Together they offer a large or extended family a place to enjoy time together and include a large sitting room for the whole family to gather indoors if required. 

    Facilities include an extremely large hall or sitting room to accommodate all guests indoors if required, and outdoor furniture as well. 

    Each house can sleep up to 8 people

  • (note - La Grange is available separately in May, June, early July and September with the pool)

    Arriving at Maisons d'Avoine, there are off-road parking spaces for several cars. 

    LA GRANGE - 8 people in 4 bedrooms (ref 41GAV)
    Through the main door, there are steps leading down to the KITCHEN and UTILITY ROOM 

    The spacious kitchen has an external door a few steps from the pool terrace (On the right in the picture above), so ideal for preparing al fresco meals. There is also a large square dining table with benches around that will seat more than 8 people if required. 

    Imaginative use of space for the main kitchen range incorporates Oven and separate hob, microwave, kettle, coffee maker and toaster, and another adjacent run of fitted units including a dishwasher.  Yet more cupboards offer ample storage, and there is a large fridge/freezer. 

    The Utility Room has ample storage space for all cleaning tools and also houses a Washing Machine. 

    Back up the stairs past the Main door, the steps open out into the impressive HALL /SITTING ROOM with a large fireplace at one end, and a selection of sofas and armchairs to seat the full party.  There is also a BILLIARD TABLE and a piano. 

    A short flight of steps lead up to a mezzanine area with a screened BEDROOM 4 with a double and single bed and a BATHROOM off. 

    The BEDROOMS occupy a separate wing off the Hall, all with interconnecting doors, but also all with exterior doors

    BEDROOM 1 - Double bed
    BEDROOM 2 - Double bed
    BEDROOM 3 - Twin Bedroom. 

    Between Bedrooms 1 & 2 is the BATHROOM with Bath, WC and basin. 

    'LA MAISON VIELLE'  - Maximum 8 People in 4 bedrooms (ref 42VAV)
    (note La Maison Vielle is available all the year round) 

    The main entrance to La Maison Vielle is off the large south-facing sun terrace which overlooks fields and woodland. 

    It leads into the spacious and well-equipped KITCHEN.  This includes a Hob and Oven, Microwave oven, Dishwasher, large Fridge Freezer and a good selection of appliances and utensils. A good-sized kitchen table seats 8 people.

    There is also a Washing Machine and Tumble dryer.  

    A short flight of stairs leads up to the comfortable SITTING ROOM with fireplace and TELEVISION with DVD Player. 

    Off the Sitting Room are the BEDROOM SUITE with BEDROOM 1 an imposing Double bedroom with south-facing windows, and door into the en suite BATHROOM with bath and basin.  The separate BEDROOM 2 has a single bed. Both have access to the separate WC. 

    Returning to the Sitting Room, stairs lead up to further bedrooms. 

    BEDROOM 3 is a spacious double bedroom. 

    BEDROOM 4 is a SUITE FAMILIALE with a small play area off which is a BATHROOM with a shower, WC and basin.  The Bedroom (with a beam in the centre) has a Double bed and three Single beds.  

  • Both houses have terraces outside the entrances, and the garden has a pleasant southerly aspect overlooking fields and woodland. Each house has a charcoal barbeque. 

    The SWIMMING POOL measures 5x10m with integral steps, and loungers and parasols are supplied. (nb the pool is fenced and gated - these pictures were taken when the fence was being refurbished) 

    The garden has a good selection of trees and shrubs for shade, and the entrance to La Grange is a pleasant au vent shelter. 

    A large dining table with chairs is provided for large outdoor gatherings. 

    A table tennis table is provided (note Guests should provide their own bats and balls) 

  • Les Maisons d'Avoine is in a tiny off-road hamlet about 8km from Montaigu de Quercy and Roquecor. Quiet roads and countryside make for excellent cycling and walking expeditions. 

    The countryside has a great selection of historic attractions, with several medieval hilltop villages nearby, and the UNESCO World Heritage site at Moissac where the Abbey of St Peter and its cloisters have been carefully renovated. 

    This area of France is renowned for the production of quality fruit, vegetables and other foods, and beside the usual sunflower and cereal crops, you will find nuts, melons, apples, pears, plums, apricots and field scale vegetables being grown. Many of these find their way to the weekly markets held in towns nearby on every day of the week, or to the evening Marchés Gourmands held in the summer months when all come to town to congregate and eat and enjoy entertainment. A full list of markets can be found in the Area information. 

    The River Lot provides plenty of opportunity for water-based activities with fishing, canoeing, boat trips and more available.  To the north of the river Lot the hills of the Péroigord Noir rise, with castles such as Biron to explore. 

    This part of the River Lot is home to the Cahors AOC wine producing region, with many wineries open for tasting and direct purchase: The Vallée du Lot et Vignoble website has much information on this.

    There are tennis courts for hire at Montaigu de Quercy, and there is also a water park 'Montaigu Plage' with a beach area and lifeguard patrolled swimming available. Boats, pedalos and a tennis court are also available there. 

    However, many will prefer to enjoy the peace of the countryside and relax by the pool and in the shade at Les Maisons d'Avoine......
