Occupying a prime spot centred between Bergerac, Toulouse and Bordeaux, and underpinned economically by fruit production and tourism, the Lot et Garonne offers an enviable rural lifestyle whilst never being far from the madding crowds.
Sometimes known as the Tuscany of France, the landscape is populated with sunflowers, vines, cypress trees and red tiled roofs.
The north of the Lot et Garonne includes limestone hills and some pine forest where it joins the Landes. Thereafter it becomes rolling valleys set around the important rivers that give it its name.
Visitor towns include Duras, Nerac, and Monflanquin, with larger towns at Marmande, Villeneuve sur Lot and Agen. The list of pretty hilltop bastides is quite impressive, too.
A unique 14th Century fortified Chateau built by the Dukes of Duras on 2.5 hectares of land with magnificent views out over the Dropt valley.
The property includes the main house with around 400 m2 of living space, a separate two-bedroom guest cottage renovated to a high-standard and several large stone outbuildings - all enclosed by a stone wall creating a large inner courtyard.
Ideally situated at a short drive from the bustling Bastide market towns of Duras, Mons�gur & Eymet, this unique, elegant and exceptional property absolutely must be viewed. A 40 minute drive from Bergerac Airport and 75 minute drive from Bordeaux International Airport.
