Introducing a charming and irresistibly priced historic country house in SW France that has been painstakingly yet sympathetically restored to create a wonderful home! The main residence includes 5 en-suite bedrooms. Across a substantial cloistered courtyard (it was once a presbytery and chapel), stands a fine old stone chapel that is currently used for summer entertaining and overflow accommodation when not in use as a cool extension to the sheltered, large swimming pool!

The 3 acre park-like gardens boast a small lake by a willow tree with shade and ‘intrigue’ for visitors young and old. Garaging for up to 5 cars is accessed off the second of the two drives.

The surrounding area is a delight with the two chateaux of historic Bruniquel perched high above the River Aveyron as it enters its majestic limestone gorge. Village markets abound, yet there are excellent, nearby high-speed road, rail and international air connections that, with good shopping, are all conveniently located.


ABOUT THE AREA

Mediaeval Bruniquel is classified as one of France's "Most beautiful villages" . It is also the place where, buried underneath the village, the earliest evidence of Neandethal man was found. There is proof that he lived here 176,500 years ago. The region boasts stunning, peaceful country roads through forests and vineyards, all perfect for ramblers and riders, whilst the exciting Aveyron Gorge attracts climbers and kayakers. It is this wealth of wildlife and picturesque village views that inspires generations of artists.

Most local villages have good weekly markets (on different days!). Ten minutes distant is an excellent Boulangerie and larger supermarket whilst some 15 minutes away are a range of excellent supermarkets and most other required services. The town of Montauban is 25 minutes distant with access to high speed rail and the autoroute as well as a wide range of shopping options to satisfy most needs. The cities of Albi and Toulouse are both great cultural centres with Toulouse famous for Airbus, aerospace, medical and scientific research all helping to spawn a University population of 120,000 (10 per cent of which come from overseas!).
