About Pure France

Pure France is the commercial trading name of a company established by Hugh Atkins and Dan Jones, owners and directors of Atkins and Jones limited - a fully registered company incorporated in Ireland. The company comprises specialist offices for property sales and holiday rentals with bilingual staff (English, French & Dutch).

We began with a handful of small rental properties in the Hérault department of Languedoc-Roussillon, in 2002. The company quickly developed with regional offices in Provence, Brittany, Dordogne and south-west France. In 2005, we centralised the whole operation to a base just outside Carcassonne and we are now arguably the largest independent agency dedicated to renting quality properties in France, with a portfolio of approximately 560 properties.

The launch of a national sales agency, to complement our rental activity, was a natural progression. This included the appointment of Sales Director Philippe Lorenzo and Virginie Erre, experienced, bilingual real estate agents with a wealth of experience in this sector. Our impressive sales portfolio includes quality properties from Provence to Languedoc and Dordogne to Brittany.

Our enviable Google-rankings give us a great advantage in the market-place, together with a long-established database of renters wishing to buy, and property owners wishing to sell.

Our goal is to offer a friendly, professional and efficient service to all our clients at all times. We are open 365 days a year and always available to help and advise.

We look forward to hearing from you.
