15th century manor house and estate in Périgord, France

France is truly the country of luxury, gorgeous natural setting and luxurious estates and palaces. So is this superb 15th century manor in Perigórd. Built in 1470, on the site on which there was previously constructed an old strong house, it was designed and completed after the Hundred Years’ War.

The palace used to be given from generation to generation among the women of the family, as dowry and reflects the architecture behind Périgord Noir. The estate is located near Sarlat and covers an approximate area of 98 acres of subsided terrain. Its lauze stone roofs and symmetric proportions make it a true eye-catcher.

It’s now rebuilt, restored and repainted, being festooned with 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms over a living space of 4,306 square feet. It also features reception rooms, vaulted cellar, a gorgeous garden, lake, pool and a spring. A fine addition to this is the fact that the rooms can be extended, at wish.

Priced at roughly $3.24 million or €2.5, it silently awaits a new owner, to revive it and to restore its former lively atmosphere.
