    Philip Gibbs has just completed a large electrical job for me. Throughout he was clean, punctual and very professional. He is conversant in both French and English, which was a great help in liaising with three French artisans, who were involved in completing other works.
    I highly recommend him. He won’t disappoint.

    Arrived on time , walked round to understand the job and cracked straight on with it , they are brilliant . Even took the time to clean the areas that had been working as they moved through the job list – Thanks Guys – your work is tip top , can’t thank you enough – Paul

    Phil is great – 100% reliable, efficient and trustworthy. Knows what he’s doing AND the safety regulations involved! Which is more than I can say for a good number of tradesmen in this departement. He’s done minor bits and pieces for us, and a full rewire – would recommend him 100%. Totally professional and at a good price. Don’t know if there’s cheaper than him out there – but you gets what you pays for. I tried another electrician (more fool me!) – Phil is currently correcting the mistakes. If Phil does your electrics you KNOW they will work correctly and safely first time.

    I’m french and Phil went at home on friend recommendation.He is very serious. He went on time for device and good advice. Then sent me a device very professional + insurance. I had to install a Jacuzzi with a lot of standards. He had to reniew an old electricity installation (triphase). Device prices have been respected and very acceptables comparing to other companies I asked.He planed days to work and honored these days which is not frequent for artisan !! All was protected and when leaving, all was cleaned by himself. I highly recommend Phil.

    Phil Gibbs has just finished removing 12 old spotlights in my kitchen and replacing them with eight modern ones ;having given it some thought he then drilled new holes in a pattern that looked much better than the original ones; I am delighted with his work. he also repaired my garage electrics.
    He works hard and fast and arrives when he says he will and leaves the place clean and tidy when he leaves.
    I strongly recommend Phil as the best electrician in town;

    One night recently, we lost power to our refrigerator, and several other appliances and light fixtures when a fuse blew, and after flipping all the fuses belonging to that interrupter, there was still one which we could not reset. Since everything that we could see seemed to be up and running just fine again, we decided that that fuse wasn’t so important and didn’t think anything more about it for the moment. It was a day later, when we suddenly discovered that we had very little hot water that we realized that that uncooperative fuse belonged to our hot water heater.
    Having heard nothing but positive reviews about Phil Gibbs’ work from friends who had used him on their major home renovation projects, we took a chance and called him to see if he could help us with, what we were afraid, would be too small of a job for him to want to bother with. We were very pleasantly surprised when Phil immediately agreed to try to fit in a visit to our apartment that day, in between his other meetings with clients. He showed up a few hours later, determined where he thought the problem lay, and advised that we needed to get in a plumber. Since we didn’t know any plumbers, Phil stayed to call around for us until he found one who promised he could be there in an hour. His charge for all this was remarkably reasonable.
    You would be hard pressed to find a more pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable electrician and we would wholeheartedly recommend Phil.

    Phil did an excellent job on a complex project joining two ancient stone village houses into one fully functioning and updated electrical system. He installed new wiring in one house, updating the existing electrical panel, connected the new wiring to the updated electrical panel, installed an earth that was lacking, corrected dangerous and improper wiring done during previous renovation. We are now ready to safely enter the 21st Century. Phil is a pleasure to work with. He shows up when he says and works hard. He explains your options and his prices are fair. He is insured. You get what you pay for. I highly recommend Phil.

    Like many of us embarking on renovations, it is all too easy to opt for the cash in hand option rather than the devis. In my ignorance, I did exactly this. My elec system installed via my builder was so dangerous there isn’t enough space here to detail it. For the record, the person who did my electrics is Dutch and still works from Ceret.

    Phil Gibbs was recommended to me after I had a critical failure in my home. Phil did a ‘due diligence’ to see how my elecs were set up. To summarise, my home’s electrics hadn’t been earthed and in some instances, the earth was used as the negative feed! There was no lightning protection installed and the main Earth was not sized correctly.

    Phil came in and went through my apology for an elec system. He explained what was wrong; why it was wrong and the remedial work required. Phil documented everything he did and was transparent in every respect. Phil has his City and Guilds plus many years hands on experience which supports customer reliability and trade competency.

    All I can say is this: if you value your home and family, and you wish to upgrade yr elec, please choose someone who knows what they’re doing. Phil Gibbs is an asset.

    Highly recommend Phil. Extremely professional and very trustworthy. Fully insured. The quality of his work is excellent, a very high standard. He arrives on time, rarely takes a break, gets on with the job, and cleans up thoroughly at the end of each day. Nothing was too much trouble for him, he offered great advice without being pushy. On top of that he’s a really nice guy. I can’t speak highly enough of him. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others. Great to find a genuine tradesman who takes a pride in his work.

    Phil has just finished a complete rewire of our old stone house, which was obviously a difficult and messy operation. During the consultation and planning of sockets, light fittings etc prior to the start of work (with us changing our mind all the time) he was patient and nothing was too much trouble or too difficult. We were happy to leave the house under his supervision for the 12 days that the job took to complete and on our return it was clean and tidy. Would thoroughly recommend Phil and would employ him again.

    Phil did some electrical work for us when we were replacing our kitchen. We were very happy with the standard of his work and the fact that the work was done to the correct timescale. Also that our house was left so clean and tidy at the end of each working day. We also appreciated his recommendation of a kitchen fitter and the fact they worked so well together. Happy to recommend this service.

    Phil has just completed the electrics on our 2nd renovation and we are very happy with his work. Not only is he a great electrician, he is very approachable and patient. Believe me when doing a renovation in France the stress levels are high and with a woman (me) changing her mind on sockets and wall lights on a fairly regular basis his patience was amazing. I have a lot of vintage (1930s) light fittings and he is not only adept at putting them up he has a very good eye and can advise on what will look best where. He manages our (the client’s) expectations and is a delight to have around. We have no reservations about recommending him.
    One other thing. I should mention that, oh joy, he always turns up when he says he will!!!

    Phil has undertaken extensive work on our property since we arrived in France, and has been incredibly helpful with his advice and time. He is diligent and the quality of his work is next to none. He has always found solutions and provided options to resolve difficult problems with our electrics and other related problems, and has responded quickly to any issues or questions we have had. Phil is totally reliable and trustworthy, he delivers high quality at a very fair price and is fully insured for all the work undertaken. I cannot recommend him enough, he has been generous with his time and advice regarding the many issues with our renovations, which has been invaluable especially for people new to the region, it’s regulations and culture. We will continue to Phil when needed.
    Thanks mate

    Phil has been working on a complete rewire in our old stone village house – a messy, difficult job. His advice and help has been exceptional and he has gone out of his way to help us with all aspects of the renovation project. Very reliable and clean – I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend his work to others.

    I highly recommend Phil’s work. He’s carried out a lot of electrical work for us over the past two years, including a full house and apartment rewiring. He did all the electrics for our sous sol renovation. He’s reliable, conscientious, skilled and also a great guy!

    A hard working electrician who is fully conversant with French regulations. Phil offers a flexible approach to ensure that work can be completed at a reasonable cost to meet the requirements of his customers and those of the regulatory services.

    Highly recommended.
