Details

This traditional Aquitaine farmhouse dating back about 200 years with wonderful views has been carefully converted into a tranquil family home among vineyards & surrounded by its own land with flower pastures, mature trees and streams. It is a peaceful retreat with spacious rooms and lovely grounds which have not seen chemicals for many years and are a haven for butterflies, bees and wild flowers. With views over unspoilt countryside and vineyards and a beautiful tree lined avenue leading up through the private parkland, this gracious old country property is full of character and offers spacious accommodation; 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a double height living room, dining room, fitted kitchen and utility room. The house is quiet and private sitting in the midst of its well managed grounds with lovely mature trees and a large secluded fenced swimming pool. There is a large integral garage.The house is midway between the lovely towns of Eymet and Duras. Bergerac airport is 30km away and the wonderful city of Bordeaux is easily accessible by train or car and future SNCF plans include direct trains from London to Bordeaux.

Thick stone walls keep the house cool in the summer months, the wisteria covered terrace is a haven for al fresco meals and in the winter 2 efficient woodburners and a top quality oil central heating boiler keep the house warm.

The house exudes a warm charm and has been lovingly maintained with care to preserve the original features including doors and wonderful beams. The way the rooms are configured including the intergral garage would make it easy to create a self contained apartment without impinging on the privacy of the other accomodation.

This area of Aquitaine has a fascinating history with many beautiful chateaux, churches, walled towns. It produces some of the best wines in France with world renowned vineyards and wonderful restaurants. Many of the local towns hold weekly produce markets with local farmer selling produce, meats, and home made preserves and local specialities. It is a beautiful primarily agricultural area with quiet local roads ideal for cycling and walking and peaceful family holidays. The climate in SW France is mild with 4 distinct seasons, short winters, pretty springs, mellow autumns and sunny hot summers.
