    It is surrounded by a good-sized terrace, with ample terrace furniture including sun loungers and sunshades. 

    The south facing pool terrace extends into a delightful shady garden which includes a boules pitch, and there is also a shady north facing terrace and smaller lawned area on the north side of the house.

    There is roadside parking for 2 vehicles.

  • Verdus is located in quiet countryside, a good distance off the main Villeneuve-sur-Lot to Cahors road which makes travelling around quick and easy: Nearby Tournon d'Agenais is a meeting of roads to all directions so larger towns such as Fumel, Moissac, Agen and Cahors are all within reasonably easy reach. 
    The character towns of the area including Montcuq, Lauzerte and Montaigu de Quercy can also be easily reached, 

    The countryside around this area is noted for food production, with many Cahors AOC 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 vines and 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 Verdus will be at 'Port Penne' near Penne d'Agenais and Fumel.

    For those wishing to explore by bicycle the countryside is gently rolling and cycling generally easy: More testing countryside can be found to the south, or (with the exception of one long slope down or up) the Lot Valley offers many miles of very level, easy and safe roads within a few kilometers of the house. 

    There is also a water park at Montaigu de Quercy, about 10km away, with a large beach area, lifeguard patrolled (in season) swimming, pedalo and boat hire, and some bars and restaurants, or riverside swimming in the River Lot at Castelfranc, about 15km away.
