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.

Testimonial for Bruno Vanhenis:


Thank you very much for today and for your professional structure of seeing both the area and the different types of properties available. We have just a couple to view and then we will be making a decision. The last house is a real contender for us. Again thanks for showing us the area and please do send this to your boss as evidence of our delight with the way you looked after us. True customer care in a action!

Kind Regards, JS

Testimonial for Richard Stenner:

My wife and I have recently completed on the purchase of a property in Mezieres.

I just wanted to quickly drop you a line to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Richard Stenner who has steered us through what could have been the morass of the French property system.

Absolutely nothing has been too much trouble for Richard and through all our inane questions and repeated queries he has maintained a constant cheery disposition.

Richard has been an absolute credit to your company and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend both Richard and Beaux Villages to any of our family and friends wishing to embark on a similar adventure.

As a business owner I know how infrequently I received positive feedback so I’d really appreciate it if you could please pass on my thanks to Richard for all his hard work.

Merci + Thanks!

Merci à Caroline et son équipe de Lalinde qui nous a aidé à trouvé la maison que nous cherchions. Caroline a su définir notre besoin et nous proposer des biens sans perte de temps et exactement dans l'esprit d notre recherche. MERCI !

We want to thank Caroline and her team in Lalinde as Caroline helped us to find our house. We didn't lose time as she directly showed us the exact sort of houses we were searching for. 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

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”.

Hard working people


By Janet, 13 February 2018

Testimonial for Jacqui Reddin-Williams: Thank you so much to Jacqui for all your help in a successful sale. Beaux Villages have been great, Jacqui is fab, totally dedicated. I also want to add a thank you to Mike Sweetman, Norbert and Lucy, all lovely,hard working people. Try using Beaux Villages and you won't be disappointed !

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.

Thanks and very best regards


By L and I, 25 January 2018

Testimonial for Chris Remnant:

Your agent, Chris Remnant was really great and showed us a lovely house. We have deliberated for some time as to whether to buy the house Chris showed us or another house at the coast, and I'm afraid, the coast won! We have made an offer and had it accepted.

I must say, that we have had a total of three viewing trips, two to the Bordeaux area and recently the one in Languedoc, and have seen some wonderful properties with your fantastic agents. The fact that we have not bought a house we saw with you is not because of lack of effort or enthusiasm, it is because we found the right house which just happened to be listed with another agent!

I would like to thank Mike Sweetman in the Bordeaux region and both Richard Search and Chris Remnant in Languedoc for all their help with our search!

If, in the event, our purchase does not go ahead I will be in touch!

With renewed thanks and very best regards,

I would recommend Beaux Villages
