Couyoula is situated at the end of its own lane in grounds of 4 acres that enjoy total privacy and uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside. There is a stunning 12x5m heated pool with electric cover and underwater lighting. There is also a floodlit boules pitch set in an ivy clad open barn. The house is centrally heated and offers luxury modern living whilst retaining the original character stone and oak beam features. The ground level is tiled in stone (with underfloor heating) and upper levels are finished in solid oak. All 4 bedrooms are large and all have full en-suite facilities. With a view to families sharing, the second double bedroom is of the same high quality as the master suite. The 30ft kitchen features a 12ft oak dining table and leads directly out onto a covered dining area. Conveniently situated only 10 minutes from the small bastide town of Caylus and an easy drive to the beautiful towns of St Antonin Noble Val, Najac, St Cirq Lapopie and Cordes Sur Ciel.

An excellent large property in a peaceful rural location
The house is a holiday rarity with two double and two twin bedrooms, each with its own shower and toilet. There are two TVs if needed and a well equipped kitchen - two fridges and a freezer, microwave, dishwasher, double sink, plenty of pots and pans as well as consumables.
The English owner is very communicative and the English couple (Angela and Ron) who look after the house are friendly and helpful. The toaster, a rarity in French houses, died on us but a quick text to Angela and it was replaced in a couple of days.
Another English person looks after the large swimming pool.
We wanted a quiet location and the house certainly met the spec. Sitting on the terrace watching the southern 'star rise' was great.
Being this rural means a drive to the bakery - Parisot or Caylus - but they aren't far and I enjoyed the trip.
I have no hesitation in saying that of all the French holiday homes we have had over the last thirty years this is one of the best.
My only word of caution is that the property is multi-level, with the kitchen/diner on 1st floor so there is a bit of stair climbing to take into account.
Thanks for the kind review and really happy Couyoula ranks so highly in your ratings. Angela and Ron do a fantastic job and have been involved in looking after the house since we bought it back in 2005.
It's an excellent villa. Fantastic week
Thanks Jason. I’m glad you enjoyed your stay.
This is a first class property with all amenities provided. Very quiet location, but a good number of attractive towns within easy distance. Many of them having good markets which makes them lively and interesting to visit. Many very good restaurants in easy distance, but not walkable. The house has a good boule piste as well as a lovely swimming pool and other garden games available. The property is set in a very large plot and both house and grounds are very well maintained. We had a very relaxing time and would readily return in the future.
Agréable séjour dans un cadre très tranquille
Nous avons passé une semaine à 8 (4 adultes et 4 enfants) dans cette charmante propriété. La maison est très spacieuse et tout le confort est à disposition.
Nous avons profité également des extérieurs avec une grande piscine chauffée, le terrain de boules et les différentes terrasses.
La maison est isolée et il faudra prendre la voiture durant 15 ou 20 minutes pour retrouver un peu de civilisation...
Le bilan de ce séjour est très positif et nous recommandons fortement cette location.
Merci à Pete.
Merci Sébastien. Content que vous ayez apprécié vos vacances à Couyoula.
