On the outskirts of the Serre region, a gently undulating area set between the rivers Lot and Garonne. The little road, leading to the house, follows the course of a stream bordered by mills. In days gone by, monks drained the bottom of this valley. Agen TGV train station is but 15 minutes away by car and its airport 20 minutes away. The nearby village has all daily requirements.
The main house
Old stone steps lead to a terrace which runs alongside the south facade. Paved with terracotta, it is bordered by a low stone wall as well as delicate, refined flowering plants such as fuchsia, acanthus, hellebore. The verdant proliferation that reigns throughout the garden surrounding the property gives it a somewhat magical aspect. An old round well stands in the terrace’s south-west corner. A metal structure supports a climbing rose which diffuses its welcome shade throughout the summer months.
A few stone steps go unevenly down from the terrace to a stone barn, with a Roman tile roof, concealed by a mass of climbing roses. The section nearest to the house comprises two garages opening on either side. Despite its concrete floor, a third of the building still exudes its former character with its hay mangers. The vast remaining area has terracotta paving and a cathedral ceiling, panelled with wide planks of bare wood. A summer kitchen has been set up there under picture windows which let in copious amounts of light. The end of the barn is raised with a vast stage where piano recitals have been held. On the right-hand side of the stage is a room housing a shower and a wash-hand basin. The impressive barn door opening into the garages has been preserved. A door at the end opens on to a paved terrace overlooking the swimming pool which, with its verdant surroundings, forms a little isolated and protected haven of peace.
The guest house or holiday rental accommodation unit
A wooden walkway leads from the swimming pool terrace to this little exposed stone house. Plain and comfortable, it is fitted with reversible air-conditioning just like the main house.
The charm of the place begins as of the driveway as numerous customers, won over by the bed & breakfast activity, can testify, with visitors falling under its spell as soon as they cross the threshold. A future inauguration is to be held, in the neighbouring village, for an auditorium where “Masters Classes”, of which there are only four in France, are to be organised. It could also become a theatre for concerts and other shows. The hotel and catering activity conducted from this property could be developed. However, there is nothing to prevent a family comprising several generations from getting together here. The elders could even choose to live here all year round as Agen and its infrastructures are but a stone’s throw away.
