About the property

Set on a four-acre hilltop in complete privacy, 'Barreau' is surrounded by forests, farms and orchards, with a panoramic view of the surrounding Quercy countryside. The farmhouse, built in 1700, and adjacent 'barn' have been exquisitely restored to an intimate cottage atmosphere. One enters the front gate onto a large open terrace and the outdoor patio with its built-in barbecue. At the rear of the property is the Roman salt water pool, bordered by a lush lavender hedge. The property is comprised of 4 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and comfortably sleeps 9 people. There is a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, living room/dining room area and a utility rooms with a washer/dryer. There is free internet/telephone and wifi. We have successfully rented the property for over 10 years.


The property is available for weekly rentals throughout the year.

We have just joined Owners Direct and have no reviews yet, but please read what some of our other renters have said about the property:

“An outstanding property, beautifully situated, flexible accommodation, lovely furniture, first rate…. The best equipped house we’ve rented in 20 years!”

“A wonderful holiday at what is indeed a very special place. A lovely property, location and facilities and some ‘extras’ that made for an extremely relaxing and care-free break for 4 generations.”

“What a view! What a lovely house! The whole area is so beautiful and we enjoyed the relaxing hammocks and the pretty villages.”

“ We loved the house and surrounds, the weather was kind to us and we had a fantastic time…. Only disappointment was failing to finish the ping pong tournament!”

“We have spent a beautiful week here, loved the garden, the views, the little walks, the lavender, the table tennis, the house so well-equipped, the pool, having long leisurely breakfasts, playing boules on the gravel. We wish it could be longer!”

Why The Owner chose Montaigu-de-Quercy

We had never been to the Quercy region before, but instantly fell in love with the beautiful countryside. Although we have lived all over the world, the unique hilltop location of Barreau, with its breathtaking views, was our favorite of all the places we saw. We are sure that you will agree!

Wonderful property with spectacular views,

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this place justice. We have stayed in holiday homes in many different places around the world and this is, by far, the best equipped, most beautiful and relaxing place we have stayed in . The rooms were very comfortable and it was wonderful having 3 full bathrooms for our group. Aside from relaxing in the pool and hammocks, there are wonderful hikes all around. We had great intentions to visit all of the wonderful sights, castles, vineyards and markets in the region but the allure of the swimming pool was just too great!! We now have an excuse to come back and we will definitely stay here again. Thank you for opening up your beautiful home to us!
