Prunes are big business in the Lot-et-Garonne town of Agen. Whether sampled raw, pureed or soaked in Armagnac, dried plums are especially celebrated in the Big Prune Show, or Les Fetes D’Agen, on 26-28th August. Here we pick three lovely houses only a (plum) stone’s throw away!
Lovely four-bedroom architect designed house in a leafy suburb of Agen, with extensive garden, pool and mature fruit trees. An ideal full-time home.
Oozing with ancient charm, this is a five-bedroom stone chartreuse with guest house pigeonnier and pool house, just reduced in price! North of Agen, it sits high with beautiful views.
Perfectly configured to capitalise all those prune-loving tourists, this eight-bedroom property offers a three-bed gite barn conversion, with pool, poolhouse and beautiful garden.
