|Property type||chateau / country house|
Clovis is a beautiful stone manor house with a large secluded private pool - 12m x 6m - set in a terraced area with a large pool house offering shade throughout the day. There are ample sun loungers and chairs with cushions. Situated in the rolling countryside of the Lot & Garonne, bordering the Dordogne and Gironde, a beautiful location in the wine region of the South West, the house has wonderful views. The house offers luxurious accommodation and is furnished to a high standard offering every comfort. We are 20 minutes south of the historic town of Bergerac and its Airport, with daily flights from several UK destinations, and a 12 minute drive from the pituresque bastide town of Eymet. We are a 10 minutes from Chateau Vigiers - the beautiful 27 hole championship golf course. We have Sky Satellite television, with Sky Sports for the enthusiast. The house has every comfort, just relax and enjoy yourselves.
Our house in France is our second home and feels like a home and not a holiday let, which can sometimes feel sparse and unwelcoming. We have provided every comfort you could wish for. Although the house is grand, it is warm and welcoming with bright sunny large rooms and is a great space to enjoy friends and family.
Florence Bovis purchased this chateau / country house in 2006
We have always loved this area and holidayed here for many years before we bought out first house in 1998.
The countryside is beautiful, not dramatic but every twist in the road provides a new and stunning view of vineyards, orchards and chateaux. The food is amazing and the restaurants are plentiful and varied and often extremely good value.
The climate is great, often it is very hot in the summer, but not humid. The spring and autumn can be mild and the winters, though cold can be crisp and clear. The countryside is green and lush, not in any way arid.
Although the area is a popular holiday destination, it never becomes overcrowded and retains its rural feel.
