George Sand, who stayed a number of times at Boussac, which was the setting for her novel Jeanne (1836) described the village as highly picturesque and its château as being"elegant and charming in its simplicity."

It was the château of Boussac which housed the famous tapestries of The Lady and the Unicorn which can be admired today at the Musée de Cluny in Paris.

Boussac is ideal for visiting localites famous for their local produce : it is situated within two and a half hours of the Burgundy vineyards, three hours of those of Bordeaux, two hours from areas famous for foie gras and truffles, two hours away from the cheese-producing areas of Auvergne and two hours from the Loire Valley.

Boussac, which lies on the touristic circuit known as the Route Richard Coeur de Lion (Richard the Lionheart),and the region of Aquitaine, have numerous historical links with English culture and have attracted a large number British residents who have established many local associations.

Buying a property on the open market

If you are buying a property in any part of France, we can help you throughout the legal process of French property purchase from the initial contract to completion.

Although you may be tempted to do as much as possible yourself, particularly in terms of negotiation, it is often advisable to obtain assistance at a very early stage in order to obtain the best deal in terms of price and also in order to spot any problems which may make the purchase inadvisable.

Buying a property at auction

Buying a French property at auction can be a way of acquiring a property cheaply but it does involve hidden expenses and it is therefore important to understand how the system works. Our lawyers are able to assist you through throughout the process: see the section Property Auctions.

- We liaise with any French estate agent involved.
- We assist you in negotiations, including negotiations on price with the seller.
- Although final conveyances of land in France require the intervention of a Notary (notaire), our lawyers are usually substantially involved in reviewing and drafting all documents to be used in the process, from the initial agreement to sell, up to the final conveyance, particularly where the sale forms part of a wider commercial transaction or raises other issues.
- We advise on how and when to apply for mortgage finance and how to protect yourself if you fail to obtain finance for your purchase.
- We will provide you with written reports at all stages.

Property searches

Although there are many agency and other websites advertising French properties the sale, which can give you a good feel for the French property market, our lawyers are able to provide a property search service, acting as agents within the legal framework ensuring compliance with the professional conduct rules governing avocats.

We can provide details of service on request.

The service involves discussing your project with you, in terms of the sort property you are looking for, how you intend to use the property, your budget and the area of France you are interested in.

We are then able to look for suitable properties either through our own sources or through estate agents. We can then assist you during the negotiation process and throughout the process of purchase, down to final completion.


In accordance with the professional conduct rules for French avocats, all our lawyers are authorised to act as agents for real estate transactions, both for the purchase and sale of real estate.

- You can instruct us to sell your property. Our commission will also include all legal fees for accompanying you during the sale process (excluding the fees of the Notary) and will not be higher than those of an estate agent.
- We will advise you regarding tax issues.
- We will help you regarding all documentation you need to provide to the French Notary (surveys, proof of ownership, proof of identity…).
- If you have to sell your property as a consequence of a divorce we do not have to be instructed by both parties in order to find buyers.
- If you are selling an apartment we will help you to obtain all necessary authorisations from the assembly of the co-owners.
- We will help you from the initial contract to completion and until you have received the net proceeds of sale.
