Originally from the UK but we lived in the Isle of Man for over 20 years. We arrived in France in 2002 and bought our home Burthes, in Aiguillon South West France here in the Lot et Garonne, the sixth house that we viewed. The property Gone Fishin' and grounds were originally a tobacco farm, the property nestles on its own 22-acres and is over one hundred years old. It was sympathetically renovated and brought up to date by the previous owners Our contribution to renovation has been mainly cosmetic, making it a more "cheerful house" and adding more colour and character to a wonderful established garden and orchard. We were ready for opening in 2005 with the approval of the Mairie in Aiguillon ( our local village). To the East side of our main house is your home from home, a self catering cottage with your own large private garden, terrace,BBQ and sunloungers. We have a productive kitchen garden, fruit orchard and six hens (which we call 'the girls'!). We share the eggs and any produce from the kitchen garden or orchard with our guests, for free of course. All this is for us a great source of enjoyment as our guests appreciate fresh food and a colourful and tidy garden.
