Sainte Foy is a very quiet, tranquil, tiny hamlet of 6 habitable houses and numerous barns situated on a small peninsula in the hills between the Lot et Garonne valleys. Variously described as being in Aquitaine, Gascony or Lot et Garonne (for obvious reasons!), the area is one of outstanding beauty and steeped in history.
Situated just 3-4 kilometres from the very pretty village of Prayssas (which provides all facilities) and only a 20 minute drive from the attractive and thriving towns of Agen and Villeneuve-sur-Lot, the property is ideally situated to provide the perfect holiday in the South-West of France. Each property is designed with al fresco living in mind, but a word of warning, you will be surrounded by some of the finest and most reasonable restaurants in the region - if not France - and once tempted…
If the lure of al fresco life and wonderful restaurants is not enough, check out the gorgeous dining experience that can be provided in the comfort of your holiday home by Dolmayrac Cuisine at a very reasonable cost. Have a look on our site cuisine page, found under the location tab, to have a look at menus and wine lists. You won't be disappointed!
Extending to approximately 4 acres in total, the property offers plenty of scope to wander and watch the prolific wildlife. Birds of prey, tawny and barn owls and deer are regular visitors to the valley, with the occasional sighting of wild boar and badgers. The grounds to the property slope down the valley below the elevated top terrace which houses the 3 properties and the magnificent pool terrace. The pool terrace offers a large swimming pool with panoramic views and breathtaking sunsets. Within the grounds can be found a petanque court sheltered by a very old oak tree, various picnic benches, an open meadow and a young orchard which is starting to boast a variety of fruits.
Also within the grounds can be found an extremely old terracotta bread oven, which is now housed in a recently restored small barn to the side of La Maison.
