About the property

Old riverside farmhouse with 2 bedrooms ensuite and one separate bathroom

Arnotis is a beautifully restored 18th century stone farmhouse, set in 10 acres of private parkland, approached by a long tree lined drive. Privately situated on the river bank, it has sublime views of the river. A paradise for those who like fishing there is a jetty and another quiet, undisturbed spot further along the bank. Our nearest village is Fongrave 2 kms away where you can buy essential things including bread in the local bar. In July and August the village has a Thursday evening market where you can buy food and eat with the locals at long tables set under shady trees. Sainte Livrade (3 kms) has a choice of shops and a huge market every Friday morning that takes over the centre of the village, where you find everything from piles of fruit and vegetables, flowers and plants, fresh herbs and cheeses, country breads and home made fruit tarts, local foie gras and wine, to stalls with clothes and kitchen utensils, fabrics and tools, in the streets around the market square.

The house has four double bedrooms, two with ensuite bathrooms and two sharing a bathroom with shower and separate wc, all individually decorated and furnished. The main bedroom has doors opening directly onto the terrace, and lovely views across the river. There are ten acres to wander around in, orchards with apples, plums, pears, peaches and cherries (please help yourself to as much as you can!)

There is a large L-shaped swimming pool with a diving board, which is totally private and secluded. The pool terrace has sunbeds, tables and chairs and there is also a barbecue. There is a small boat moored at the jetty, which can be used to fish or to make a little trip and to cross the river to the tennis courts on the opposite side. We also have a kayak available. The kitchen leads onto a covered terrace with more seating for eight with beautiful views of the river!

Nearest Golf
20 Kilometres
Tombeboeuf, Castelnaud
Nearest Restaurant
5 Kilometres
Ste Livrade sur Lot

There are two or three golf courses within an easy drive. Castelnaud has a championship 18-hole course with a driving range, putting green and Pro shop. Combeboeuf has a 9-hole course with a practice area and Pro shop. Both courses have golf clubs, trolleys and buggies available for hire.

Ramblers have an endless choice of well mapped routes and local trails that go up into the hills, through villages and countryside that can take anything from an hour to a day. The shorter trails are ideal for families. Riding is another marvellous way to explore the area and there are three riding stables who will cater for every level and provide accompanied treks. Cycling routes, ideal for mountain biking, often follow the pedestrian or bridle paths. Pack a picnic lunch and take the 80 km route through the river valley, along quiet country roads via ancient bastides and picturesque villages, tucked away off the beaten track. There are push/ mountain bikes .
