A piece of paradise atop a hill with fab views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five days in February and had the most fantastic time. The house is at the end of a long private drive on top of a hill with stunning views – whether the sun was out or the mist was hiding the woods in the distance. The house is delightful, the upstairs living room and kitchen has a great feeling and great proportions, lots of space and light. We stayed in the large double bedroom downstairs. There are thick walls, honey-coloured stone, beams and most importantly – very snug and warm in the chilly February temperatures. The kitchen has everything you need on holiday (especially a dishwasher), and the peace and stillness was fantastic. The house is about 20m away from the owners’ house, making it private yet at the same time not cutting you off. James and Diana are the perfect hosts, giving us lots of advice about what to do in the area and going out of their way to ensure our stay was as great as possible, which it was. Montcuq is a fun little town to be near, with a market on Sundays and a feeling that you are living the French life. We’ll be back!

A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 fabulous weeks in this cosy house. Despite the season (we stayed there in octobre) it was warm enough to use the swimming pool or bathe in the little lake nearby. Our Kids loved it there because it has a lovely sandbeach. They also loved playing in the beautiful garden. House, garden and last but not least the owners are very kid-friendly. All of us enjoyed the peace and calm of the place. It caters for every taste: nature lovers will enjoy the beautiful walks, culture& history lovers the many sights (eg. Cahors, Moissac) and wine lovers will appreciate the delicious Malbec wine). At the end of our holiday we all felt like our son who said: "Tell the owners we want to stay here!"...

Wir waren im Oktober für drei wunderbare Wochen in diesem gemütlichen Ferienhaus. Die Lage ist toll: schöne Aussicht und vollkommene Ruhe! Das Haus selbst ist ein altes Steinhaus und sehr gemütlich eingerichtet (mit guter Ausstattung).

Da es im Südwesten Frankreichs auch im Herbst oft angenehm warm ist, konnten wir sogar noch den Pool nutzen. Ausserdem hat es ganz in der Nähe einen hübschen kleinen Badesee mit feinem Sandstrand - unsere beiden Kinder waren begeistert. Sie mochten auch den schönen Garten, wo sie nach Herzenslust spielen konnten. Die Eigentümer (welche ganz in der Nähe wohnen) sind wirklich sehr freundlich, hilfsbereit und kinderlieb.

In der Nähe (max. 1 Std. Autofahrt) hat es viele sehenswerte Ziele für Familien und Kulturinteressierte. Besonders empfehlenswert sind St-Cirq-Lapopie, Cahors, die Burgruine Bretenoux und das Kloster Moissac. Aber auch weiter entfernte Ziele im Périgord (z.B. Rocamadour) sind dank der Autobahn gut erreichbar (Fahrzeit ins Périgord ca. 1.5 - 2 Std.).

Aber in der näheren Umgebung des Ferienhauses ist es so schön, dass wir teilweise gar keine Lust auf grössere Unternehmungen hatten, sondern uns einfach auf der Terasse oder auf den Liegestühlen beim Pool entspannten. Der einzige kleine Wehmutstropfen war das Internet: leider funktionierte das WLAN oft nicht oder die Internetverbindung war überlastet... Trotzdem ging es uns allen am Ende des Urlaubes wie unserem Sohn, der meinte: "Sag Ihnen (gemeint waren die Eigentümer), dass wir hier bleiben wollen!"...

A great place to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for such a wonderful 2 weeks. All four of us enjoyed the gite and the pool was top notch. Best wishes to you all.

Whilst a rural idyll, you can enjoy a great walk down into Montcuq for le petit dejeuner and other essentials
