Planning and Building

Owning a property in France, whether as a permanent home or a weekend getaway, is probably one of the largest investments we make in our lives. But despite the obvious pleasures of spending time in such a beautiful land, it can also be stressful if we become involved with any aspect of building, renovation or property improvement.

How do we find reputable builders? Do we need planning permission to knock through into the adjacent barn? How much will it all cost and will I understand the process...? Questions like these can occupy our minds, fill our time and cause real discomfort.

The Gite Doctor can offer a number of remedies for issues like these, and with our help you'll soon be back to making the most of your home, enjoying its peace and feeling tranquil once more.

These are designed to give you some background information on things like planning regulations and the various types of planning application that exist.  You can also look at our Building & Planning FAQ page to see some of the more common questions that arise.
