    Key features

    • RARE ET UNIQUE, PLEIN DE CARACTÈRE ET DE CHARME
    • L'ENDROIT IDÉAL POUR SE REPOSER

    EXCLUSIVE TO BEAUX VILLAGES! Here is a unique opportunity to acquire a fairy tale property in the heart of the Dordogne. Set in a small park with truffles beneath the trees, wild orchids and butterflies galore, this ancient tower, with its enigmatic carvings, has been lovingly restored by artist craftsmen, and the spacious grounds leave you in perfect privacy. A generous 10 x 5 swimming pool with large underground pool house completes this paradise.

    Although tiny, the property has everything you need for a perfect holiday home or even a winter retreat. Only 30 minutes from Bergerac airport, and situated halfway between the spectacular markets of Périgueux and Bergerac, there are also the small market towns of Vergt and Villamblard nearby, so there is no shortage of renowned Périgourdine cuisine, wines and, in winter, truffle and duck markets.

    The tower is just as interesting in winter as in summer, and the current owners have written several books in this inspirational place. The ground floor has a kitchen and dining area and an ancient fireplace with a wood-burning stove. The beautiful staircase leads you to a bathroom clad in creamy marble with bath, shower and a toilet behind the only door in the building. Climb up further to the bedroom with three latticed windows overlooking views of the countryside and more beautiful handmade furniture. The last flight takes you to a snug attic room where you can read, write or watch films. It could also serve as a child’s bedroom. Outside is the terrace and a garden shed to store garden furniture.

    A tiny castle awaits your viewing.
