Testimonial Mr& Mrs Smith - Gourin


We have used Vince for the past few years for our usual boiler servicing and maintenance and he has always been brilliant, efficient, friendly and excellent at his job. Recently, following a flood, our boiler needed totally replacing. Despite this happening at the worst time of year (just before Christmas) Vince quickly provided a quote and did the full job in 21/2 days, as soon as the insurance company gave the go ahead. The job was done to a very high standard, everything left clean and tidy and he ensured that everything was working properly. He also takes time to explain how things work so that you know what you are doing with new equipment.  Vince and Karen (who runs the office) are highly professional but also very pleasant to deal with. We have used others in the past but we have never been as happy as we are with Vince, we would not dream of using anyone else. Outstanding service. Mr & Mrs Smith -  Jan 2021

Testimonial - Nadya Huston - Huelgoat


Vince Boon and his team are very professional, efficient, and caring towards their clients. Their quotes are fair, their scheduling is fully dependable, and their standard of workmanship is impeccable. The quality of equipment that Vince installs is top notch, and his attention to details in his work (which other professionals had ignored) is laudable, creating a much better finished product and performance. He changed my heating system for my whole house and now not only is it working better than the old system, it's actually costing me only one fifth of what I paid before to heat my house. And the heat is actually better and more consistent, and the system is completely whisper quiet. In addition, Vince is an absolutely wonderful human being, who takes pride in his work and really cares that one’s system functions perfectly. He stands behind his work 100%, so one really can rest easy with full peace of mind that one is in good hands.


Thank you so, so much Vince and Karen,


Testimonial - Simon & Emma Baker

Vince has been a lifesaver since we bought our property in France. 

He went out of his way to keep our (very) old boiler running and when it did finally give up the ghost he was there to advise on the way forward. 

The whole process from quote to commissioning was seamless (with excellent communication via Karen) and we now have a smaller, quieter, safer and far more efficient system that we'll be able to rely on for years  to come. 

We'd recommend him in a heartbeat. 


Simon and Emma Baker. 

 Testimonial -  Dave & Heather Shepard

Many thanks to Vince Boon who recently installed a replacement wood burning stove for my husband and me at Corlay. 

The work was done efficiently and in a timely manner.

 We are very satisfied with the outcome and the fire is working very much to our satisfaction.

 We would certainly consider Vince should we need work carried out in the future, of an appropriate nature.

Dave and Heather Sheppard

Testimonial - Diane & Martin Lund - La Cheze

Vince and the team - fitted a new log burner to replace our overly large and outdated log burner it is brilliant now, we would like to thank you for the effort you put in, removing the old log burner, timing the new one so it left us time to paint the wall behind where the new Poele  Astana now takes pride of place.

It has made such a great difference to our house, the transition appeared to take place seamlessly.

Many thanks to all at Vince Boon Heating Solutions.

Testimonial - John and Marj Hargreaves.  Mael Carhaix


Vince has been our Heating Engineer for the last eight years.  During this time he has serviced our old boiler and installed a new efficient oil central heating boiler.  His workmanship has always been of excellent standard and quality.   We have always found Vince to be a reliable, honest and a  trustworthy Artisan and would have no hesitation in recommending his business.




Testimonial - Laura Cheesman.


We had Vince install our two wood burners in our French house in Brittany and he did a very professional job for us. He is knowledgable and reliable and I would certainly recommend him to anyone thank you Laura

Testimonial - Jane Clark


We have had Vince install three wood stoves for us now. One in our previous house and two in our new home. We have been delighted with his professionalism on both occasions. He turns up exactly when he says he is coming, does exactly what he says he would do, at exactly the price he quoted us. He's friendly, easy going, professional to have around the house too, as he's polite and easy to work with. 


Thanks again to Vince and I always recommend him to everyone.

