Part of Gascony, its history, its gastronomy and its climate makes this character village a wonderful place to live, amidst a network of towns, villages and fortified "bastides", chateaux, estates and valleys, the beauty of which is never-ending. This property stands on an enclosed, wooded and landscaped plot, with large terraces, on the corner of three narrow village streets. Only one other house adjoins the outbuilding section via a high, blind, stone wall. Amidst the professional areas, the outbuildings and the main building is a patio. The mansion house is therefore independent and has several entrances on each side of the plot. In the southern corner of the garden stands a dovecote, spanning two levels.
