View across valley from Préniac
About Préniac:

Originally an ancient hamlet, Préniac is a collection of traditional white stone buildings in the Quercyoise style, sympathetically converted into charming and tasteful holiday accommodation and a large studio workshop.

Built around the delightful courtyard of a lovely 18th century farmhouse and perfectly situated on the brow of a hill, Préniac commands stunning 360-degree views across the beautiful rolling countryside of the southern Lot.

Set in 9 acres of tranquil parkland, which includes a small lake, it also has a 12 x 6 metre swimming pool with enchanting views across the valley from the sun terraces.

Literally surrounded by rare orchids in Spring, and superbly located amidst sunflower fields and vineyards, Préniac is just outside the pretty flower filled village of St Pantaléon and 20 minutes drive from the River Lot.
