Best for ac­ces­si­bil­ity: the Dor­dogne

Country Life Every Week - - Property Comment -

For the price of a fam­ily apart­ment in Paris, you can buy a château or man­sion in the Dor­dogne, set in beau­ti­ful coun­try­side, with nearby mar­kets brim­ming with de­li­cious, sea­sonal pro­duce, en­thuses Jane Berry of Leggett Im­mo­bilier.

The Dor­dogne, which is part of the Aquitaine, has been a par­tic­u­lar favourite with the Amer­i­cans and Bri­tish; the re­gion is home to the high­est num­ber of ex­pa­tri­ates in France out­side Paris. One of the rea­sons is its ac­ces­si­bil­ity: there are four air­ports serv­ing the area, in­clud­ing Brive, Li­mo­ges, Berg­erac and Bordeaux-mérignac, so it’s not chal­leng­ing to find a prop­erty less than an hour from the near­est flight back to the UK.

This mai­son de maître is just over six miles from Berg­erac air­port. The house has seven bed­rooms, two of which are in a con­verted wine store. Out­side is a heated swim­ming pool with a Jacuzzi and ham­mam. €466,400. Leggett Im­mo­bilier (0870 011 5151)
