'We bought our (potentially) beautiful old farmhouse near St Jean d'Angély three years ago. Simon has been instrumental in realising its full potential, bringing the old Charentaise stonework to full 'pierre apparente' life inside and out, cleaning and restoring old beams and woodwork, installing bathroom suites, tiling, general woodwork etc. All tasks undertaken with great skill, care and precision, at a cost entirely appropriate to the standard achieved. It is rare to find someone who exceeds your expectations but Simon always does. We are happy just to let him get on with things, knowing that he will do a great job. Listens to and implements all instructions to the letter, but shows great initiative and flair when required. Cannot recommend him highly enough to anyone with a renovation or building project.'

Mr and Mrs James

‘Over the past few years we have used Simon Paine and his team at ProjectinFrance in several renovation and property improvement projects.

The results have always been excellent with particular attention paid to quality finishing . Simon has always been punctual and puts in a long day's work displaying great talent for building and restoration. Unfailingly cheerful he fits in easily to whatever environment he finds himself in.

Thoroughly recommended!’

Mr G Thomas

‘I would recommend Simon and his team without hesitation. His attention to detail is what sets him apart along with a great eye for what works. All his projects were finished on time which was a huge relief as I had had bad experiences before. Regular updates were provided too so I had total peace of mind. I’m hoping we will be working together on another project in the near future.’

Mrs C Watson

I have had the pleasure of working with Simon over several years now and I should emphasise that it has been a pleasure.

Simon is fastidious in his work ensuring that levels, lengths, heights are spot on before the final trowel is applied.

I have always found Simon to be reliable, turning up at the appointed time on the appointed day; quite uncharacteristic of builders these days.

In short you can count on Simon.’

Mr G Wilson
