|Year property purchased||2008|
|Why this location?||We built the house here because we couldn't find a more beautiful view.|
|Unique benefits of property||Being relatively new it benefits from air conditioning, under floor heating, a great kitchen and lots of bathrooms - so ideal as a holiday home. But it's also in a wonderful location which means it is quiet and peaceful and we've designed the house, terraces and private pool to make the most of stunning views and fabulous sunsets.|
The old village of Vanxains, with its boulangerie and post office nestles in the valley below and is only a short drive away - you can also cycle or walk to it. Riberac, a bustling town is five miles away. It has all kinds of shops, hypermarkets, restaurants and other facilities such as canoeing and horse riding. The famous Friday market at Riberac is a must for visitors and is as much a social occasion as a shopping opportunity. Aubeterre, a very old and very beautiful village is only 15 minutes drive away - the nearest golf course is also located near here. There are lots of other lovely places to explore. Brantome, Bergerac, Perigueux and St Emilion are all less than an hour's drive and are brilliant for sightseeing (and wine tasting!). For familes Lac Jemaye with its lakeside setting, great man-made beach, kayaks and beach bars is very popular.
Stunning property in an idyllic part of France
Property well thought out and very well equipped.
