So glad we chose Beaux Villages!
Testimonial for Edite Hill:
Edite our agent, was extremely helpful right from the start. She sent us the property details and answered a multitude of questions, recommended a local hotel for us to stay at for our viewing, set up and attended the notaire with us and was always on hand to help us. This was often outside of regular office hours.
In a process that was extremely stressful it was reassuring to have Edite who could speak English and French. Knowing that we were only in France for the weekend, she gave up her Sunday morning to prepare our paperwork to start buying our dream property!
We can’t imagine purchasing through a private sale and we are glad we chose Beaux Villages.

I have every confidence in recommending BVI
Testimonial for Jemma Simkins, Dirk Renders and Marion Guyot:
My first contact with Beaux Villages was some time after putting my house and surrounding land on the market. An agent had put a " For Sale " sign at the end of the lane and the local agent of Beaux Villages called in to see me.
She explained that my property was the type that they frequently handled and asked if I would give them the opportunity to market it.
When I agreed she inspected the house thoroughly and took photographs inside and out, following this with a very detailed questionnaire. I was impressed by her thoroughness.
Beaux Villages' agent brought several interested potential buyers to view the house and surroundings and then one with a firm offer of the asking price.
A substantial amount of additional information was requested for the first legal agreement (the Compromis de Vente) and so I visited their regional office where I met both the manager and the lady who collated the information ready for the Notaire to prepare the agreement.
The usual complications and minor queries arose at this stage, but again I was impressed with the competence and ability that the staff exercised.
In due course in conjunction with the Notaire, they helped to prepare the final sales agreement the (Acte de Vente) and the sale was completed.
I therefore have every confidence in recommending Beaux Villages to handle the sale of similar country properties.

Thank you for your help!
Testimonial for Janine Wood,
Firstly I want to thank you for the time, knowledge and professionalism from yourself in regard to our search for the right property for us.
You also helped me identify some areas/ villages nearby that I liked more than others. Also although I did look in a couple of other Immobilier windows, you were the only person I arranged to see properties with. Just the feeling that you understood what we were looking for.
I cannot thank you enough for your time and hope to visit again when we come back to buy our home. I wish you good luck in your ventures.

Delighted with the service
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 great start!
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!
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.

Couldn't have asked for more
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.

Sincere thanks and appreciation
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.

Can't thank Lisa enough!
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.

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.
