This beautiful farmhouse with additional accommodation is attached to a vineyard in some 85 acres of the most stunning French countryside. The distant views are breathtaking and totally unspoilt, deer inhabit the parkland in front of the house. A stream runs through the privately owned valley below the property - there are pools in which to fish - and no neighbours to spoil this charming hideaway.

The estate is home to a 14 acre vineyard producing a Bergerac Red, Bergerac Sec (white) and Saussignac (sweet). Formerly owned by Kiri Te Kanawa this home is dearly loved and beautifully furnished making it extremely comfortable and relaxing.

There are many pretty Bastide Villages nearby such as Duras, Eymet and Sainte Foy La Grande. Bergerac Airport is twenty minutes away. There are daily markets within a few miles of the house, and the Chateau des Vigiers Golf and Country Club is five minutes North of the property.

Coutures

There are lots of things to do - especially during the summer months. Try the annual Jazz festival, The 24 hours of Swing at Monsegur, take in pretty Issigeac or sample the delights of the 'Art de la Rue' in Miramont - see the street artists in action. The medieval festivals are worth a visit - they take place along the Dropt valley during August.
