Philip Hawkes can introduce you to some
of the best Châteaux, Manors & Estates for sale
in France, and have unrivalled knowledge and expertise in their field, with over 35 years' experience
in the French property business.

Châteaux are the finest residential country properties in France,
with lovely rural views, gardens and parks, sometimes with an estate,
with fascinating architecture from every period. They are to be found throughout

the many regions of France, in a variety of different styles.

The unique value of châteaux doesn't stop at architectural style, century, or region :
inside, they were often conceived as spacious family homes,
cleverly laid out with elegant rooms, each with period features, such as fine staircases, 
panelling, fireplaces, etc. Outside, the grounds have often been landscaped to include avenues, extensive lawns, 'Parterres', walled and kitchen gardens,
ornamental basins with fountains, and woodlands, etc.


Many of the châteaux have been, or can be, sensitively updated to match
modern day standards of comfort and new ways of hosting. Some, however,
are buildings in need of renovation, just waiting to be taken in hand and
given a new lease of life by their perfect new owners. 


This is were the Philip Hawkes Agency comes in.

With a deep understanding of France and its language, culture, history
and architecture, and with years of experience and knowledge of the French
château market and property law, Patricia and Philip have become some of

the foremost authorities in the field.

Over their rewarding career in the French real estate market,  they have developed an extensive network of contacts, and have a first-hand experience of thousands of châteaux,
including their very own. Looking after a beautiful home, which they share with
their friends, family and enthusiasts with immense pleasure,
they know exactly what it takes to embark on a château life.

As such, their approach is bespoke and personal, they listen to their clients' ideas and needs, focus on the important details; they ensure a smooth process, and especially, they find
the right château for every client, before setting them on their way, so that they too can
enjoy the wonderful experience of caring for and living 'La Vie de Château'.
