Affectionately known by some as Dordogneshire, this area of south-west France has long been favoured by holidaymakers and expats from the UK.
Having fallen in love with the charm of the jardin à l’anglaise, many French gardeners have incorporated this style into their landscaping and the gardens at this architect-designed four-bedroom property are sure to make you feel right at home.
The 2.5ha of grounds offer more than just pretty flowers: there is a productive potager, a paddock with shelter and further field, a more formal garden with fountains and statues and an extensive orchard boasting approximately 100 fruit trees. There are also covered terraces around the home with a built-in barbecue – perfect for eating out in the French sunshine. beauxvillages.com
