Our agency is based in Bourganeuf, a town in the Limousin with a population of 3,500. Limoges is about 45 minutes from here, and it is accessible by, among others, a budget airline from Stansted.
This region is mainly rural, the main activities being beef cattle farming and forestry. Tourism is just taking off. It is known for its quiet and tranquil surroundings, and its low levels of crime and pollution, probably due to the low population density (one tenth of the UK ). Saying that, the landscape is beautiful and always different - and that isn't just our opinion!. With its hills, forests and meadows, it can be compared in some aspects to Canada , or even some parts of England a long long time ago. There is no shortage of space giving a real sense of freedom, or lakes and rivers to fish. We also have the biggest man-made lake in France - Vassivière (one thousand hectares). In the old towns of Aubusson known for its tapestries, Limoges (pottery) or Saint Leonard , one can feel the history.
Opened in September 2001, our agency, Cendrillon Immobilier, works hard to help foreign people who want to buy property here, whatever the purpose. We listen carefully to our customers to understand their needs (so we do not waste your time) and provide a choice of suitable and adapted properties. After you have made your choice, we assist you all the way through the purchase process. After it is completed, we have an after sale service to help you to overcome all the problems you might encounter in relation with paperwork and other aspects such as renovation and purchase of items for the property for instance.
Our staff is a team of seven people all bilingual in English.
