican and Emma Waddington

Compared to previous experiences in Belgium and Spain...Congratulations!

If you didn't work with Lee Redican and his wife Emma Waddington, you really should. They are real people taking care in a very personal way of their potential customers. They work independent I believe. But I am convinced they work in the interest of the customer, trying to be fair for both parties. They don't push and take their time. Perfect.

Prompt, personal and well informed people.

Kind regards,


Thrilled with our purchase - celebrate with us!

Testimonial for Laura Croxford and Elena Huckin

Dear Laura and Elena

Just wanted to send you our thanks for making the purchase of La Lande happen. We’re thrilled with the house, and very much looking forward to moving in next weekend and beginning our new life in France. Once we’re settled and have found the wine glasses, we’ll be in touch and perhaps you’d like to come over and celebrate with us over a glass or two!

Best wishes

Pippa and Marcus

Reputation lead us to fabulous and honest agent


By Mr and Mrs V, 16 November 2016

Testimonial for Geof Cryer

Geof is fabulous because he isn't pushy and gives advice and opinion when asked. When we started looking we asked around the area for a company and someone who was honest and Geof's name and Beaux Villages came up every single time.

Without a doubt, the best realtor in France


By Jane C., 16 November 2016

Testimonial for Edite Hill

I had a very enjoyable trip. And I appreciate your putting me in touch with Edite Hill again. She is without doubt the best realtor with whom I've worked in France - she listens very well, and is resourceful and very, very efficient. On top of which it's a real pleasure to spend time with her as she's very considerate and is a lot of fun.

Testimonial for Judith Whitlow


By Jean, 24 October 2016

I go back to the UK today but wanted to thank you for your time, honesty and kindness in helping us, it was most appreciated and lovely to quickly feel I was dealing with some-one I could trust. I am sure other questions will emerge but I remain hopelessly in love with the house!

Testimonial for Judith Whitlow


By Jo and Mario, 24 October 2016

You will be glad to know that everything at the house is coming along as well as can be expected .... and we are beginning to get to grips with the many sophisticated systems here ! We have water, electricity, hot water, drainage, heating, and working internet, phone and telly ... could not really ask for more after just one week ! More importantly ..... the dogs seem to be settling in well. I wanted to thank you for all the help you have given Mario and I, which in no small way accounts for why things have gone so smoothly for us. Beaux Villages is an excellent estate agency - but you go far beyond what might be expected in terms of helping and guiding people ..... not only through the process of a purchase, but also towards making a happy life here. We would also like to thank you personally, as we would certainly not have come across this house by doing our own searches. You have that very rare quality of actually listening to people and searching through your mental rolodex to see if there are any properties on your books that might fit with their needs and wants. These comments are genuinely heartfelt, and we would be happy for them to be published on your website.

Best Wishes from Jo & Mario



By Joy, 12 August 2016

Hello Mike, I have to say of all the estate agents over the past couple of years who I, over and over again, told my requirements you are the only one who listened!!



By Mr B, 03 August 2016

We were very impressed with the properties Heather (via Carol) showed us in the area of Thiviers. Both agents have been extremely professional, friendly and informative and are both a credit to your company.



By Lynne and John, 02 August 2016

Hi Jacqui, We are pretty well settled; all our belongings are here and most stuff is unpacked; we've gone at it like 3 maniacs (John's son is here to help). Today we have to admit to feeling shattered. Christophe has been delightful and helpful throughout. He came yesterday and took us round to introduce us to three sets of neighbours who are also lovely. So all is well - very well, in fact - and we owe you a great big thank you for being so clever and finding this place. I'm sitting by the window watching the river - what's not to like??

Testimonial for Mike Sweetman


By Toby, 25 May 2016

Hi Mike, just a quick email to thank you and your team for making our visit last week such an enjoyable experience. Mary & I are so excited about our purchase and I have forward bought my currency through Smart Exchange (really helpful). Your name is used and was used quite a few times when we took the long way round on our travels. A detour will be known as a "Sweetman" from now on. All the best to you all. Regards Toby

Testimonial for Alex Overton-Hunt...


