We used Bagnoles immobilier too, Christian was really good, but doesn't speak any English (or says he doesn't).

Bagnoles is a lovely town & it's a very pretty area (but then I'm biased!).

If you need help translating there, give me a shout (free of course!).

Hi Ian,

Thanks very much for your information.  We will be contacting these people.  We are planning a trip over soon. Hopefully they will be able to help us.  I hope you will be very happy with your new property.  Do you have any children? What will you be doing to pay the bills as they say?

I will let you know what happens.

Try Bagnoles Immobilier.  They are really helpful.  Bagnoles de l'Orne is in the southern Orne (on the borders of the Mayenne) and it is a real tourist town so may well be what you are looking for to supprt a B & B .....Good luck!

You could try Cabinet Marc Trouverie in Vire, he actually has english members of staff.

Or Richard at Vire Immobilier by the Round a bout in the centre of town.

Happy hunting!!!

Sorry to tell you, but you ought to know that there is already an English family running a fishing lake and trout farm near Lisieux.

I am in the Calvados, and if you are looking around here,could interpret for you, if you like. No charge - just like meeting new people.
