Location description from owner

The Aquitaine region

Lot and Garonne is situated in the Aquitaine region in the South West of France. Also known by its historical name of Gascony, the region is one of outstanding natural beauty, steeped in history and benefiting from a warm climate from spring to late autumn.The region is also known as one of the best, if not the best, gastronomic centres of France and is home to the world famous Fois gras and truffles. Indeed, the immediate locality surrounding the properties is at the heart of the truffle industry in France with the local village of Prayssas being renowned for its annual truffle market. Not surprisingly, the local restaurants are renowned for their cuisine and in particular the use of local produce. The region boasts 3 main rivers, with the Dordogne in the north, the Lot in the centre and the Garonne towards the south. The property is located in the hills between the Garonne and Lot valleys and therefore boasts some stunning scenery.

Prayssas

The region is blessed with wonderful countryside and historical places of interest, so is ideal for both passive and more active pursuits.There is an almost endless list of places to visit in the area, from wonderful scenery, ancient villages, beautiful architecture and sites of outstanding natural beauty. Villages and townsThe local village of Prayssas is just 4kms away. This old bastide village is full of life in the summer months, extremely pretty and boasts all facilities, shops, restaurants, bar, post office, pharmacy and medical centre. Visit www.prayssas.com for more info.The area boasts some fine examples of bastide (fortified) villages. Pujols is only 15 mins away and is exceptionally pretty. Slighty further afield (30 mins) is Penne d’Agenias, an excellent example of a bastide village and extremely pretty.The two local towns (both approx 20 mins away) are Agen and Villenueve sur Lot. Both are very attractive and have excellent pedestrianised shopping areas in the town centres and a number of commercial centres on the outskirts with hypermarkets and other retail outlets.
