The property is situated in the “Golden Triangle”: just 10 minutes from Lectoure and 40 minutes from Agen (featuring a high-speed rail connection to Paris (3h10) and an airport with flights to Paris and the UK).
The village, an ancient “castlelnau” (medieval feudal territory), is situated on a hilltop overlooking the surrounding countryside. Already set in a remarkably serene landscape, its secluded access grants it even more peace and quiet. The surrounding topography made it impossible to follow the historical conventions of the Roman castrum layout: normally, a rectangular plan with straight streets organized at right angles around a central square. Instead, the village is a veritable labyrinth of alleyways, giving it a distinctly Italian (itself originally inspired by Greece!) feel and emphasizing the ties that have linked Gascony and Italy since the Middle Ages.
The two houses are linked by two small courtyards and a skybridge on the upper level. An interesting architectural feature: contrary to expectation, the two conjoined courtyards are not situated street level; the slope of the streets resulted in the courtyards being set over a newly-built garage so that they remain on a level plane. Thus, the ground surface is neither stone nor brick, but of weatherproof wooden decking. The walls are of rendered quarry stone, and thus provide excellent natural insulation. Both houses are roofed with traditional wooden rafters covered with Spanish tile. One of the buildings is flanked by an ancient tower, which houses the main staircase and overlooks the courtyards. Double- or single- tile cornices, several French door bays painted grey, and Italian-style shutters make up the properties’ most notable external features. The interior facade is offset by arched floor-to-ceiling windows, which add an elegant, classic touch amid the rural surroundings. The slightly offset siting of the two houses with respect to one another is in itself fascinating, and creates a play of light and shade which changes throughout the day; showing the overall property, quite literally, in its best light.
The House Opposite
For those who enjoy entertaining and allowing guests to feel at home, it is quite practical to have close but separate quarters for hosts and guests; such is the case here. Across from the main house stands a smaller property, which needs only interior updating to become a 5-star guest residence. The building’s exterior is appealing, even elegant, and in excellent condition; but the interior would benefit from a complete restyling (its 1960s-era interior does little justice to the stylistic harmony of the house).
Covering a surface-area of 148 m2 divided over two levels, the layout of this house offers a pleasant, intimate living space. A full-height cellar is also accessible via a staircase.
This property offers the dual pleasures of living in France amid a landscape that evokes the Italian countryside. Silence reigns along the steep, winding streets, where a single car – let alone heavy traffic – would seem out of place. The eye is drawn to fields of orange and meadows and groves of green in the surrounding hills. The main residence of the property is not only in excellent condition, but the harmonization and layout of its various spaces is seamless. What’s more, no detail has been overlooked in ensuring maximum comfort: the ultimate destination for residents seeking a haven of tranquil delight. The inclusion of the third house is an added bonus for those who chose to remodel it, whether for their own use or as a guest house for visitors.
