This is our guide to buying a house in France and then renovating it. We tell our story of how we did it and what happened to us on our way. We start at the start with an internet search, visiting France and viewing properties, buying with the help of an estate agent and moving in. Let us hold your hand if you are about to embark on a similar adventure. Itas going to be great fun and even better if you are a little bit prepared for what is going to happen to you. This is where we can help! Once you have your keys you will start the job of bringing the house up to scratch and making it comfortable for you. Here again we help as we describe our renovations in detail. French words are always going to be difficult but we include two dictionaries for your use. The first contains words to do with houses, words like abbonnementab a direct-debit. The second dictionary contains over 650 DIY words for materials and tools which will be essential when you are in your local builderas merchants.
