This year seems to have flown by and here we are sending out our last newsletter of 2013. The days were dry and sunny until a few days ago but Christmas is around the corner and our thoughts inevitably turn to festive preparations.

With this in mind, we have included an article on the wonderful sweet wines that are produced in the region. The many different styles offer a wide choice of wines for aperitif, or to drink with seasonal specialties such as foie gras or those gorgeous deserts, cakes and cheeses that are often part of the Christmas menu. It is also the time of year when olives are harvested and this very ancient Mediterranean tradition is explored in our other article. They also go well as an aperitif with a lovely glass of 'vins doux naturels' !

We have selected some of the most interesting properties that have recently reduced their asking price and have featured a couple of properties that really shouldn't be missed. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like any further information on these, or any of our properties on our website Further we would like to inform you about some tax changes applying in January 2014.

As usual, we hope you enjoy this latest edition and please feel free to let us know your views - we are constantly developing our service to you following your feedback.
