Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

.

Our house is a single storey, traditional property built out of pale golden stone, with extensive barns and outbuildings and a medieval well, sitting in its own parkland of around 2 hectares of fields, orchard and gardens. It is on one of the Compostela pilgrimage routes, within walking distance of the ancient market town of Condom (1.5kms) which has a population of around 8,000 and amenities including an outdoor swimming pool, market, supermarkets, hotels, restaurants, cafes, cinema, theatre, river port and beautiful 12thc cathedral. The area is beautiful and very rural with little villages and bastides (hilltop villages) dotted throughout rolling, well-farmed countryside and woods. Almost all villages will have a restaurant ranging from very simple to sophisticated food. The climate is pleasant throughout the year, around 20/22 degrees in spring and autumn rising to the high 20's/30's in July and August. Winter can be cold during the night but generally warms up during the day

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area
