The photographs on the web site really made me choose this property. The barn was very spacious and clean. I especially liked the white colour scheme and the Provincal pottery which gave the barn a very French feeling. The terrace had plenty of outdoor furniture. The owner was very welcoming and helpful. She also advised us on Sunday markets, activities and excursions we could take. You can have a wonderful 3-course lunch with coffee and wine for 13 euros in the small local market towns. I especially liked the 2 restaurants in Castelnau Montratier. In Cahors we discovered a small vegetarian restaurant called Celine. In the commune of Cezac there is an excellent resurfaced tennis court. The countryside is completely unspoiled. Locally you can go for wonderful walks. From the top of the hill outside the barn you can see 2 valleys and watch the sunset. A magical sight. I hope the countryside will remain unspoiled for ever. The barn is very good value for money. I have recommend the barn to all my friends and relatives
We really felt as though the barn was an excellent base to explore the Lot Department, as there are so many things to see all within an hour or so- the truly jaw-dropping Rocamadour and Les Gouffres de Padirac, the beautiful town of St. Cirq Lapopie, the prehistoric caves at Pech Merle, Tournons d'Agenais, etc. Cahors is only about 15 mins drive away, and is great for day trips- we recommend L'Auberge de Vieux Cahors for dinner- the food was great. Also try Hotel de Qercy in Lauzerte- delicious! Montcuq is only 10 mins away and has a superb market every sunday, and a pleasure lake with a sandy beach (plan d'eau). Carrefour supermarket is only 15 mins away on the drive into Cahors which was really handy. We had a wonderful two weeks at Le Grange de Cezac. The converted barn oozes character and charm- we loved it from the moment we walked in. We were blown away by the sheer size of the barn, and the full size snooker table on the mezzanine level was a great touch for relaxed evenings. The owners of the barn Geoff and Gerda could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and whilst they gave us our space, they were on hand to help whenever we needed anything. We brought our nine month old daughter, and were pleased to see a lovely, sturdy cot ready for her, and a good high chair. The bedding was immaculate, the kitchen and all utensils were of a very good standard and also immaculate. The outside seating area next to the bbq was lovely for al fresco dining, and there was a 10 second walk through the garden to the private pool which was superb- we felt that the pool was one of the best features of the property- really deep deep end, and a good size. We saw eagles circling high above us as we floated in the cooling water- paradise. We went out for day trips, heading back to the barn around 4-5pm, which is the perfect time to enjoy the hot summer sun around the pool. We even had a surprise visit from a hummingbird! We were really sad to leave the barn, and would definitely recommend it to anyone. It is simply a charming, characterful rural retreat that would suit a couple or a big family. The fact that it is near Cahors and there are so many great days out not too far away make the barn a very good base to explore the region, but not only that, it is also a lovely place to simply relax at home, enjoying the pool and the bbq. We highly recommend it.
We have had an excellent holiday and thought the barn conversion was fabulous. The property is very well maintained and the barn was comfortable and clean. We had 7 days of good hot sunshine which we didn't really expect at the end of September and spent most of our time at the pool. There are some beautiful villages nearby where we enjoyed the restaurants, particularly the Hotel du Quercy at Lauzerte.
