From purchase to project completion in 6 months…

Created: Wednesday, 03 July 2019 Written by Mark Jansen

Last month we completed our latest project in the beautiful village of Monpazier in South West France. It is a nice cosy house but required renovations inside and out.

In January, a couple purchased the property with a view to renting the 3 bedroom house as a gite for the 2019 summer season and appointed Jansen Property the following month. This may sound ambitious – however we are proud to say we have not only delivered the project successfully but the gite is booking up for this summer with reservations already secured.

Over the past few weeks we have completed internal decorations, external painting, installed an air conditioning system and fitted new curtains and soft furnishings, amongst other work. The painting and decoration went smoothly until a leak was discovered, requiring an insurance claim. We resolved the matter quickly liaising with the insurance company and repainted the area affected. Job done!


The property benefits from a nice pool surrounded by trees and a garden providing the perfect spot for relaxing. We recommended the replacement of the pool surround as the slabs looked old and tired. We have laid beautiful Travertine tiles to provide a more luxurious feel and the pool now looks stunning....

We are delighted to say that our clients – who own properties across the world – are extremely happy with the 5 weeks reserved so far – and no doubt more to come. We thank them for their confidence in Jansen Property.

If you have a project – large or small – that you need help to make a reality, please get in touch. We can help you with planning, manage all of the artisans and other professionals working on the property and our aim is always to deliver on schedule and on budget.

What clients say

Colin & Wendy Palmer
With only a limited amount of time to spend at our house in France each year, we wanted to ensure our visits would be as perfect as possible (weather permitting). Contacting Mark was without doubt the best move we have made since moving in last year and he has enabled us to achieve our goal. The pool is always in top condition and since Mark arranged the installation of a heater, it's also wonderfully warm. He has liaised with the pool manufacturer to sort out a few minor niggles which would have been difficult for us to do from the UK. More recently, Mark guided us through the planning stages of an additional building and undertook the project management using reputable local artisans. When security became an issue, he introduced us to an extremely competant electrian who quickly installed outside lighting. It's no exaggeration to say that Mark has taken away all the stress of being absent owners. Nothing appears too much trouble for him and by way of an...
