Both enjoy 2 bedrooms and bathrooms and good-sized living areas. There are various outbuildings and a small house that could be renovated into a third gite.

The location is a real strength. It is quiet, peaceful and semi-rural but close to shops, restaurants and leisure facilities such as the river Lot as a superb base for cycling, kayaking etc. Bergerac airport is about 45 minutes away.

After entering the property through iron gates, you reach a charming courtyard area leading to different areas of the property:

Main House

The main, owners' house (which could be a chambre d'hote) is accessed from this courtyard via a sunny terrace (27 m2 is covered) with ample space for seating and outdoor dining. Inside, the entrance hall (11.3 m2) gives on to the kitchen (12 m2) which is fully fitted to a high standard with built in oven and hob. Opposite there is a large utility room (9.6 m2), which contains the hot water cylinder and a unit for the solar panel. This part of the ground floor leads on to a downstairs WC and further to bedroom 1 (16 m2) featuring double glazed french doors on to the terrace and a newly refurbished ensuite shower room (7 m2). The final part of the ground floor is the substantial lounge/dining room (102 m2) offering a variety of seating and dining layout options. The focal points are the woodburner (with back boiler) at one end of the room and the two sets of large, double glazed doors at the other end, giving light and airiness to the room.

On the first floor a landing (min 7.7 m2) gives on to bedroom 2 (13.2 m2) with ensuite shower room (2.3 m2), two further bedrooms (13.2 m2 and 15 m2), the family bathroom (7 m2) and W.C.
