Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: I grew up in Portland, OR. I attended U.C. Berkley and chose to live in the International House. It gave me a lifetime love for world travel. My wife grew up in The Netherlands and has lived in several countries around the world. She is an artist who has been a lifelong painter. She settled in Portland, where we met. We enjoy traveling and experiencing cultures the world over.
Why the Owner Chose Riberac:
My wife’s art history professor in university, chose to retire to the town of Aubeterre sur Dronne. We visited him 3 years in a row and loved the unspoiled and “non-touristy” environment and culture. The beautiful setting, architecture, history and quaint lifestyle of the countryside continued to appeal to us until we finally decided to purchase our own retreat. We found a 200-year-old farmhouse that captured our hearts and imagination. Our love for architecture and my wife’s artistic talents helped us envision how the farmhouse could be historically restored. We loved planning the restoration and feel well rewarded each time we stay at our French farmhouse.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
We enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of our farmhouse and village life. The forest to the east of our property provides a lovely roundabout walking path to the village of St. Severin. The relaxed ambiance always recharges our creative spirit and is the perfect backdrop to visit with friends. Our friends who have visited from the United States have been awed by the charm of our home and old-world lifestyle. It became the launching pad for us to explore the French countryside, even branching out to the upper Dordogne, the Lot River, the Atlantic Ocean and Bordeaux. We can say we truly experience the country and life of France, not just the tourist spots. The weather is wonderful in Spring, Summer and Fall.
