Perfect for wine lovers (or not!) who want spacious, elegant living in France’s most revered regions for wine! And for smart investors who wish to generate ongoing revenue from a highly rentable property!

This beautiful, spacious home was built in 1830 by a wealthy merchant from Bordeaux as a hunting lodge and renovated to perfection in the early 2000s. Currently, the property sits on two hectares of gardens and open fields and includes a private island in the Isle River inhabited by swans and the like!

Beautiful, spacious 1830's former hunting lodge

The decorative iron entrance gate opens onto a tree-lined lane that leads to the main residence and a front garden, in complete privacy and set well back from the road. The main residence is a beautifully maintained stone house consisting of two levels of habitation, luxurious fittings in the kitchen and all bathrooms, original parquet and stone floors, and a wine cellar in the basement—a perfect spot for wine tastings! The former stables, attached to the main house, have been converted into two guest suites, an atelier, and a garage/barn (potential for future renovation/habitation).

There is a large swimming pool surrounded by terracing and a beautiful shade structure within the gardens as well as a stone terrace overlooking the fields and river at the rear. At ground floor level are two large reception areas, an open concept kitchen, a primary bedroom with ensuite bathroom, a large office, guest toilet, and laundry room. On the upper level are four additional bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and an additional shared bathroom and laundry. The house includes an impressive wine cellar that would easily accommodate wine tastings.

Three of the bedroom suites are on the main level; two of them can be independent from the main house (one with a kitchenette) and separate entrance. The house has the potential to be a successful revenue-generating “gite,” “chambre d’hôte,” (bed and breakfast), guest house or event or conference center. At present, it can accommodate 14 people, with beautiful large open spaces and high ceilings.

The lodge is ideally located between Bordeaux in the Gironde and Périgueux in the Dordogne, but only two kilometers from the border of the Gironde. It is only 20 minutes from the most revered wine appellation in the Bordeaux region, Saint Emilion, which also happens to be a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is also less than an hour to some of the most charming villages in the Dordogne countryside. Brantôme-en-Périgord is just an hour away, known as the “Venise de Périgord” and home to an extraordinary Abbey founded in 769 by Charlemagne. The department of the Dordogne is home to some of the oldest truffle farms in France and is a culinary delight with local markets keeping the ancient Roman villages alive and thriving. Arriving to the lodge is easy via the TGV from Paris to Libourne and from nearby Montpon-Ménestérol to Bordeaux.
