However, on Monday everything is open, so long as it is not a fete day. We recommend buying the minimum and go to the market at Valence on Tuesday.

La Provinciale is a handsome old building full of charm, set on the side of a valley with stunning views. The house is spacious and fully equipped with everything one could possibly need, the gardens are large and open, full of flowers and fruit trees, with a large swimming pool on one of the several terraces. You are surrounded by peach, cherry, nectarine and grape fields, with medieval hill villages, fantastic markets, restaurants, as well as walking, cycling and tennis nearby. We had a wonderful tranquil stay there and we will certainly be coming back.
Perched on the edge of an idyllic small French hamlet, La Provinciale was everything we had hoped for - with unparalleled views, secluded peace and tranquility, and tons of old French charm, the location and house were second to none. Perfect for 3 families with children, for two couples it offered us lots of space and freedom to relax, unwind and enjoy. The house was very well presented and provided all the necessities needed, including games, towels and bedding. The terrace was the perfect place for every meal and the Pool, although cold (it was the start of October!) was well maintained and offered exceptional views with vineyards and sunflower fields a few feet away. The local area offers endless opportunities for activities, visits and eating/drinking, all within a short drive from the house, with Laureate being particularly special. I would unhesitatingly recommend La Provinciale to anyone who just wants to get away from it all, kick back, relax, and take in rural French life as it should be - an excellent holiday.
We couldn't have been happier with our stay. We were welcomed with cheese, bread and wine in the kitchen abc fresh flowers on the table. The place was in immaculate condition with stunning views. We were sad to have to leave.
What a beautiful house, the views are so stunning, vast across the valley. A fabulous upper terrace, covered, allowing easy eating straight from the kitchen out of the hot sun. The garden is full of roses and the lilacs just finished. The house is well equipped and full of character, clearly a home. Loads of books, for kids and adults. Pool beautiful, on the edge of the world.
If you love food, the Moissac markets on Saturday and Sunday are fabulous. Local restaurants abound, we loved Lauzerte, so beautiful. Loads to do with the kids, walking down to the reservoir across the road is a wonderful safe place for adventures. Loved canoeing from St Antonin de Noble Val down the gorge, kids loved it. But their favourite was the tree zip wire park at Cahors.
The house was well maintained and clean, lovely welcome wine and cheese. Yes, I would recommend this house, and will come back again next year.
