Many thanks Anna Stewart and team


By Jonathan Duerr, 11 January 2023

We sold our French holiday property last year, using Beaux Villages Immobilier in Verteillac to handle the process. From start to finish took only three months, and our agent Anna could not have been more helpful: providing a realistic valuation, patiently answering (and anticipating) our queries, arranging and attending the necessary surveys and being present for the final signing with the notaire. We have no hesitation in recommending her and her team at BVI.

The team were there every step of the way


By Matt Romeril, 09 January 2023

A truly knowledgable, friendly, and professional team that managed the whole buying process - from viewings, to handing over the keys on purchase date, and everything in between.

The multilingual team were on hand at all times to answer any questions and advise on any matters we weren’t sure of (there were lots).

I would highly recommend Chris, Jo, Nicki, and the team at Beaux Villages for anyone wanting to buy or sell a property!

Highly recommended


By Louise Etherington, 03 January 2023

Met with Chris in June last year to discuss selling my house, within 10 days there was an offer made, unfortunately that sale fell through but through no fault of Chris or his team the property was later sold within 2 months, Chris was very professional and charming throughout the process, kept me up to date and responded quickly to my emails if I had questions, would highly recommend.

Thank you Jacqui


By Steve, 03 January 2023

Many thanks again for all your professional and moral support during the house selling process and in my time of need, I don’t really know how to express my thanks properly tbh, but you were a lifesaver for me.
Take good care of yourself and if I ever need another house in France there’s only one person I’d come to.
Warmest regards 

Beaux Villages exceeded our expectations


By Sheila Maddox, 30 December 2022

We have nothing but good things to say about Julie and Kevin from Beaux Villages. Our home purchase exceeded our expectations and was completed in record time. They were with us every step of the way and handled our questions efficiently and professionally. Their expertise helped to make the process a pleasant and rewarding experience. I feel we developed a lasting relationship and hope to meet up with them again, soon!

I am incredibly grateful to Jacqui


By Lesley Lindley, 22 December 2022

I am writing to commend the service of Jacqui Reddin-Williams in the sale of my property and without whom, I am certain I would never have managed. She was constantly proactive, very helpful, reassuring and dealt with all the issues that arose, and there were several along the way, in a most efficient manner and calmed all my fears and worries.

I would recommend her and Beaux Villages without hesitation and am incredibly grateful for her pulling everything together to make the completion happen. I cannot thank her enough.

Thanks for all your work and support


By Vicky McLean, 12 December 2022

I just want to let you know how very happy I was that I chose Beaux Villages to manage the sale of my house. I really appreciated the online space for monitoring the visits, there was great communication and feedback. Daniela Harris guided me through selling our family home and made the whole thing as stress free as possible. Always available and supportive, it was really good to know there was someone sorting out issues on my behalf.
A very professional agent and company. Thank you all for your work and support.
I would be more than happy to recommend the agency and Dani.
Thanks again
Vicky McLean

Mark was extremely knowledgeable, courteous and friendly


By Mr and Mrs Rudd, 11 December 2022

For over a year, we have been liaising with Mark Roelofsen of Beaux Villages. Mark has been assisting us with our French property search in the Southwest of France. During this time, we worked with a number of agencies in order to find the right property. The service received from Mark was exceptional and ‘second to none’. Although our property requirements changed over time, Mark was patient and listened carefully to our wishes. Each property we expressed an interest in was quickly followed by full details enabling us to shortlist accurately. When the right house was eventually found, Mark took the time to arrange ‘virtual viewings’ and accompanied us on the actual viewing. After our offer was accepted Mark ‘guided’ us through the process even attending the final signing with the Notaire. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mark and Beaux Villages to any prospective French property buyer. Extremely knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, and professional is how we would describe the Mark.

Friendly, responsive and trustworthy


By Carrie Culling, 02 December 2022

I am in the uk and After spending over a week looking for properties in France and not having much luck with anyone getting back to me I had a response from Julie.
She has been amazing with helping me find a property suitable for my dad who has been unwell and living in France.
She is incredibly responsive and has done everything she could to answer all my questions and give me all the information I needed on the houses we were interested in so we could make an informed decision.
She even took the time to do a video viewing with me so I could look at the property even though I couldn't be there in person.
She has helped me navigate my way around the french housing market with her wealth of knowledge.
It has been a very stressful situation with my dad and Julie has made it so much easier, I can't thank her and her partner enough.
She is friendly, professional,responsive and trustworthy
I can't recommend her enough
Thank you again Julie

Henry was fantastic!


By Sophie Daw, 28 November 2022

Henry took all the stresses of buying my recent property abroad. He was always there to answer any questions I had promptly and kept me updated throughout the process. Henry was also there to help me set upy bills which was invaluable given the language difference. I would have no hesitation in recommending Henry for any house purchase or sale. Thank you so much.

