To Lauren and all of the team, we can't thank you enough for all of your help and support. From our very first viewing to the day we finally got the keys to our new french home you were fantastic!! Nothing was ever a bother and you always answered our millions of questions with great insight and great patience!! Having you as our agents gave us such peace of mind and you went above and beyond. The help in sorting amenities, finding a bank with english speaking staff, advising us on house insurance and money transfer companies was invaluable. It was a pleasure to work with you and we honeslty can't recommend you highly enough. Great team!! thank you so much. with very kindest regards Mark and Dianne Slater 19/08/2019

Hi Elaine, Thanks for letting us know straightaway about the completion. And thanks to you and all the team for getting us to this position. I realise it's been a difficult and protracted transaction and virtually everyone in your office has been involved in some way or another. Success in the end though and we are very grateful. Hopefully, the new owners will be as delighted with the house as we have been. Kind regards Chris and Barbara

New report just released from The Connexion France publication

Life expectancy in France is growing but “traditional” nuclear families are becoming less common, according to a new report by national statistics bureau Insee.

The 2019 report, published this week, is based on census data, and “allows us to understand the diverse and changing nature of the population of France”, according to bureau L'Institut National de la Statistique et des Études Économiques (Insee).
Four key trends emerged from the report.
Life expectancy is growing
Life expectancy in France for women is one of the highest in the EU; only Spain is ahead.
Women in France now live on average to age 85.6, and men to age 79.7, the report found. In the space of 10 years, men’s life expectancy in France has risen by two years, and women’s by 1.2; and over the past five years, there has been a rise of 0.5 and 0.2 years respectively.
Insee said: “Life expectancy continues to progress, but the gains have slowed down.”
In comparison, in 2017, average life expectancy in the EU was at 83.5 for women, and 78.3 for men. In Spain, this is was at 86.1 for women, the only country to be ahead of France.
Yet, life expectancy for men in France is slightly below the EU average. Nine countries are ahead.
“Traditional” families are becoming less common - 
Insee found that families made up of “a [married] couple, with children born from their union (or adopted together), all sharing the same home” were becoming less common.
It said: “Between 2011 and 2018, “traditional” families fell by -2 points, whereas single-parent families grew by 2 points. [In 2011] half of these families were “traditional”, with two married parents; in 2018, these types of families are no longer the majority.”
These families represent just 45% of the total, the report found.
It said: “Couples are less and less likely to be married (72% in 2011, 67% in 2018).”
