Taking Care of Your Property in The Dordogne France


Property Management, Property Maintenance, Caretaker Service, Garden and Swimming Pool Maintenance.


We are a husband and wife team with 18 years experience in property management, maintenance and renovation. We take the worry out of owning a holiday home in France.


Gardening : Come back to a garden to relax in! We will maintain the garden from Spring until Autumn, mowing the lawn and weeding flower beds, as well as paths and driveways. At the beginning and end of the season, we will carry out necessary pruning and tidying.


Swimming Pool : Opening, closing and cleaning. We will open your pool as soon as the weather warms up and keep it in tip top condition all season, ready for you to enjoy as soon as you arrive on holiday. At the end of the season, we will drain the pumps and filters and make sure the pool is prepared for winter.

If you are thinking of having a swimming pool installed, let us advise you on the best system to install for trouble free and inexpensive maintenance.


Property Inspection : For your own peace of mind, we will inspect your property regularly to make sure no damage has occurred while you have been away. This is particularly important after storms, severe frosts and prolonged periods of heavy rain.

When we have carried out our “Peace-of-Mind” inspection, we will prepare a detailed report of any damage – accompanied by photographs where necessary.

Inspection visits include:

  • Minor Repairs - see below
  • Check for leaks and damp
  • Security checks; doors, windows and shutters
  • Roofs
  • Check alarm systems
  • Heating
  • Electricity
  • Ensure water is turned off
  • Outbuildings
  • Fencing 

Tell us if there is anything else you would like to be checked!


Letter Box Collection : when you are away we can empty the letter box and forward mail to your home address, or we can scan and email to you.


House Opening : We can open up your property before you arrive, switch on the electricity,water,and heating and tidy the garden. Start your holiday on day one!


Minor Repairs : We can do any minor repairs during the inspection visit. For anything more serious, we will contact you immediately.
General Maintenance : Leave us a list of all of those irritating jobs and enjoy your holiday!
Maintenance Contracts : We will maintain your garden and swimming pool so that you can enjoy them and leave the hard work to us. We will carry out regular inspections to make sure that everything is functioning correctly.
Project Management : If you are having building work done and are not familiar with french building systems - or the french language! - we are happy to liaise between you and your builders to make sure that work is carried out to your requirements. We can report back to you weekly with photos so that you can keep in touch with progress. We also know what work should cost in this area and can advise you on any quotes!
Local representative : We take the strain for you.. We can advise you on reliable local suppliers and come shopping with you if you like!
Administration : The nightmare which is french paperwork need not worry you. Just scan and send to us anything you don't understand and we will advise you on how to proceed.

Contact us and let us help you manage your property.
