General Description

Situated in a peaceful rural location of Lot-et-Garonne and adjoining Aquitaine and the Dordogne, this is a light, bright and charming turreted chateau from the early 18th century with beautiful countryside views. The house sleeps up to 12 guests in total comfort. It is lovingly furnished to a very high standard, with a tasteful mix of antique and contemporary furniture. It is full of period features without sacrificing any homliness, comfort or charm. A north facing terrace at the back of the house (as well as the sumptuous acre of grounds surrounding the house) provide plenty of sunny and shaded outdoor space. This is one chateau that's primarily designed to be flexible - there are plenty of areas for play, where families can enjoy each other’s company, as well as quieter nooks for those who prefer to read a book or snooze in peace. Set in three hectares of grounds and farmland, the chateau boasts stunning country views. The house is surrounded by its gardens and mature trees, and the pool faces south to ensure it gets as much of the glorious French sunshine as possible!
