May 2012


Spring heralds the start of some wonderful events here on the French Riviera and in Monaco. We have already enjoyed Monaco hosting the International Rolex Master Tennis tournament and also Top Marques Monaco, the worlds only live Supercar Show.

Start your Engines....This year in Monaco we have both the Historic Grand Prix and the F1 Grand Prix. Both are wonderful occasions hosted by the principality and involve many of our local colleagues in events for these glittering occasions.

Roll out the Red Carpet...This year we are celebrating the 65th festival with Nanni Moretti (Italian Film Director) heading the jury of the main competition. The beautiful Berenice Bejo, star of "The Artist", is hosting the opening and closing ceremonies of the festival. The opening night film is "Moonrise Kingdom" and the festival closes with "Therese Desqueyroux". We also believe that on the red carpet will be stars of this year's festival films, such as Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, Bruce Willis, Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Zac Efron, Tilda Swinton, and many other favourites, so there will be the usual frenzy!

Dates for your Diary:

Historic Grand Prix: 11th - 13th May
F1 Grand Prix - 24th: 27th May 2012
Cannes Film Festival: 16th - 27th May 2012

Maitre Jean-Claude Darmon

We are delighted to work with Maitre Darmon as our English speaking Notary. In France, Notaires are officers of the state and the role of the Notaire is to ensure the legal security of the property purchase by drafting the contracts in accordance with your personal status, to ensure that you take full account of the many complex legal issues that affect the purchase and sale of property here in France.

Even if you speak fluent French, understanding the 'legalise' in another language is complex and in France it is law that you must have an official translator present as part of the buying process to ensure a complete comprehension of the contracts. We work with Maitre Darmon, who speaks perfect English and is an expert in helping our clients to structure their property purchase in the most appropriate way for them. Mistakes during the purchase can be costly and our services ensure that 'How you Buy' is carefully considered prior to entering into any contracts.
