Espere is a traditional ‘longueur’ built farmhouse over 200 years old and was probably the dowager house to the adjoining fruit farm. The property was restored from a ruin in 2001 and has been since brought to a high standard retaining many original features and providing an excellent level of comfort with accommodation for up to two families. Situated close to the medieval towns of Penne D'Agenais, Monflanquin, and Villeneuve Sur Lot, the property lies on the outskirts of the village of St Aubin famous for its annual prune fair. The house is surrounded by beautiful countryside with unparalleled views of prune and cherry orchards and within easy reach of many traditional French country markets, excellent restaurants and historical places of interest. Bergerac airport is an easy 45 mins. Bordeaux and Toulouse airports are under 2 hours’ drive. Agen and its TGV stop from Paris (4 hours) is a 45 minutes’ drive. The Channel ports are 9-10 hours driving. There is a large barn, a 5 x 10 metre swimming pool and a secluded 1-acre garden.

Description of sleeping capacity:

Bedroom 1- master with en-suite (shower). There are two further double bedrooms one with four single beds and sitting area (ideal for 4 children as a dorm) or for two adults who like to ‘spread’ their things where two of the single beds can be configured as super king size. There is a further sofa bed in the mezzanine sitting room for an older ‘teenager' or single adult. There is a large family bathroom with bath, shower and loo. There is a further w.c. adjoining the inner hall. The master bedroom has a shower, hand basin and loo en-suite. A cot, highchair and some bedding are available for children under two years of age at no extra charge. Dogs are allowed by arrangement.


The property has not been specially adapted for wheelchairs but doorways, the two downstairs bedrooms and the family bathroom are accessible by a wheelchair.


There is canoeing on the River Lot at Lustrac (3 miles away) where canoes may be hired. There are several companies hiring canoes on the River Dordogne (70 mins drive) for a full day out. There are two livery stables in the village where riding can be arranged.

The farmhouse is frequently used by the owners from October to May but can be available for letting during this timeframe by arrangement.

The garden is unfenced and immediately adjoins farmland. Crops vary from Wheat to Corn and of course Sunflowers which are a principal crop in the region. The pool is 90 cm deep at the shallow end accessed by a ladder with a gradual slope to the deep end (depth of 1.80cm). The pool is fitted with a safety alarm but is not fenced therefore supervision of young children is essential at all times. Pool side furniture and sun beds are provided. The caretakers of the property live close by and are available for any advice or assistance needed.

Perfect Getaway

By Alice Shail on 30-Aug-2021

Fabulous house in the most perfect spot for days out or just relaxing by the pool. We have been to Espere for a few years now and as a family we just love it. Completely equips with everything nescesary for the perfect family holiday but big enough to share with friends too. Ideally located for days out, a short drive to, what my children call the "Water park" Piscine Malbentre in Pujols, a fabulous new riding school to the south side of Saint Aubin. And for trips up to the Dordogne for canoeing and sightseeing. We love Espere and would recommend it to anyone, the addition of the covered verandah has made such a difference to the house and makes it possible to enjoy the outside what ever the weather. We hope to return soon. Review Submitted: 30-Aug-2021 Date of Stay: 16 -26 August 2021 Source: Chez Nous

Fabulous place for the family to spend time together

By Beth Whiteman on 26-Oct-2018

The perfect place to unwind and recharge - Espere is situated in a beautiful spot and the open views from the terrace are worthy of painting! It is easy to quickly feel ''at home'' here as the owners have equipped the house with everything needed to enjoy a self-catering holiday. The quality of the furnishings and decor is high and equal to a boutique hotel. The pool is perfect too! Highly recommended.

Lovely, well equipped house (feels very homely and not like a hired gite but like a proper home). Pool was very clean and just the right size; being in close proximity to the house meant it was great for watching little ones in the pool too. The surrounding countryside was like something from a painting. My kids had so much fun jumping on the top of the hay bales which were all lined up ready to be collected. Very relaxing, get away from it all location and yet only 15k from Villeneuve Sur Lot. Would definitely stay again and would not hesitate to recommend it. Owner was very helpful. Thanks Guy and Torill. Review Submitted: 11-Aug-2018 Date of Stay: July 2018 Source: ChezNous
