Delightful village house set in the historic Bastide (medieval fortified) village of Penne d’Agenais, giving spectacular views over the countryside on one aspect and the impressive silver dome of the Bascillica of Notre Dame of Peyragude on the other (must see)….
…It is situated just outside the village walls guarding the medieval centre with its narrow streets and lovely stone buildings, a delight to explore. Several restaurants are within walking distance of the house and a whole range of shops, including a supermarket are to be found down at Port au Penne on the River Lot, a five to ten minute walk away. The helpful tourist office has a wealth of information on sights and activities in the village and surrounding area. It is an idyllic area for walking, fishing and horse riding whereas at Port au Penne boats may be hired.
Built in 2000 on the site of an ancient ruin, the house is surprisingly large inside and is ideal for 4–6 people. Maison Recluse is constructed on two levels with the main living area accessed at street level.
