In the Aisne Valley, a land of history radically changed by the conflicts that have marked the people, the stones and the landscape. In the heart of an extensive countryside, the stubborn abundance of which is gradually erasing the traces. In a small peaceful village, surrounded by a rich, historic and natural heritage, between waterfall and fountain, castle and hospice, mill and priory. In the shade of the church, near to several market towns and less than 30 minutes from the main regional towns.
The site is tranquil, the setting pleasant.
Recently elected the “French people’s favourite village”, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie is without doubt one of the most beautiful sites in France. Standing on a rocky cliff, its dominant position makes a superb lookout over the surrounding countryside and the meandering river Lot which flows between sheer cliffs, wooded hills and green plains crisscrossed by a multitude of rivers and streams forming the Quercy Causses Regional Nature Park. This region has a concentration of exceptional sites created by nature and mankind that includes such gems as the towns of Rocamadour and Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, Pech-Merle cave, the Dordogne valley in the French department of Lot and the Padirac sinkhole.
In an area called the Gatine, where the landscape alternates between small hedged pastures and broadleaf woods. 380 km south of Paris and 45 min drive from Poitiers-Biard airport with direct flights to London, Edinburgh and other European capitals. Close to the medieval and touristic town of Parthenay which offers all services and commodities that one needs.
On the edge of a national forest of beech and oak trees, in the hollow of a valley crossed by a rivulet.
In the heart of a small peaceful village, between stone houses and pastoral gardens separated by just a few streets.
On this side of an outstanding church, near to a former fortified castle and a Renaissance castle, a property that is home to celebrities.
In the Therain Valley, between picturesque, rustic unspoilt countryside and buildings bearing witness to history and heritage.
Just a few minutes from a large market town and a small town, and less than half an hour from the region’s main tourist towns.
Approx. one hour from Paris, and half an hour from Roissy-CDG and Beauvais-Tillé.
The setting is charming and the surroundings pleasant.
Two hours away from Paris, via the A13 motorway which can be accessed 4 km (2.5 miles) away. Deauville is easily reached in 15 minutes via the countryside. All shops and schools are 5 minutes away by car as this property stands on the outskirts of a village which does not have any. Normandy grasslands extend down to the sea behind the property.
