"The Swaton Group of companies has been professional, friendly and flexible to deal with. When your Provence house is a second residence, it becomes especially important to have a trustworthy local insurance provider, and the fact that Eurosud is a bilingual company is a great advantage as well"
"Moving to Provence, Eurosud Assurances has been a brilliant team to work with and they have managed to sort out all my insurances in the most efficient and cost effective way. Not only are they good in providing the right insurance, but they are also extremely supportive when you have had a problem and need to make claim. I have today arranged all my property, car and personal insurances through Eurosud and I would never dream about moving them anywhere else. I can only give the company my sincere recommendations."
"It was not easy to purchase a home in the south of France with only a rudimentary understanding of the language and a great love of the country. When I went looking to insure my property I was even more at a loss until I met with Eurosud where I discovered I didn't need to carry my french dictionary nor explain myself by using my hands. I was so pleased I asked them to take over the insurances on my Paris property".
"Our insurance in France both of property and contents was very complicated and given prior experience in France we were apprehensive about the process. We can honestly say that this was the best experience we have had in our sojourn in seven countries. Professional, attentive, and with a very personal touch. We can highly recommend Nicolas Swaton of Eurosud Assurances".
"Working with Nicolas Swaton and Eurosud has been a foreign home owners dream! The service is professional and very responsive - and the best part is I can conduct business with Eurosud in English. There are enough headaches that come with owning a vacation home - my insurance coverage with this company is not one of them..."
"A purchaser of property in France is faced with a number of obvious difficulties, compounded by the need to deal with them in an unfamiliar language. The key to resolving them speedily and sensibly is to have responsive and relevant advice. On all insurance matters I have found Nicolas Swaton and his team at Eurosud Assurances to be invaluable - not only are we able to conduct all discussions in English, but they also contribute their particular knowledge of local practice and conditions. All-in-all, I have been very happy with the service Nicolas and his team have provided."
"As newcomers to Provence, Eurosud proved a breath of fresh air. Not only did they have invaluable in-depth knowledge of the ins and outs of the French insurance scene, but they spoke impeccable English and are always a pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in recommending them."
