DETAILS & AMENITIES

This old village house has been completely renovated to create a modern holiday home for up to 6 guests. Step through the tall glass doorway and down the steps to be greeted with chic interiors with a stylish open-plan lounge and kitchen below you and a mezzanine office space above. Upstairs, two doubles and a twin await with large windows framing the verdant vistas alongside two bathrooms, one of them en suite.

Step out of the sliding windows and be amazed by the gorgeous countryside as you gaze through the trees in the rustic garden. Sit back with a glass of local wine in the dappled shade or follow the old stone steps down to the swimming pool level with its decked terracing, sun-loungers and al-fresco lounge.

Stroll to the heart of the village in less than 200m where you can pick up simple groceries and fresh bread and admire the beautifully arcaded houses of the main square before stopping off for a coffee in the village café-bar. There are more lovely views as you follow the village’s Chemin des Remparts trail or come across other peaceful walking and cycling trails in the surrounding countryside.

Potter around idyllic villages and nearby market towns, soaking up the relaxing ambience of this slow-paced region and coming across a wealth of delicious local produce from melons, strawberries, tomatoes and prunes to cheeses, magret and foie gras, not to mention the many wines (Cahors is only an hour away)!

Canoe or kayak along the Lot and Garonne rivers, cycle the greenway by the Canal de la Garonne and spend time in the historic town of Agen with its daily covered market, exquisite architecture and grand cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Pick up some prunes steeped in Armagnac to take home and enjoy on your terraced garden overlooking the gentle scenery of the Agenais countryside.

Location:

With countryside views from its garden and terraced swimming pool, Maison Beaucharme is located in an old village in the Lot-et-Garonne department of southern France.

The traditional village house opens straight to the road leading into the village. Stroll along the road (no pavement) into the heart of the village (within 200m) and find the grocery (also selling bread), a café bar and pharmacy as well as a second-hand charity shop run by locals. The village has a turbulent history but nowadays it’s a very pretty place to stroll around with its 16th century church, village square and arcaded buildings. Follow the Chemin des Remparts for lovely views of the gentle landscapes around you whilst there are many wonderful walking and cycling trails across the nearby countryside.

Spend time visiting picturesque market towns and little villages including medieval Laroque-Timbaut (11km) with its restaurants, shops and old market hall, Roquecor (9km) with its gallery and Sunday morning market as well as characterful Frespech (9km). Heading north towards the River Lot, the incredibly attractive village of Penne-d’Agenais is worthy of a visit, as is hilltop Pujols (26km), classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

Enjoy the riverside bastide town of Villeneuve-sur-Lot (28km) and its twice-weekly market and look out for summer water-based activities along the river near here and Castelmoron-sur-Lot (42km). Venturing south, the market town of Valence (25km) is near the banks of the Garonne and the Canal des Deux Mers passes through, a pleasant spot for canalside strolls and cycle rides.

The traditional town of Montaigu-de-Quercy (16km) hosts an atmospheric market on a Saturday morning, not far from Montaigu Plage with its sandy lakeside beach, summer swimming and other activities. Lauzerte (26km) is another one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ – the Tour de France sometimes passes through whilst Monflanquin (46km) and Monpazier (58km) are two of the region’s most beautiful bastide towns.

Of course, Agen (26km) is a must-visit, also by the banks of the Garonne, with its exquisite historic architecture, half-timbered houses, grand cathedral (a UNESCO World Heritage site), Musée des Beaux-Arts and once again the Canal des Deux Mers. Try delicious prunes steeped in Armagnac and all sorts of other regional delights at the daily covered market or experience the main market on a Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday morning.

As well as Agen prunes, other specialties from this region include tomatoes from Marmande, melons, strawberries, asparagus, nuts, a variety of cheeses and of course foie gras, not to mention various wines from across the vineyards of Lot et Garonne and beyond, including the Malbec wineries of Cahors, just over an hour away by car.

Arrival time is 4.00 p.m. and departure time is 10.00 a.m.

Please note that pool opening dates are subject to local weather conditions and pool maintenance requirements and that cooler months may not be suitable for swimming.

This house is better suited to older children, mainly because of the different levels both inside and out and unprotected areas by the swimming pool. Younger children are welcome but will need careful supervision throughout.
