What our Customers think of D & S Property Services

We've been mowing lawns, cutting grass, and generally managing property, swimming pools and gardens for over a decade and we think we're pretty good at what we do - but don't just take our word for it... this is what our customers think...


We had a fantastic holiday in your beautiful home in Aubeterre. It really is a stunning property and definitely the best we've stayed in over the past 14 years. You can tell it is a well loved home, not just a holiday let. We found the information and booking process to be clear and easy. The cleanliness and comfort of the house was excellent. There were plenty of comfortable sofa's and the added benefit of Sky TV meant we didn't miss the Olympics! We also found the house to be very well equipped. Dawn and Steve were very friendly and helpful and were quick to resolve the problem with the hot water. Definitely the best management team we've encountered.

Steve - Aubeterre


Steve and Dawn have been looking after our pool from the beginning of last season, they have been unfailingly trustworthy, consistent and reliable, and know everything that needs to be known about our salt water pool! Steve has now taken over the mowing of our grounds, and we rest assured he will be doing a good job.

Helen B - Saint Pardoux de Drone


We currently use the services of Dawn and Steve to maintain our pool and also do security checks during the long periods we are not there. This has given us tremendous peace of mind knowing they are there to keep an eye on things and are at the end of the phone if anything else is needed. They are very professional and would not hesitate to recommend them.

Keith and Michelle - Brantome


D&S Property Services look after our pool and garden so we know its in perfect condition & ready for use after we make the long journey down to the Dordogne.  Dawn and Steve have saved the day many times at our house anything from finding leaks to switching on and off temperamental heating systems!!

SM - Brantome


As a very infrequent visitor to my place in France the best thing about D and S is their complete reliability: I see them only occasionally;however the grass is cut when it needs to be and their work over several years has gradually expanded the grass area compared with the bramble!. Its very nice to arrive each time and find the garden looking neat and tidy

JB - Bouteilles St Sebastien


D & S Property Services  have looked after our property, pool and garden for the last seven years. We have found them to be very helpful, reliable and thoroughly nice people to deal with.

K and D - Bourg du Bost


To have someone local who cuts the grass in the growing season and checks on our bolt-hole second home when we are not around is very important to us. We know we can trust Dawn and Steve, who have done a great job over the last eight years. It may be a luxury to have our water and heating turned on before we arrive in the colder months, but it makes a tremendous difference! Many thanks to you both.

M and T - Dordogne


D&S have been managing our pool ever since we bought our holiday cottage four years ago, as well as occasional changeovers for guests. Dawn and Steve are a great team, friendly and cheerful, who provide a very efficient professional service and are thoroughly reliable. As a bonus, their regular visits are reassuring when the house is left empty for long periods.

C&P Piegut-Pluviers


D & S have cared for our garden for some time now and more recently have taken on the maintenance of our pool and the crossover between guests at our house. They have always been reliable, fair and efficient and if there anything they cannot do they always find someone equally efficient who can.

C & M – Nontron
