A beautiful estate with two houses, swimming pool, private driveway and 8.6 acres of land. An ideal equestrian and/or income generating property, it is situated in a beautiful valley, with stunning views, yet less than 4km from the medieval town of Duras.

This lovely country home sits in a commanding position above a beautiful valley with lovely views. It is a very peaceful spot. However, as there is plenty of space, large living spaces, lots of bedrooms, a wonderful terrace for dining alfresco and large garden, ideal for entertaining and holidays with family and friends, when it might be anything but peaceful!

In the main house is a converted barn with stunning full height cathedral ceiling and traditional exposed beams. There are also beautiful travertine tiles.  The accommodation is extremely spacious and if you require ground floor bedrooms and bathrooms, this house can provide those facilities.  Here’s the layout:

The garden is very well maintained and has a wonderful selection of mature trees and plants.  In the summer, it is a riot of flowers.  Just down the slope from the house is the swimming pool with a surrounding terrace and under cover dining area.  A small stream runs along the bottom of the garden - perfect for watering the garden!

Surrounding the garden, the fields are ideal for ponies.

Every now and then, you may have to prise yourself away from the tranquil valley for supplies and  it’s just a 4km trip into the centre of Duras.  Duras is a lovely medieval town, popular with visitors, but plenty of resources for the locals too.  Complete with fabulous chateau and authentic weekly farmers market in the town square, it may not be a particularly large town but there is an excellent selection of restaurants, cafes and shops as well as all the useful amenities you will need.

If you are a keen walker, there are lots of lovely country-side walks on the randonées and vineyard paths.  There is also a choice of golf courses and plenty of opportunity for a spot of fresh water swimming and perhaps fishing in the lakes.  This is also a good area for cycling.
