Location

The property is situated in open countryside close to Monbalen and Laroque Timbaut between Agen to the South (20 minutes) and Villenueve-sur-Lot to the North (15 minutes).

Local amenities including restaurants, supermarket and bakery in Laroque Timbault.

All major supermarkets and shops in Villeneuve and Agen.

On the hill above Saint-Sylvestre (15 minutes), is the ancient bastide village of Penne d'Agenais, topped by a basilica with a shining metal dome that can be seen for miles around. The old village is a warren of little streets and lovely old stone houses that wind up the hill to the basilica and lovely views across the countryside. Just on the market square is a general grocery store and there are various artisan workshops and several reasonably priced restaurants.

Monflanquin (30 minutes) is an old bastide town with winding streets and fabulous views. All amenities in the village including large supermarket, cafés, restaurants, bakeries (and an English food shop! Great for bacon, sausages etc…).

Traditional street market every Thursday morning.

The Dordogne area of France is one of the most beautiful and one of the most popular. Lovely countryside interspersed with medieval, bastide towns and fairytale châteaux rise from the morning mist.

It's a great region for food lovers; all the Perigordian specialities such as Foie Gras, confit d'oie and canard, mushrooms of all types are in abundance.

Many antique markets throughout the year. All info at the tourist information office.

Don't miss a trip to La Roque-Gageac, a stunningly beautiful village under the towering cliffs. The village regularly wins France's 'Prettiest Village' competition. Good canoeing centre here.
