Welcome to our Easter Newsletter

NOW more than ever is a great time to buy a property here in France. Prices are low compared to the high of 2008, the market looks likely to pick up very soon and exchange rates are interesting too. Further, buying NOW offers you the advantage of being able to enjoy the property for your summer holidays!
A real win win!

As we have recently celebrated Easter, it is interesting to look at the similarities and differences of traditions practiced in France and English speaking countries - although the theme of chocolate doesn't seem to vary between countries. We are also featuring the lovely Restaurant, Hotel and Spa 'La Maison d'Uzes' located in the centre of the town, in a renovated mansion house full of history and charm. Its restaurant, La table d'Uzes, has recently been awarded a Michelin star.

Don't hesitate to get in touch if you would like any further information on these, or any of our properties on our website
