Up the steps and through the front door brings guests onto the main living level, and into the Dining room with a large dining table and seating for 12 people, plus a high chair.  Beside the front door is a traditional 'bolet' balcony, which with easterly and southerly aspects makes a great place for breakfast outdoors.


jsdiningImmediately adjacent is the country style kitchen with a good range of equipment and utensils including hob and oven, fridge, freezer, dishwasher and microwave. The Kitchen window especially enjoys a spectacular view across the nearby wooded valley. 


To the other side of the Dining room doors lead out to a vine covered terrace, with large table and chairs - just perfect for evening meals and to watch the sun set in the west.


At the far end of the Dining room is Bedroom 1, a Double room with ensuite bathroom  with shower and wc. There is also a second Bathroom by the bedroom with Bath, basin and wc.

Back past the Kitchen is the first of two comfortable Sitting rooms, with television and a music centre.   Stairs lead to the Lower Floor.

Two bedrooms open off the Sitting room as well, one Double room and one Twin room. Both bedrooms have double doors opening onto the ground level outside, with table and chairs to extend the bedroom facilities outside.

The Lower Floor makes a convenient separate area for four people away from the main house on the upper floors.

Upper Floor

Stairs lead up to the Upper floor which has two bedrooms, one twin and a large room with 4 single beds (see image above). A door in the latter room opens onto steps down to the front of the house. There is also a small bathroom with bath, basin and wc on this level.

Around the area

Market 1La Glaire is in a peaceful corner of this delightful part of France, and is truly 'off the beaten track': However within a few miles there are horse riding, fishing, walking, cycling and plenty more besides.

The historic medieval villages of Lauzerte, Montaigu de Quercy and Beauville are a short drive away, and all have good shopping: For everyday needs - including bread and boulangerie -  Bourg de Visa or Touffailles are about 5km up the road.

mdqmkt cheeseThe whole area is a food basket, with vineyards and orchards sitting beside nut groves and fields of vegetables including melons: Many of these, and other local products are available at local markets which are held nearby on most days of the week.

The nearest large cities are Toulouse, with strong links to the aerospace trade and renowned for its restaurants, or Bordeaux, the world capital of the wine trade, with amazing architecture. Moissac, with world famous abbey and cloisters and Montauban, a rose coloured town with amazing buildings are about 30km away from La Glaire.
Castle visits can be made where the Quercy and Perigord regions meet to the north of the River Lot, Biron and Bonaguil being the most complete and spectacular.

For a day at the beach there are water parks at Montcuq and Montaigu de Quercy with pedaloes, safe swimming, bars and restaurants at both places.
