We solve the search problems faced by foreign buyers
Time consuming online searching
Searching for the right property requires a lot of time and can quickly be draining. Furthermore, online ads don’t display enough information to know if a property is suitable and the offer displayed is rarely up-to-date. online ads don’t display enough information to know
Get a shortlist of properties with detailed portfolios
We lead the search for you and find properties for sale matching your requirements. Each suitable property is presented with a portfolio providing you with more information than an online ad.
Properties flaws hidden in property surveys
Property surveys identify any issue to a prospective buyer (asbestos, lead, termites, dry rot, insulation, gas and electrical installations, flooding). They are drafted in French and sellers won’t review these documents with you by fear of a no sale.
Review of the surveys and complete report
We collect the surveys from the seller, check their legal validity and fully review them in order to identify any property flaws. A complete report in English is then handed over to you. Properties with flaws are excluded from the shortlist.
Limited offer searching only online
We give you access to 100% of the properties for sale
By searching locally and exploring all the search avenues, we offer you a wider range of properties matching your requirements.
Defective & overpriced online properties
A property lands online if local people don’t want to buy it. Either the property is overpriced or it is defective (bad property surveys). Therefore, foreign buyers are targeted as they may be less aware about local prices and may struggle to understand the surveys to identify the property condition.
See only the best value for money properties
The properties we find for you are guaranteed flawless and fairly priced. We also pay attention to urban plannings to ensure that no new constructions nearby will come to spoil your property.
And we make you avoid legal pitfalls
Estate agents are not on your side
They exclusively work for sellers and therefore only protect their interests when drafting legal documents that they then ask you to sign.
We protect your interests
With us, you have the opportunity to take the lead on the legal side of your purchase and submit to the seller buyer friendly legal documents protecting your interests.
Paying the seller's asking price
Negotiating and forcing the seller to reduce his price down requires a lot of knowledge that you may not have.
Buy at a better price
Using our negotiation skills, we are usually able to obtain a significant price reduction (depending on the property, competition and seller’s situation) and make you go around any 6-10% agency fee.
Language barrier & legal documents
As a foreign buyer, there are huge risks in signing French legal documents when you don’t speak French fluently. Trusting the agent with clauses inserted in the sales contract is not a good idea.
Translation of legal documents
We translate the legal documents to be signed in order for you to have a full understanding.
Unsuitable purchase structure
If you let agents lead the legal side of your purchase, they will use a basic purchase structure when drafting the sales contract while an other legal framework may be more beneficial for you.
Set up the best purchase structure
Our support also includes optional features
Utilities contracts setup
Property insurance setup

They chose us to lead their project in Dordogne
Dordogne Property Connection are really knowledgeable about the local property market and extremely efficient.
Not only do they take the stress out of property hunting but visiting the houses selected for us was really enjoyable. The support throughout the buying process was also priceless and enabled us to have a full understanding of all French legal documents before signing.
We were particularly impressed with the wide range of great properties Dordogne Property Connection found for us.
This was exactly what we wanted; the possibility to see nice properties put on sale locally which were not advertised online.
As we were a bit worried about buying a property abroad, their legal support was also very important to us. This was really reassuring especially when signing legal documents drafted in French.
