Héritiers Comtesse F. de Saint-Exupéry


This beautiful residence, looking out over the Dordogne’s right bank from the slopes up-river from Bergerac, was formerly a lordly manor.

It is said to have been founded in the 13th century by a natural son of England’s King Edward III named Edward Tyrgan. The Château de Tiregand, listed in the official supplement of France’s Historic Buildings, now belongs to the heirs of the Countess François de St Exupéry.
