We are so pleased that we contacted you 15 months ago to look after our property near to Orbec. We felt we needed someone to look after our home in Normandy. We gain peace of mind with your monthly visits and photos. You helped to find a great thatcher and we are so pleased with the results. You received new furniture and sold the old furniture. Perhaps renovating the old plunge pool is next.

We appreciate everything that you have done to help us sinice we first found our lovely property in Vimoutiers. We found it via the advert that you had placed for the owner. Sat down in Vermont something really appealed. You could not have been more helpful to be sure that we had all we needed. We decided to make an offer before visiting. It was accepted. So, we flew over, confident that the property would be as we expected. It was. In fact, better. The Compromis de Vente was signed, and you helped us along every step of the way. Just before Christmas we got the keys. The next exciting part of the journey commenced.

The property needed work. You helped to get artisans and even agreed to decorate the property to bring the property back from its’ neglection. Taking care and attention with bringing the features out of the property. You have continued to help us with our journey. We have peace of mind. Take in parcels, arrange jobs and artisans. Helped us source furnishings and recently a car.

Thank you both for everything.

Dear Peter and Jan,

We would like to thank you very much for everything you have done to make this ‘big step’ easier for us. You help and expertise are very valuable to us. We look forward to building a future in Aubry and hope that you and Jan will be part of it.

Imre and Martine – Aubry Le Panthou – Amsterdam, March 2023

I had engaged an agent to sell my property in October 2021. A good well known local agency. I was encouraged to expect a good price. Despite many viewings over 9 months and offer was elusive. By chance I was introduced to Peter. I decided that a private sale provided another option. I needed some help as I had moved abroad. Peter did everything on the ground. Two offers achieved. The final sale completed in March 2023. There were many things to do, clear the property, arrange grounds maintenance, organise quotes, vide maison, clear rubbish. Lots of things that I could not do. Manage the property, arrange tradesmen.

“Home and Dry in Normandy” certainly made the difference. Contactable, receptive and flexible. I could not have achieved this with confidence. An agency simply would not have dealt with all of the facets required and giving the buyers the confidence that the promises would be delivered.

Jonathan Coe – Vimoutiers and Finland – March 2023

We knew that the time had come to move to another adventure in France. We did not know who to trust the sale of our property with. We did not want an agency and wanted to feel consulted and involved. The cost of the agency fees also weighed in our minds. We thought about selling privately. But it felt daunting with all the regulations and processes involved. Also, very personal.
By chance we found ‘Home and Dry in Normandy’. They offered help and services to allow and help us to sell our property. We decided to give it a try. Lo and behold Covid came along and that did not help. But with patience and diligence we managed to find a lovely French coupe to continue the journey that we had started at the property. There were many things to organise and also to be helpful to the new owners. ‘Home and Dry in Normandy’ helped us along every step of the way. Helping us to find storage and even helping with temporary rental accommodation.
Selling a property is always a bit stressful. To us it was invaluable to have someone in our camp who calmly completed the processes in a pleasant and professional way.

Jane and John – Conde Sur Noireau – August 2021

Peter assisted me last year in selling my house in Normandy. His help was simply invaluable in navigating the many complexities of this process, and in dealing with French documentation and various legal requirements.

Simon Lawford – March 2022

After having our house on the market for five years with a local estate agent we were introduced in August by another satisfied English based home owner to Peter Mozelewski.
Now four months later our property is sold.

He managed the whole process from the preparation of the house, the placing of the advert, to the final signing at the Notaire. This was achieved with not needing to visit France until completion at the Notaire.

Peter was considerate, friendly and totally professional in all his dealings.

We strongly recommend him to others who wish to sell their French house

Jeremy & Ruth Burbidge – December 2021

Peter’s knowledge of the French property market was invaluable in achieving the sale of our Normandy property. The agent route in France is an expensive option for both seller and buyer plus we wanted someone to advise us truthfully as to the realities of the market. Peter’s counsel held us in good stead and we achieved a sale near to our asking price. This enabled us to move on to the next stage in our lives.

Jane and Jonny Sprules – September 2021

How can I thank you for everything you did to enable me to market my property? And to achieve a brilliant sale?

When I contacted you I was totally at a loss as to how to navigate the minefield of selling my property in France, especially when I lived in England. But you guided me every step of the way. From taking out an advertisement with French Properties Direct incorporating the photos you took, continuing to correspond directly with interested viewers, showing them round the property. I thought that would be the end of your involvement – but no. You corresponded with the Notaire’s office, organising a visit with the diagnostics engineer and even acting as my proxy for the initial meeting with the Notaire to save my making 2 trips to France. Finally you accompanied me for the final signing of the contract and even found an interpreter to ease the problems of my poor French. Ultimately you found me a trusted currency exchange company in England which enabled me to pay my sale money into my English bank account at a good rate.

Your help was inestimable and really far beyond what you charged me – so carefully costed at every stage. A simple ‘thank you’ doesn’t seem enough for all your work, but I can only say I couldn’t have done it without you!

Best and grateful good wishes


Pete and Jan have provided an excellent service for the property over the last 12 months. Nothing has been too much trouble looking after the garden and also changeovers for the gite, often at short notice. Completely trustworthy. I can fully recommend there services.

This is a reference concerning
Peter and Jan Mozelewski of the above company.
Having used this company to look after our property in Normandy while we are not in residence, we can say with confidence that they are trust worthy, hard working and have gone above and beyond our expectations in caring for our house while we are living in the UK. Their work on all fronts such as preparation, painting both interior and exterior is exemplary and they also see other little jobs that need attention we may have missed.
