A Courteous, professional and seamless service

We were first introduced to Leisure Home Sales France via a listing on Rightmove for a holiday home that was in our price bracket. We had started making contact with a few other UK companies who were offering a range of units in France, but when we spoke to the owner of Leisure Home Sales France, Steve Jackson, we immediately felt that we were dealing with someone we could work with.

We went over to Brittany to view the unit, but it was being moved and so we could only see the exterior, although we had seen an identical unit in situ and so we knew what to expect; Steve also sent us a selection of photos of the unit.

Our decision was to go ahead with the purchase, which Steve explained would include a brand new 3x6m raised deck. We paid a deposit and it was agreed that we could pay the balance on inspection. Once the holiday home had been installed we went over to set it up for the season and within an hour of being in our new unit we transferred the balance to Steve.

Everything was as he had described; the unit was in great condition and the new decking added the finishing touch. We were delighted with the service Steve provided and the quality of the mobile home, which we look forward to using for many years to come.

‘We are now the proud owners of a beautiful mobile home’
‘My partner and I would like to express our gratitude to Steve and Marg Jackson for their fantastic assistance in making our search for a holiday home in France so trouble free. They responded to all our requests for information in a timely, prompt and friendly manner. They offered to arrange economic travel and organised our appointment to view several holiday home options at Parc Mayenne. We were delighted with our convivial welcome to the excellently maintained park, by the park managers Simon and Clare. We are now the proud owners of a beautiful mobile home in a wonderful setting and looking forward to our first holiday there”.

‘We have the best of both worlds. A piece of France that we can call home but we have the security of knowing it is looked after when we are back in the UK’

We had our hearts set on having a property in France but circumstances and fear prevented us from taking the plunge. We decided we had to do something and we searched French property websites looking for our future bricks and mortar home but all the time there was a nagging doubt about the practicality of buying a house and the unknown logistics. Would we like the area? Would we be welcomed by the local people? What do we do about maintaining the property when we are back in the UK?

We were in a state of turmoil and then we searched the internet and found suitable mobile homes to buy in Normandy at Parc Mayenne. The website was so inviting and we loved the spacious area that the parc offered. The pictures were so appealing. It appeared to tick all the boxes so we made an enquiry to Steve Jackson who called me back and we spent 30 minutes discussing our aspirations and how a holiday home at Parc Mayenne could fit into our future plans.

An appointment was made to visit the site on the 25th October and when we arrived at the site our jaws dropped. The parc was beautiful and we’d only seen the main reception area. The beauty of the place unfolded before our eyes.

We were met by Clare and Simon who manage the parc and Clare patiently showed us the homes that were for sale. We fell in love with the Willerby Vogue and within 24 hours we had bought our very own mobile home in the Loire. The process was so simple. Clare and Simon answered our questions openly. They allowed us free time to re-visit the homes again on our own. We were introduced to home owners on the park and they gave us candid answers to our questions. It ticked all the boxes.

We came back to the site the following day and re-affirmed our decision to buy this fantastic bolt hole in the French countryside. We have the best of both worlds. A piece of France that we can call home but we have the security of knowing it is looked after when we are back in the UK. We cannot thank Steve and the team enough for their help in helping us achieve our dream home. Thankyou.

‘Parc Mayenne was exactly what we had been looking for all these years’

After ten years of searching for the right property in France, we found Park Mayenne on the internet and decided to take a look as we were having a week looking at properties in the Mayenne area. We made an appointment with Steve of Leisure Homes France who advised us about mobile homes in the Loire and met Clare, the parc manager, who showed us around the following week.
After several visits all lasting hours, enjoying the peaceful and beautiful surroundings, checking out the lakes and walking around, visiting the local villages between the snow showers and beautiful Spring sunshine, we came to realise that Parc Mayenne was exactly what we had been looking for all these years; the beauty and tranquillity of the parc is just unbeatable and the simplicity of buying a mobile home was much easier than committing to a house, with much less capital required.
We are now the owners of a lovely new BK Bluebird mobile home on a superb pitch with river views. Every step and decision was made easy for us with nothing ever being too much trouble for Steve and his team.

‘We can’t thank Leisure Homes enough for their professional advice’

We were looking to upgrade our mobile home in Brittany and by chance came across this website showing an Atlas Tempo (ex-rental) for sale. Although very wary we made contact and explained our situation to Steve Jackson, who couldn’t have been more helpful.
After a trip to France to view the mobile we decided to put down a deposit. Steve put us in touch with a French-based transport company and on completion of the purchase our new ‘home’ arrived on site. We can’t thank Leisure Homes enough for their professional advice, assistance and patience in the purchase. They were constantly in touch via the telephone and email throughout the process. Thank you.

‘I knew that we had found the right place for us’

We decided that we wanted to spend more time in France without the extra costs of ‘bricks & mortar’ home ownership, so we started looking for permanent sited mobile homes on the internet, that’s where we found Leisure Homes Sales France. I contacted Steve straight away, and was amazed at his knowledge and enthusiasm without the hard sell!  We arranged a visit for the following weekend to look at several of the second hand homes at Parc Mayenne. We were met by Clare & Simon who showed us around, both the site and our hosts exceeded our expectations.  I for one pretty much knew that we had found the right place for us.
I went across for a week to get all the admin sorted, such as insurance, bank accounts & TV installation (all made easy by excellent advice and direction from Clare & Simon).  I cannot speak more highly of Steve, Clare & Simon, their help, advice and straight forward talking have made this process far easier and more pleasant than I was expecting, we both look forward to spending a lot of time in the beautiful surrounds in and around Parc Mayenne, and sharing our time there with some great neighbours who in time we hope will become good friends.

‘Hassle free and better than buying a house’

Just a line or two to say a very big Thank You! After looking around France for a nice park to set up a holiday-home, and believe me I have seen quite a few, most were noisy and very commercial. When I came to view Parc Mayenne I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet and rural the parc is. The open views and the river are just wonderful, and the staff very pleasant and offered real honest and helpful advice.
Once I had decided which mobile home I wanted and had chosen my plot, I left everything to Leisure Home Sales to arrange, the whole process turned out to be hassle free and better than buying a house. I have now had my first visit to my new holiday home in the Loire, and met so many wonderful friendly neighbours who are quickly becoming friends. I can’t wait for my next visit, so once again a really BIG THANK YOU.

Alison and Mike from Kent own a Lindera Lodge at Parc Mayenne

It was a cold and clear day when we visited the French Show at London’s Earls Court in January by train from Ashford, Kent. We were warmly welcomed by Steve and Stella who spoke enthusiastically of both Parc Mayenne and the variety of homes that were featured on it, previous to this moment we had only considered buying a house.

We arranged a site visit to Parc Mayenne for the weekend after and were met by the parc managers, Clare and Simon, who made us very welcome. Simon took us around, not only to see the extent of the parc and its facilities, but four separate holiday homes. The topography, layout, pool, stunning views and its remoteness were all things that were “just right” for us and within a few weeks we had agreed to buy a lodge.

Our first official visit as owners was just before Easter, we were delighted to find that the lodge had been prepared to the highest standard for us. The rest of this year has been one continuous pleasure. We have met some delightful people and have enjoyed having the time to make the lodge our “residence secondaire”.

We are looking forward to our next year at Parc Mayenne with great enthusiasm, the sooner we can be back “home” the better.
