Here is a link to the official Notiares de France website in English. There’s information on current legislation and a search facility where you can find a notaire and specify the language required.
@ Nick - ditto - I always check stuff out on there.
I see legifrance is on there as one of their useful links. Must admit, I am a bit of a fan of Legifrance www.legifrance.gouv.fr as it is goverment run and all of the information is up to date.
It contains all the current codes and laws (Even the constitution of the fifth république!)
