‘Le Bonheur’ (Happiness) is a beautifully restored 18th Century farmhouse set perfectly in an acre of tranquil private grounds in sunny South-West France. It is in an idyllic position within the undulating Bordeaux countryside, with vineyards all around and down a short lane that only services three properties, so is tranquil, secluded and private without being remote. From the breakfast terrace, it has beautiful views across the 10x5m private pool and a small vale to the local
Church and vineyards on one side, and across the Duras vineyards on the other. The area is one of the most lovely in France, with lots to do and see. Le Bonheur has been carefully and tastefully restored, with original oak beams & restored stone walls throughout. The idyllic 10x5m pool is surrounded by a large terrace with elaborate lighting and has a purpose built BBQ area at the shallow end of the pool.