By Jim and Sian, 25 May 2016

...Andy Spiers, Tracy Faulkner and Mike Sweetman:

We returned last night from our house hunting sojourn in France and feel impelled to let you know of the lasting and positive impression made by the members of the Beaux Villages Group we met during our visit. They were, in chronological order: Andy Spiers and Mike Sweetman at the Jonzac office, and Alex Overton-Hunt at Verteillac. It is Alex to whom we owe a real debt of gratitude as he gave up a great deal of his time for us; he was personally charming, professionally experienced and knowledgeable. Thanks to him we learned a great deal about what it is to live in France which, to us, is every bit as important as buying a property there. Never once did we feel pressurised; there was no “hard sell” but what we did feel was a great respect for this consummate professional. Even those people whom we contacted but, for a variety of reasons, did not meet were charming and unfailingly helpful such as Tracy Faulkner whose administrative skills kept us regularly informed and well organised. As an organisation you must be very proud of the impression of your company given to prospective buyers by your individual agents and administrators. May I also compliment you on the quality of your web site; not only is it attractive to look at, having large photographs of properties, but the detailed information is also invaluable to a prospective purchaser. At the moment of writing we are awaiting a response to an offer we submitted but, regardless of whether we realise our dream home as a result of this visit, we will continue to hold the Beaux Villages Group in very high regard. With our thanks and very best wishes to all involved, Jim and Sian

Kind regards, Mr and Mrs B McCarthy

Testimonial for Janie and Jenny


By Angel Saywell, 02 May 2016

I just wanted to let you know what a good experience we had, from beginning to end, with our house sale. Janie was dynamite and extremely responsive to all situations, Jenny in the office was great too, and Peter. Watching Janie perform was pure poetry ! Thank you again to all who were involved. We are now back in the UK having a far more difficult time with purchase and conveyancing...... Angela

Testimonial for Jacqui Reddin


By Val C, 04 March 2016

I live in the UK and had a holiday home in France that I needed to sell. Jacqui was recommended to me by a friend. From the start she was very energetic, talking me through the sale procedure, organising the pre-sale diagnostic tests, advertising the house, and showing people around. Within a short space of time she produced a purchaser whose criteria fitted exactly my property. From then on Jacqui was busy, liaising with the purchaser and the notaire and updating me on progress towards completion. She is reliable, straightforward and friendly and goes above and beyond her brief for her clients. Consequently the sale was quite stress-free for me and I cannot thank her enough. If you’re looking for a pro-active estate agent, she’s your woman! Val C

Testimonial for Jane Collett and Shannon Daly


By Valerie McDonald, 21 February 2016

A huge thank you to Beaux Villages for an outstanding service. We have successfully completed on a property and the process was orchestrated very well by Jane and Shannon. Jane's meticulous paperwork and Shannon's patience, kindness and calm attitude got us through the whole process beautifully. We have now successfully moved in and are grappling with the plumbing and heating but enjoying the challenge! A massve thank you to all and especially Shannon....your support and generous help especially on you day off was hugely appreciated. Valerie

Testimonial for Norbert Juin


By Gill & Ross, 21 February 2016

We were very impressed with Norbert's professionalism, advice and the help he has given us purchasing our home in the Charente Maritime. He goes out of his way helping with anything asked and more, his assistance has been invaluable and much appreciated and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Norbert and Beaux Villages to anyone purchasing or selling their house.

Thanks and very best regards,

Gill and Ross

Testimonial for Norbert Juin


By Darinka & Boris Tatchev, 03 December 2015

We had an extended and very long search for a house in several departments, including Charente-Maritime. Norbert put a lot of efforts and spent a lot of time with us. Though we were difficult clients, he was very patient with us, organized everything in an excellent way and showed us very good properties. Finally we bought a house in other region, but we would like to thank Norbert for his excellent service. Boris & Darina Tatchev

Testimonial for Jan Emery


By Darinka & Boris Tatchev, 03 December 2015

We are very grateful to Jan, as she did a lot for organizing our viewings in several departments, covered by BV. We wouldn't be able to find a suitable house without her help. Thank you, Jan!
