If you’ve been dreaming of finding a quintessentially French property in a sublime, rural setting, but only a short drive from one of the most beautiful and sought-after towns in the Dordogne with all amenities, then this superb property could be the one to make those dreams come true!

Located close to the stunning town of Brantome with its picture-postcard riverside scenes, Benedictine abbey, and fabulous restaurants, this property would make the ideal holiday home or permanent home. It is easily accessible from three airports, Bergerac (1h15), Limoges (1hr 20) and Bordeaux (1hr45), all of which have regular flights to the UK and more routes opening all the time, including a new British Airways route to Bergerac from London City during the Summer months.

Nestled in 4 acres of its own land, with its own millstream and small lake, this very large residence has an overriding sense of grandeur from the enormous living/dining room with its high, beamed ceilings, to the sumptuous Master bedroom suite with its luxurious freestanding bath and own log-burning stove. It is the perfect property for large or extended families, or anyone looking for an income-generating proposition. Built in 1853, it could easily be divided into two adjoining dwellings with one part rented out as a gite, or it could be run as a B&B with letting rooms to supplement income. There is also the charming millhouse on site and granary store, complete with their original machinery, which, once renovated, could also provide further income-generating accommodation.
Whether for your own personal use, or for holiday rentals, this property and its location offer the ultimate haven of rural peace and tranquility, drenched in Dordogne sunshine. The perfect retreat from the stresses and strains of busy lives. As you lie by the pool, the dulcet sound of the gently ebbing millstream further adds to the sensation of restorative relaxation.
A Must-See property!

The accommodation has been created by converting a traditional stone farmhouse and its adjoining barn into living space. The barn conversion part of the property has extremely large living spaces, which would lend themselves perfectly to entertaining large numbers, or to being used as a communal space in a B&B type arrangement, or communal classes like yoga, pilates, or even a restaurant of some description. The rooms that were in the original farmhouse part of the property are regular sized. For this reason, the property could be divided into owner’s accommodation and letting rooms or split into 2 gites that could be rented out individually or together as one large property.

Entrance Hall – 7.5x4.6m (35m2)
A very large, room with the original animal feeding troughs still in evidence. You are immediately introduced to the calming neutral tones that you find throughout the interior of the property – the light, exposed stone walls and floors, juxtaposed with warm browns of the wooden ceiling beams and wooden window and door frames, contrasting with the warmer russet tones of the herringbone briquette feature. This is the theme throughout the entire property. The only difference is there are wooden floors upstairs instead of stone floors.
