Welcome to the 'Jean Michaud' website, a place for past, present and future guests of this beautiful house to share photos and experiences of the property, as well as learn more about it.
This beautiful farmhouse with dependences is attached to a vineyard in some 85 acres of the most stunning French countryside. The distant views are breathtaking and totally unspoilt, deer inhabit the parkland in front of the house. A stream runs through the privately owned valley below the property - there are pools in which to fish - and no neighbours to spoil this charming hideaway.
The estate is home to a 14 acre vineyard producing a Bergerac Red, Bergerac Sec (white) and Saussignac (sweet). Formerly owned by Kiri Te Kanawa this home is dearly loved and beautifully furnished making it extremely comfortable and relaxing.
The main house would sleep a family with 4 children and is entirely seperate from the converted barn where another couple and 2 children could stay. The barn houses a movie room and is a great place to keep children and teenagers entertained in the evening or out of the heat of the midday sun. There is also a pigeonnier which sleeps 4 which would be perfect for nannies or teenagers (please note the pigeonnier has direct access to the pool).
A handyman lives year round on the estate and is on hand every day to help with any enquiries. This is a destination for those in need of a rest.
There are many pretty Bastide Villages nearby such as Duras, Eymet and Sainte Foy La Grande. Bergerac Airport is twenty minutes away. There are daily markets within a few miles of the house, and the Chateau des Vigiers Golf and Country Club is five minutes North of the property.
Among the many activites are a pool and tennis court, fishing, archery and even a music room.
