French Holiday Villa Rentals - Halcyon Leisure
Le Mayne
01MAY
  • A very private location for an extended family
  • High quality renovated Napoleonic house
  • Sleeps up to 16 (5 double rooms + dortoir for 6)
  • Also ideal for small parties wanting spring or autumn peace
  • 11 x 5.5m exclusive pool
  • 27ha (60 acres) of woodland and fields to explore
  • Large selection of games available for families to enjoy
  • Reduced occupancy rates for May June and September stays
  • 5km from Sauveterre-la-Lémance

Le Mayne is one of those places that the nearer you get you to wonder where you are going, as you leave a small country road onto a gravelled track with grass in the middle before you approach the property from the rear.

Le Mayne View

A peaceful oasis away from the world, and a chance for children to be children and families to be families - there is no wired internet connection, but in its place a good-sized swimming pool, table tennis, pool, volleyball, badminton, boules, woodland, fields and more for an active family to explore and interact together. That said, a mobile phone mast can be seen in the distance above the tree line, and so internet by 3G is fairly strong, and the Owner and his family manage quite adequately to communicate with that, although streaming and other high demand internet applications are unlikely to work properly.

The date above the door of the oldest part of the building is 1815, but once through the door, you are into a thoughtfully and carefully renovated house with five double bedrooms and a 'dortoir' of six single beds.

Available for smaller parties away from the main season, Le Mayne will certainly appeal to those who seek the French countryside's privacy with no near neighbours, and no roads or other transport links in view.

Haute Caussine is an ideal place for a romantic retreat for two, or equally for a large boisterous family to enjoy an active holiday together.

This is an ideal place to go for that special occasion or to retreat from the world to discover your family and friends together.

The original 16th century Quercy stone house has been very sympathetically renovated and added to with a wall dividing the parking area from the terrace, creating a sun trap around the pool in the process, and other outbuildings constructed with complementary features to give a very striking air to the property as a whole.

Set in around 6 acres of landscaped gardens with mature trees and shrubs, the ambience is one of great peace, and an ideal place for those seeking somewhere private for that special occasion, or to find some peace to devote the mind to matters entirely: It is little wonder that the house is owned by an award-winning writer.

The slightly elevated swimming pool is very open and enjoys complete sunshine and a panoramic countryside view.

Les Bouysses is on the edge of Duravel, a small town about midway between Cahors and Villeneuve Sur Lot. It sits at the end of a cul de sac off a quiet no through road that leads down to the river. 

With views across fields and vineyards, it is extremely peaceful, and a quiet break is assured. 

views across the fields

It is also midway along the Vallée du Lot cycle route that runs along the Lot valley, and the route can be accessed within 200m of the house, or for more testing cycling, immediately north of Duravel the landscape rises into the chestnut covered hills of the southernmost Périgord and Bouriane, or across the river and over the ridge is the beautiful rolling countryside of the Quercy Blanc around Tournon d'Agenais and Montaigu de Quercy. 

For house hunters or those seeking a longer-term stay in the area, possibly as a base to explore South and West France, Les Bouysses would be an excellent choice.
