This grand 17th-century stone house has a large garden with a swimming pool that’s overlooked by the local church – when the stained-glass windows are lit at night it’s very beautiful.
The house is perfect for one or two families, with rooms in the main house or garden annexe. Watch TV or read in the cosy sitting room, rustle up dinners in the modern galley kitchen and eat together around a long table in the dining room. The garden has lots of hidden corners, plus a shaded gazebo and a summer kitchen for barbecues.
This is a quiet part of France, with simple pleasures: stroll to the small village shop, bakery, restaurant and pizzeria in minutes, take a guided tour of the ancient cellars of Le Château de Monluc, which produces both wine and Armagnac. Toulouse and Bordeaux are around two hours’ drive away.
