About us

pic-about02Beautiful South Estate Agency was established in 2003 by Eve Maltese, who was born and raised in Perpignan. Having worked abroad for many years in global trade and real estate, she recognised the need for a dedicated agency to serve the requirements of the international clientèle drawn to this stunning region. The Pyrénées-Orientales is the southernmost department of the Languedoc Roussillon, (also known as The Roussillon or French Catalonia) and we represent character properties all over the area – from the Mediterranean coastline, inland across the vineyards, to the Spanish border and up to the foothills of the Pyrénées mountains and ski-resorts.

We work for a mainly international clientele, offering the finest selection of quality properties in a wide range of styles and budgets, reflecting the diversity of this sunny and characterful corner of France. Our range of properties include ‘lock-up and leave’ sea-view apartments, quaint village houses, Mediterranean villas and rambling stone Farmhouses.

Looking to buy a property?

Our English and French-speaking consultants have a thorough knowledge of the region and its property market, and they are here to help you. We understand that it can be daunting ‘buying abroad’ for the first time so will help you every step of the way. We will take time to listen to your priorities and requirements to ensure that we only show you properties which meet your criteria.

We also work with a large network of local agencies, notaires and other contacts so will make every effort to track down the perfect property for you – saving you the hassle of having to make many phone calls and appointments.

Our friendly team will guide you through the whole process to ensure that your purchase runs smoothly and you have no worries. We can assist for additional services such as legal or financial advice, insurance quotes, dealing with utility companies, rental advice, to name but a few.

Looking to sell a property?

We are always looking to add to our portfolio of character properties and would be delighted to discuss this with you. Your property would be marketed and presented in a most professional manner to our international clients. As well as our own website, our properties are featured on the international real estate portals of Rightmove and Greenacres, and we are also affiliated with Savill’s of London.
