Full description:

Here you really can have the best of both Worlds - the convenience of living in a town, with bars, restaurants, shops, doctors and schools on your doorstep, yet the grandeur and space, both internally and externally of a country residence.

The property has undergone a stylish renovation throughout and now offers large, light living spaces - ideal for family living. There is room to further enhance this property by replacing and extending the kitchen and by extending the first floor, if required.

The Bastide of Duras is a charming and sought-after location, steeped in history and oozing charm from every stone. It is perched on a hilltop with superb views over the surrounding countryside. The landscape is dominated by the majestic chateau, from where you can stand and soak in the fabulous views across acres and acres of the Cotes de Duras vineyards. A wine lover's paradise! This property has all amenities you could ever need on your doorstep, within easy reach on foot, even a supermarket. A weekly, year-round market and wonderful Summer gastronomic night market ensure the town continues to thrive. In addition, there is an active expat community, organising regular social events and activities.
An ideal way of meeting people and making new friends.

The combination of the above factors is highly unusual in rural France and properties of this standard, in this convenient a location are rarely-available. Early viewing is highly recommended.

ACCOMMODATION

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.
