Maison Grange is suitable for families or groups travelling together, and the central position of Montaigu de Quercy is an ideal base to explore the southern Quercy area.
Located on a peaceful street in the historic bastide village of Montaigu de Quercy, the gentle pace of French village life is literally on your doorstep, and this includes a short walk to the local boulangerie for the freshest and most delicious bread and croissants. The village also has a good selection of amenities including several restaurants and bars all within walking distance, tennis courts and a water park with beach area, bars and other activities. All this is complemented by an active programme of events and an excellent and busy market every Saturday.
The flexible accommodation is suitable for all parties up to 6, with the option to use the ground floor as a self contained flat for 2, making Maison Grange an ideal choice for a '4+2' party. Two sitting rooms, both with televisions, can be a great feature for families.
For larger parties of up to 16, Maison Grange can be let with 27MQE Maison Quemere.
The Owners say...
"Forget all those arguments about who's driving to get the croissants or back from dinner! The house is calm yet everything is on the doorstep; baker, butcher, supermarket, newsagent, nice restaurants, café bars, markets and summer events."
Entering Maison Grange through the street door, you are on the Upper Floor, and in the spacious Kitchen /Living area which has a high vaulted ceiling.
The Kitchen has a well equipped run of fitted kitchen units includes an electric hob and oven with extractor over, microwave oven and dishwasher. A large Dining table sits up to 8 people comfortably.
The Sitting area has two large comfortable sofas, and satellite Television.
Entrances to the bedrooms on this level are off this room:
A Double bedroom, including an ensuite Shower with basin and wc.
A Twin Bedroom with views over the garden and pool. Opposite the Twin Bedroom is the Bathroom, with basin and wc.
A mezzanine area with a futon is up some steps from the Sitting area, making a pleasant separate quiet place if required.
Stairs down from the Sitting area lead to the Ground Floor, where the first room at the bottom of the stairs is a Utility room with Washing machine, Tumble drier and ironing facilities.
The Ground Floor can become a self contained apartment for two people (and available to let as this in Mid and Low seasons)

A small flight of steps takes you down to the lower floor Kitchen, with a small run of fitted units equipped with Hob and Oven, Microwave, Dishwasher and Fridge/freezer. This Kitchen is conveniently situated by the Outside door onto the Pool Terrace and Garden, making this the ideal place to prepare meals to be eaten outdoors.
Off the Sitting Area is the King Size ensuite Double bedroom, with Shower room, basin and wc. The ensuite has 'Jack and Jill' doors, making it accessible for anyone coming in from the Garden and Pool during the day.
The door from the Ground level Kitchen opens onto the Pool terrace, as seen in the main image at the top of the page. Beside this is a raised sun terrace area, which also gets some shade from nearby trees. The pool terrace also has a changing room with showers and toilets.
Measuring 8 x 4m, the Swimming Pool is protected by an alarm, and there are Roman steps for ease of access Water purity is maintained by salt.
The long narrow garden is mainly grassed, with flowers and shrubs planted which make the garden a very attractive feature. A small paved path leads to a shaded dining area. A Charcoal barbeque is supplied for outdoor cooking.

Montaigu de Quercy is a lively village, with all the amenities required, including a supermarket and a number of restaurants. There is also an excellent boulangerie within walking distance of Maison Grange. Two of the larger regional roads meet at the village, so travel to other towns and villages is easy and direct to start with. There is a Tourist Information office just off the roundabout where the two roads meet.
As a medieval bastide settlement, at the top of the hill there is a fortified medieval village, with streets of timbered houses leading to a square, and tremendous views from the fortifications across the glorious countryside beyond. Other similar villages in the area are Penne d'Agenais, Tournon d'Agenais and Lauzerte, which is listed in the 'Plus Beaux Villages de France'
Other history abounds, with Roman activity at Cahors and Villeneuve sur Lot, and as you travel the area you will be sure to marvel at the landscapes that unfold, with usually a bastide village or a large chateau in view.
Montaigu de Quercy has its own water park, based on a lake just outside the village where there is a large sandy beach area with lifeguard patrolled (in season) safe swimming, boat and pedalo hire, zip wires across the lake, bars and a restaurant.
The town is in the centre of an area of food production with a range of products to be seen as you travel around: Soft Fruit, sunflowers, nuts and vegetables will be seen growing along with vineyards and more traditional farm crops. Many of these, both raw and prepared, and other artisan products are available at the weekly markets held in most large villages and towns every week: Montaigu de Quercy has its market on a Saturday, as does Lauzerte. Tournon d'Agenais is on Friday evening, and Penne d'Agenais on a Sunday (at Port Penne, by the bridge over the river) A fuller list of markets is found under The Area at the top of this page.
There are several good restaurants in and around Montaigu de Quercy, and generally offer good food at excellent prices. Some are linked to in the Links page on the top menu.
The area has several wineries, mainly to the north towards the River Lot, part of the Cahors AOC, and many wineries are open for tastings and direct sales: Please see the Lot Valley tourist information site link on the Links page for a full list.
