…and wooded land in rolling rural countryside in the Tarn et Garonne department. The home has been restored maintaining its French farmhouse character but incorporating tasteful high quality furnishings and comforts.
The home is 2 kms away from the small village of Touffailles which has a boulangerie and tennis courts. The market town of Montaigu de Quercy is about 10 minutes away with shops and a leisure lake. Other interesting towns nearby are Lauzerte, which is a medieval bastide town with wonderful views and some nice restaurants and the town of Moissac, set on the banks of the Tarn river with lively weekend markets, and is of great architectural interest having a Romanesque abbey and cloisters.
The approach to the home is by a long tree lined driveway, with large grassed areas for children to play games. The home has good sized, sunny rooms with 4 Bedrooms (maximum of 6 Adults and 2 Children), 2 Bathrooms, 2 shower rooms, 4 WCs and a swimming pool. At the entrance of the house is a large partially covered terrace area, excellent for outside dining as it is overlooking the garden and swimming pool area.
The main entrance to the house leads in to a cloakroom/utility room with a washing machine, WC and basin. The country kitchen/dining room has bespoke made units and is very well equipped with everything one needs: a gas hob, electric oven, dishwasher, fridge/ freezer, coffee machine, microwave, toaster, food mixers and all the kitchen utensils.
To the right of the entrance hall is a charming sitting room, with comfortable sofas and a stone fireplace. There is Sky (Freesat) TV, CD and DVD player and there is WiFi available.

Having rented many holiday homes in France over the past 25-30 years, some good & some bad, it is always with some apprehension that we arrive at a different one- so it was a great relief to arrive at Bededayne
(Maison Touffailles) & found everything so lovely -and clean!! (very important).
On first explore of the house we were delighted by everything and impressed by the large selection of “welcome” groceries supplies-we didn’t need to have stopped at the Intermarche on the way here.
It’s a very comfortable house-and in such peaceful surroundings. Annie Randall is a lovely person-and very helpful. You owners are lucky to have her as your caretaker.
If & when we come again- & we have enjoyed the Quercy region & the many interesting villages, beautiful countryside in Autumn- can you please supply a toilet roll holder in the master bedroom- & somewhere in the shower to put shampoo etc instead of on the floor. Otherwise everything has been thought of & the house is very well equipped. Plentiful towels- plentiful coat hangers(!!!very unusual) & everything in the kitchen of course -as has been remarked on by other visitors- appliances that work well.
Also a delightful place to sit outside on the terrace- even in October- with coffee or cocktails. Bobby & Gwyn Williams October 2018
