    Discuss an offer ?

    If this or other properties are of potential serious interest, you may wish to speak in confidence and without obligation or commitment with a sympathetic senior negotiator to discuss what flexibility there may be in the price.

    Getting the right deal can be a question of good timing and we have that information.

    Whatever you read in the press, it is simply not true that one can apply a percentage discount to the price of any property we like the look of. And it is a real shame to fall in love with a property that is beyond what you wish to spend or can afford.

    To arrange a callback, please email in-confidence@beauxvillages.com
