Welcome to a unique and intriguing property located in the heart of Aquitaine, Dordogne, in the charming town of Vélines, France. This significant property exudes a rustic charm and offers a magnificent opportunity for those looking to immerse themselves in the tranquil French countryside while having easy access to modern amenities and the vibrant local culture.

This expansive property features a main stone house alongside an ensemble of three ancillary buildings, creating a versatile living arrangement that can cater to a variety of needs. The main residence boasts five bedrooms spread over two distinctive and completely separate sleeping areas, each accessible by its own staircase. This layout is particularly favourable for anyone considering a bed and breakfast enterprise, offering privacy and independence for both the owners and guests (note that this would be subject to obtaining the necessary permissions).

Adjacent to the main house is a cosy guest house which provides additional accommodation with an upstairs bedroom. The potential for expanding this space is notable, with an adjoining garage that could be transformed into another bedroom, pending authorization.

Further enhancing the property’s potential is a spacious stone barn with approximately 100 square meters of floor space which could be renovated into a gîte, a games room, or even a sports hall, adding another layer of versatility to this already appealing setting (again, subject to necessary permissions).

Additionally, there is a useful outbuilding comprising a garage with a lofted area plus a level entry cellar that offers additional storage solutions or could be adapted into a creative space.

Set on extensive grounds, the property features a large, sheltered garden that invites relaxation and recreation, complete with a swimming pool—an ideal respite during the warm summers typical of the Dordogne region. The garden also includes a kennel or fenced-in henhouse, and a vegetable patch, perfect for those who enjoy a sustainable lifestyle.

Living in Vélines offers residents a unique blend of rural serenity and convenient access to the necessary amenities. The local area is rich in culture and history, with numerous outdoor activities available such as hiking, cycling, and canoeing along the picturesque rivers. The town itself, while peaceful, is vibrant with community activities and local markets that showcase the best of French artisanal products and produce.

For international buyers or expatriates, Vélines is an attractive proposition. The area enjoys a temperate climate, marked by distinct seasonal changes that each bring their own charm and array of activities. Local vineyards and traditional cuisine offer a taste of authentic French living, while the inclusiveness and warmth of the community make integration a pleasant process.
