Help! We Bought a Village!

If you have been watching Channel 4’s hit programme “Help! We Bought A Village!” you may know that it featured both Joanna and Trevor Leggett (Episodes 13,14,15). In it, they describe how they bought and passionately renovated many buildings in the small French village of La Rochebeaucourt in Argentine. It is from here that they now run Leggett Immobilier International headquarters – with over 650 agents and over 100 salaried staff.

The description for “Help! We Bought a Village” reads

“Intrepid Brits restore empty and unloved settlements heading steadily for collapse, as they breathe new life into remote villages, hamlets, borgos and cortijos abroad ”. CHANNEL FOUR TV
