DuPrem House and Alpaca Stud is an early 17th Century Grand Farmhouse in the heart of the Marcillac and Gaillac wine regions of south west France located just outside the celebrated and picturesque bastide town of Villefranche de Rouergue. This idyllic independent property is situated in its’ own spectacular and unspoilt 11 acre estate with a private, well stocked lake, fruit orchard, panoramic views across the stunning Aveyron countryside, along with a 13m X 6m Heated swimming pool and 8 person Hot Tub.

After a short 90 minute flight from Stansted Airport and a 40 minute drive from Rodez Airport you can be enjoying Aperitifs under the shade of the fruit trees or playing Boules in the stone walled courtyard easing you in to your holiday and away from the stresses of life in one of the last secret areas of France.

Once through the wrought iron gates of the large stone-walled courtyard the newly renovated living accommodation respectfully preserves the original character of the property whilst successfully enhancing it with luxurious contemporary design. 
 
The house sleeps eight in three large well appointed double bedrooms, with each with their own private bathroom facilities.

The summers are long in the Aveyron and as you step out of the large oak double doors of the house you can enjoy the courtyard with its variety of private ancient barns and bread-oven to explore or simply relax as the courtyard and Pool basque in the sun all day long and well into the evening, but not without their lazy shady areas. You can relax in the hammocks provided or choose to dine al fresco or maybe even successfully top up that tan well into the autumn with the variety of comfortable garden furniture.
