The property enjoys a lovely, rural location, yet is within easy reach of the many amenities in the delightful town of Montcuq. Highlights of the property for us were the light and airy master bedroom, the comfortable sitting room, the excellent pool area and loungers with peaceful, countryside views, and the well maintained garden. La Tuque suited us very well and was an excellent base from which to explore the varied Quercy region. After a visit to an interesting chateau, bastide town or local market, there was nothing better than to relax in and around the warm, salt water pool and enjoy a sun-downer or two on the terrace! Mr M,S. Taunton
La Tuque is a beautiful property in a peaceful, private location, although only a short drive from the pretty, historical town of Montcuq. The house is comfortable and very well equipped, including games and activities for all ages. The pool is every bit as good as it looks in the pictures! We had a very relaxing and enjoyable week here with our children (10 and 6). Mrs McD. London
We really enjoyed both our weeks (La Tuque and La Roc- LaPalue). The booking process is straightforward with a very personal touch and the descriptions / photos fitted the properties well.
Both La Tuque and Le Roc are very well equipped. We especially loved the salt water pool at La Tuque and the views and coffee machine at Le Roc! Having a brief history of the house at Le Roc is appreciated.
Both Linda and John were lovely and helpful house managers. A big thank you to owners and support staff, including yourself! Mrs S,R.London
It is a very nice house. Near by Montcuq, so it is easy to do shopping and still it is a very private location! Mr N.B . Abcoude,The Netherlands
Very nice Gite in a beautiful area of France, rooms a good size ,salt water pool fantastic.
Montcuq village nearby which has good cafe’s and restaurants ,plus a really good Carrefour supermarket and petrol station.
Linda the house manager is a real asset ,she is very knowledgeable and efficient. Mr & Mrs G, Bridgend
Tranquil, great situation being isolated yet within easy distance of Montcuq, with Sunday market and supermarket all the week. The pool is so lovely with plenty of space around, and the mature tree and shrubs in the garden make it a great place to relax. We didn’t travel far afield but found some very pleasant walks. I would certainly recommend La Tuque for anyone wanting a restful, comfortable holiday. Linda was great! Mrs S,R. Penzance
La Tuque is a great place to stay, it Is a warm and welcoming place and it’s really cosy. We loved to spend our evenings at the covered terrace, where even with rain one can enjoy the outdoors. Montcuq is a charming village and La Tuque is great place to explore the wonderful Quercy region. The pool is a real joy for everyone and we also enjoyed the barbecue terrace with friends and family. It’s a house we would really like to come back to! Mr N.B Abcoude, The Netherlands
We had a lovely time at La Tuque. It was an ideal house for us and we all felt very much at home. Everything about it was perfect….even the weather was better than it might have been. We all left hoping to return and maybe that will come true. Best wishes, David
We had a wonderful time at La Tuque. The property was stunning as was the area, and the Vet you recommended was brilliant. We enjoyed many long walks in and around Montcuq – especially walking up to the Chateau at the top of our lane – stunning. All in all a great holiday and yes we will be back again. Thanks for a great holiday. Miss A C., Warwickshire
We had a wonderful time at La Tuque, with great weather too. It’s a lovely villa, and I’m sure we’ll be booking with you again. Mr Drover
We had an extremely good holiday and it was very hard to leave La Tuque after the two weeks. We got back to Mauritius this Tuesday and it is hard to get back into things. We are already thinking about another holiday at La Tuque. Linda (the Manager) was really nice and friendly. Many thanks for the good and professional services. Kind regards, Mrs B.R-L., Mauritius
