A fantastically renovated 19th Century Chateau that resonates luxury and tranquillity throughout. Consisting of a main Chateau, a large two bedroom gite and a variety of spacious outbuildings, this property needs no further renovation at all. The current owners have spared no expense and restored to an extremely high standard. The property has enormous charisma and charm, with plenty of original features such as exposed beams and masonry.

Perfectly presented it sits in an idyllic riverside location, offering 100m of river frontage and views. With just over two hectares of land, it offers privacy and serenity, the grounds also enjoy a pristine and large swimming pool.

Currently run as a luxury holiday rental destination, it is an ideal turnkey operation, but it could equally be an expansive main residence or secondary home with plenty of room for family and other guests. The grounds and outbuildings also present the possibility of a destination for events such as weddings, seminars and retreats. The river frontage is truly special and unique, with its own private jetty guests and owners a like enjoy being able to canoe and other such water activities as well as the peacefulness it provides.

The Chateau is set apart from the gite affording a degree of separation and privacy if so required. The ground floor has flagstone flooring throughout with a wonderfully expansive and sumptuous kitchen. This area enjoys a great deal of natural light, as spans the width of the property with double doors leading onto the terrace and also to the front of the property. There is also a large utility room, workshop and pantry to one side. This leads into an area that has been converted for entertaining, which is perfect for events with a large bar.
Above this is a large undeveloped space that could easily be converted if desired. There are handsome original wooden stairs leading up to the first floor from the middle of the kitchen.

The main living room and games room is next to this, both equipped with wood burners. The dining room encompasses the entire width of the property with double doors at either end. The first double bedroom, occasionally utilised as a second living room, is also on the ground floor, this has its own private dressing area and wet room with WC.

A magnificent original stone spiral staircase leads upstairs, where there are oak floorboards throughout with a further six large double bedrooms all with their own baths and WCs. Sitting in between these bedrooms is a seating area or library, offering stunning views of the river.

Outside, the garden is immaculately presented and has an open terrace at the back of the property. The swimming pool is positioned in the centre of the grounds and has an absolutely fantastic covered area that includes a fully equipped summer kitchen. Simply a marvellous spot for enjoying the weather and cooling off in the pool whilst also being able to enjoy an apero and some al fresco dining!

The gite is tiled throughout and laid out all on the ground floor. There is a large open plan living area and fully equipped modern kitchen. There are two double bedrooms and a bathroom. The outbuildings are spacious and currently used for storage of equipment, but also offer an opportunity for further living space.

Villeneuve-sur-Lot is 20 minutes away, with the larger town of Agen being 45 minutes. Bergerac, with its international airport is also a 45 minute drive.

This is a wonderful property that has so much to offer – a perfect opportunity to embrace the quietude, beauty and lifestyle that South West France has to offer!
