SKU: TM-FR-46700-24 Category:

An amazing view and complete privacy; that’s what this charming vacation home offers. Located 10 km from the city of Fumel, with a view of the Lot river valley, and situated right next to the forest. An amazing location! Just to give you an idea of the privacy and peace you will experience: a long unmarked gravel road through the forest will get you to the house. The closest town is the attractive community of Mauroux (4 km), which can be reached by either foot or bike (or car) via a beautiful local road. There, one finds a grocery store which also sells bread, a pleasant restaurant, a tennis court and a tourist information office. The area is known for its impressive and varied cultural and historical heritage. The enormous castle of Bonaguil (18 km) is a fine example of late-medieval military architecture, which can be combined, in a day trip, with a visit to the castle in Sauveterre-la-Lémance (26 km) and the impressive donjon of Gavaudun (22 km), which offers a panoramic view of the area. Another attraction is formed by the large number of so-called bastide-communities (fortified villages or towns), such as Tournon-d’Agenais (10 km), Penne-d’Agenais (26 km) and many others, less well known but equally spectacular. Puy-l’Evêque (16 km), another town with a stunning view of the region, offers boat rental (for on the Lot river) and Montayral (5 km) offers a number of very large and exceptionally well-stocked supermarkets, with local and international food items. Many towns in the neighborhood organize weekly farmers markets offering fresh produce, directly sourced from local farms. Cozy, rural vacation home, with a beautifully situated private pool (10 x 5 m, depth 1.10 – 2,5 m, with automated safety cover). Relaxing on one of the deck chairs on the sun deck you can enjoy the gorgeous view of the valley in front of you. You can hide from the sun on the fully covered outdoor terrace which is attached to the main house, which also boasts an authentic brick barbecue. In between main house and swimming pool there is a multi-purpose grass lawn (a table tennis table is provided), and the wild garden gradually transitions into unspoiled nature. Indoors, the furnishings are simple but tasteful, French-rural style and full of character, with impressive natural brick walls. The living room boasts a high wooden ceiling, a tile floor, a large antique cabinet for kitchenware, a woodburning stove with two cozy chairs, a large wooden dinner table and garden doors opening directly onto the fields below the house. The house has a simple open kitchen with a gas stove, dish washer and oven. Upstairs, one finds a mezzanine which functions as the bedroom of the house, with a large two-person bed (1.60m x 2m). The bathroom with hot shower and toilet, as well as laundry machine, is located directly next to the main house, and can be reached via the roofed terrace. Close to the swimming pool, at some 30 meters of the main house, a modern studio (50 m²) has recently been constructed, which can accommodate two further persons. If desired, this studio can be rented together with the main house (not separately to third parties, so your privacy is guaranteed.) This would bring the maximum number of guests to four (plus one baby, if applicable). The studio has a living room, an open kitchen with refrigerator, induction stove and microwave. The bedroom holds two single beds (2 times 0,80m x 2m), which can be pushed together to form a double bed. The studio has its own bathroom with shower and toilet. To make a reservation for the combined use of main house and studio (for a maximum of 4 guests), please use reference number FR-46700-27
