Franziska & Michela Thomann purchased this House in 1985
Why Franziska & Michela Thomann chose Fleurac
Worldclass private swimming pool (20x45ft, up to 12ft deep), fantastic views from terrasse, pool, lounge & BBQ area. Idyllic and isolated yet centrally located in a UNESCO world heritage zone and major tourism region. Numerous prehistoric and medieval historic sites close by as well as traditional culinary delights and child-friendly attractions. Great for multi-generational and pet-friendly holidays.
What makes this House unique
The wide views from the terrasse over the valley and rolling hills is unique and soothing. Seeing as the house is oriented South-West you can enjoy magnificent sunsets from the pool area, the terrasse and also the BBQ area. Our grazing sheep in the adjacent fields add to the idyllic feel. With no neighbors close by, the extraordinarily big private swimming pool (20x34ft and up to 12ft deep) and its surrounding sunbathing area invite you to swim, play and relax at your leisure.
