Testimonial for Edite Hill


By Patricia, 13 November 2015

During the year long sale of our house in Cazes Mondenard, Edite has always been positive and given us many viewings. We have found her to be efficient and business like. She is now helping us to find a new house. Above all I would now consider her a friend.


All-round great


By Gregory, 09 November 2015

Laura is a great person to have as an agent. She didn’t limit her efforts to provide us the necessary information, and also helped us out on other matters specific to our situation. Thank you Laura.

We will not forget your kindness


By Bernard, Berenice & Mark, 02 November 2015

The only thing we are really disappointed by is that we were not able to buy a house from you and we are really sad about it. You have been extremely helpful, in more ways than one. We are so thankful to you and we will not forget your kindness.

Testimonial for Jacqueline Reddin-Williams


By John & Olwyn Stewart, 16 October 2015

We want to say how impressed we are with the professional service and advice we received from Jacqui when selling our house in France. The house was sold in record time and, although very saleable, this was also very much due to the research put in by her in finding the right buyers for our house. Jacqui is very pro-active and makes a point of getting to know the house, so was therefore very positive and knowledgeable when showing people around the property. She was always on call to answer any problems that arose in connection with the sale, so in doing so took a lot of the strain away from us. You also have a very well presented website and we couldn't recommend Jacqui and your company highly enough. Many thanks.

By Melanie & Lyall Cory, 05 October 2015

We would like to say a huge thank you to Jacqui Reddin for all her help and support in selling our much loved home in France. Jacqui was always supportive and professional, she is a delight to deal with and all through our complicated sale she kept us informed. Thank you Jacqui, we will miss you.

Testimonial for Mike Sweetman


By Suzie, 24 August 2015

I will just have to keep waiting until we find that lovely stone house. It's got to have the true rustic essence. Thanks for your help. I really want to buy a house through you as you've been the best!


Testimonial for Kate Ryle and team


By Stephen, 06 August 2015

Many thanks to you, Kate and the team for dealing with our sale in a sensitive and understanding way. We know we were quite difficult and your patience was appreciated. If we ever look to move back we will be in touch with you first.


Testimonial for Jenny Henderson and Johanna Jaggs


By David, 27 July 2015


I thank you both very much for your care, assistance and swift attention to the purchase of my new abode which will be open both by door and wine bottle any time you wish to drift by. We will do a meal at 'Table Rouge' in celebration.


Testimonial for Kevin Whitlow


By Karin & Mike, 25 June 2015


'Mike and I would like to thank Kevin for all his patience and good humour throughout our search for our home in the Dordogne. At the very start of our search we tried many estate agents but as soon as we met Kevin we knew he was the man to do the job for us! We had even resorted to being on Place in the Sun but even they did not manage to find our dream home. The journey started back in the autumn of 2013 and culminated with us taking ownership of our wonderful new house in January 2015. Kevin provided sound advice and support throughout which made the whole buying process run very smoothly for us. Thank you Kevin, we really appreciate the effort you made.

Warm wishes

Testimonial for Beaux Villages


By Nick R, 24 May 2015

With just a couple of years to go until retirement and our dream of moving to France, I came across your website and have at last found a really well presented and helpful source of information and properties exclusively South West. Perfect - I will be keeping an eye on what we can and can't afford and keep dreaming until we take the plunge. Great site - well done and thank you !

Testimonial for Mike Day


By Phil, 23 March 2015


Thanks for your e-mail and the work that you have done to promote our house. It's reassuring to have an agency who keep in touch and act promptly. Let's hope that the response is good. We always have the house in a very presentable condition awaiting prospective buyers.

Best regards,

Testimonial for Marion Robb


By Diane Porteous, 24 February 2015

Testimonial for Ruth Sutton


By Michael and Cathie Cooper, 05 January 2015

Dear Mr Longley,

My wife and I recently completed the purchase of a house in Montjoi and we would like to express our sincere thanks to your company and to Ruth Sutton in particular. From when we first viewed the property in June through to the completion of the sale on Christmas Eve, Ruth has been committed, supportive and determined. She has been nothing but professional and helpful throughout a process which, for Brits buying for the first time in France, can be a little daunting to say the least. Furthermore, the sale was far from straightforward and we would like to stress that Ruth’s professionalism, care, integrity and commitment made sure that we got ’there’ in the end. Ruth has been so supportive throughout the entire process and, to be frank, we do not think that we would have managed to complete the sale without all that she did. We are very happy in our new house - thank you again to Beaux Villages and especially to Ruth. Happy new year.

Best regards

Michael & Cathie

Testimonial for Judith Whitlow


By Tony Chapman, 24 November 2014

Dear Rob & Lynn

I am writing to pass you some feedback about our recent viewing visit to France (14-17/11/14) We are currently searching for a property as a permanent residence. My wife Julia & I are planning to move there in 2015. We have been searching for the past 2-3 years for a suitable property. Of all the agents & agents’ representatives we have met in France we have found Judith Whitlow to have been the most consistently professional & helpful. Over many months she has helped us narrow down our search & we spent a day with her last week viewing several properties, one of which is one of our favourites & a possible candidate for purchase. She is a very sensitive & customer focussed person who helped us understand the realities of buying in France & gave us a very useful insight into French living. She also demonstrated a very competent & personable style with vendors. We will continue to work with Judith to, hopefully, conclude a sale in France. Btw, we have found the Beaux Villages website to be helpful too. I hope you find this feedback useful.

Kind regards

Tony Chapman

Testimonial for Johanna Jaggs


By Adam Hain, 24 November 2014

I just wanted to reiterate how wonderful and helpful you have been from start to finish in relation to our property purchase in France.

Your assistance, patience and skills in navigating through the particular situation we had with the Vendor of the property was amazing. My wife and I are looking forward to inviting you and your husband over to celebrate once we have settled in!

Please do ask prospective clients to contact me if they would like any references or just want to chat through the process and how helpful you are.

Kind regards,


Testimonial for Johanna Jaggs


By Mark and Denise Arnold, 29 September 2014

As Australians searching for a property in France, we understood very little of the language or of French property law and processes. It was very fortunate for us then, that we happened upon a property that was being marketed by Johanna. She assisted us greatly with every step of the process, going out of her way to make sure we understood each leg of the transaction and what it entailed. She also introduced us to a solicitor and between the two of them we received invaluable advice and excellent service. Johanna even went so far as to stay in touch while she was out of France on her annual holidays. We can’t endorse enough the service ethic that she has, which has continued beyond the finalisation of the sale.

Thanks Johanna for your assistance and support during our purchase.
