Les Volets Bleus, Cruzels sits on the edge of the peaceful and picturesque village of Touffailles, nestling into the hillside with panoramique views of the verdant, valley below. There is a village shop…

...and bakery (for those breakfast croissants), within an easy walking distance and the excellent village tennis court is freely available for the use of tenants, as is the adjacent children’s playground. An excellent choice for those wanting peace and quiet, whilst enjoying the amenities of this small village. Touffailles is within 15minutes drive of the attractive bastide town of Lauzerte with its shops, supermarket, restaurants and regular musical events. 15 minutes in the other direction is the market town of Montaigu de Quercy with its popular leisure area, comprising a swimming lake with man-made beach, pedalos, lakeside café etc. The Saturday morning market at Montaigu de Quercy is equally as popular with locals as tourists. In the nearby village of Miramont de Quercy (6km) there is a restaurant serving good regional dishes. A path leads up from Cruzels into the oak woodland behind the property and there are up to 20km of marked footpaths and circuits in the immediate area. Also worth a visit, is the 15th century church of St. Cristophe  with its remarkable frescos, on the opposite side of the valley.

Turning left off the village road and climbing a country lane brings you to the pretty “Les Volets Bleus”. The reason for the naming of this property with its blue shutters is immediately apparent. Parking is possible immediately in front of the property. Entry is into a small hallway with a door off to the right into a comfortable bedroom with a king sized bed. Ahead is a spacious shower room with wash hand basin. The washing machine is also in this area. A separate WC leads off the shower room, as does the second bedroom with twin beds, wardrobe and chest of drawers.

A spiral staircase from the hallway climbs up to a comfortably furnished living/dining area, with dining table sitting 6 and a sofa bed. British Sky (Freesat) TV, DVD, CD and internet Wi-Fi are all available. There is a wood burning stove which keeps the room wonderfully cosy for out of season lettings. There are wonderful views of the valley on one side and views over the terrace from the other. The well equipped kitchen has a gas cooker, a microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee maker and toaster.French doors open out and a few steps lead down to a sunny terrace with table a chairs and wonderful views.

A driveway to the main house where the owners live and where there is also another gite (sleeping 2 and also available for rental on this site), passes to the right in front of the parking area. Access to the swimming pool area is either along this driveway and down steps or by private access through a gate below “Les Volets Bleus”. The alarmed, salt treated, infinity pool is set into a terrace with a large covered area which includes a BBQ, fridge, toilet, sauna, hot shower, table, comfortable seating area and sun loungers. For the children in all of us, there are inflatable toys, floating basket ball net and a sand pit. In the garden below the pool there is a table tennis table, badminton net and football goal. Three adult bikes are available for use and others can be hired from Montaigu de Quercy.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the grounds. Linen and adult dressing gowns included. Transport to and from local restaurants, or cycle destinations, can be arranged at small additional cost. Baby bath and high chair can be provided on request.
