Our traditional C18th  Haute Quercy Farmhouse, built on a Southwest  facing ridge, is part of a small hamlet, in the heart of "La Châtaigneraie".   Set in seven acres with panoramic views in excess of 50km over the Bave Valley between Saint-Céré and Figeac in the Lot. It has its own 12 x 6 m chemical free swimming pool,  plus an extra large paddling step.







We have been careful to retain as much of its original  charm and character as possible.  It is very old, 1731, built more than 70 years before the French Revolution. Thick local Sandstone/Limestone & Granite Walls with a slate roof.  Has exposed beams, creaking floorboards and numerous nooks and crannies.

 Une surprise à chaque pas



The house is laid out so that it is just perfect for a couple on their own, as we do many a time. 

Or of course for sharing with another family. 

We find from experience that it is always best to book a property with more room than you actually need and although we are equipped to sleep up to eleven + small child it is always preferable to be less.


Do check our rates for low occupancy.  As you will note prices are based on six persons.





As a final note to our introduction to our property.  Due to various past scams that have been reported, if you would like any confirmation as to what you see is actually ours please ask for proof.

With Children the Swimming pool is usually the centre of a truly fantastic holiday.  It has a large first entrance step then two more that lead into a gradual slope to the deep end.  It is completely secluded from any neighbours. The views are breath taking.
