Where is it?
The property is situated near the spectacular historic hilltop town of Najac (see below) — unsurprisingly named one of the most beautiful villages in France– in the southern French department of Aveyron.
The town of Albi, with its spectacular Cathedral, is just 45 km away and the property is also within striking distance of the small, picturesque city of Rodez (79km) and Montauban (64km).
It is also just under two hours away from Toulouse-Blagnac airport by car which offers a wide choice of flights around Europe, including flights to the UK and Ireland.

Why buy it?
Estate agent Leggett Immobilier says: “With views over the lake from the lounge, kitchen and master bedroom suite and woodland views elsewhere, this is a tranquil spot for relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of a busy life.
“Many walkways have been made through the private woods on both sides of the lake. The interior is being finished to a very high standard with high quality tiling and oak fittings throughout. Really must be visited to appreciate this rare setting.”
