Agents’ Tales
La Vie!
From 15th century château security to those complete with escape tunnels,
Paul Humphreys and his team have encountered a bewildering and
enchanting array of scenarios when selling properties in France, Monaco
and the Alps. Here they tell French View some of their stories…
What’s the most unusual property
you’ve been involved with?
“There are quite a few actually. One
was a château that had a flint lock pistol
built into the entrance door in the form
of a 15th century burglar alarm. Legend
has it that d’Artagnan once lived there
and also that it was once visited by the
Duke of Wellington.
Another example was a château with
an underground escape tunnel running
beneath it and out to the Dordogne
River. But perhaps my favourite is a
château we are currently selling. Built in
1725, Château de Warsy was occupied by
the Germans during both World Wars but
astonishingly, was used simultaneously
by the French Resistance to ferry allied
airmen to England.
It has since played host to the
Manchester rock band James, who
recorded an album there.” (see p24).
What’s the most interesting sale you’ve
been involved in recently?
“It is not unusual for buyers to change
their remit during the course of their
search. It is after all a fundamental
part of the fine tuning and ultimate
decision process. However there are
those extreme occasions where the
original brief is completely transformed
throwing the planned schedule and
agent into disarray. Never has this been
more relevant than a recent visit from
a highbrow business woman whose
romantic vision was to find an isolated,
authentic Mas with rolling pasture,
vines and olives. Somewhere she would
escape the cacophony of the financial
markets, rediscover nature and succumb
to long lazy technology free days. After
seeing two domains of this kind she
asked rather nervously whether we had
a modern 7 bedroom village house, with
a low maintenance private garden and
pool. Much to her relief we did and a sale
was agreed that very day!”
Mark Harvey
What’s the strangest request you’ve ever had
from a client?
“I once had a buyer who was looking for
a property with stuffed animals and hunting
trophies on the walls. He didn’t seem to mind
which country or the area property was in.”
Paul Humphreys
Fred Schiff

What’s the nicest thing a client has
ever said to you?
“I was instructed to sell a property
that had already been on the market
for some time without success. As
I had only just been instructed my
knowledge of the property was limited,
but I managed to find a buyer relatively
quickly and a sale was agreed.
However, only then did I discover that
the previous owner had died in the
house and wasn’t found for a number
of days. I decided that it was only fair to
relay this information to the buyers.
Though a little alarmed, they mulled
the situation overnight and came back
to say: ‘Firstly, we have decided to
proceed with the sale. Secondly, hats
off to you for telling us and jeopardising
the sale’.”
What’s the quickest sale
you’ve been involved in?
“We once listed a lovely
character property situated
just 25 minutes from the
coast. The very next day a
Norwegian family came to
visit and asked to view the
property - it was their first
ever viewing on the French
Riviera. They fell in love
with it before we walked
in the door and bought
it on the spot for the full
asking price. The sale took
less than 45 minutes from
the time I collected them
from their hotel. The right
property at the right price
is always a great pleasure
to handle as it can sell fast
and make for a good story.”
Fredrik Lilloe
What’s the most rewarding sale you’ve
been involved in?
“Rewarding in an unconventional
sense was a recent instruction of a
house in Provence, at which an awardwinning olive oil is produced and sold
at Harrods for £45 per bottle. When
visiting the new owners, they kindly
gave me a bottle to take home with me.
However this was at a time when
airports had banned passengers from
carrying liquids in their hand luggage,
so the owners kindly offered to post it
to me. I’m sure the postage costs were
close to the cost of the oil itself. So it
was a very kind gesture indeed.”
Mark Harvey
Matthew Hodder-Williams
If you could live in any of the properties
you’re selling at the moment, which
would you choose?
“When asked to view a property just
outside the village of Lorgues, inland
from St Tropez, I was pleasantly surprised
to find a very elegant but discreet pair of
wrought-iron gates at the top of a very
promising drive, at the end of which we
found the perfect Provençal country house
in all its glory.
