Basque Farmhouse is a luxuriously restored 14th century farm house set in its own grounds. The grounds consist of 15 acres of woodlands, meadows and lawns with a private pool. It has magnificent views over the surrounding countryside and the rolling hills beyond. Henry IV of France lived in the house during his reign. He was assassinated in Paris in 1610, despite being perhaps the most liked of all French Kings. The local area is known as “Basque”, Henry IV’s name. Francoise Valadie’s family owned the house for some time and sold it in the 1960s. Her father, a member of the resistance, hid in the cellar under the dining room floor d...uring the World War II. The trap door remains to this day. The farmhouse is situated between the beautiful medieval towns of Castillonnes, Villereal, Issigeac and Monflanquin, each of which have markets on different days of the week.
