Fabulous panoramic views

Our house for sale in France has a great location, overlooking the river Lot with an outstanding 180° panoramic view of the valley and countryside beyond. On a clear day the snow-topped Pyrenees can be seen in winter and spring.

Below, you can see orchards of fruit trees, especially plums from which the delicious Agen prunes are derived.

On a balmy summer’s evening, or even as late as December, you can enjoy a peaceful and refreshing drink on the terrace looking out across the valley and know that you are living well!

Peaceful, well-stocked, scenic garden

Privacy is good, with enclosed gardens, and ample screening trees. There is a peaceful rear garden well stocked with flowering shrubs, vines, and fruit trees. At the bottom of the garden is the terrace area to enjoy the expansive 180° views over the Lot valley, and where you can see fabulous sunsets and sunrises.