A stone fountain stood before the
front door and exquisite ancient trees
provided welcome shade on what was
a scorching day. Inside was a dream
farmhouse kitchen and a further kitchen
with an open fireplace for roasting wild
boar, leading onto a glorious terrace
offering uninterrupted views for miles
across unspoilt woodland. From there
we walked through the ancient jardin à
la française, by the swimming pool, on
to a little wooden chalet to the early XVIII
century pigeonnier, then down to the little
Roman cemetery, past an orchard to the
olive grove of 1,000 trees, back through
a meadow past a pretty building home to
a family of geese and hens, a mid-XVIII
century grange, and a IX century cottage,
all set in swathes of lovely woodland.
As if that were not enough, there are six
horse boxes with a paddock and training
enclosure and a small vineyard. Of all
the houses I’ve visited in nearly 40 years,
including St Tropez’s glitziest, this stands
out by far as the one I most covet. And
at €5m I consider it to be the deal of
the century.”

Area guide and market overview
Paris is
by a wide
range of
striking period
dating back to the Second
Empire and late 19th century.
Whether Haussmannian, Belle
Epoque or Art Deco in style, a
building’s provenance is just
as important as its interior to
discerning buyers searching for
a piece of the city’s heritage.
As well as offering a
particular aesthetic, period
buildings are synonymous with
ample proportions – ceilings
may be 5m high in some of the
grander homes.
The combination of rich
period properties, scarce
new developments and the
cosmopolitan lifestyle it offers
residents, make Paris a stalwart on
the global prime property scene.
Market snapshot
According to Knight Frank’s
new Prime Global Cities Index,
luxury property prices in Paris
rose by over 22% in the year
to March 2011 – the highest
increase of all cities monitored.
Driven primarily by supply
constraints and growing interest
from overseas buyers, who
account for around 70% of
the premium market, strong
domestic demand has also
contributed. Knight Frank has
seen a new wave of instructions
from French vendors in the
€4-5m price bracket.
The beauty of
the French Alps
is that there is
both an area and
a resort to suit
all needs. Les Trois Vallées,
for example, is the ideal
choice for families and skiers
of all abilities, as it provides
a large area of mixed-ability
pistes as well as easy access
to a number of villages and
lift stations. Its key resorts of
Courchevel and Méribel remain
6 French View
as fashionable as ever.
North of Les Trois Vallées
and beyond the lake at
popular Annecy is Megève – a
traditional alpine village and a
particular favourite with those
who enjoy a more relaxed and
chic alpine experience, whilst
Chamonix and Val d’Isere
– covering geographically
separate ski areas – continue
to hold a place in the hearts for
many accomplished skiers.
Market snapshot
The 2010/11 winter season
saw an improvement on the
previous and we anticipate
further improvements in the
coming season, where realistic
pricing and strong buyer
demand should generate a
higher volume of sales. The
return of the French, coupled
with the growing number of
both Russian and CIS buyers
gives us confidence for a
dynamic ski season.
for its
properties which sit
scattered across plains,
atop ridges and hills, France’s
south west region has long
enticed discerning buyers
looking for the relaxed pace
of life and unique setting it
provides. The wild valleys and
meadows either side of the
Dordogne River provide the
perfect backdrop for candlelit
suppers under broad wooden
beams, complemented by
wine produced in the nearby
vineyards of Saint-Emilion,
Pomerol or the Medoc. Equally
so, Gascony’s patchwork
countryside dotted with ochre
farms holds host to its own
history, in which Merovingian
kings, musketeers and
Napoleonic heroes held sway.
Here, there is a village square,
riverside café and hillside
restaurant for everyone to fall
in love with.
Knight Frank sells the best
properties in the most
sought-after locations in
France, Monaco and the
Alps. This guide offers a brief
introduction to each of those
areas along with a snapshot
of how its property market
is performing.
