Stayed at La Grange for a week in July. Wonderful well equipped Gite with a fabulous pool. Would definitely visit again!
As others have mentioned, the barn is extremely well presented, well equipped and comfortable. We caught the end of the heatwave and as well as more manageable sunshine we also experienced some hefty thunderstorms and downpours. However one of the barns attractions for us was the undercover outside seating area which was very well furnished and a great spot for the evenings, rain or shine. The owners mother, Gerda, even wandered round to us in the middle of a thunderstorm to advise us about the Wi-Fi being knocked out. So thoughtful of her. The swimming pool is a short stroll from the barn but is beautifully clean and a really good size and is surrounded by flowers. The area is beautiful and we climbed up the nearby hill to watch the sunset which was stunning. We saw plenty of deer around and the surrounding villages are all really pretty, we especially liked Montcuq and immensely enjoyed the Sunday market as well as returning for lunch another day.
The property is a characterful converted stone barn which is spacious and cool so the lack of aircon was not an issue even though there was a heat wave during our one week stay. It is located in the countryside and has ample space for parking in front of the main house. Geoffrey's mum Girda was a charming lady and very welcoming. As cat people we adored her collection of cats, although they were nervous about getting close. The pool is a short walk from the gite and was clean, totally private and with a shaded area which was much needed during our stay. The gite was well provided with plates, cutlery, kitchen utensils, seating and dining areas. The dishwasher proved useful and there is a fridge freezer, oven and washing machine. All of the regulations are clearly labelled around the gite in English and French and lots of cleaning products and utensils provided for the tenant's use. The bathroom was spacious with a powerful shower and a combi boiler for plentiful hot water. A covered patio attached to the gite is ideal for al fresco dining, together with a barbecue which we did not use. There is a mezzanine area, complete with snooker table which we also did not use. The TV has Sky TV with English programmes which was great for those evenings in with a bottle of wine. Castlenau, the nearest village, is a 15 minute cross country drive and has a Spar supermarket and a pleasant medieval square with two restaurants. The town of Cahors is a similar distance and is well provided for in all respects.
