Property description

Our house is a three story stone village house. The thick exterior walls probably date from the 13th century, and ensure that the house stays cool in the summer. From the street, you enter a hall which leads to a large living room, and beyond to a fully-equipped kitchen, recently renovated, with a full-sized refridgerator, gas cooktop and electric stove. A large oak table can seat up to ten people. A door from the kitchen leads to a completely private flag-stoned patio. In good weather we enjoy all our meals at the table in the courtyard. It is a lovely place to enjoy a glass of wine, or stretch out on the chaise longue and read.
Off the kitchen is a boiler room and a half bath with toilet and basin.
There are four bedrooms on the second floor and 2 full bathrooms. The two large front bedrooms (one with queen bed, the other with a 3/4 bed) have frenchdoors to small balconies overlooking the street. The back bedrooms (one with double bed, the other with a single bed) look over the courtyard. All the rooms are spacious, with high ceilings, and floors of thick oak planks.
The third floor is a charming space, an artist's studio, with natural light flooding in through roof skylights. It is a lovely place to have a glass of wine by candlelight, to listen to music, or the sounds of the village - street sounds from below, or church bells drifting in.
One advantage of a village house is its proximity to restaurants (there are a number of them in the square or elsewhere in the village), bakeries, and other commerces. But you are never far from the peaceful calm of the countryside. Take the bikes (we have two in the house) or set out on foot and within minutes you will find yourself in the middle of fields of sunflowers, vineyards, or waving corn and wheatfields.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are a retired, active couple who divide our time between our house in France and Vancouver Island.

Why the Owner Chose Eymet:
We fell in love with Eymet and this region when we spent a year in the nearby village of Duras in Lot-et-Garonne. Lured to Eymet by the Thursday morning market we would afterwards sit in one of the cafes on the square, sipping a 'grand creme' and soaking up the atmosphere of village life. We love being in the centre of this lively village and we love the area. We enjoy the food and wine, the beauty of the countryside and the many charming villages. Yet we are close to the busy city of Bordeaux and the Atlantic beaches if we ever long for a shot of city life.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love being in the centre of this lively and friendly village. In the morning, we cross the couryard to buy croissants and carry them home, still warm, to enjoy on our own terrace. The Thursday morning market sets up almost outside our door, and the best wine cave in the area is also on the square. There are a number of very good restaurants within a short stroll of the house, so we can enjoy the excellent wine over dinner without having to think about who will be the designated driver. The pace of life in this rural part of France is slower; stores still close up for at least two hours at lunch time, and once you get used to this, you find you wouldn't have it any other way.
