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”.

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.

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.


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.


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

Testimonial for Kate Ryle

An easy and stress free process


By sandra beaumont, 18 January 2017

Testimonial for Norbert Juin

Hi Norbert

Happy New Year! I had hoped to email you before Christmas but never quite got round to it!

I just wanted to contact you to thank you for all your help and support over the last few months while we have been going through the purchase of the property in Le Vert. We couldn't have done it without you and you made the whole process very easy and stress free!!

We are coming over in February to look at what needs to be done and try and organise the pool installation. It would be great to catch up with you sometime so please let us know if you are in the area and you can pop in for a coffee or glass of wine! We are there from the 11th-17th Feb.

Thanks again

Regards Sandra & Andy

A special mention for a great negotiator


By John and Anne Haigh, 02 January 2017

Testimonial for Shannon Daly.

We want to make special mention of your negotiator at Verteillac, Shannon Daly. After over 2 years of little progress Shannon saw our house near Riberac "Larmalie" and realised it was a beauty, so decided to push it for us. She achieved a sale within a few months of this (fast by French standards)! As in so many affairs, great salesmanship wins the day. Well done Shannon - any clients winning her interest should count their blessings.

Professional and intuitive lead to a sale


By Rob and Linda Burke, 15 December 2016

Testimonial for Caroline Oliver

Dear Caroline

Now that our lovely property near Cales has been settled, we just wanted to say how much we appreciated your professional and yet very personal handling of the sale. We were so surprised when we received an offer in such a short time and from such a delightful family, obviously in love with the house and garden, so your intuition about the “fit” was just right. Thank you. In addition to that, we have very much enjoyed your friendship and assistance over the last 4 years and for helping us to find our property in the first place. Your advice re insurance, banking, legal, phone and facilities connections were all so very helpful, not to mention your recommendations for help around the house, especially garden maintenance. It was also good to catch up for a cuppa in the garden from time to time. Please also pass on our sincere thanks to Sarah, a delightful person to deal with and extremely efficient and knowledgeable. We will be back in the Dordogne next summer and look forward to seeing you again and having a glass of champers together. Very best wishes and have a lovely Christmas.

Rob and Lynda

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.