Testimonial - Ian & Jean McNab

Vince has done work for us since we arrived in France. The service we have received from Vince has always been excellent, and nothing is too much trouble. He recently fitted an insert pellet stove for us which we are delighted with. Would highly recommend Vince to anyone. Ian & Jean McNab

Testimonial - Peter & Sue MCDermott


Hi Karen,

Sue my wife and I haven’t stopped talking about the thoughtful service you gave us yesterday re helping us over the phone with our boiler.You were so very patient and the outcome good.

What a great team you and Vince are.

Thanks once again

Ian (Peter) and Sue MCDermott 

Testimonial - Wendy Mckean - Mael-Carhaix


"We moved into our house a few months ago and very quickly realised that the central heating wasn't working as it should be.  We contacted Vince and he came round very quickly, despite his massive workload.  He identified a number of problems straight away and explained what needed to be done.  He got the parts and came back within the week and made the adjustments necessary.  The system then worked so efficiently he had to come back and make further adjustments!  It is now perfect and we have had to turn the thermostats down on the radiators as it was too hot!


Vince also swept the chimney where we have a wood burner, so that works better too.  All round Vince is the man to go to if you need a Heating Engineer, he is polite, works well, leaves everywhere clean and tidy, very highly recommended.  However, he does dehydrate very quickly so keep the coffee flowing..."

Testimonial - Dr Marodi-Palffy & Dr Paulson - Huelgoat

We’ve used VB plombier on several occasions here in Huelgoat.  The  most recent job was quite a complicated one and Vince was able to complete all the  required works to the satisfaction of the regulations and ourselves and  provided an excellent service as always. His pricing is fair and has often been  significantly more reasonable than others we’ve asked.  Even more importantly,  he is reliable, trustworthy and his work is of a high standard.  In case of emergency he is ready to come and well prepared. We would have  no hesitation in using Vince again or in recommending him to others. 

Testimonial - Andrew - Landeleau

I would highly recommend Vince from V B Plombier as he recently completed a full log burner change including new flue and chimney. This was completed whilst I was away and when I came back found the house to be nice and clean after all the messy work had been completed and he had left the old log burner as requested. The installation seems of a very good standard and I was kept informed at all times what was going on and after completion the relevant paperwork was e mailed to me for future reference /insurance purposes. I would not hesitate to use him again Many Thanks.

Testimonial - Frank and Sally - 22

Hi Karen,

That is brilliant, thank you both very much for all your hard work. Please pass on our huge thanks to Vince for really helping us, in what has been an extremely difficult situation.

I cannot thank Vince enough.

Kind regards and best wishes,

Frank and Sally.

Testimonial - Rob & Jane,  Merland

Recommended to us via Facebook. After many (less than positive) visits from various plombiers, Vince looked at our old boiler system, got it going, suggested a solution, and then came and fixed the problem. Nice people, great to deal with. Rob & Jane, Melrand.

Testimonial - David @ Brehan

Vince has recently installed a wood burner at our home and did a superb job in difficult circumstances.
Throughout the installation his approach was both cheerful and professional. The work was carried out to a high standard, in a tidy fashion and with minimum disruption to ourselves.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Vince and intend to use his services again in the future.

Testimonial - Andrew Meerza

“V B Plombier came to give an estimate for installing a log burner. The estimate was fair and I was given a date for the work. He arrived on time, did the job as he promised and charged what he estimated. I couldn’t have asked for any better service."I am happy for you to use my name - commune 22390

Testimonial - Graham & Pauline @ lanrivian

We have been using Vince for just over ten years – initially just for boiler services and repairs. Later he installed a complicated system of tanks and pumps to enable our spring water supply to work efficiently. He also replaced our old boiler, installing solar panels for hot water. Recently he installed mains water to the house and adapted the old system to supply water to the garden.

Vince is reliable and helpful –always ready to go the extra mile when dealing with a problem. He provides great service at a reasonable price and we have no hesitation in recommending him.

