Standing in the grounds of a fine 18th century Château a mere 1.8km from the pretty bastide town of Eymet, this attractively restored and very popular property enjoys an unquestionably picturesque setting; château and courtyard to the rear with the house looking out across its own private grounds of mature trees, rolling lawns and large swimming pool.

The work of the caring owner is clear to see in the charming interior, where hand carved furniture is complemented by tastefully chosen fabrics. The original fine stone fireplace dominates one wall of the dining room, whilst the neighbouring well equipped kitchen boasts all the comforts of modern day living. Throughout, the tall windows that line the front of the house provide clear views across the pool and garden and create bright and cheerful rooms.

Outside, keen swimmers will be delighted by the generous proportions of the swimming pool. Measuring 13m by 7m, it is one of the largest in our portfolio of French houses. To the side stands an impressive barbecue house and beyond, a lovely garden of wide lawns, dotted with shady trees, stretches down to the river that skirts the boundary.

A range of local shops and restaurants can be found in nearby Eymet, which can be reached on foot. Alternatively, a 30 minute drive past the fields of well ordered vineyards that are so typical of this area takes you to the attractive centre of Bergerac, with its fascinating old centre of narrow streets and well preserved historic buildings.

  • The owner lives on the estate in the château behind the property. She does not use any of the facilities and your privacy is fully respected.
  • Arrival time is from 17:00.