Market snapshot
Those selling properties
priced between €750,000
and €1.5m have recognised
the need to price in line with
buyer sentiment. In the higher
price ranges, circa €2m+,
vendors are strongly advised
to seek comparable evidence
on prices before marketing
their property to avoid a
campaign that ultimately does
not yield results. Proactive
British buyers have returned,
albeit in smaller numbers
than before.
Nowhere is
the world’s
love affair
with France
than in Provence. Buyers
seeking a holiday home or
planning a permanent move
are enchanted by the hilltop
villages, beautiful mountain
ranges and Provençal lifestyle.
The Luberon’s mix of vineyards,
lavender fields and mountains
contribute to the region’s
enduring appeal, as does
its artistic connections in
rolling green hills of the Var.
The Cannes Film Festival,
Monaco Boat Show, Les Voiles
de St Tropez and other annual
events continue to contribute
to the region’s glamorous
reputation and global appeal.
The coastal parts of Cannes
and St Tropez draw crowds
to the numerous restaurants,
shops and festivals, while
those seeking a retreat may
do so in the surrounding
medieval villages.
Market snapshot
Prime spots in the
region remain the focus of
buyers’ attention, with St
Tropez, Mougins, Valbonne,
Villefranche, Cap Ferrat, and
Cap Martin always sought
after. Buyers are interested
in properties in the lower
and mid-price ranges more
so than in the past, and
there has also been a small
but notable increase in topend activity.
Best known
for its spring
waters, the
lakeside city
of Evian-lesBains rests on the southern
part of Lake Geneva near the
French-Swiss border. A vein of
history courses through the
region, from the very beautiful
and historic medieval town of
Yvoire - France’s oldest village
- to La Source Cachat, the
original source of the worldrenowned Evian water.
Properties range from
traditional Edwardian-style
family houses on the lake to
more contemporary homes
with swimming pools, tennis
courts and phenomenal
lakeside views.
Residents benefit from
proximity to Geneva for an
easy commute and the Portes
de Soleil both for summer
and ski trips to the nearby
areas such as Saint-Rémyde-Provence and Les Alpilles,
made famous by the many
artists who have lived here,
most notably Vincent Van
Gogh, who created some of
his most well known pieces
in Provence.
Market snapshot
Our most active market in
2010/2011. Prices typically
range from €750,000+ but
demand is stronger in the
higher price ranges, particularly
in the €4-8m range. The region
currently receives its largest
interest from British, Belgian,
Swiss and French buyers and
also has a notable track record
of North American, Australasian
and South African owners.
from the
border to
the St Tropez
peninsula, the Côte d’Azur
offers everything from
spectacular sun-soaked bays
in the shelter of the Alps to
the renowned vineyards and
Market snapshot
Following the growth of
international buyer interest in
Lake Geneva we are delighted
to announce our new associate
office in Evian, which focuses
on significant lakeside
properties offering privacy,
security and easy access to

and Swiss Alps.
as a hub
for the
the Principality of Monaco is
also acclaimed for the high
level of security afforded to its
mainly international residents,
who also benefit from there
being a wealth of highly
regarded banking, financial
and other professional
service providers from which
to choose.
At just 2 sq km Monaco
is the second smallest
country in the world. Popular
areas include the Carré
D’Or, home to the Place du
Casino and Monte Carlo; La
Condamine district and the
Port, where apartments at the
striking new development
No 23 Boulevard de Belgique
are currently being sold,
(see p8 and 9); Fontvieille,
which is reclaimed land
bordering France on the
western side of Monaco,
and Larvotto, which is home
to the famous Avenue Princess
Grace on the eastern side of
the principality.
Market snapshot
Properties are in short
supply and prices remain
relatively high. The
authorities have passed a law
that substantially reduces
the registration tax, similar to
the UK’s stamp duty tax, by
around 40%, taking the figure
down to what is expected to
be around 4.5% of the value
of the property.
