From the surrounding pretty country side, the farmhouse is situated in a small hamlet on top of a hillside overlooking a long sweeping valley. It is ideally located to explore the area’s picturesque villages and medieval bastide towns, and no holiday in this area would be complete without a visit to the Cahors vineyards. The town of Lauzerte is noted as one of France’s pretty towns with a centralized square where local events such as historic car shows, music evenings and local festivals are often organised.
The home is situated in a large, pretty garden, with a wonderful open sided poolside barn with considerable kitchen area complete with 2 BBQ’s. A setup for perfect relaxation.
The farmhouse and adjacent barns (unused) date from the early 19th century and there are still many of the original terracotta tiles, beams and stone walls. The house has four bedrooms, 3 bath/shower rooms comfortably, sleeping 8 people.
As with many of the original farmhouses the accommodation is upstairs to the main level. From the hallway entrance it opens in to a very comfortable, large sitting/ dining area. There are cosey sofa’s and a lovely fireplace with wood burner. There is a round dining table and the room is tastefully decorated with artist’s pictures. There is Sky (Freesat) TV, a DVD player and Wi-Fi is available but neither Kingfisher or the owner are liable for any loss or interruption. Next to the dining area is a small galley kitchen with electric oven, 2 gas rings, dishwasher, fridge/ freezer and microwave.

Outside the house there are large lawns, table tennis table, box hedges and flowering shrubs.
