Does anyone know if real estate transactions in France are public record or not?

Title to land in France is registered and registration of sale is by publication of the Acte de Vente. I seem to remember being told that the short delay between signing and actually receiving the money is due to this - in case there are any legal queries it has to be made public.

I think this is done at the prefecture of the Dept. No doubt someone (Clair?) will come up with a website.
