Espere in Lot-et-Garonne, a cottage in Dordogne and Lot: Espere exterior

Lovely restored Farmhouse and pool with stunning views in secluded setting.

Espere is a traditional ‘longueur’ built farmhouse over 200 years old and was probably the dowager house to the adjoining fruit farm. The property was restored from a ruin in 2001 and has been since brought to a high standard retaining many original features and providing an excellent level of comfort with accommodation for up to two families. Situated close to the medieval towns of Penne D'Agenais, Monflanquin, and Villeneuve Sur Lot, the property lies on the outskirts of the village of St Aubin famous for its annual prune fair. The house is surrounded by beautiful countryside with unparalleled views of prune and cherry orchards and within easy reach of many traditional French country markets, excellent restaurants and historical places of interest. Bergerac airport is an easy 45 mins. Bordeaux and Toulouse airports are 2 hours’ drive. Agen and its TGV stop from Paris (4 hours) is a 45 minutes’ drive. The Channel ports are 9-10 hours driving. There is a large barn and a secluded 1 acre garden.

Description of sleeping capacity:

Bedroom 1- master with en-suite (shower). There are two further double bedrooms one with four single beds and sitting area (ideal for 4 children as a dorm) or for two adults who like to ‘spread’ their things where two of the single beds can be configured as super king size. There is a further sofa bed in the mezzanine sitting room for an older ‘teenager' or single adult. There is a large family bathroom with bath, shower and loo. There is a further w.c. adjoining the inner hall. The master bedroom has a shower, hand basin and loo en-suite. A cot, high chair and some bedding are available for children under two years of age at no extra charge.


The property has not been specially adapted for wheelchairs but doorways, the two downstairs bedrooms and the family bathroom are accessible by a wheelchair.


There is canoeing on the River Lot at Lustrac (3 miles away) where canoes may be hired. There are several companies hiring canoes on the River Dordogne (70 mins drive) for a full day out. There are two livery stables in the village where riding can be arranged.

The farmhouse is frequently used by the owners from October to May but can be available for letting during this timeframe by arrangement.

The garden is unfenced and immediately adjoins farmland. Crops vary from Wheat to Corn and of course Sunflowers which are a principal crop in the region. The pool is 90 cm deep at the shallow end accessed by a ladder with a gradual slope to the deep end (depth of 1.80cm). The pool is fitted with a safety alarm but is not fenced therefore supervision of young children is essential at all times. Pool side furniture and sun beds are provided. The English caretakers of the property live close by and are available for any advice or assistance needed.

Indoor activities: Spacious and comfortable mezzanine sitting room with single sofa bed, TV, Video player, games, DVDs and Books. Wi-Fi.
