Property Search

If you’ve ever dreamt of a french property with a sea view, a home with a lake or a bolt-hole by the river to watch the world go by, here is a selection of properties that will offer some food for thought.  Our first selection of properties proved so popular they've all sold.  Here are our favourite properties by the water this month....


A recent study from the University of Exeter has shown the full extent of the emotional and physical benefits of living by the water.  The perfect tonic to the scrabble of daily life, waterside properties hold particular appeal for people looking for an active retirement as living by the water encourages a more active lifestyle as well inspiring time to think and reflect.  Not to mention an ever changing view, plenty of wildlife to observe and a cooling place to dip your feet on a hot summers’ day.


We have selected some of our best waterside properties in France:  There’s a beautiful french property with a lake in the Dordogne, a successful gîte business by a river in a village house, a lovely lakeside cottage in the Vendée, a Brittany bolt-hole that's great for walking, a Normandy house that really makes the most of every opportunity to sit down and watch the world go by, a magical house with swimming and fishing lake in the south of France and a beachfront apartment with stunning Mediterranean views.
