The tale of buying a French house - by a pair of
green gilled novices
A true story.......
Having previously holiday'd a few times in the
beautiful Midi-Pyrenees, back in August 2015, we spontaneously decided to nip
over to France for a) a quick mini break and b) to view a property we'd seen on
Before we left the UK, we emailed Anthony and
Gillie with our basic wish list (budget, number of bedrooms, type of location
etc) so they'd have an idea of what we might be looking for in advance
As our plane took off from Gatwick, I turned to
Felicia and reminded her why we were making this trip and, in my most masterly
voice, clearly stated 'We will definitely NOT be making any offers on this trip
or buying a house......so don't get ANY ideas!'
On arriving at their offices in Caylus, we were
greeted by Gillie who spent the next hour or so, gently (and skilfully)
interviewing us, teasing out little clues that would subsequently help her
marry our requirements/ dreams with what they might have on their books.
The next three days, she took us to view a total of
seven properties. Everyone of which was lovely in their own right but none set
the fireworks off..........except one!
Having never owned a property abroad before or
expecting to feel like this, we were somewhat stumped/ shocked and surprised.
So we slept on it and went back for a second
viewing the next day.....
..... The rest, as they say, is history.
Anthony and Gillie held our hands throughout the
whole process, definitely going above and beyond what one would normally expect
with their invaluable advice and support.
And so in mid December 2015 we completed on our
wonderful, dream French home..
Allez South West France may on paper, be property
agents but trust me, they are so much more than that....
