Full description:

Nestled in an acre of mature, landscaped gardens with magnificent sweeping views over the famous Monbazillac vineyards and Dordogne forests beyond, yet only 10 minutes' drive from the beautiful medieval town of Bergerac, this wonderful villa's location is absolutely first-rate.

The setting is truly enchanting and the overriding feeling is one of an exclusive residential area, a closely-guarded and well-kept secret! There are a handful of neighbours along the little lane, but this property's generous plot is fully enclosed by hedges and fencing on all sides, ensuring complete privacy and tranquillity. Ideal for pets or children to run free. The professionally laid-out garden is full of exotic trees and shrubs designed to give continuous colour throughout the seasons and is a haven for wildlife. Beautiful birds and bird song are ever-present.

Yet it is only a 10 minute drive to the bustling, riverside town of Bergerac with its fantastic markets, diverse commerce, excellent schools, hospital and only 5 minutes' drive to its international airport with daily flights to the UK, Holland, Belgium and Paris. This property really does benefit from the best of both Worlds.
It is perfect either as a permanent residence or holiday home or indeed an income-generating holiday-let. It will be let for the entire 2017 Summer season and will be sold fully-furnished with invaluable, reliable contacts provided for caretakers, gardeners and managing agents so you could really hit the ground running if you were looking to generate some additional income and use it for Holiday Lets.

The villa itself dates from the early 1980's but has been considerably modernised over the years. The light and spacious accommodation is conveniently laid out all on one-level, with a large basement underneath housing a large garage as well as additional living space. There is the most fabulous terrace and conservatory to the rear ensuring that those magnificent views over the vine-covered valley can be enjoyed all year long. To the front of the property, there is covered terrace offering much-needed shade in the summer months to enjoy al fresco dining, overlooking the beautiful grounds and across to the pool. The pool itself is covered and heated which considerably extends the season for usage and at 14 metres long and 5 metres wide, there is certainly plenty of room for everyone to be in it at once! There is also a pool house with fitted kitchen, pump house and a large wooden workshop in the grounds.
In summary, words and photos alone cannot do this property justice- viewing is ESSENTIAL.
Don't delay - This property's PRICE HAS BEEN SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCED due to personal circumstance - properties in this location do not come on the market very often and as such are highly sought-after.

About Guyenne Immobilier Sarl, Eymet

Welcome to Guyenne Immobilier. We are a well established Estate Agency, selling and renting property in Miramont de Guyenne in the Lot et Garonne department and the surrounding area for over 18 years. In recent years the area that we encompass has grown and we now include a selection of properties in the Dordogne, Gironde and often further afield.
Second Office in EYMET...With an exceptionally busy office in Miramont we were in need of more room and with a large proportion of our sales and rental business taking place in and around Eymet in early spring 2010 we opened our second office in the stunning Bastide market town of Eymet and we have never looked back. Our team have a wealth of experience and knowledge of this area, property and living in France.
We offer an excellent and, most importantly, knowledgeable service and we will maintain support through all stages of purchase through to completion and beyond. We have French, Dutch and British staff and a German speaker too. Register with us now and we will guide you all the way. There has never been a better time to buy.
Rental Management/Gestion Locative
A good proportion of the daily business taking place in our Miramont office surrounds our 'Gestion' business or in English 'rental management'. It is probably little known amongst the British that we have the largest portfolio of 'long term rental' properties in the area and most of those are French owned.
Now with over 100 properties on our books with full time occupancy, it keeps us on our toes. We have a constant demand which outstrips supply.
The buy to let market is huge and investing in this sector could well could reap you a 7 - 8% gross return when rented, much more attractive than a bank! Have you thought of 'buying to let' investments? Purchase through Guyenne Immobilier and we can offer you a complete 'in-house' service, unique to this area.
