About MHOR in France
Rob and I came from Balquhidder in Perthshire, Scotland, to France for the better weather. The farming in Scotland is now left to our children. We are both gregarious and love welcoming people to our cottage to enjoy the relaxed, French way of life. With the medieval villages and excellent restaurants, the area is certainly one of the most beautiful parts of France.

A haven of peace
We had a wonderful stay in Jean & Rob’s beautiful farmhouse. It’s location is incredibly peaceful and yet just a short drive from many idyllic villages (we particularly loved Cordes sur Ciel and Najac, both so beautiful).
We arrived to a cake that Jean had baked that was probably the nicest cake we have ever eaten and also found a home grown marrow (or possibly giant courgette?!) on our doorstep one day which was delicious.
We would thoroughly recommend this to anyone considering staying. We miss the birdsong and stars.
Thanks Jean & Rob for a wonderful holiday.
Rob & Karen & Alfie the dog (who loved it as much as we did- we had trouble getting him in the car to leave).
Thank you for your very lovely comments, we really enjoyed meeting you and would have liked to invite you over, sorry we were so busy!
Very best wishes
Rob and Jean
Superb cottage in quiet location
We had a wonderful time staying here. The cottage is superbly appointed, has everything you need. Very peaceful location, owners are nearby, but never intrusive - although we enjoyed their company and hospitality. Would thoroughly recommend staying here. The area is very rural - like a trip back in time !
We hope to come back...
Absolutely Blooming Marvellous
We stayed for a week. This is a wonderful location to tour this lovely area. The gite is perfectly formed with a fabulous wet room off the bedroom. The ambience is du calme. Rob & Jean are wonderful hosts. Our dog Winnie particularly enjoyed her stay. We have already booked a return visit. Don't hesitate to book.
We wanted a small place from which to visit friends and places we know and it was just perfect. Jean and Rob were so friendly and welcoming, there if you needed anything but discreet and in the background. We had a really lovely week with everything we desired. Lovely people.
Nous cherchions un endroit paisible pour y passer des vacances de tout repos ... et c’était encore mieux qu’idéal de les passer là bas. Jean et Robert les propriétaires sont vraiment attentionnés et discrets. Que du bonheur... vraiment. Merci encore pour ces deux semaines de paradis.

The village is charming: the many styles of ancient buildings, the varied materials (limestone, oak timbers and old brick), the narrow streets trapping the sky, flowers everywhere, the locals and visitors alike enjoying the shade.
