Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Having had successful careers in the UK we decided to move to France and try life over here and have never regretted the decision. The pace of life, the ambiance and the culture suit us perfectly. Being definite countryside dwellers this area of France with its wonderful variety; rolling hills, rivers, steeper mounts, is an absolute delight.
Why the Owner Chose Monpazier: When asked 'Why here?' the answer must be 'Because it just felt right'. Les Faures has a very special feel to it, to such an extent that two previous, and now very elderly ex-residents arrived to ask 'to go down memory lane' and relive their very positive experiences.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: The manor sits on the top of its own mount giving wonderful panoramic views and the sunrises and sunsets can be truly spectacular. The estate is organic and the meadows and woods abound with flowers, birds and wildlife. It is however well placed for visiting the Dordogne region with its chateaux, caves, bastide villages, and river. There is so much to do and see that a traveler can easily return several times and always find things of interest, just as we ourselves are still discovering hidden gems.
