DORDOGNE – Where the story began …


Leggett Immobilier was formed, two decades ago, in a small office in the Dordogne. We chose this department because it offered a warm & sunny climate, a wonderful, rolling, landscape and (above all) properties that were full of character and affordable.

Over the years our practice has grown and we now have agents in all the most popular areas of France (and are looking for more) and you can view over 14,000 properties on this website.

The internet has radically changed the way that property is bought and sold in France.  The days of a local agent handing you a scrap of paper with a blurry photo and scarce details is long gone.  Browse our website and you will see that virtual tours are becoming increasingly prevalent.  Cadastral plans can be downloaded online and once you have visited a house with us then you can use Google Earth to take a tour of the neighbouring houses and surrounding towns and villages.

In the first three months of this year our site had almost 4,500,000 page views with visitors coming from all over the world.

This is all a far cry from the early days but you can rest assured that we remain a family business with our roots still firmly in the Dordogne.  Our head office in La Rochebeaucourt et Argentine may be larger but our commitment to quality of service stays the same!
