Beautiful stone hilltop home with stunning views and pool
Situated in the beautiful Tarn et Garonne, often referred to as the Tuscany of France, you will find Montage. Set high on a hill with breathtaking views over the valley, this recently renovated residence, comfortably accommodating 8 people, offers modern facilities while maintaining the character features built into it by craftsmen over its hundreds of years existence.
Montage can accommodate 8 to 10 people (1 extra large bedroom can be set as a family suite with king size bed and two children's singles for a family of four).
Upon your arrival, as you pass the adjacent forest, you are immediately greeted by the stone tower, which holds the petite library, and the breakfast terrace where you can enjoy your croissants and coffee in the morning.
Entering through the double doors, you find yourself in the enormous main living area where you can relax in the cool during summer or warm yourself in front of the cosy fireplace in winter. From here you can make your way to the huge rear terrace, elevated over the valley below. This is a beautiful place to dine externally or just relax and take in the superb views and tranquility of the area.
The chefs kitchen boasts stone work tops and modern appliances and features a large island bench where there’s room for everyone to be involved in preparing meals. Here you can cook up your selection of local products and use the fresh organic herbs and vegetables from the garden.
All four bedrooms are very generous in size and most have fully equipped ensuite bathrooms. Fitted with either king or super king size beds, each has its own unique flavour guaranteeing a relaxed and restful nights sleep.
The property boasts its own small wood which extends down the hillside where it is possible to while away your time in quiet contemplation, watching the birds and squirrels, and perhaps enjoying a glass or two of the local wine, which is known the world over. The property also features Free WiFi, for your convenience.
The front garden and lawn extends out to the pool area with its sun lounges, glistening water and barbecue facilities. This is where you can wind down in the summer months, cook up for friends, or take a refreshing dip and make the most of up to 300 days of sunshine each year.
Nearby Lauzerte is a medieval bastide village and one of the 'plus beaux villages' of France (the most beautiful villages in France). In its historic centre you will find restaurants, cafes, bars, a twice weekly market, as well as essentials like doctors, pharmacy, bakery and a modern supermarket. Lauzerte is an official stopping point on the route of Saint Jacques of Compostella and is buzzing with activity, particularly during summer. Join the happy throngs at the weekly summer marche gourmande (evening food market), local brocantes (antique markets), festivals and celebrations. The tourist information office in Lauzerte can guide you on a host of other local attractions and events.
The area offers numerous recreational activities ranging from walking or cycling in the leafy countryside to the thrill of hot air ballooning or joy flights over the magnificent valleys. For those with a gastronomic bent, the area is home to renowned wines, foie gras, the world’s best prunes, apples and other locally grown produce. Local specialties are available for tasting and purchase at various farms and retail outlets or alternatively you can indulge your taste buds at nearby restaurants, which offer fine food at reasonable prices. A huge number of other cultural and historical sites are within easy driving distance of Montage, including the Lascaux caves, Sarlat, Rocamadour, Saint Cirq Lapopie, Albi, Carcassone, the wine centres of Bordeaux and St Emilion, and many, many more.
Come and stay – experience the wonders of the area and the warmth of the people and be one of the many who has fallen in love with the Tarn et Garonne region and with Montage!

About Shvorn King
Australians, living in France, we have enjoyed renovating our beautiful house and now share it with holiday-makers from around the world.
Shvorn King purchased this House in 2013
Why Shvorn King chose Montagudet
This is one of the most beautiful rural areas of France, and we fell in love with the house, its views and the local area after having travelled extensively around France. The climate is wonderful - warm and sunny in summer - perfect for the pool and long evenings on the terraces. The winters are relatively mild, but cold enough to enjoy the wood fire. We have renovated the house substantially, retaining the character features, while introducing some modern decor and brand new kitchen and bathrooms.
What makes this House unique
The amazing views over the valley and nearby village, watching the sunsets (or sunrises depending on your preference) from the terrace, relaxing poolside, or just lounging around in the house. The beautiful stone work and the spaciousness of the house are special features too.

It's as good as it looks. We particularly appreciated the pool + 3 outdoor sitting areas, the well equipped kitchen and good quality bathrooms. And all that space means you don't feel you're living on top of each other. Steve struck the ideal balance between being friendly and available but not intrusive.
Thanks for your lovely review of Montage France. We're very pleased you and your family enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back one day.
What a wonderful week! This gorgeous house with its views, pool, luxurious bedrooms and fabulous kitchen was a holiday dream come true. The property has obviously been thoughtfully renovated - and there was nothing we could think of that had been overlooked. There was a number of spaces for everyone to be together and some great little nooks to curl up with a book alone. We shopped in the local village for fresh breads, cheese and wine and enjoyed these on the great deck in the evening. By the end of the week we felt almost French!
Fantastic stay in the French countryside
Our group of 5 Australians visited this delightfully renovated French country house last week. Our hosts have done an incredible job in their efforts to present this house to their guests. We have stayed in a number of vacation rental properties, including France and we would have to say the quality of this property has been the best. All bedrooms were ensuited and a separate powder room. The kitchen has everything that you will need for your stay especially if you want to chef up some of the local delicacies at home. The pool, ah the pool. We stayed at an extraordinary hot spell with mid 30s every day. Sadly the poor yard was baking but the pool was a beautiful reprieve after our days travels around the district. Our hosts highlighted the hotspots in the district and we experienced many of those. So much to do yet so little time. We would definitely go back to Montage.
Luxe et calme dans une région superbe
Cette région du Tarn et Garonne est superbe ( collines vallonnées avec de jolies bastides à visiter ). La proximité du Lot est un atout certain.
La maison, une jolie bâtisse au charme authentique, est luxueusement aménagée. Tout est neuf, et fait pour se sentir comme chez soi.
Les propriétaires sont accueillants et chaleureux.
Il y a beaucoup d'anglais dans cette région et l'on sent que les commerçants font tout pour leur rendre un séjour agréable.
Le superbe village de Lauzerte est à 8 mn en voiture : on y trouve tout. C'est très pratique.
A recommander sans aucune réserve.
Merci beaucoup pour votre bon avis. Nous somme très heureux que vous aimez notre maison et la région et que vous avez apprécié votre séjour.
Tolles Ferienhaus in ruhiger Lage
Die Ausstattung ist noch besser, als es die Fotos ausdrücken können. Es fehlt an nichts. Das Haus ist in sauberen gepflegtem Zustand.
Das Mieten und die Torbetreuung durch den Vermieter war sehr gut. Vor Ort kümmerten sich Pam und Ken für jegliche Belange.
Es ist sehr ruhig und der nächste Ort ist 5km entfernt.
Da die Gegend touristisch nicht so erschlossen ist, hat man bei Touren in die hübschen kleineren Orte der Umgebung nicht den typischen Touristenrummel. Also eher etwas für den ruhigeren Urlaub. Bemerkenswert eine Alarmanlage für den Pool, was für Familien mit kleineren Kindern sehr interessant sein dürfte.
Wir hatten einen rundherum wunderschönen Urlaub hier.
Additional pricing information
