Settling-in Services

You have signed on the dotted line and put your initials on literally hundreds of pages in the notaire’s office. You have been handed several sets of keys and set off to open your new front door – and the champagne !

Congratulations – you are now the owner of a fabulous property in the South of France !

You now need a friendly face and someone who speaks French who knows how to change all the utility bills into your name, set up the house insurance, advise on builders, plumbers, electricians, gardeners and pool maintenance companies…. Where do you start to find a reliable cleaner ? How do you get a French mobile phone ? Open a bank account ? Who do you call to put up some shelves ? Make some curtains ?

Côte d’Azur Villas in Valbonne has the perfect service to help you settle in to your new home. Our management team have years of experience of life on the Cote d’Azur. We can help you choose the best phone subscription for your needs, a reliable internet service, and the water, electricity and gas contracts best suited to your new home.

Our team includes an insurance expert, a handyman to help do all those little jobs around the house, a housekeeper with a little black book of cleaners’ numbers, and an English chartered surveyor with plenty of experience in managing house improvements and extensions.
