In a peaceful rural location in Lot-et-Garonne, adjoining Aquitaine and the Dordogne, 4 km from the pretty village of Seyches, Le Bouge is a light, bright and charming early 18th century turreted petit chateau with beautiful countryside views.

Set in three hectares of grounds and farmland, the property boasts lovely country views. The house is surrounded by its gardens and mature trees. The south-facing heated pool measures 11m x 5m.

The house sleeps upto 12 people comfortably and has five bedrooms, one bathroom and three shower rooms. It is lovingly furnished to a very high standard, with a tasteful mix of antique and contemporary furniture. It is full of period features but is also homely and comfortable.

The substantial eat-in kitchen and living areas are on the ground floor, comprising a formal dining room, sitting room, a study and an intimate salon. There are four bedrooms on the first floor, and all come with pretty, leafy views. The master suite has its own sitting room and is set across the entire second floor of the property. Most rooms have dual aspect windows.

The chateau is ideally located for exploring the gastronomic delights of Aquitaine, the beauty of the Dordogne and Lot-et-Garonne. The Bordeaux vineyards are within easy reach - Unesco World Heritage St. Emilion wine area is less than an hour away. The Perigord truffle region is also close by.
