Well it's here, we're now officially Brexited and in the Transition Period until the end of 2020 so what does that mean for intending buyers of leisure homes in France? The immediate answer is that, until December 31st, if you can get your home delivered to France before any new legislation comes in, you can still take advantage of the VAT/TVA differential which can save you a good 12% on your purchase price. We had a fair bit of pent up business that was just awaiting the outcome of the general election and the passing of the Withdrawal Bill before potential buyers would commit to purchase; now that there is renewed confidence for the future our clients are proceeding with their purchases. Our suggestion, (and this isn't just salesman speak), is that anyone contemplating buying should not drag their heels; at the moment to get a new home down to the Riviera this Summer may need some fancy foot work to avoid disappointment. The 2021 (yes, 2021) versions are being prepped for September launches so these may come into consideration, provided factories can come up with the goods by December at the latest; anything leaving the UK after January 1st may be caught up in whatever customs and taxation arrangements come along after 2020. So, check out our Park, pore over the webpages of our suppliers and ask us to quote you on what is the hottest deal on the Cote d'Azur by miles. Don't delay!


Sadly, we now have to confront the limitations which government policies across Europe are placing on citizens and free movement within and without their home nations; the word 'unprecedented' is perhaps overused but is very true of the current situation. We earnestly hope that everyone will heed the precautions which are being recommended for us all to stay safe and ensure our future health at this time of global crisis. With the help of the populace and the unstinting devotion of our health care professionals and the scientific community developing treatments for the COVID-19 virus we look forward to a return to normality over the coming months, hopefully leaving us some time to take well earned breaks.


At the moment, most, if not all leisure home manufacturers have suspended production although some are maintaining office, administration and aftersales functions within the scope of safe working. Hopefully this will just be an interruption to the season and everything will pick up again before too long so that buyers and renters will be able to resume their leisure activities and salvage their precious holidays which will, we're sure, be even more greatly appreciated than ever.


Weblinks from this site access a fantastic level of choice from under £35k to £150k+ from our blue chip suppliers, and if standard product doesn't float your boat we have bespoke manufacturers who can do a made to measure home to suit your needs. If you feel your budget is more modest or don't wish to commit to a new purchase Holiday Marina have a selection of pre-owned, quality alternatives at cracking prices to dip your toe in the water. The list changes frequently so please contact them for up to date details; get in touch for more details on living the Riviera lifestyle!


When we re-open come down and see us at Holiday Marina Resort, 323 Route du Littoral, 83310 Grimaud, France; check out their updated website with some great gallery photos of the 5* facilities available for owners or renters; click here for direct access to it. Rental homes are available up to early October for any day arrival and departure, once travel restrictions have been lifted, with exciting new for 2019 'Executive' and 'VIP' lodges to hire, so come and sample the park's delights; booking directly on line with them guarantees you the best rates, you just might want to buy! 2018's investment of over half a million on the 41 remodelled and equipped touring bases with individual private bathroom pods makes Holiday Marina one of the few parcs capable of accepting the biggest American style motorhomes (up to 12m long), the 10 month site licence is a BIG plus point for those people with time on their hands and the desire to spend it at their leisure.


At the time of writing, forthcoming public shows and exhibitions are cancelled or under review so we can't definitely say when we'll next be back on the road to greet you and talk through the possibilities of investing in your leisure time, but we will return as soon as possible: be it Harrogate, Birmingham, Manchester, London or wherever. In the mean time, stay positive, stay well and above all: STAY SAFE!



Our thoughts are with you all at this very difficult time and we hope to see you again soon when normality returns.
