The
Experience

In a commanding position, with all-round panoramas of truffle-and-walnut country, is an imposing 18th-century farmhouse manor converted to meet the needs of weary urbanites on leave. A gorgeous first impression: the pillared gates lead to parkland and a young orchard, well-trimmed lawns and wide aprons of gravel; the only sounds come from chirruping birds and grazing cattle. Up 13 stone steps: enter the hall, to honey coloured floorboards scattered with cosy rugs, three sitting rooms to suit a big party’s needs (TVs, log-burner, a full-sized billiards table, music and books), a velvet chesterfield, a white chandelier – gorgeous! For chefs: a flagstone kitchen with a five-burner hob, a wine-chiller in a marble ‘island’, a chunky pine table that seats 14… there’s a splendid dining room, too. Bedrooms are crisp, light, uncluttered, with antique wardrobes and heavenly, wonky, sand-blasted beams; bathrooms are perfect. Outside: babyfoot and ping-pong in the games room, a pristine pool with suave loungers, and a bright summer kitchen better than any we’ve seen. Beyond are lush fields, woodland and those long views…

Location

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Catherine Walker

  • Louille is just a ten minute rural stroll from the heart of Thezac which is a feast to the eye with its floral displays and pretty church. The village's new bistro also has a 'depot de pain'; very handy for that essential daily croissant run.
  • Everyday, somewhere nearby, there is at least one traditional market in full swing. Many are held in the squares of the local medieval hill towns. Night markets flourish in the Summer months, offering lively entertaiment and local cuisine.
  • Thezac is on the pilgrims' route to Santiago de Compostela ; the area boasts many well sign posted walking trails. There is quite a range of bikes at Louille; cyclists of all ages can take advantage of the very quite roads to explore...
  • There are at least three vineyards within walking distance of Louille; lots of scope for wine tasting on foot or, to go further afield, on a guided tour in a carriage and pair.
  • Our young guests love the 'beach resort' on the lake at nearby Montaigue-de-Quercy as do their parents. The natural swimming lake and outdoor activity centre at Parc en Ciel is well worth a visit too.
  • Louille is a bird watcher's paradise. Birds of prey hover over the distant fields, owls hoot from the barn, cheeky sparrows play around the olive trees. Summer brings swifts, swallows, nightingales, hoopoes, bee eaters, golden oriels, and more to the area
