Searching for a holiday home in the Languedoc?

Well perhaps we can help ...................

Having spent a year searching for the right property in the right place, we got to know our way around the area but even now we still come across a undiscovered gem of a place or area of outstanding beauty.
We searched all the areas for the right place before we finally chose Limoux, which offers us all year round pleasure and a small income.

Update Twenty years on we are still finding little gems some just a few miles away from Limoux and some in other parts of the Languedoc, which is now part of Occitania.

Obvilously the effects of BREXIT has changed the political & social background BUT this is our home and we intend to stay. However you should consider all the implications before considering a permanent move or opportunties to visit.

Our story
The house search started in Argeles sur Mer (Pyranees-Orientale) in the south west corner of the Languedoc and spread all the way up to Carcassonne.
Visiting places where even the locals had not been our search was relentless.   We visited rock piles which the Flintstones would have called home to the other end of the scale i.e. homes fit for Kings.

The purchase process once explained is really very simple and far less stressful than buying in England. There are savings to be made if you haggle on the price and of course if you are purchasing outright use a currency exchange such as Currencies UK

If you need a mortgage bypass the many consultants & UK Banks by going directly to Britline (English speaking and part of Credit Agricole. One of the largest banks in France) and save yourself around a £1000,00.
We suggest you opt for a fixed term mortgage for the entire loan period typically 20 years. It's cheaper than a variable! Remember you have to compensate for the exchange rate on all transactions and you only want to deal with one variable at a time. It also gives you the option of downpaying the capital when finances allow.
This was an option we exploited and had the good fortune of paying for our house in just over 10 years.

We finally bought our home in September 2004 and set to work furnishing, decorating and refurbishing the place, in a style we liked whilst still appealing to our potential rental guests
Much of the work we did ourselves and some we had help with* such as:

Re-decorating the whole house;
Updating the main bathoom and installing a second bathroom;
Replacing the kitchen;
Extending the patio;
Additional external and internal wiring;
Converting the large garage into living space with separate cinema and underfloor heating;*
Construction of sun deck and storage area;*

The only job that was exclusively carried out by others was the installation of a wood burning stove and central heating system.

As you can see, we have done a lot over the years. All in all we have not experienced any moments of difficulty and certainly no regrets during our whole quest to find and create our new home in the sun.

Living in the centre of the Grail Quest region we know that we have finally found our Grail.

Now we are ready to pass on our knowledge and experience, to you. Thinking of having a house built or updated and need an experienced Project Manager overseeing the process or have some work carried out. Look no further, get in touch! How we can help.

We can arrange your accommodation at either our property or elsewhere.
Arrange transport and escort you escorted around the area.
We are happy to guide you through the whole buying process.
We can tell you where to get the best deals on furnishings and DIY materials
Suggest what you need to bring with you to save money. Paint, beds, etc, etc and what can be sourced locally to set up your dream home.
