Set in beautiful rolling countryside in a private situation just 3 minutes drive from the local village with basic shopping, this beautiful and spacious property has been created to offer comfortable living in idyllic surroundings.
Nestled in the heart of the Lot et Garronne countryside, there are good shopping facilities in Marmande as well as airport links at either Bergerac or Bordeaux (both approximately 1 hour away). There are also excellent TGV train links to Bordeaux either from Tonneins (15mins) or Marmande (20mins).
The property, sympathetically renovated in 2009, and surrounded by beautiful rolling hills, consists of a collection of buildings that create the perfect space for the Mediterranean style courtyard garden. The courtyard is partially paved and benefits from an established olive tree and central water feature, creating a cool and calm atmosphere. The buildings showcase the local stone and terracotta tiles which, along with the different roof lines, exposed wooden beams throughout and tiled or wooden floors, oozes character and charm. The property has modern fixtures and fittings, including electric window blinds. Despite its private location at the end of a long road and drive, it has the added bonus of 4G and excellent WiFi speeds.
