this article suggests that if it is clearly a hidden vice, the sale can be annuled or the seller must pay to cover the hidden problems. however it also seems that they can sign  the acte and include a no garantie to hidden problems.

I see from your profile you live in Meneac, it might be worth your while to pop into Le Manoir at La Croix de L'Iff Mohon and ask Ruth (who runs the bar) about the french lawyer she has had there a couple of times giving out free advice. I'm not saying he/she will give advice free of charge but I am assuming as the drop in session was held in a bar frequented mainly by brits that this lawyer has a good grasp of english. Hope this is helpful to you.

Do you have either legal insurance with your house policy or a very large bank balance.If you have neither then you need to think very carefully before embarking on court action

Did you not read the diagnostic reports or did they not reveal these problems?

 When you sign the Acte de Vente there is a clause stating that you accept the property in the condition it is in on the day of sale.

So I think you may have an uphill task.
