A Place in Provence for South Africans

News > news - 22 Jan 2008
The first ever Provence property exhibition in South Africa is being held in
both Cape Town and Johannesburg. Sponsored by Nedbank, Un Mas en Provence
takes place at the Everard Read Gallery, Portswood Road, Cape Town on
Thursday 28th February at

6pm, and at Nedbank head office, 135 Rivonia Rd, Santon, Johannesburg on
Thursday 6th March at 6pm.

Both shows will be focused on how to buy property in Provence and will
include talks by experts on taxes in France, transferring money, how to
avoid inheritance taxes and legal procedures.

Marie-Madeleine Nelson established the exclusive real estate agency, Un Mas
en Provence, over 15 years ago and has over 27 years in Provence real
estate. She will be in South Africa especially to host both shows and on
hand to talk to anyone who has an interest in either buying or renting
beautiful houses in the area defined by the Luberon and Les Alpilles, two of
the most sought after regions of Provence.

Previously married to a South African, Marie-Madeleine Nelson's frequent
visits to this country have lead her to believe that more South Africans
would delight in spending more time in this lovely part of France. "A
number of discerning South Africans have already discovered and invested in
the area. As our houses are gorgeous, they will appeal to people who have a
flair for living the good life and who seek something they cannot have at
home . something that you can only enjoy in the perfect Provencal home."

The Un Mas en Provence agency offers expert advice on the buying, selling
and letting of property and has a portfolio that includes a wide range of
private homes, farms, vineyards, country houses, and chateaux.

Nedbank is sponsoring the Un Mas en Provence exhibitions and will be on hand
to explain and manage the legal and financial process involved for potential
Provence house buyers.
