Exceptionally quiet, the house is situated on the edge of the small rural village of Miramont de Quercy. The village has an excellent traditional French restaurant and the village also has its own artisan French bakery - both are within easy reach of the house. Drinking and no driving and fresh croissants for breakfast.
Shaded terracing, a charcoal BBQ and outdoor table and chairs all contribute to wonderful summer evenings and happy memories of dining al fresco. There's also a full-size table tennis table in its own courtyard complete with bats and balls.
Avoid the crowds, cheaper flights : please note we book Thursday to Thursday. And you arrive in time for the best local food markets.
Surrounded by agricultural land and set within a small sleepy village the house is an excellent base to explore the beautiful Bastide medieval towns of Lauzerte, Montjoi and Moissac. Situated on top of a hill, Lauzerte is just 15 mins away by car - here you can enjoy an excellent coffee or lunch in the square at the top, take a walk through the Pilgrims' Garden and admire the views out of the countryside or visit the small art gallery. On the way home, drop in to the excellent supermarket complete with butchers, fresh fish fish and cheese counters. There's an excellent fresh food market on Saturdays in Lauzerte's town square.
The area is also popular with cycling enthusiasts - the roads are quiet, generally pot-hole free, the 'ups' are challenging and the downs thrilling. In 2019 the house is not too far from the Albi-Toulouse leg of the Tour-de-France should you be looking for a villa to rent during mid-July when this world-renowned cycling race takes place.. For those who are into bird watching and nature you may catch a glimpse of our local hoopoe family in the garden whilst in the sky you frequently see buzzards and other raptors wheeling.
Slightly further afield, there's river kayaking, horse-riding and golf. Walkers can enjoy the trails and long distance paths in the area - we are situated not far from the main Santiago-di-Compostella Pilgrims route and in the region of at least one of the legs of the Tour-De-France. In mid July 2019, the Albi-Toulouse leg of the Tour-de-France passes not to far from our house if you are looking for a property to rent close to the Tour. Throughout the summer and in all the surrounding villages and towns there are traditional fresh meat, fruit and vegetable markets to be visited most days of the week and night markets in the summer - Agen (where the prunes originally came come from) is a favourite.
And if all that's too much, snooze by your very own private heated pool and let the world come to you. There really is something for all the family, something for everyone.
