In the Cantal, southernmost part of the Auvergne, an

landscaped mature gardens, shrub and tree-filled banks,

walled vegetable patch. All adjacent to farmland with
stunning country views.
Situated just south of Aurilllac and near Conques, one of the
great historic sites of the Lot Valley, the property sits in a

beyond. Laundry room, storeroom, boiler room and

house, sits below the house. There are two 5,000L
underground rainwater storage tanks.
