Good Monday morning! A beautiful equestrian estate with stables set on 21 ACRES of French countryside!
This seems like a dream project – your own French country equestrian estate for under $500K USD! A beautiful house with four bedrooms, two barns, a tack room, garage, and stables with three boxes. Located in Lot et Garonne, in the rural region of southwestern France. One could host equestrian retreats, have a bed & breakfast, or simply a luxurious family estate! The village of Cocumont seems to be very communal, lots of festivals, and I’m sure lots of small town gossip – seems like something out of a cozy novel!
