… and the manor now offers grand accommodation for the perfect holiday. Standing within its large grounds, it is an ideal choice to enjoy and relax in the privacy without intrusion of neighbors nearby. The tree-lined driveway leads up to a large parking area facing the magnificent front entrance of the house.
At the rear side of the property one can indulge in a refreshing plunge in the large 12m x 6m swimming pool whilst overlooking the rolling countryside or simply relax with a glass of wine in one of the shaded areas in the surrounding garden.
This grand property offers an ideal get away from all the commitments; it is located in an area revealing many picturesque villages and medieval bastide towns, such as Tournon d’Agenais, Pujols and Penne d’Agenais, all steeped in history and displaying far reaching views.
Many of the numerous Cahors wine producers of this area are less than a 10-minute drive away and you can sample these renowned French wines ‘sur place’ at their vineyards.
Although it is possible to access the property by the front grand staircase it is more practical through the side door which opens into a large modern country kitchen and dining area.

La Rabiole is a very large property, set in stunning grounds with beautiful views and a gorgeous back drop of the French countryside. We had more than enough room and the outside area with the pool and poolside is idyllic! The children (and grownups) spent most of the days in the large lovely pool and it has everything you need in terms of bbq, outside furniture etc. The house was well equipped and boasts a lovely large family kitchen and more than enough bathrooms! It’s a very attractive property! Could have perhaps done with a slightly more clean before we arrived and we did have a problem keeping the large amounts of crickets in the house at bay!! However, we would certainly recommend this impressive property and will definitely be visiting again! Very impressed with all the booking and organisation of the holiday rental! Certainly could not fault that at all!
Thank you! Mrs L,F. Colechester
Great location! The house is superb, very quiet, huge swimming pool, all home needed facilities available. We recommend this location for who wants to have a relaxing time. Cahors (main big city) is about half an hour driving. You have a lot of other small villages around to get the daily needs (bread, wine, supermarket…) and don’t forget to visit the Sunday or Thursday local market in Montcuq, absolutely awesome (typical village, lot of local producers, only quality food!).

Our two weeks at La Rabiole were wonderful. The house is fantastic and provide ample space for the family. The views from the property are amazing – if you are looking for privacy then this is the perfect property. We loved every minute there and would return in a heartbeat. Mr & Mrs E.A, Woldingham.
