On the edge of a very quiet off-road hamlet near Montaigu de Quercy, La Maison Vielle is a traditional Quercy stone farmhouse that has been carefully modernised, but still oozes character and French charm.
A good farmhouse kitchen and a sitting room with fireplace are complemented by 3 bedrooms, including a 'suite familiale'.
A large garden offers plenty of places for sun and shade alike, and the pool is exclusive to guests at La Maison Vielle unless the let includes La Grange d'Avoine (41GAV)
From the south-facing patio with barbecue, enter the KITCHEN
The spacious farmhouse kitchen/diner has a good run of workspace with storage space under, a large fridge/freezer, microwave and a good range of utensils. There is a gas hob and electric oven.
A large dining table easily seats 8 people.
Steps up lead to the SITTING ROOM with open fire and a separate door to an outdoor Bolet Terrace and steps down to ground level.
There is a television and a music centre available for guests to enjoy.
On this level are TWO BEDROOMS laid out as a separate suite with their own bathroom. Bedrooms are a Double and a Single.
Stairs up from the Sitting room lead to:
- Spacious DOUBLE BEDROOM- with some restricted head height
- SUITE FAMILIALE - a large 'dortoir' style bedroom with attached bathroom including a double bed and 3 single beds.
There is also a play area incorporated into this suite.
La Maison Vielle has a south-facing suntrap patio outside the Kitchen door including a charcoal barbecue.
This leads into the spacious garden with trees for shade overlooking fields and woodland.
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)
There are also shaded areas around the other building on-site, La Grange but this will not be accessible to guests renting only La Maison Vielle, and will not be let separately.
A large dining table with chairs is provided for outdoor gatherings.
A table tennis table is provided (note Guests should provide their own bats and balls)
La Maison Vielle 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 nearby, 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 besides 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 pictured above 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 and pedalos 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 La Maison Vieille......
