This old farmhouse has been converted into a comfortable and airy home with a light-filled sitting-room and space for everyone to spread out. Set within nine acres of garden, orchard and woodland, you might even see deer, red squirrels and hares about.
Let yourself in and settle in with a bottle of wine; if you’re arriving late, ask your hosts about having some food shopping waiting for you. The kitchen is very well equipped and spacious enough for a couple of cooks – it leads onto the terrace where you can take in the stunning valley views whilst you dine. On the other side of the house, you’ll find another covered terrace, the large pool and a games room with ping pong and mini football.
Detailed suggestions are left of where to eat and what to do during your stay. Although it feels very peaceful and remote here, the nearest restaurant is a five-minute drive away in Castelnau-Montratier. Explore pretty bastide villages and fortified castles nearby; kayak on the Lot and Aveyron rivers when you’re feeling adventurous.
