Lifernet, A secluded18th century farmhouse set in 38 acres with a private pool



Updated: 18-Nov-2016
A beautiful, 18th Century farmhouse set in 38 acres with a private pool

Set in an elevated position up a long private driveway, Lifernet has stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Sleeping 10 people comfortably, the house is beautifully decorated with modern comforts, yet maintains its original character with some original features including oak beams, wooden floors and original stonework and traditional fireplaces throughout. The large light kitchen is fully equipped with a Nespresso Machine and boasts a huge family, oak table to seat 10. The imposing dining room with double height ceilings features a large round dining table that seats up to 12. There is a very large lounge with three, huge leather couches, an open fireplace, and Television, DVD player, and Wii. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and one twin room. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a claw foot tub and shower. A second family bathroom with stand alone shower and bath is located on this floor. There is a further double bedroom located downstairs and a guest toilet.

The garden and pool area have several different relaxing/chilling areas with four shaded seating/eating areas including a very large wooden gazebo next to the pool for Al Fresco dining and a comfortable seating area with a gas barbecue, wicker furniture and a hammock. There are three further terraces to choose from to sit and enjoy the sunset or have a shaded early morning breakfast in the walled courtyard that oozes character.

There is a badminton court, treehouse, cabin in the woods, games room with table tennis and a selection of games. The woods behind the house are a great place to explore, go on long walks or for the brave, a spot of MTB! There is a plum orchard and a huge selection of fruit and nut trees in the gardens.

From the Owner

We fell in love with the beautiful stone house and all its traditional features. We also love the fact that the house is so secluded and offers us peace, tranquility and privacy. We were looking for a property that we could spend quality time in with our family, extended family and friends. Lifernet is the perfect place to do this.

Penne D'agenais, described as one of the most beautiful villages in France has several delightful restaurants in a glorious setting. One must try Maison Sur La Place and Bombecul both having Al Fresco dining. Pujols is a delightful village which hosts an amazing night market on a Wednesday evening, one could also try Beauville night market on a Friday evening. Villeneuve Sur Lot is a very interesting town to explore with lots of lovely shops and restaurants, it has a day market on a Saturday morning in the square. Puymirol Bastide is a bit further a field but well worth a visit for those gourmet aficionados as it has a two Michelin Star restaurant, Auberge (chef - Michel Trama).

In Frespech itself, there is the Musee du Foie Gras which is well worth a visit and every Friday throughout the summer they host a picnic style lunch in the grounds selling the local delicacies, such as grilled duck, local wines, cheeses, snails and of course Foie Gras! There is also a restaurant in Frespech village which is a duck lovers heaven which is owned by the Musee Du Foie Gras.

The surrounding countryside is beautiful for walks, running and is an absolute dream for those cyclists among you with a penchant for lycra..... both mountain bikers and road bikers give the area a massive thumbs up! There are several Moto Cross tracks which are suitable for motorbiking and MTB.

There are a number of lakes in the surrounding areas where one can do canoeing, swimming and watersports. Frespech has a local lake and there are also two stables for horse riding within ten minutes of Lifernet.

Agen is the capital of the Lot et Garonne and is an interesting place to visit with lots of big shops and lovely restaurants, such as Galeries Lafayette, Maison du Monde and Sephora etc. Close to Agen for the younger guests, there is an amusement park, called Parc Walibi.

Food shopping is a breeze with the best supermarket being on the outskirts of Villeneuve Sur Lot -E. LeClerc (approx 18 km away). Closer but not as big are the Intermarche Super (12 Km) at Saint Sylvestre Sur Lot or Carrefour at Laroque Timbaut (9 Km).
