Lucioles, if you navigate to www.lapeyre.fr you will find a good selection of double glazed windows in various woods, plastic and/or aluminium. Look in the Menuiseries section. They do a service called 'Reno' which allows them to fit new windows into old frames. We looked at this method for our villa, but in our case it came out too expensive. So we decided to knock out the old frames and fit all new. That allowed us to buy only the standard sized windows & frames, and fortunately they all fitted in well. A good window fitter can remove old frames without doing much damage. Lapeyre has fitters available for this kind of work so a visit to one of their showrooms and a discussion is advised. Independent fitters can also do this work, so look around for a recommendation and a quote. Fitting double glazing may also have the effect of lowering your income tax. Good luck.
