character houses for sale lot-et-garonne in france

A family home, surrounded by parklands with a swimming pool,
on the edge of a village in the French department of Lot-et-Garonne

, LOT-ET-GARONNE aquitaine FR


On the borders of the Albret region and the Garonne plains, on the outskirts of a small village occupied by the English during the One Hundred Years War. The market town which dominates the valley still has its own post office, primary school, grocery shop and other amenities that make life easier. There is a motorway slip road 6 km away, the prefecture for the department, its future TGV train station and its airport are less than 30 minutes away and there is a renowned spa resort 15 minutes away.


Backing on to the village, the house is surrounded by superb parklands spanning approx. one hectare with a swimming pool. The residence, set between beautiful old trees and dating from the 18th and early 19th centuries, is totally protected from any neighbouring nuisances courtesy of the surrounding vegetation.
The plain but elegant south-facing façade is covered with fragrant wisteria. A small wing at the back, set at right angles, forms the service quarters. This south-facing, old, large, luxurious house looks out on to its parklands with its back to the village. Only the two private courtyards of the kitchen and the service quarters face the local shops. Next to the church, the local stone boundary wall features superb, wide gates that form the main entrance.

The residence

The main house, spanning a total floor surface area of just under 400 m², comprises a ground and a first floor with a total of ten rooms. It is characterised by its long south-facing facade, built of bricks and rustic but elegant quarry blocks. The central section of the residence is enhanced by a “crown”, an attic floor featuring three small windows that adds to the property’s undeniable charm.

Ground floor
A vast entrance hall opens on to the parklands via double French windows. A slender, wooden spiral stairway leading upstairs is set against the back wall of the vestibule. On the side, just before the first steps, a small hall area leads to a toilet and provides direct access to a large storage room, used as a laundry room. A passageway under the stairway provides access to a first kitchen, adjoining the large kitchen. The reception rooms are on either side of the entrance hall. The large, double lounge with its fireplace and old parquet flooring is full of charm. It is illuminated via three windows, including a French window that opens on to the parklands. On the east side, a large family dining room with a fireplace is extremely luminous.
A doorway in the north wall communicates directly with the vast kitchen, this corner room is particularly bright. It is fully fitted and its contemporary layout includes a central island unit. A small kitchen, with an L-shaped passageway under the main stairway, separates it from the laundry room. This section, with its utility rooms, overlooks the house’s north courtyard and has a specific entrance that opens on to a narrow no-through road. A wood shed, a garage-workshop-boiler room, an attic and a barn also overlook this closed courtyard on the north side. Adjacent to the dining room, a pleasant small lounge full of character, with its small brick and quarry stone walls, features a large fireplace and exposed beams. A bedroom, with a shower room and toilet, completes the ground floor on the east side. A little spiral stairway goes to an upstairs bedroom.

First floor
A vast landing leads west to a small corridor leading to two bedrooms full of charm, each with its own fireplace and its old cupboards. The biggest one has direct access to the shower room with a toilet. A toilet, with a wash-hand basin, is set in a corner of the corridor. To the east, a bedroom with an elegant Louis XVI fireplace, is flanked on each side with panelled cupboards from the same period. It precedes a small corridor providing access to a shower room with a toilet and a child’s bedroom.
All the bedrooms on this floor as well as the bathroom have a superb view over the parklands.

The first floor landing was big enough for the creation of a stairway leading to the second floor. Here, under the perfectly insulated rafters, is a vast bedroom, with a kitchen area and a large cupboard, as well as a bathroom, with a toilet, and a child’s bedroom. This level has reversible air-conditioning throughout.

The outbuildings

Set at right angles opposite the kitchen is a small 60 m² wing, the roof of which has been redone. It comprises one single large room that faces east over a completely independent courtyard. This is closed via gates that provide access to the village. Various machine rooms such as the boiler room and one with the miscellaneous meters are grouped here. The courtyard can be used for parking several cars. A slope leads to the parklands.

Our opinion

This manor house, backing on to the village and looking out over its immaculately kept parklands, exudes charm and elegance. Its last owners have carried out renovation works, encompassing the roofs, and installed all modern-day comforts.
The service quarters could still be transformed into a caretaker’s cottage or into a holiday rental accommodation unit without detriment to the tranquillity of the main house.
New owners can move straight into this property which will immediately lend itself to their every wish, either as a family home or a bed & breakfast activity.
