Property Details:

Holiday House, Razac D’Eymet, South West France. (Half hour drive from Bergerac airport.)

A “Ready-made” & fully furnished – electricity, water & drainage – character house in a very attractive area.

A 400 year old village house where the character has been largely preserved. The house next door in the terrace has a date inscribed “May 1627”.

It was for many years, before the present owners bought it in 1973, the village “buvette” or bar-café. It is two doors from the “mairie” and 100 yards from the war memorial & church.

The house, as a purchase, would suit those wanting a “ready-made” holiday house with lots of country character.
For holidays primarily in the warmer parts of the year – Easter to October – as there is no central heating or wall insulation. Thick walls however make it refreshingly cool in the hot weather

It has a 30 foot long “sejour” –kitchen, dining, living room – and a separate heavy-beamed “bar”/sitting room (250 square feet). There are many country artifacts, which a buyer might value.
Through to the back of the house is a downstairs toilet/shower room and a small outdoor courtyard which opens onto a quiet lane.

Upstairs are two very large bedrooms with fireplaces – (with three traditional beds) A toilet/shower room at the front.

Ten minutes drive away from the little village of “Razac d'Eymet” is the very attractive small town, Eymet, with its arcaded central square, river, and everything you need – several restaurants, dozens of shops, a Carrefour supermarket and newsagents.

The two taxes amount currently to about 800 euros a year.

Bergerac Airport with international flights from several UK airports is just 30 minutes drive away through country roads and minor lanes.

France’s autoroute network reaches via the A89 at Mussidan to within 50 minutes drive of the village.

There are so many rather special places to visit. So when you are not simply going into Eymet, to the Thursday market, perhaps you can take a day’s outing - 20 - 80 kilometres away – to any of a dozen chateaux of 13th -14th centuries. Likewise to fascinating small medieval towns – many of them “bastides” - and the Dordogne riverside villages. A fantastic cavern – Proumeyssac – with “son-et-lumiere” an hour's drive. Dozens of excellent restaurants. Wine caves & local market days are a delight.
