The village manor house now offers exceptionally spacious 8 bedroom accommodation plus a studio and guardian’s apartment, and a swimming pool and an open outlook to
countryside. An ideal home for a large family or indeed to run as an up market bed and breakfast business.
Between Agen and Bordeaux with Bordeaux airport just 60minutes away, also Toulouse and Bergerac.
Set on the very edge of a small village, in an elevated position and with panoramic views to the countryside. Parking available outside, or drive in through the ancient gatehouse to park in the courtyard.

The manor looks out over a 1.5 hectare field across the road. To the side there are flat lawn gardens with views and flowering trees, ideal for summer dining.

Alongside the pool is a self contained guest studio (60m2) with open plan living/bedroom/kitchen area and separate shower room.
To the rear of the house is an enclosed courtyard with old bread oven, prune oven, wine cellar. The ancient gatehouse has been re-roofed and would well suit a small gite conversion (subject to planning permission).
On the end of the house, in what used to be the lookout tower, is an apartment (80m2) comprising a spacious living/kitchen, large double bedroom and bathroom.
Currently used by a caretaker this too could be a holiday let.

from Bed & Breakfast plus 2 separate studios and also a possible gite in the old gatehouse.
