Country Chateau, Eymet Area, Dordogne, France
Located within walking distance of the highly desirable bastide town of Eymet, this chateau has recently been renovated to a very high standard to offer extremely flexible accommodation.
The chateau itself is more formal in nature - light and airy in feel, with cornicing etc. throughout, and has a flexible and self-contained apartment on the ground floor. Whilst very comfortable with its underfloor heating, the Coach House is more rustic - oak beams, part-stone walls etc. The adjoining barn has been converted to a large office but works equally as a studio apartment. All bedrooms are en suite. It is as charming outside as it is in with ten terraces offering a host of sun and shade options and views, and a 12x6 m heated saltwater swimming pool that has an infinity side overlooking the spring-fed lake and woods. The land of some 7ha comprises well-manicured lawns, mature flower beds, woods and pasture.
Discreetly tucked away to offer complete privacy and tranquillity, it is never-the-less less than 3kms into the centre of a charming medieval town with no less than 20 bars and restaurants.
