An idyllic limestone corps de ferme only 15 minutes from Najac.

Situated to the north of Najac, on the vast limestone plateau stretching north into the Lot, this property has been constructed over the centuries from local stone, and topped with slate roofng.  The current owner has lovingly restored these buildings, in some cases replacing all the timbers and slates,  resulting in a group of buildings which integrate perfectly into the surrounding countryside.
