Guests (June 2017) said "We are so pleased that we chose to stay at Berty Gite. Ideal, beautiful location - excellent accommodation. Best gite we have ever stayed in".
Holiday in this charming rural property and relax and unwind as you adapt to the gentle pace of the South West of France.
Sleeps 2 - 6 in 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms, in spacious, comfortable gite. Lovely large heated salt water pool with roman steps. Situated in an idyllic location in rolling countryside, just 5 minutes from the medieval town of Montcuq with its fabulous Sunday market, in the wine growing areas of Cahors and Coteaux de Quercy. Set in over 2 acres of gardens, with plenty of room for sports and games, including our own archery range, and wonderful shady or sunny places for relaxing in. Our dark skies make for fabulous star gazing and we have a fully equipped astro photography observatory.
Berty is on the outskirts of the hamlet of Rouillac, known for its 12th century frescoes in the chapel. Situated on the pilgrims route of St Jaques de Compostela, this area is wonderful for walking, hiking and biking or just for enjoying nature. Our organic garden is very wildlife-friendly with numerous birds and butterflies.
The gite with its lovely Quercy stone walls, was once a barn and has been converted to provide comfortable accommodation for any time of the year. Cool in summer and cosy in winter, it is comfortably furnished and superbly equipped, with wonderful views over the gardens and the surrounding countryside, with fields of sunflowers, corn and melons.
All on one level, the gite has its own entrance on to the garden. Bedroom 1 has a 5' double bed and ensuite bathroom. Bedrooms 2 and 3 have twin beds and a shared bathroom. The larger bedroom can sleep 3 if needed, with the addition of a folding single bed. A baby cot can also be provided.
The open plan living room has a modern fully equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge and dining areas. The floodlit swimming pool (11m * 7m) with roman steps is for the exclusive use of our guests. It is fenced and has self closing gates, making it ideal for families with young children. The pool has a solar heating system, keeping it warm enough to swim from April to October.
The owners live in the attached farmhouse and are on hand to unobtrusively maintain and care for the pool and gardens and to assist you in any way that will make your holiday more enjoyable. Whilst Toulouse is the nearest airport, Bergerac, Carcassonne and Rodez are all within 2 hours drive.
We can offer instruction in archery and photography on site.
