About Vieux Mirou
Vieux Mirou has been steadily developed over several years by the Perry family who after many years living on site and managing the site themselves now live nearby.
There are four accommodation units
- Maison de Ferme - Farmhouse for 10 people
- Chez Nous - Independent annexe to Maison de Ferme for 4 or 6 people
- Chez Ami - Barn conversion character gite for 5 people
- Chez Papi - Barn conversion character gite for 4 people.
Maison de Ferme and Chez Nous can be rented together
Chez Ami and Chez Papi can be rented together
As can be seen from the aerial image, there are two pools: One is private for Maison de Ferme, and the other is for the gites.
If let with Maison de Ferme, guests in Chez Nous will use the Maison de Ferme pool, but if let separately Guests in Chez Nous will share the Gites pool.
Arriving at Vieux Mirou there is a large parking area for several cars.
Entering Chez Papi from the sun terrace immediately outside the door, you will be in the Sitting and Dining area with armchairs and a dining table seating 4 people.
The stairs go to the first floor, and the Kitchen has been carefully fitted under the stairs. This comprises a straight run of units including a gas cooker, fridge with freezer compartment and microwave oven. There is also a good selection of utensils.
Beyond the kitchen is a spacious double bedroom with en suite shower room including basin and wc.
The stairs lead up to a small landing area with comfortable seating.
The second bedroom is a Twin bedroom (two single beds).
This bedroom has an ensuite shower room with basin and wc.
Bookshelves contain a selection of books, and there also some games provided.
Immediately outside the door is a sun terrace, with wisteria and roses around the edge. Tables, chairs and sunshades are provided.
A few steps away is the pool and terrace with sunloungers, sunshades, tables and chairs. The 12m x 8m pool is salt water, and there is a hard cover for security. This pool is shared by the gites: Occupants of the large farmhouse have their own private pool.
The terrace faces south and west, and with a built in charcoal barbecue available there, poolside evenings can only be very relaxed.
The gardens which the Owners have landscaped have a number of mature shrubs, and offer plenty of chance to find quiet spots in sunlight or shade.
The communal washing machine and laundry facilities are in the barn behind the gites.
Vieux Mirou is just off a road that runs between Penne d'Agenais and Montaigu de Quercy: Heading for Penne d'Agenais takes you to the banks of the River Lot and all the activities on the river such as fishing, canoeing and boat hire: Heading towards Montaigu de Quercy takes you into the heart of the rolling countryside of the Quercy with a very large range of crops and vegetables growing, alongside sunflowers, cereals and vines.
Much of the produce can be bought at markets, and there are lists of the local markets on the Area information at the top of this page, along with other restaurant recommendations and wineries. The area to the east of Penne d'Agenais and along the River Lot is the heartland of the Cahors AOC with a large number of wineries offering tastings and direct sales of the delicious red and white wines.
For something curious, head across the river at Penne d'Agenais to find La Stelsia, a colourful park where you can freely wander around the manicured parkland, and enjiy excellent food and drink in the restaurants if you wish: If you fancy a testing crazy golf course, this is the place to go!
Heading to the north on the other side of the river you will find a number of castles: Biron and Bonaguil are the most complete, and both open to visitors, and you will find other ruins as you travel.
This is the country of bastide villages - fortified hilltop villages, and within easy reach of Vieux Mirou you can wander the streets of Pujols. Lauzerte, Montaigu de Quercy, Tournon d'Agenais, Monflanquin and Villereal and marvel at the medieval timbered buildings that still survive today.
Historic Cahors is the gateway to cave country, and guests can visit a number of caves in the limestone area including Pech Merle, and a little futher away the world famous Lascaux cave paintings.
