Overview

About the property

Peaceful rural location, great views, local river sports

Grange de Rey is a beautiful, newly-renovated barn, dating back 200 years and set in breathtaking countryside in the heart of rural France. It has been sympathetically restored so that much of the old charm has been retained and it is situated in open countryside with a working farm nearby. A 15 minute drive brings you to the medieval market town of Figeac. The barn is situated on a hillside and has stunning views to the south west. Local activities include canoeing, golf, walking, cycling, horse riding, sightseeing, water park, caves, chateau’s, farmers markets and great selection of food!

The barn has everything you would expect from a comfortable family home and is beautifully appointed, it has many amenities including flat-screen TV, satellite receiver, DVD player, DVD library for kids, games, books, a pool and a barbeque.

The primary feature on the first floor is the large communal living, dining and kitchen area with cathedral ceilings revealing the original oak beams and stone work. The communal living area has a large picture window which opens via French doors onto a raised terrace with its “abri du jardin” – a 9m by 5m in area - providing relaxing outdoor living during your holiday stay. The abri is a popular addition to many properties in the area and is effectively a conservatory where the glass windows are replaced with patio screen, excluding flying insects and allowing for alfresco dining with extensive views over the surrounding countryside. In summer, the abri becomes an open-air extension to the living room and the effect is to create substantial space in which to enjoy your holiday.

Two double bedrooms each with storage space and twin beds. In each of these bedrooms one of the twin beds has a separate pull-out bed and mattress..

On the ground floor ... Bedroom 1 - has a king size bed with wardrobe and drawer set and adjoining is an en-suite bathroom with a bath/shower, sink and toilet. It also has an external door opening onto the terrace by the pool.

Bedroom 2 - has a king size bed with wardrobe and drawer set and adjoining is an en-suite bathroom with a shower, sink and toilet. It also has an external door opening onto the terrace by the pool.

Bedroom 3 - has two single beds that can be pushed together, if required, to make a double. Whilst smaller than the other two ground floor bedrooms, bedroom 3 has a built-in wardrobe with a set of drawers.

A family bathroom with bath/shower, sink and toilet is located on the ground floor among with a utility room, complete with washing machine.

Linen and towels are provided.

Grange de Rey has a gated entrance, a large garden (4000 sq metres) and ample space for parking cars. At the top of the garden are is space ideal for ball games and there is plenty of space in the garden for children to play safely.

The 4.6m diameter pool is visible from the terrace which is in full sunshine throughout the day. Sun loungers are provided. It is an above-ground pool which is surrounded at water level by a raised area of wooden decking with fence and lockable gate providing security when not in use. The pool is 1 meter deep and is cleaned and tested regularly to ensure water quality.

Reyrevignes is within the ‘Parc Naturel Regional des Causses du Quercy’, an area designated for its outstanding natural beauty. The village has a bakery producing fresh bread daily. The larger villages of Livernon and Assier (and its famous Chateau dating back to the 16th century) are both just 4.5km away, both have bars/restaurants as well as bakeries, butchers and convenience stores. Nearby Figeac is just 15 minutes drive away with a range of shops and supermarkets.

Figeac has a wonderful farmer’s market every Saturday centred in the market square. The town is situated on the River Cele which joins the river Lot at the beautiful and famous village of St Cirq Lapopie.

The nearby river Lot is a great attraction for water-based activities and very popular in summer for canoeing, boat trips and fishing. This sparsely populated area also has some fantastic walks without encountering armies of tourists. Reyrevignes has a public tennis court available for hire for a small charge.

Local activities include canoeing on the Célé, the Lot and the Tarn rivers, There are many beautiful nearby villages and market towns including the cliff-side towns of Rocamadour, St Cirq Lapopie, Cordes sur Ciel and Najac.

The Lot is proud of its fine, local produce from truffles to confit of duck & goose, to dark red Cahor wines and the goat's cheese of Rocamadour. Very close to Grange de Rey are many good restaurants and all are worth a visit. The owners’ recommendations are listed in the house with contact details.

Grange de Rey is conveniently reached from the new A20 motorway that runs down the heart of France from south of Paris to Toulouse. From junction 56 of the motorway, a new link road connects the motorway Reyrevignes and on to the town of Figeac

Très agréable séjour au calme avec de magnifiques visites, les propriétaires sont super sympas

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 4 couples avec 3 enfants, maison très agréable à vivre.

Les propriétaires, David et Nancy sont des gens charmants, serviables et de bons conseils!!!!

La maison est idéalement située, proche de Figeac (10 min), et à 30 min de Rocamadour. De très belles visites à faire.

La maison se trouve très proches d'une ferme et donc entourée de moutons et agneaux, les enfants adorent!!!!

La maison est spacieuse, avec piscine très bien entretenue. La véranda est dotée de moustiquaires ce qui rend les soirées agréables!!!!

Owner's Response: Simon and Caroline with their friends, their children and their relatives from Normandie enjoyed their one-week of holiday at Grange de Rey and for the benefit of future English-speaking guests, this was their feedback …. We were 4 couples with 3 children, very nice home to live in.. The owners, David and Nancy are lovely, helpful and gave us good advice! The house is ideally located, close to Figeac (10 min), and 30 min from Rocamadour. Very pleasant places to visit.. The house is very close to a farm and therefore surrounded by sheep and lambs, the kids absolutely loved it !!!! The veranda is equipped with mosquito nets which makes the evenings pleasant indeed. Wonderful people who were thrilled with their choice of holiday home. We especially enjoyed the company of their children whom we escorted to visits to our neighbour's farm and introduced them to their farm animals.

The barn is located within the Parc Regionale Causses du Quercy which is a protected as an area of outstanding beauty by the French authorities. There are over 250 sites of historical interest and many of the villages have been designated as "One of the most beautiful villages in France". The Lot and Cele rivers are nearby and this region benefits from being relatively undeveloped with respect to tourism when compared to holidaying at the coast or in the Dordogne valley which is only 40kms away. Of particular interest is the very low level of atmospheric industrial pollution in this area giving rise to a night sky teeming with stars and a sight our visitors will never forget.
