Covering All of France

We travel extensively and cover all of France. We have worked on projects as far afield as Brittany in the northwest of France to Bouche de Rhone in the south. We love our work and have the good fortune to meet many charming and interesting people from all parts of the world who, wisely, choose to re-locate to France.

The most rewarding part of our job is to know that through our technical expertise and knowledge we are able to revive and at times, literally, save some beautiful and fascinating old buildings.
