Steeped in history and brimming over with character, this atmospheric house, formerly a small castle and then a royal hunting lodge, has been renovated and includes an enormous reception room, a very large kitchen/diner, 2 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and plenty of space for more. The grounds measure 1.5 acres.
This property represents a notable slice of French history. Its origins were in the 13th Century when it served as a fortified house or perhaps even a castle. By the 16th Century it had been transformed into a hunting lodge and was used by Jeanne d`Albret, the mother of Henri IV.
The building has been restored recently and is now a manageable-sized property with an immense, light and airy reception room and an equally impressive kitchen/diner, both with spectacular, high ceilings. There is a turret attached to the house which offers many possibilities. There are a number of other possibilities within the property to create further habitable space.
The property has 1.5 acres of land with far-reaching views, a double garage and a well. The garden is largely lawn and there are a good number of trees as well. The nearest airport is at Bergerac, just over a half hour drive.
