This little chateau stands between Monflanquin and Villeréal, two outstanding “bastides” (fortified towns), just a stone’s throw from the border of the French department of Dordogne. It is only 10 minutes from Cancon, the “hazelnut capital”.
This property is equidistant from Bergerac and Agen airports with their flights to Orly, England, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Bordeaux international airport is 140 km away, whilst that of Toulouse is 150 km away.
The heritage and tourist trade of the nearby Périgord region has become famous courtesy of sites such as Lascaux, Les-Eyzies, Beynac, Domme and many others.
The manor house
This little, 17th and 18th century chateau is reminiscent of a traditional chartreuse house, with its classical style facade, a central door, with a fan-shaped fanlight, stone pilaster framing and an upstairs under the roof. A tower stands at each end, both featuring very steep, tiled roofs. An example, no doubt, of the turret dovecotes, typical of the Upper Quercy region. These farm-manor houses were enhanced with corner towers, thereby associating rural and stately architecture.
The entrance courtyard provides access to a vast inner courtyard formed in the middle of the buildings, where the old living space and the outbuildings were joined by a central building in the 1950’s.
All the buildings have been renovated in accordance with good trade practices.
Garages open on to the courtyard via wide, slatted, wooden doors with windows. The first and bigger garage, able to take at least two cars, has a cement floor. In a corner is the pump which is connected to a well and used for watering purposes. The second, small, adjoining garage opens on to the courtyard via a superb stone archway. It has a packed mud floor. This section was, at one time, considered for a conversion project, intended to separate the generations.
The current owner being a car enthusiast, a third garage has been constructed adjoining the rear, extended by a small, very modest stable.
An impressive, circular, stone well enhances the inner courtyard. Deep and still providing water, it is extremely useful for watering the garden-parklands surrounding the house.
Near to the large swimming pool, a small, old building must once have been the manor house’s henhouse as it is still possible to see stone alcoves at chest height in the walls so as to protect the clutch from predators. It has been converted into a pool machine room. It is followed by a storage area for the summer equipment.
The view from the inner courtyard towards an alleyway features a tall stone urn which creates an Italian air.
The highly calcareous soil ideally suits a magnificent wisteria that covers an entire corner of the house. Three tall cedar trees shade the meadow. The view from this side extends over gently rolling hills, fields and woods.
The view extends over the gently undulating fields and woods to the distant hills. Two robust square towers wear their roofs like tall hats. One is higher than the other, thus breaking the monotony. Horizontal lines are to be found in the central building and the wing, the latter featuring a portico, formed by the projecting roof, where warm summer evenings can be spent discussing the day’s activities, in a region abounding in heritage sites. The inside exudes an air of an old family home, extending its welcome to newcomers.
