About the property

Farmhouse in Cancon, Villeneuve sur Lot, Aquitaine / Dordogne, France - Situated In A Very Peaceful Location But Only 5 Minutes From The Nearest Village

This beautifully restored farmhouse is light and airy and occupies an enviable position in the heart of the Lot countryside. It is approached down a long drive, over a stream and flanked by weeping willow trees. A new salt water swimming pool with roman steps and decking overlooks the 10 acres of parkland and woodland. Behind the property is an orchard of fruits and nuts which you are welcome to sample. There is a small fishing lake to sit by and enjoy watching the native butterflies and dragonflies and watch the green frogs and crayfish. There is a raised terrace to the front of the property for BBQ and dining. There is also a large warm conservatory.

Each village has its own church and mayor's office and there is a feeling of calm wherever you go. Yours to enjoy.
