For several years now I own a house in France, in the beautiful Lot et Garonne region.
The name of my house “Fon d’Argent” is, according to the people here in the area, a corruption of “Fountain of Silver”, because there was once a spring on the site.
Lieudit Fon d’Argent borders directly on a small village St. Victor, but is completely hidden on the edge of the hilltop.
From the grounds there is a magnificent view over the valley and in the distance you can see the beautiful village of Beauville.
From my own experience I know that you will have a great holiday in my house. A place of peace and comfort. In an area that has everything to offer. Nature, beautiful villages, wonderful restaurants and great cities such as Bergerac, Bordeaux and Toulouse.
The house itself has a spacious terrace. There is a large table with six chairs and a parasol. A bench on the terrace itself and one under the linden tree, there is a bbq and a herb garden. All this near the comfortable and well-equipped kitchen.
