Le Chai has a dedicated off road parking space by the house, or guests can use the large parking area as shown in the aerial images.

Entering the house from the door nearest the swimming pool, you enter the spacious and light open plan Living area. This has a comfortable Sitting area arranged around a stone fireplace in which there is a woodburning stove, a large Dining table and chairs and a quality Kitchen area with a run of units. The Kitchen includes an electric hob, built in electric oven and microwave oven, large fridge with freezer compartment and a good selection of utensils.



Beyond the Kitchen is a further Sitting area with a sofa and easy chairs with full length glazed doors.  These open onto a terrace from which there is a sensational view for some twenty miles to the north across the vale of the River Lot and away to the southern hills of the Perigord.

Leading from the Sitting area, a short passage leads into a double bedroom with ensuite shower and basin. The wc is in a lobby area just outside the bedroom.

Stairs lead down from the Sitting area to the Ground floor

At the bottom of the stairs is a Double bedroom: This bedroom has a glazed door opening to the outside.  Next to this is a large family bathroom with bath & shower over, basins, and wc.



The third double bedroom is on the other side of the bathroom.

elccaveOpposite the bathroom is the original cave (wine store) with a vaulted ceiling. This area has easy seating, and opens into a second part which has two single sofa beds for additional sleeping accommodation if required.

Beside the cave is a small pantry and storage room with restricted head height - ideal for cases and other baggage that are not needed during the stay.

A door opens to the outside as seen in the main property image with a small breakfast terrace outside adjacent to the car parking area.

With underfloor heating throughout, Le Chai is designed to be comfortable throughout the year.


A short walk away is the 12m x 6m salt water swimming pool, with integral steps and poolside furniture. This pool is shared by all houses at Loubas.

Beyond the car park is a large grassed area, ideal for ball and racquet games, and the surface of the car park is also ideal for boules. Bicycles are available, and as Loubas is on the edge of a ridge, these are motorised to assist with the return journey if you decide to return by the uphill route.

Loubas is situated in very quiet and unspoiled countryside: Most of the activity in the area is agricultural, and the area is ideal for exploring on foot or by bicycle.

Some activity weeks are also run at Loubas - Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for details of activities on offer.

Around the area

Market 1As you travel around the area that borders Lot-et-Garonne and Tarn-et-Garonne you will see a very wide range of crops growing: Alongside the usual cereals, fodder crops and sunflowers you will find fruit, vegetables and nuts growing, and most of these can be found at the local markets. There will be a market somewhere near every day of the week, and details of these can be found in the Area information above.

During the summer there are also evening gourmet markets, where it is very pleasant to purchase food - either typical finger type food, or a complete dish - and enjoy eating it to the accompaniment of local music in busy surroundings.

bironHistory and natural history abound in the area: Many of the nearby villages are medieval fortified 'bastide' villages with many original buildings and features, and the views over the countryside from the villages betray Roman activity in the area with long straight roads clearly visible across the landscape. The view to the north from Loubas village looks towards the Perigord, and on clear days Chateau Biron can be seen on the skyline: This and nearby Bonaguil are two complete castles that are both open to visitors.  Closer to Loubas is the silver domed basilica at the top of Penne d'Agenais, and it is recorded that Richard I of England (The Lionheart) built fortifications here.

Also at Penne d'Agenais you will find the River Lot, and a selection of water based activities including boat hire, fishing, canoeing and more.

Further afield, the area to the north of Cahors has some amazing cave systems that can be explored, the best known being Pech Merle, and for archaeologists the world famous cave paintings at Lascaux with a 2016 visitor interpretation centre can also be visited.
moicloi1To the south the UNESCO World Heritage site of Moissac Abbey and Cloisters is a major attraction, and a visit is often combined with a visit to the rose coloured town of Montauban with its famous square.

stelsia300And for something completely different....

Across the river from Penne d'Agenais is St Sylvestre sur Lot, and on the outskirts of the town you will find Le Stelsia which has been developed into a colourful (literally!) park for all to enjoy: Entrance is free, and there are several unusual features around the carefully landscaped grounds.  A challenging crazy golf course is a great attraction, and the restaurants and bars have a reputation for excellent food - although not cheap.
