The key to the successful sale of our home!


By Julia and Brian Jeapes, 02 October 2019

Testimonial for Ginny George:

My name is Julia Jeapes and my husband Brian and I have just (23.9.19.) successfully completed the sale of our house via your company. Having reached this point, we both felt that we had to highlight the excellent work by one of your employees, Ginny George. The sale of our home in France was an emotional decision and so the whole process could have been a very difficult experience for us.

However Ginny was highly professional and was able to answer all our questions and dealt with our concerns in a very effective and efficient way. She was always contactable and responded quickly to all our queries sorting out the inevitable problems along the way. Her interpersonal skills are excellent and her caring and considerate attitude, where she often went the 'extra mile', was an enormous help to both parties. We cannot praise Ginny highly enough she has worked hard, with integrity and empathy. We are both sure that Ginny was key to the successful sale of our home. She is a great ambassador for your company. Please pass on our sincere thanks and gratitude.

We were lucky to have Edite


By Géraldine, 23 September 2019

Myself and my husband spent the earlier part of this year searching for a new home in France.

During this time we relied heavily on Beaux Villages as we found you the most efficient and professional agents operating in France. We were lucky to have Edite as our main contact and would like to say thanks for her services; she ensured she knew our particular requirements and put an exceptional amount of time and effort in to finding a suitable home for us.

Many thanks once again.


Angella worked hard and was very supportive


By Carole Dhanoon, 23 September 2019

Testimonial for Angella Turner

Acting as our agent Angella located and introduced us to an excellent, English-speaking notaire and attended every meeting during the sale process. She pre-warned us of certain protocols involved in buying multiple parcels of land and was instrumental in correcting an error in the parcel identification.

Angella worked hard and was very supportive, emotionally and practically. She acted in lieu of the notaire for the vendors and ensured all paperwork was forthcoming and correct.


It was lovely to meet you

Testimonial for Caroline Sweeney

I just want to thank you for such a great day house hunting with you last Friday. You were so helpful! Every house we viewed on the day had something different to offer.

We can not thank you enough for your help in us finding our home in France. Your professional guidance in helping us fine tune our search by finding the things that we really needed to prioritise moving forward.

We have just got back home and now have to put more thought in to our next visit. We look forward to seeing any houses that you think might meet our needs.

Thanks again and again it was lovely easy day, and you really put us at ease. It was lovely to meet you.



Very grateful!

Testimonial for Anne Kemp-Reynolds:

Just a note to say a big THANK YOU for all of your help and advice over the last few months. We really appreciate it.

Best wishes Caroline and Dan

A big thank you to Beaux Villages


By Nick & Gill, 20 August 2019

Testimonial for Geraldine Millet and Emma Waddington.

Having sold up in the south of France we were prepared to bank our euros in France and wait out 2 years until Brexit was sorted.

And then we came to Montmorillon for 5 days relaxation and suddenly fell in love with the town. We decided to tentatively view a few properties just to get a feel of what was available and at what prices, but had no plans to buy at this time.

Beaux Villages was in fact the last agent we visited in the town (so 2 others had the opportunity to sell us the house we eventually bought, but hadn't taken the opportunity to show it to us).

Geraldine listened to what our requirements were and saw I was getting enthusiastic about one (outside the town) in the Beaux Villages window. Unfortunately, it was already under offer but she searched through her books and came up with a similar one that was in the town. We felt on first viewing it was perfect for us in so many ways. We are so grateful that Geraldine showed us the property. We are finding as each day passes more ways that this is the absolutely perfect house for us.

We did a second viewing 2 days later with Emma and just knew we had to make an offer (despite the Brexit uncertainty). Emma handled the offer negotiations for us and it was a tense period for us both, as we had a finite budget of euros available from the sale of our property. She did a superb job and concluded the negotiations well within our budget, and even took the time to call us on Easter Sunday to tell us the good news.

The period that follows the offer being accepted to completion is always difficult, but Emma was always available to smoothly facilitate the process to its' conclusion. Again, we are so grateful to have the ongoing support and even after we had moved in, Emma supported us in getting the utilities sorted.

You hear so many stories about the hit and miss experiences of working with estate agents in France, but we have had both an excellent experience when we sold, and an excellent experience when we bought again.

Many thanks to you both. Sorry Geraldine, but Emma ate all the cakes that we bought for you as a thank you.