Testimonial - Les & Karen @ Laniscat

Vince fitted a wood pellet central heating boiler for us some time ago with which we have been very happy, but it has recently broken down. Vince came out on his normal rest day to repair it for us, it is now a warm house again!

I would recommend Vince for good common sense advice and honesty in a tradesman.  

Testimonial - Ann Watling @ Gourin

Hello Vince and Karen,

I thought you would be pleased to know that I have just had my electricity bill and have had 626 euros paid back.  That is nearly 1,000  litres of oil. That is because we are now heating the water by oil instead of electricity.  Just shows that it is cheaper than electric.  The heating has been great all winter. Hope you are both well.  Best wishes   Anne Watling

Testimonial - Nick Jackson - Truly outstanding work and service 

Despite really poor weather and the possibility that I had caused the problem with a relatively new wood burner install, Vince immediately turned out to help and cleared the flue blockage very quickly. Many thanks too to Karen who patiently dealt with my many emails and phone calls. I’d recommend V B PLOMBIER to anyone looking for Vince’s type of expertise. 

Testimonital - Pete Townsend -22290

Vince - testimonial, Here are a few words that hopefully you can use on the website, firstly i’d like to let you know I have used the fire quite a bit since it was installed and I am really pleased with everything.

We recently had Vince install a wood burning stove in our holiday home in Brittany and we were very pleased with the quality of the work and service provided.

The job was quite complex and Vince came up with solutions to manage the project and complete to an excellent standard.

Testimonial - Sally Dean Rostrenen

Vince installed a new oil-fired boiler and hot water tank for me, replacing a rather old and inefficient pair. He was very thorough and conscientious throughout, including re- routing pipes that had been wrapped around the old ballon d'eau chaude, leaving a much tidier configuration. He took away all the rubbish and cleaned up after his work was finished.The programmer was set up satisfactorily and he sorted out all the radiators; now I have an effective heating system and will definitely use his services again if the need arises.

Testimonial - Penny Smith

We have used Vince for all our plumbing and heating needs in our French house over the past 5 years and he is always reliable, efficient and totally honest.
How many plumbers can you call when you are on your own in the winter in France in the dark when your boiler breaks down and they turn up in half an hour to sort it? Well, none in France, except for Vince.
What a nice guy, I can call him from uk and he will appear at my house with key holder and sort t
he problems out. Totally reliable, friendly and reasonably priced. Thank You Vince

Testimonial - Karen and John Scanlon - Plélauff 

VB Plombier provided quality written quotations with full insurance for the installation of new flue liner and a new boiler heating system with hot water cylinder. The work was carried out on the day agreed and installation was of the highest quality/professionalism. On completion of installations a full detailed induction of how the system works ( boiler/water) was carried out by VB. All work areas were left clean & tidy and the whole operation was made a pleasant experience for us. I would have no hesitation in recommending  VB Plombier for all plumbing/heating installation and with their back up guarantee to give you that peace of mind.

Always a great job best thing we did and a great professional 

Testimonial - Mr and Mrs Clark 

V B plombier have installed two woodburning stoves at our property.  We received good advice on what we required, excellent service on the installations of stoves and new flues, also on going servicing.  We would highly recommend V B Plombier.

Testimonial  Malcolm & Anne Watling - Gourin

I had oil fired central heating  and a new hot water system installed in our four bedroom house.  I asked Vince for a devis which I accepted.  We agreed a time and he worked quickly and cleanly never seeming to stop.  Vince is professional, courteous and helpful and did the work on time and on budget.  I am delighted with the work Vince has done and can highly recommend him.

Testimonial - Kevin & Jackie Collins - 22320 St Mayeux. 

VB Plombier recently replaced our oil fired boiler and hot water system. As pensioners our money is important so to receive great service, quality products at a competitive price was more than we could have expected. Already booked in for our annual service which we will combine with the chimney being swept, as for after service due to the professionalism of the fitting not needed yet.
