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.