Very impressed with Elé and Catherine


By Steve Penney, 01 November 2022

I just wanted to take time out to thank both Elé and Catherine for the superb job they made of both the selling of our property in Chateauponsac and the buying of our new house in Le Dorat. The speed, enthusiasm and communication by particularly Elé, was a joy to behold. Nothing was too much trouble, even requests above and beyond the norm. Elé made a great presentation of our property in the media, which resulted in a sale to the first viewing. The right buyer to the right house at the right time, backed up by Catherine's assistance in weaving through the lengthy process. Sorry to labour the point, but, we were fortunate that it was Elé who showed what was to become our next home. Again, nothing too much trouble. Always punctual and a real bonus, being fully bilingual, able to get answers to our queries from the french sellers and at the notaire, explaining every nuancee of the contracts. Painless. Happy bunnies, very happy to recommnend Elé and as a consequence Beaux Villages.
Best Regards
Steve Penney

Thank you Jacqui


By Gavin Ferraris, 28 October 2022

Jacqui Reddin Williams is amazing. The best real estate agent and most wonderful person. Proactive and professional. Highly recommended for any French property sales or purchases in the Charente-Maritime region.

Jacqui guided us through everything


By Phil and Mary Jones, 21 October 2022

We had been looking to buy our perfect French home for the best part of five years. Jacqui Reddin-Williams was fundamental in our success in finding our dream home! Due to the circumstance surrounding the property, this was not a straight forward purchase. There were many twists and turns and we were so happy that Jacqui was there to hold our hands and guide us through the process. It would be true to say that without Jacqui we would have moved on to other properties and would not have been able to “live the dream”.

Thank you Jacqui!

Exceptional service from Eric Garnier


By David and Lisa Hills, 18 October 2022

10/10… Beaux Villages, we cannot recommend you highly enough. Eric Garnier based in the Monflanquin office has just been exceptional, from our first meeting with him, to completing on our dream French home, he (and his delightful colleagues) has made our purchasing journey run extremely smoothly and we are truly grateful to him for all of his help and patience, an absolute star! We literally cannot thank you enough.

Outstanding professional guidance from David Smethurst


By Roman K, 17 October 2022

When it comes to the purchase of a house in France you don't need a real estate broker. What you need is much more than that: a consultant who accompanies you all the way of a quite complex transaction. From diplomatic mediation between seller and buyer, over to the documentation-crazyness of Franch bureaucrazy, to finally getting water and power supply switched to the new account. We would like to thank David Smethurst of Beaux Villages for his outstanding professional guidance in purchasing our Chateau near LaRochelle. David is not a real estate broker, he is the tusted advisor you are looking for.

Outstanding service


By Beverley Nurse, 16 October 2022

Well what can I say James Rolt you gave an absolutely outstanding service, support and a professional manner throughout the pre and post purchase of our beautiful property in France. We would like to say a massive thankyou for everything you done for us throughout the purchase.
We highly recommend



By Tim Webber, 13 October 2022

Outstanding support given and exceptional communication, you put a lot of energy into this purchase of ours. You showed the upmost professionalism throughout , your knowledge and support was brilliant.

Amazing support from the entire BVI team


By Lisa McGoff, 13 October 2022

Super service by James and his team. We now have our beautiful home in France.

We totally recommend Beaux Villages!

Thank you James & all the team for the help & support throughout the whole process.

Cheers Lisa & Dave

Jacqui has been excellent!


By Sophie Randall, 07 October 2022

Jacqui helped us through every step of the purchase of first French home. She was careful to match us to properties that met our requirements so we made the most of our visits to France.
One we found our special place, Jacqui guided us through the French legal process and was a crucial point of contact and negotiation between us and the vendor. She was always quick to respond to any request. As result of her efforts the sale went through and efficiently and quickly.
Jacqui was so kind and generous once we arrived, helping us get set up with utilities, finding English speaking vets, introducing us to builders. She’s been a real pleasure to work with and has actually made the whole process great fun. When you are chasing a dream it should be enjoyable, and with Jacqui on board, it was.

Amanda found us our dream home


By Elizabeth Gachet, 03 October 2022

I wanted to make a point of mentioning the excellent service I received from Amanda Somerfield at Beaux Villages.
My family and I had been looking for a holiday home in France since last year from England via the internet.
The experiences we got from the different Estate Agents and Consultants were very varied. My parents and I soon noticed after our first interaction with Amanda, that she was "On it" as she was the only Property Consultant that we were always confident would get back to us at her earliest convenience. She has been an excellent communicator and would always work hard on our behalf.
We ended up doing all of the preliminary transactions remotely which could have been a very nerve wracking experience but our virtual hands were held throughout the process by Amanda who took us through each step.
Over a year after we started our communications with Amanda, we finally found our dream French holiday home.  
On the final signing day, Amanda drove for over two hours to be with us, even though she had only arrived back from her own holiday the day before and could have left the final details with her excellent colleague. But she insisted on coming out of her way to come and meet us in person and take us though the final steps to getting our keys.
I am very grateful to have had Amanda on our side with this unique and overwhelming experience and I would thoroughly recommend her as your Independent Prproperty Consultant.
From a very happy customer (Elizabeth Gachet) enjoying the French culture.
