Full description:

This beautifully presented and spacious village house has just had its price reduced. The 300 year old, stone built, detached house has 5 double bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. It has been completely renovated by the current owners. The property has a new roof, electrics, plumbing ( including sanitary ware), and new oak floorboards from a local sawmill. It is in the original, old part of Cazals and is a short walk from the town's shops and services.

In addition to the main reception rooms the house also has a large workshop and cave. Heating is by a Jotul wood burning stove and electric heaters. The 60cm thick stone walls keep you warm in winter and cool in summer. The interior has a unique layout as the land rises so that the rear garden is actually level with the first floor and is overlooked by a large Garden Room. Access to the terrace and garden is via the back door on the first floor, via the French Windows from the Garden Room, or the stone steps leading up directly from the courtyard. The house has plenty of room, inside and out, to pursue all of your family's different interests, together with a choice of attractive areas for dining or relaxing. The property also benefits from mains drainage.


The green, rolling countryside of the Bouriane area of the Lot provides a perfect setting for Cazals, an attractive bastide village. Located between the Lot and Dordogne rivers, it is perfect for pleasant day trips. The house is situated in the original old town, in a very convenient position less than 4 minutes walk to the main square. This square is the hub of all local commerce including shops, bars, restaurants, hairdressers, bank, post office, junior school, library and medical centre. There is also a market every Sunday in the square, popular with local residents and tourists alike.
