Villa Banninck is located on the border of the Dordogne and the Charente, in the south-west of France in the village of Laprade, close to Aubeterre sur Dronne (une des pluses beaux villages de France). The villa has all the comforts and can accommodate up to 10 people. From Utrecht the travel distance is almost 1000 km. There are also good and cheap flights via Rotterdam or Schiphol to Bordeaux (Ryanair, KLM and Easyjet) and via Bergerac (Transavia). The journey time by car from Bordeaux or Bergerac to villa Banninck is about 1 hour.
The stately villa is about 150 years old and completely restyled and redecorated in 2014 with modern, practical and luxurious furniture.
Characteristics: luxury and comfort while retaining authentic features of the original functions. The redevelopment was carried out under the direction of the Dutch designer Joris van Grinsven, who gave a number of historic buildings a second life in the region (seigneursdeclerans.com).
Around the house are ancient trees and there is a lovely terrace with sun or shade as desired. In the garden of approximately 8000m2 is a new swimming pool with spacious terrace, luxurious loungers, large parasols and a terrace covered with shade. The swimming pool (6 * 12m) is safely fenced.

Dreams are not just about dreaming: also to make true! One of those dreams was a house in South West France. Because of the mild climate and the beautiful landscape. We were looking for an authentic house, with history and comfortable and spacious. We found that at Aubeterre sur Dronne. In the spring and summer of 2014, under the guidance of "our" designer Joris van Grinsven (seigneursdeclerans.com), we worked very hard. And .... It has become a fantastic house: Come and convince yourself!
