I could prrrooobably find a friend of a friend that could help and we some questions OR there are free regional magazines for English residences that advertise group meetings and even services exactly like you are seeking. So I can't answer your questions directly, but if you'd like, I could try and help guide you towards someone who can.

France is full of wonderful properties and they love there food ( wine is also available ) Have you guys kids ? as there are hundereds of villages crying out for children to keep the schools going where you will be welcomed with open arms. How is your french ?mine is terrable but I keep smiling and trying and folks like that. Yes there are some grumps but where in the world are they not ?
Joint ownership is not a problem as I know quite a few properties like that . What exactly are you going to live on ? Growing stuff fine but once you try to sell stuff life becomes so much more difficult involving paper work by the tonne . plus health and saftey stuff so beware ...yet ... in the country in the little places folks dont seem to give a toss frankly Here in Anjou at our local market there are a row of mostly elderly locals who sell there garden stuff and no one seems to care at all whilst when I lived in a big town you never saw stuff like that .

climate change is noticeable here in france since i have come and some places get floods, very strong winds, heavy dumps of snow etc.
how the French system deal with multiple ownership? Can you build on agriculture land (don't think so from the little that I've read), can you agriculture on building land?
