Orientation Visits

Moving to a new town, city or country can be a daunting prospect.  If you’re not familiar with the region, it’s difficult to work out where you should be looking to live… which are the best areas; where are the facilities and services you need; just how do you find the right location for you?

That’s where we can help.

If you’re struggling to find your ideal location, then why not take one of our personally-tailored exploratory visits, designed to show you exactly what you need to see?

One day of area orientation… showing you around and giving you a feel for the area, pointing out any features of special relevance to you and your family.

With accompanied inspection of selected properties… helping you understand what’s available and what you can achieve for your budget.

Plus pre-arranged school visits (as appropriate)… because finding the right new school can be one of the most time-consuming elements of any family move, but this puts you ahead of the game!

Just one day spent assessing your possible new “home town” at the start of the process can save you a lot of time, expense and stress further down the relocation line.
