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.
The house is designed for large gatherings with an impressive 50sq metre lounge with imported leather sofas, contemporary log burning fire, large flat screen TV, DVD player and Wii games console ideal for those lazy afternoons or an evening entertaining throughout the year. The formal dining room also enjoys its own contemporary log burning oven and comfortable seating for 10 with additional seating and space for up to 14 people allowing you the benefit to eat in style the endless seasonal produce the region has to offer.
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.
