  • Le Pouch is a traditional Quercy stone house situated in a quiet off road hamlet near Roquecor, Tarn-et-Garonne. 

    With accommodation for up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms there is ample space either for a family, or for couples wanting a larger property. 

    An exclusive pool, 11m x 5m, set in around 0.4 ha (1 acre) of garden with trees and shrubs makes Le Pouch an ideal location for a relaxing summer break. 

    Although in a quiet country situation, Roquecor, Montaigu de Quercy and Bourg de Visa are all within 8km (5 miles). 

  • Accommodation at Le Pouch is generous and well equipped: The thick stone walls and shutters at the window make temperature control simple in hot weather. 

    The three bedrooms, all upstairs,  are: 

     - Master Bedroom - with Super King double bed
     - Double Bedroom - Standard double bed
     - Twin bedroom with two single beds. 

    A bath room and a shower room upstairs are complemented by downstairs wcs with basins. 


  • The private Swimming Pool measures 11 x 5m and has an alarm system. Water purity is maintained with chlorine. It is surrounded by a good-sized terrace, and also enjoys the views across the countryside.

    A charcoal barbecue is also provided.

    The surroundings are mainly grassed, with trees and shrubs around, and a number of flowering plants carefully maintained make Le Pouch a peaceful spot in an idyllic position, ideal for a restful holiday in the countryside.

  • Le Pouch is ideally located in quiet countryside, but within a short distance there is an arterial country road enabling reasonably direct access to the towns of the Garonne valley (Agen,Valence d'Agen, Moissac) or the historic towns of the Quercy Blanc ( Montaigu de Quercy, Roquecor, Lauzerte, Montcuq) 
    The towns of the Lot valley (Villeneuve sur Lot, Fumel, Prayssac and Cahors) can also be easily reached, 

    The countryside is a large food basket, with vineyards nearby including Vin du Tsar and Domaine du Garinet which are both open for tastings and direct purchase of excellent wines and other foods. As you travel among the acres of sunflowers you will also see soft fruit orchards, many producing plums for 'Pruneaux d'Agen', vegetables and nuts. Many of these are available direct from producers at markets which are held on most days of the week somewhere close by. A list is included under 'The Area' information at the top of this page. 


    Much of this produce is also used by restauranteurs, and a variety of restaurants can be found to suit all tastes: Food is generally of high quality, and prices very reasonable. Local specialities include delicious duck dishes.

    Those who enjoy venturing into history will also be very well catered for in this area with numerous 'bastide' villages dating from medieval times, some of which are perched on fortified hilltops. All make interesting visits: Lauzerte and Pujols are both listed among 'Les Plus Beaux Villages de France',  Villeneuve-sur-Lot and Cahors both had Roman activity, and there are more medieval villages along the River Lot, including Puy L'Eveque, built cleverly into a very steep slope above the river.

    To the north of the River, Lot is some spectacular scenery, and there are two chateaux of note, Chateau de Bonaguil and Chateau Biron both open to visitors and making interesting visits.


    All along the River Lot, there are water-based activities including boat hire and river cruises. The nearest points to Le Pouch will be at 'Port Penne' near Penne d'Agenais and Fumel.

    There is also a water park at Montaigu de Quercy, about 6km away, with a large beach area, lifeguard patrolled (in season) swimming, pedalo and boat hire, and some bars and restaurants.
