About the Owner/Advertiser, Ms Jan Farnell

Andy and myself, have settled in Villeneuve de Duras this year, after travelling France for 6 years in our Motorhome, always returning to this area, so we knew it was right for us. We are both semi retired and loving every minute.

Year property purchased 2017
Why this location? Its a quiet rural location in the heart of wine country, we love to be surrounded by the vines and shops and restaurants are only 10 minutes away.
Unique benefits of property Very quiet and peaceful, but not far from towns and villages with the benefit of lots of restaurants. We are right next door to a vineyard with wine tasting and vineyard tours.
