Escape to Southwest France

Uniquely French’s Le Prieure  is located in the tiny village of Pressigny in southwest France. Next door to the village church,  Le Prieure was once a part of the religious life of the village, providing a home for priests and monks in times gone by. The picturesque honey coloured stone building is approached from a small cypress lined driveway next to the church. The apse of the buiding  forms the boundary of one part of the garden, itself  tucked away behind large white metal gates and high honey coloured stone walls.
