PeyrenÃ¨gre is in the small village of Labretonie, tucked away in the Aquitaine region of South West of France between Bordeaux and Toulouse. It is in the department of the Lot-et-Garonne (named after the two rivers that flow through it) and the nearest main town is Marmande .
PeyrenÃ¨gre means black stone in the local dialect and is set in 3.5 hectares acres. The house sits on a hillside and is surrounded by orchards and farmland which is planted with wheat and sunflowers. The views from PeyrenÃ¨gre are exceptional and the sunrises and sunsets are spectacular.. The rolling landscape stretches out to the nearby larger village of St Barthelemy, changing colour with the seasons. Labretonie itself is a small village with a mainly farming community. The region is famous for nuts, plums and tomatoes which are grown in profusion around the village.