Thank you for your support

Testimonial for Carola van Aswegen

Thank you to Carola for negotiating the sale with our buyers and for all her hard work guiding us through the sale. Also for keeping us regularly informed and aiding our buyers to visit the property while we were in the UK.

She made a worrying time very easy. As long as BV employ people as talented as Carola they will always be top choice for property moves.

Helen is a credit to your business.


By BJ, 02 August 2019

Testimonial for Helen Dawson

I recently contacted Beaux Villages as I was looking to purchase a property in France. A lovely lady called Helen Dawson subsequently contacted me and arranged for me to view several properties. Even though we had no car and were staying in Rochechouart Helen arranged to pick us up and drove us to the properties in the Dordogne. Throughout the whole day Helen was extremely warm and friendly and made the whole day very enjoyable.

Helen is a credit to your business.

Thank you all


By Xavier & Samia, 14 June 2019

After years of search we discovered Beauxvillages who enabled us to find our home in less than 2 weeks . Thank to all people we met. From Gregory who let us know Beauxvillages, Vanessa who directed us to Geraldine who understood our needs and made a very good filtering in our researchs. And then to Carola who proposed us one house who matched our needs. This first visit was done with respect of sellers intimity. We had the joy to understand that this first visit would finally be our last because it was the good one. And also to Stéphanie who took care of the compromis and is impressive in its skill domains. And Kate who is in charge of the administrative part, and is the link between us, the notaire and the sellers. Thank you all.

Testimonial for Anne Kemp-Reynolds:

Thanks so much for your help. I appreciated your no bull**** attitude! I also really appreciated all the work you did trying to find something that isn't so easy to find.

Testimonial for Jacqui Reddin-Williams

It was a real pleasure to work with you. We know that we wouldn't be where we are without your support and your body of knowledge. We now have spent a couple of days and nights here at the mill-house and we really love the property.
Thanks again for your flawless guidance through the buying process and we too hope we will see you again soon. Best regards & enjoy a relaxing break!

Great work and good team

Testimonial for Abel and Victoria

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team, Abel and Victoria, for the great work you have done. Being so far away is very difficult, but I am delighted that my family have had the good fortune to have such a tenacious and dedicated team help them achieve a good result. Thank you all.

Excellent service from Shannon Daly


By Jackie & Alan, 30 April 2019

We would highly recommend Shannon as she worked tirelessly searching with us for a property. She fully understood our brief and showed us properties we had not been aware of and was a mine of information regarding the properties and regions we searched... Shannon and the support staff at Beaux Villages were exceptional.

Brilliant service from Shannon Daly


By Brian and Debbie Attrill, 01 April 2019

Shannon was able to take us to properties that met our needs from the very start-she understood exactly what we were looking for.

The whole process of buying was made very easy and comfortable as we really felt that Shannon went over and above for us.

Any emails were answered very quickly - on days that Shannon was probably not even meant to be working!! She also handled the setting up of services and guided us through the whole process. Cant recommend Shannon enough !!!!

A credit to the company...

Testimonial for Jemma Simkins:

Just sold our lovely house and expertly helped every step of the way by Jemma Simkins, she's a credit to the company. We will always recommend Beaux Villages to anyone we know that wants to buy a property in France.

Excellent standard


By Brenda Metcalfe, 27 February 2019

Testimonial for Karen Cankalis:

I recently sold my house with you with Karen Cankalis as my contact. I want to comment on the standard of her service which was absolutely excellent. The house sold within a couple of days of going on the market, the photos she took were extremely professional which obviously worked. Throughout the whole procedure Karen was there for me during what would have been a very stressful time. I have personally thanked her but wanted to let you know my opinions too. Incidentally I also used SMART for my money transfer to the UK who were also very helpful and efficient.

I have already recommended your company to many of my friends of whom I am sure many will contact you.

Thank you once again and kind regards

Brenda Metcalfe

Wonderful service, thoroughly recommend!

Testimonial for Anna Stewart

Many thanks to Anna for all her help with our purchase of our wonderful little house in the Dordogne. She is incredibly patient and kept us apprised all throughout the process (which grew arms and legs) from first viewings to finally receiving the keys. Anna's involvement didn't end there - she's also assisted with transfer of utilities etc which is so helpful. Cannot recommend enough!
