Laroca Immobilier - bringing you exceptional service since 2000

When you choose an estate agent to help you find and buy a home abroad, there's a certain amount of trust involved. You can't always be in your chosen area. So, the agency you choose takes on a lot of responsibility. They have to get to know you well enough to understand exactly what you want from your holiday home, and to undertake many legal duties too. It goes without saying, then, that you need an experienced agent. You need one who knows the region, the towns, the customs and the people. And, if you're buying in the glorious Roussillon area (which roughly corresponds to the Pyrénées-Orientales), or on the stunning island of Corsica, the agent you need is Laroca. Charles and his team have been supplying an exceptional service to home buyers here since 2000, and meet all your criteria.

A distinct advantage

Of course, Laroca has a huge advantage over its rivals. Firstly, the locations in which it operates are among the most beautiful in France. Not only this, but both Roussillon and Corsica are lesser known to the public at large than similarly beautiful parts of the country, so they are less populated, less manic in summer and less expensive. Compare, for example, the properties on the agency's books in Roussillon with those for sale on the Riviera. And yet, anyone who spends time in the Roussillon region will agree there is nothing the Riviera has that Roussillon can't match!

Ravishing Roussillon

As a location for your holiday home, Roussillon takes some beating. The region (which encompasses the southern parts of Languedoc-Roussillon in the centre south of France) is a bewitching blend of Mediterranean beaches and clear, turquoise seas, soaring snow-tipped mountains, vineyards, cherry trees and picturesque villages. It also benefits from one of the sunniest climates in the country. There's a cosmopolitan capital city, Perpignan, and ease of access too, with budget flights from the UK direct to the city's airport.

The charm of Corsica

The glorious island of Corsica is, for some reason, a little off the radar of many British buyers as yet. However, the French have long appreciated the multiple charms of this stunning Mediterranean island. Rich in history, nature, beauty and with a unique and vibrant culture, Corsica has to be one of France's most idyllic regions.

Why Laroca?

In view of the attractions of the regions of Roussillon and Corsica, you probably haven't taken much persuading to choose them as possible locations for your French property purchase. But you might still want to know why you should choose Laroca to help you make this all important purchase. Both regions have very powerful and unique cultural identities. Corsicans are a proud and strong people, who, whilst welcoming to visitors, can be a little suspicious of outsiders when it comes to doing business. Similarly, in Roussillon, the cultural identity is strongly Catalan. Again, Catalans are fiercely proud of their individuality and traditions, which they see as quite apart from being French. Laroca's agents know how to work with the locals. They have roots in both regions as well as longstanding experience. It makes all the difference.

And, if you need more reasons...

If you're still not quite convinced, consider this. Laroca does so much more for you than most immobiliers. The team know all the best properties and locations. And, they can stand in for you at any stage of the purchase and settling in periods when you have to be in the UK. Charles Retif explains: "Settling into your house in France can be just as challenging for overseas buyers as the actual buying process. If you don't speak great French, don't know the area, don't have contacts with tradesmen or don't know what's available in the area, you need help to make the most of your holidays and your property. What would you do if your washing machine breaks down or a pipe bursts and floods the kitchen, for example? We are on hand at any time to help you through all of this. We'll sort it all out, and get the cleaners in afterwards to leave the property as pristine as you would want. We'll even book you a table at the best local restaurant... and in time, if we become friends (as we have with many of our clients), we might be dining with you!" It's a very special personalised service that really makes a difference. And, it all comes at no extra charge!

Laroca's properties

Laroca deals with properties in all price brackets, and with many different types of property. Most popular are apartments near the coast, in villages such as Collioure, Port Vendres, Banyuls sur Mer and Cerbère. Homes in pretty and traditional villages, such as mediaeval Laroque des Albères, Sorède, Saint André, Saint Génis des Fontaines, Villelongue dels Monts and Montesquieu des Albères, are also sought after. On Corsica, Laroca's Ajaccio office has properties in the south of the island - particularly the areas around Ajaccio and Porto Vecchio. Properties currently range in price from as little as 76,000 Euros up to 1,110,000 Euros. So, whatever your budget, Laroca can find the perfect place!

French Property Links is Laroca's portal of choice

To get the word out about their fabulous properties and service, Laroca chooses to advertise with internet property portal French Property Links (FPL). Charles began placing his properties on the site because of its excellent Google ranking, and has never looked back. He says the site is simple to use, and he loves the friendly, client centred after sales service that matches his own ethos. If you're buying or selling in Roussillon or Corsica, you can be sure that Laroca and FPL will do the business for you.
