About the property

Secluded farmhouse with heated swimming pool, games room and large garde


La Peyriere is one of the most beautiful examples of a french farmhouse you could possibly find, located right in the heart of Aveyron, South-West France. Situated in the hills near the town of La Fouillade, it provides the perfect escape from everyday life, yet it's within 30 minutes drive of 3 stunning towns, 2 recently voted the most beautiful in the whole of France.

A very typical example of local architecture with a beautiful 'fish scale' slate tile roof. Renovated to a very high standard and impeccably maintained ever since. The sunset over the pool and kitchen is to die for!

The property benefits from a beautiful outdoor area, with terrace overlooking the headed swimming pool and BBQ (the pool is open May - October) and wrapped around with a 4 acre field to provide you with as much privacy as you could wish for.

Nestled in the hills 5 minutes from Lunac, a village with Boulangarie, and 10 minutes from La Fouillade, which has a major supermarket. We're incredibly lucky to be just 15 minutes away from Najac, a village named as a 'Beaux Village de France'.

Slightly further afield we are 30 minutes drive away form 3 stunning towns... Saint Antonin Noble Val, with a stunning Sunday market and voted the most beautiful town in France in 2015. Then to the South East, Cordes sur Ciel, a hilltop town with lovely restaurants and shops, voted the most beautiful town in France a few years earlier!

To the North is Villefranche de Rouergue, another stunning town with a cracking Thursday market.

About Chris

Kim and I both live and work in London with our daughter Lilly. My family are half French and I grew up so close to French culture it was always a dream to some day buy in France, thankfully Kim didn't need much persuading!

We've been renting our London home on airbnb for some time so we're used to catering for guests and have really enjoyed introducing each of our guests to a new area, there's much more to explore now in the Aveyron!

Chris purchased this farmhouse in 2016

Why Chris chose La Fouillade

The photos hopefully speak for themselves, but seeing the house in person took our breath away. it ticks every box, we wanted seclusion but also access to beautiful towns such as Cordes, St Antonin, Najac, Albi... the list goes on!

Pierre and Huguette also played a large part, they are almost like family and Pierre has known the house his whole life, he has some amazing stories to tell about its history.

What makes this farmhouse unique

If you want action, adventure, tranquility, nature, great food, great wine, great markets, culture, it's all there.

Not only that, the house is quite stunning, inside and out. Having had many holidays in Chambre D'Hotes across Provence and Le Lot we've tried to bring each bit we loved to La Peyriere.

Perfect bolt hole for a country escape

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daighter and I were looking for a weekend away from the hustle and bustle of London and came across La Peyriere, Chris answered our questions promptly and we soon realised this was the perfect spot. The weather was cold buy beautiful blue skies made for great walking and it was lovely to come back to a wood burning stove! Pierre and his wofe made us feel very welcome and pointed us to some beautiful spots nearby. The markets were well worth a visit, don’t miss St Antonin, they were selling quite palatable wine for €1.5 litre! We’d love to come again in the Spring and I think we may be regulars!

Fanatstic New Year's stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a most enjoyable week spent with friends at La Peyriere. The house was exactly as described, and there was plenty of room in the property for 2 families. Obviously we were there in mid winter so sadly we couldn't take advantage of the pool, however the huge grounds surrounding the property were great for the kids to explore. Inside, we had everything that we needed, travel cots, highchairs, board games etc. The kitchen was extremely well equipped, pots, pans, knives, chopping boards galore ! The woodburner in the living room was fantastic for the cool winter evenings.

Chris was easily contactable by email during the stay, and for any urgent requests, Pierre is just next door on the adjoining farm. He and his wife maintain the property to a high standard, and it was very clean when we arrived.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend La Peyriere to others, thank you for a great family break.

Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We came to La Peyriere looking for somewhere where could enjoy the last of the Autumn sunshine and share some good food and wine with friends. We were delighted to find that the weather was much better than what we left back in the UK, it topped 28c one day and the pool was well used as a result! The scenery around the house was breathtaking, imagine the best of the English countryside with a Mediterranean climate. There were markets on most days, we were glad to have gone to Villefranche on Thursday, where they had an incredible range of produce, in particular the cepes and chanterelle mushrooms. In the afternoon we made time to relax by the pool which was incredibly relaxing, there was plenty to see just form the pool, including hawks, kingfishers and the evening plenty of owls and frogs. Our highlight in the evening was putting on the wood burner and chatting over a few bottles of wine and planning our next day of adventures! We must also thank Pierre and Huguette who look dafter us incredibly well, Pierre visited us most days to ensure we had what we needed, he’s quite a character!

The perfect place for a break from it all, in peaceful, very rural and stunning surroundings

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely break at La Peyriere... late October and it hit 28 degrees! So with the pool still in action, we were able to enjoy it! The house is perfect for a country break, well equipped and comfortable. Chris sent us a fantastic information pack before we arrived, and we had such a lovely welcome on arrival. The surrounding area is full of beautiful villages, delicious restaurants and great markets. Can imagine La Peyriere is great in all seasons... for us, it was pool by day, roaring fires by night. Wonderful!

An delightful hideaway in bucholic countryside

  • 5 of 5

I rented this lovely house for 3 weeks at the end of September/beginning of October and had friends and family visit during my stay to celebrate a special birthday. The house oozes charm and is well equipped. We made use of the wood-stove on some cooler evenings and even roasted chestnuts we foraged on our walks. The boulangerie at Lunac is a 30 minute walk away through quiet roads and a great way to start the day. We used the pool during the first couple of weeks in the afternoons after our morning trips. There are a number of lovely historic villages/towns within an easy drive and a train service from Toulouse to Najac after an easy bus ride from the airport to the train station…a number of my guests came by this route with a simple pick up at Najac. This is definitely a destination for getting away from it all. Pierre and Huguette who care take the property are very welcoming and helpful at all times. A great find!

Great farmhouse with a fabulous outdoor pool area.

  • 5 of 5

La Peyriere sits in an area of lovely rolling countryside. It does feel a little bit out of the way when you first arrive there but it isn`t at all. Good little bakery in Lunac is 5 minutes away and the village of La Fouillade is 10 minutes. The Intermarche supermarket in La Fouillade has everything you need and is open 7 days a week in the summer. The village has a bar and café, great bakery, post office, and pizza restaurant and takeaway.

The house is in a wonderfully peaceful location. There is no traffic noise at all. We saw deer, hares, a fox and a pine marten. The kitchen is well equipped and the lounge is very comfortable. The basement is a great spot for noisy teenagers. The WiFi worked well everywhere.

The swimming pool area is the best bit. Really good quality outdoor furniture and good sized pool. We liked the roman steps in the shallow end and the ledge around the deep end which enables you to stand up at the side of the pool. The sun was on the pool from 10am until sunset. The pool light was great for an evening dip. Great to have a CD player in the barn.

The outdoor table is close to the kitchen door which makes it easy to eat outside. The patio is a lovely private and secluded area. Great for stargazing at night. The olive trees are a lovely touch.

Najac is only 15 minutes away. Lovely village to visit. We managed to get to the market in Villefranche de Rouergue in 25 minutes. Best to park near the railway station and arrive between 9 and 10am before the crowds. Lots of other great places to visit. St Antonin has a busy market on Sundays but worth a visit. Cordes sur Ciel as well.

Pierre and his wife live nearby and look after the house. Pierre visits regularly to clean the pool and have a chat. He is a knowledgeable local who knows everything there is to know. He directed us to a good butcher in Rieperoux. Great to find such an open and friendly Frenchman.

Chris was very responsive and helpful throughout the booking process. We would have no hesitation in recommending this farmhouse.

Richard and Ginny
