About us

mark sandraMark and Sandra

It was not a difficult decision when my wife, Sandra, and I decided to move here in our early twenties.I had a business in Holland for a few years, but even from the age of 16 I dreamt of working in France after spending many happy holidays there.

Today, I can safely say I am well integrated into French life and have a solid understanding of how things work here.

We have found ourselves well respected within our community, which has served us well, not least because we are able to speak four languages (English, French, Dutch and German). We have the business mentality of the Dutch combined with a confident, hands-on spirit.

France is a great place to nurture my passion for the outdoors. If I'm not spending time sailing on the ocean, I enjoy taking my four wheel drive down to the mountains with the kids, or friends, on camping excursions to explore the many peaceful and secluded areas France has to offer. We’d be happy to share our trips with you!

gardenerOur team

We pride ourselves on the quality of our service to clients at all times.

We always work with local artisans that are qualified, registered and insured. My wife, Sandra, works in the office managing all enquiries and scheduling the work that needs to be carried out.

We have Steve, our experienced pool technician who, even with all his knowledge and expertise, still gets additional training when it comes to new technologies. 

Bertrand is responsible for the ground works and is multi-functional in his ability to deliver tasks. Bertrand will take on any odd jobs and is also happy to lend an extra pair of hands during the high season.

As for myself, I manage and oversee all the properties and ensure that all the work meets the quality and standard we've set ourselves, whether it's a maintenance job, a renovation project or additional repair work. I also love to jump in and get invovled hands-on.

The most satisfying part for me is problem solving for people. It means our clients can simply focus on their holiday and enjoy this precious time with family or friends. My goal is to enable people to enjoy their (sometimes very little) time here and create the ‘wow effect’ for when they arrive. It’s the first impression that counts, after all!

We love doing what we do and hope we can help you to enjoy the time that you spend here.

What clients say

Testimonial by Rob & Marion Guthrie
We have been working with Mark for nearly five years now and have the utmost faith in his capabilities. He is trustworthy, proactive, self motivated about his business. Living on the other side of the world, we were recently unable to visit our house for three years, yet we knew it was in the capable hands of Mark. He kept an eye on everything and if there was ever a problem, he would email us straight away explaining the problem, attaching photos if necessary and a quote to fix it. This made the entire process simple and we knew that Mark would ensure that the job was well done. After three years away, we returned to our home and were delighted to see it had been perfectly maintained – thanks entirely to Mark. We have no hesitation in recommending the services of Jansen Entretien.
