Delighted with the service


By Liz and Richard, 30 August 2018

Testimonial for Tracy Page:

We have now returned back to the UK but we just wanted to write and say a big thank you for the service you gave us whilst we were in France from 1st - 9th August this year.

As you know we come over to France looking for a house within the Charente/Charente-Martime area, although we weren't quite sure to start off with exactly where within that region. Our original idea was that we would like to be near the coast.

We would like to say that at all times we were delighted with the extremely professional service you provided. Each of the houses you showed us fitted our criteria and gave us something to think about.There was wide variety of properties which was very important to us to understand what was available. You arranged to meet us on four separate days in order to show us the suitable properties which you had, even arranging viewings of gites on changeover days. You clearly had a good relationship with each of the vendors and your excellent French was a real asset.

We felt you went out of your way to help us, especially the day when we made a mistake over how long it would take us to get to one of the viewings. You were very relaxed, despite the fact that we had messed you around, and even managed to rearrange the appointment in what was an already tight schedule for you.

We loved your approach to showing us the houses. We felt you genuinely wanted to help us find our dream holiday home. We never felt under any pressure but you were able to give us positive insights and reassurance where we had concerns.

We want to wish you all the best for the future and if we know of anyone else looking for a property in your area we would not hesitate to put them in contact with you.

A credit to Beaux Villages!

You are a credit to Beaux Village Immobilier.

Thank you, Sean.

Testimonial for Angella Turner

I had a bad experience with one of your competitors. You are still by far the best contact we have had by a long way! So wear your badge with pride!


A great start!


By Julia, 21 August 2018

Testimonial for Angella Turner:

In terms of feedback, we probably searched 4 sites and the reaction to our enquiries has been mixed, from zero to very good, and your attention is definitely in the very good bracket so hopefully we can do business!

Jacqui is truly exceptional!


By Gavin and Laura, 16 August 2018

Testimonial for Jacqui Reddin-Williams:

We purchased Le Maine Au Cerf near Jonzac with the support of Jacqueline Reddin-Williams of Beaux Villages. She was professional and helpful every step of the way. Jacqui is truly exceptional.

We had a completely personalised experience working with Jacqui. She showed us the perfect house, one which we had not been able to find online for ourselves. We attribute this to her deep understanding of people and what they need and want from a home in France.

After securing the property for us, she became our trusted adviser for the next three months. Everything she advised was verified again and again by other sources as we made our way through the French purchase process.

We particularly appreciate her effort when accommodating our various and numerous requests. Given this was our first property purchase in France and we spoke very little French, we felt like we were in safe hands and were always Beaux Villages number one priority.

Jacqui became a friend through the process and someone we hope to have in our French life for many years to come.

Gavin and Laura

Unfailing efficiency


By G & B, 06 August 2018

Testimonial for Karen Fritchley,

My wife and I would like to thank Beaux Villages for finding and dealing with a buyer and the notaire for the sale of our house. Beaux Villages staff have seen us through the process with unfailing efficiency and a special courteous friendliness that minimised the stress and maximised our confidence that things were proceeding as they should. Thank you.

THANK YOU. Sincerely, G & B

Couldn't have asked for more


By David, 06 August 2018

Testimonial for Karen Fritchley & Anne Kemp-Reynolds

Dear Karen & Anne,

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 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.


Help and support

Testimonial for Laura Croxford:

Hi Laura

Anne and I would like to thank you very much for all the help and support over the last six months, it's much appreciated. We've found the water connection and had an initial meeting with Peter. We're very happy with our purchase and had not one second thought after seeing it again last week. .

Thanks and kind regards


Can't thank Lisa enough!


By Richard and Anne, 05 June 2018

Testimonial for Lisa McKenna:

We just wanted to let you know how helpful one of your staff was with the sale of our small cottage in Haute Vienne. Lisa was fantastic in everything she did from initially visiting the house, finding another buyer when the original buyer withdrew to really helping with the administration process and even sorting out the notaire and insurance agent! Without Lisa we would have sunk like a stone under the French Administration onslaught, we can't thank her enough. We wanted to let you know about Lisa's help, she is a real asset to your company.

Yours sincerely, Richard and Anne

A rare find


By B & C, 30 May 2018

Testimonial for Lee Redican:

Just wanted to Thank you for all your help whilst we were staying in Montmorillon; it really gave us a good insight on what it would be like if we ever get to re locate there. We really were impressed with the way in which you not only showed us suitable properties for our criteria, but also you gave us a lot of very useful advice on the pitfalls and pearls that you found yourself when you re located to France. You also showed us areas of interest in the vicinity, and answered our questions honestly with us and our family in mind. You are a rare find and cannot compliment your work ethic enough. As soon as we manage to sell our property back in the U.K we will be in touch and see what you have on your books which will hopefully be as lovely as the property that we both fell in love with.

Kindest regards B & C

We recommend Emma and Lee

Testimonial for Nicole Killick:

I just wanted to say a very BIG THANK YOU for all your professionalism,effort and time helping us find a home. I am very happy to tell you that we have been blessed out of our socks with a little place in Parisot that has come through. Thank you again, we could not have done this without wonderful people like you!

Very grateful for advice


By Grateful client, 17 May 2018

Testimonial for Janine Wood:

I shall definitely recommend Beaux Villages to anyone else going through the process, services such as the Smart Currency have been very useful, and of course it was good knowing that we could contact you for advice whenever about whatever.

Thanks and all the best!

Honesty, knowledge and experience


By 2 Very Happy Clients, 11 April 2018

Testimonial for Anne Kemp-Reynolds:

Thank you again for arranging our viewings, we all found you to be highly processional and informative. As mentioned your knowledge, experience and honesty were appreciated and extremely helpful. This was also beneficial to our understanding of the local area and living in France. Additionally the fact that your company provides far more quality pictures on your website makes the experience of viewing properties online easier and you get a much better insight to what is on offer.

Just to say thanks


By Pete, 11 April 2018

Testimonial for Geof Cryer and Janine Wood:

Dear Geof and Janine, Marguerite and I wanted to thank you very much indeed for the work leading up to the sale of little house. We're very pleased with the outcome, and we hope that they will be happy in their new home. The Notaire was extremely efficient and I do hope that you are able to use her in the future. With many thanks and kind regards,

Easy currency exchange


By Karen, 15 March 2018

Testimonial for our partners at Smart Currency Exchange:

I wanted to let you know that we transferred our deposit money to the Notary earlier this week. We used Smart (Currency Exchange) who were very easy to deal with, thanks for the recommendation.

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”.

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.
