About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Karen Healy

We have lived and worked in London for many years in the financial sector. Some time ago we decided that we would like to enjoy a slower pace of life, so we had the idea of running our own gite complex in France. After a long search we found this beautiful property and we are now living here at Domaine Les Pruniers and we couldn't be happier!

Year property purchased 2015
Why this location? We have visited SW France many times over the years, initially the Dordogne area and the Atlantic coast. A few years ago we discovered the Lot et Garonne and fell in love with its tranquility and sublime natural beauty and also for its wide variety of lively bastide towns and villages, markets, chateaux and vineyards. We decided that we would like to live here and when we found this property our dream came true. For keen golfers there is an attractive 9 hole par 38 course in Tombeboeuf which is only 7km from us, with club and buggy hire available. There is also a highly recommended 18 hole golf course at Villeneuve-sur-Lot, which is about 25km away.There are many gentle walks and hikes within easy reach and there are also many cycle paths, we are close to both the Route Vert and the Velo Route. Les Pruniers is very close to the Lot river and it is a just a short drive to the many towns dotted along the banks offering water activities such as kayaking and canoeing.
Unique benefits of property Set within its own plum orchards and stunning gardens, Domaine Les Pruniers is a 4 hectare estate dating back to 1890. Located in the beautiful Lot et Garonne, close to the South Dordogne border and only 40 minutes drive from Bergerac airport, Domaine Les Pruniers is the perfect base to explore both areas. The estate comprises three properties Mirabelle, Myrtille and Mure which have all been rated as 4 star accommodation by the French tourist board. All the properties are available to rent individually however you can also enjoy exclusive use of the estate with its large heated pool, hot-tub, petanque court, various games areas and acres of space by renting all three properties together with your friends or family. You can then enjoy having your own space whilst getting together for meals or drinks around the pool whenever you wish. Les Pruniers is within easy reach of many bastide towns and villages including Villeneuve sur Lot, Bergerac, Monpazier, Agen, Monflanquin, Duras and Eymet.
