About the Owner/Advertiser, Mrs Sarah Wigmore

Paul was a secondary school teacher and Sarah worked for a Housing Association. We have two daughters and a grandson all living in Devon. <br/> We have always loved this part of South West France and often visited with our two daughters and dreamed of moving here. Domaine de France is the perfect place to enjoy all SW France has.

Why this location? Penne d'Agenais is one of the most picturesque bastide villages in the region, boasting restaurants and cafes as well as craft businesses, such as pottery and art studios.

The village is home to the impressive Basilica, Notre Dame de Peyragude, which overlooks the village and the River Lot.

Motor boats and canoes/ kayaks are available for hire from Port de Penne and there are plenty of marked popular walks to follow in the countryside around Penne.

Described as the “Tuscany” of France, Lot et Garonne in Aquitaine is a department famous for its countryside with orchards and vineyards, farms, oak forests and quaint medieval ”bastide” villages. Penne overlooks the River Lot, and because of this perfect defensive position, the village in the past was strategically important. The area is rich in sites of historical interest most of which date from the period of French-English rivalry in the 13th Century,
Unique benefits of property Welcome to Domaine de France. The property comprises a restored 'Maison de Maitre,' a converted Quercy stone barn housing the gîtes and outbuildings set in 9 acres on the edge of the medieval village of Penne d'Agenais, Lot Valley, Lot et Garonne.
