The setting of the house is exceptional with its fabulous views of the surrounding countryside.

Steps up from the terrace lead to the front of the house and the hamlet.

The owners who live in the hamlet can provide meals - further details on request.

Interior

The interior is beautifully decorated in an eclectic mixture of antiques and impressive modern paintings. There are many levels inside the house with a few steps between each. The large living room is at ground level and leads into the master double bedroom (2 x 80cm beds can be made up as double or twin) which also has an additional single bed (90cm); a few steps lead up to a bathroom and an adjacent double bedroom (2 x 80cm beds can be made up as double or twin).

A very large bedroom with a double bed (160cm) on an upper level and a single bed (90cm) on a lower level leads directly via a few steps into a spacious loft space with a double bed (2 x 80cm beds can be made up as double or twin), a small double bed (120cm), a single bed (90cm) and a shower room to one side, as well as a separate wc.

At a lower level is a spacious attractive dining room with a small well-equipped kitchen area, opening onto a covered terrace which enjoys fantastic views of the countryside. There is also a wc next to a laundry room at this level.

This floor plan was prepared in good faith and may not be exactly to scale.

Although perhaps less picture-postcard pretty than the Dordogne, the Lot-et-Garonne has a particular charm of its own. One of the smallest départements in France, it nevertheless has plenty of interesting places to visit, including the most bastide towns, scattered throughout the very pleasant, mostly agricultural landscape. Monflanquin, Villeréal, and the château at Duras give testimony to battles fought long ago. Villeneuve-sur-Lot is a pleasant riverside bastide town with an attractive old quarter, and nearby 13th century Penne d’Agenais with narrow alleys winding up to the top of a hill where a more modern basilica perches, Peyragude, a small-scale version of Sacré Coeur. Another fortified village, Vianne, has become a famous centre for fine crystal glassworks, and is known for its vibrant Friday marché nocturne. Agen, on the Garonne, boasts the best art museum in the area with several paintings by Goya. For a hopefully leisurely day’s outing, you can hire a small boat to cruise down the River Baïse, starting at Nérac, Henri IV’s youthful residence, which also has a fine market.

The setting is enchanting and the house very beautiful with its historic walls in harmony with the local church, and a surprising modern art collection. You can stroll over to the restaurant or just absorb the relaxing views from the terrace.
