Why Marianne Charpentier chose Lot

Situated in a landscape of rolling hills with fantastic views and close to well renowned market villages with colourful lively markets and good restaurants, the area is one of the best loved of France. The local attitude is relax and enjoy and it is very easy to do so in such a well appointed property where the owners have put energy and warmth into a very top market renovation where nothing is missing for your comfort. The most often heard comment coming from visitors goes along the lines of "we have never found better".

What makes this house unique

The furnishings and decoration of the two apartments is exceptional. The upper house has the full french country home feel with a kitchen so well equipped that preparing meals with the fantastic local produce is just a pleasure. The sitting room is large and luminous with huge comfortable sofas. The lower house has a stylish modern decore, streamlined and pure and an exceptional vaulted wine cellar feature.

The many terraces provide al fresco eating areas for all times of the day. The large pool side terrace is a prefered mealtime and lounging area to while away many a peaceful moment during the heat of a summer day.

Fabulous property in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to say (type) this too loudly as we'd very much like to keep this magical place to ourselves, but alas that's unlikely. We returned home a week ago from our second visit to this property and we were not disappointed. Knowing what to expect didn't mean we weren't just as excited to get there. The fact that the pool is now heated makes all the difference to our young children. The surroundings are just wonderful and we made a point of exploring some new local towns to help keep our experience fresh. Simply put, it must be hard to beat.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house which is delightful. The pictures don't do it justice. The pool and outside area are just want you need on a hot sunny day. We were with grandparents so having the split accommodation worked so well. Together but with our space. Marianne was lovely, helpful and come to our sis when needed. You do need a car as the house isn't near a walkable town but that was fine for us. In all one of our best holiday houses in France.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This place is simply stunning, the pictures really don't do it justice! We fell in love with it and weren't ready to leave at the end of our two weeks. Marianne who manages the property was really warm and welcoming on our arrival. The property is beautifully kept and extremely well appointed, it really is more of a home than a holiday let. The downstairs covered terrace and pool area are really beautiful and we spent the majority of our holiday just relaxing, swimming and eating here. The property is extremely secluded in beautiful surroundings yet only a short drive from several local towns and villages. The local night markets (particularly in Lauzerte) are a real must for a great french experience. Lots of trestle tables and chairs set up in the village square, surrounded by food & drink stalls. Live music and dancing into the night. You need to get there early to grab a table. We would love to return here another year and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property.

Lovely house and pool, perfect for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

Very nice reception by Marianne and her husband, we immediately felt at home. Nice house, actually it's two houses in one building. The upper house has a romantic interior, the lower house a very modern and stylish one. We loved the porch in front of the swimming pool. The swimming pool itself was salted, which you dit not taste but it was nice and clean. In both houses there were modern kitchens and plenty of kitchen appliances. The kids loved the 'wild' cats who belonged more or less with the house, they even discovered a nest of newborn kitties. We can recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a quiet and luxury holiday, especially families who would like to travel together. We will definitely return, if only there was a spare week to book.... :-)

Car: recommended

Situated in the heart of Quercy Blanc between three beautiful villages, Montcuq, Lauzerte & Castelnau Montratier with their colourful weekly markets, restaurants and summer events such as Nuits de Lauzerte, brocante markets, marches gourmand and many musical evenings. There's plenty to see and do in the immediate area but equally the peaceful location makes it ideal for stroll in the country or simply lazing by the pool or in the garden with a good book. Montcuq has a lake with a beach which makes a change from the pool for a refreshing swim. Cahors with it's vineyards and fine wine producers is a beautiful place to visit and is 25 minutes by car. Don't miss the cathedral in the centre and the Pont Valentre the 700 year old bridge that spans the river Lot. Moissac with it's famous cloisters is 20 minutes by car and is situated on the river Tarn. Further south you will find Montauban with it's arcaded main square and Toulouse which is a very vibrant city situated on the Garonne river which is well worth the hour drive for a day trip. Don't miss the famed indoor market recently featured in Rick Stein's TV series where he travelled through the region on the canal du midi.
