Accommodation: This very beautiful manor house has been renovated in keeping with the property's character and charm. The owners, who have enjoyed over 20 years at the property, undertook a sensitive and tasteful restoration of the property, retaining hexagonal clay floor tiles, fireplaces, beautiful windows, panelling and corner cupboards and the original ceiling beams and joists.
The ground floor is centred around a large reception hall which runs from the front to the back of the building and from which you access the principal rooms, three bedroom suites and the gardens. Off the large and well fitted kitchen is a back hallway with access to cloakroom and storage, the laundry and television room plus a further bedroom suite. This could easily become a staff apartment.
Two sets of stairs - one formal and the other originally for staff - lead to the first floor and a large landing which opens to two further bedroom suites, two bedrooms and a bathroom.

About the area: The house is situated between Monsegur, a very popular bastide town on the eastern edge of the Gironde department, and La Reole, one of France's oldest and most historic towns. La Reole was, in the middle ages, the second most important town in the area known as Guyenne, with Bordeaux being the first. In both towns there is a very good selection of shops, services, cinemas, sports facilities and weekly markets. La Reole has a railway station with connections to Bordeaux and Toulouse and autoroute links are close by. Airports are available at Bordeaux, Toulouse and Bergerac.
The surrounding countryside is a mixture of farmland, vineyards and deciduous woodland with the Garonne river and Canal Lateral (which one can follow by boat or bicycle to the Mediterranean)a short distance away.
Further afield the coast can be accessed in under 2 hours and slightly further away are the Pyrenees.
