Your dream house in an idyllic French village
for only 289,000 !
Close your eyes. Imagine living in sunny south-west France, in a beautiful village.
Imagine that this village
commune has only around 450 residents, but (unlike most French
it is thriving; it has a fine grocer / butcher, a boulangerie, a tabac / presse, a café bar,
a Logis hotel with a good and inexpensive restaurant, a pharmacy, a doctor, a dentist, a hairdresser,
a pretty river with riverside walks, an 'ancient monument' church with its 15th century frescoes...
ten / fifteen minutes from three towns, each with markets, restaurants, and supermarkets.
Imagine this village is situated within a few kilometres of the famous wine areas of Bordeaux, Duras and Bergerac...
... an hour or so from two airports with frequent flights to all areas of the UK
... in fertile farmland with low, rolling hills covered in maize, sunflowers and plum trees, famous for Agen prunes.
Imagine that there's a fine house 100 metres from the village centre, yet in a quiet lane,
a master carpenter's house dating from 1695, with original features but modern amenities,
with a private courtyard, a garden, a barn / garage, and a working well.
A house ideal for a family or a retired couple, a permanent residence, as a holiday home or a B&B.
here it is. In Allemans du Dropt.
We've lived hereabouts for
nearly ten years, but now, due to advancing years, it's time for
us to move on
and sell our lovely house to new owners who will be the next 'caretakers' of 321 years of history.
