Overview

About the property

Farmhouse near Moissac, Tarn et Garonne, Midi Pyrenees - Set In 14 Acres Of Garden, Meadows And Woodland With Glorious Views

The region offers a delightful combination of magnificent rivers, rolling hills, sunflowers, orchards, vineyards and forest. Moissac in the Tarn-et-Garonne is famous for its Romanesque abbey and cloister. Close by are the rosy pink cities of Toulouse, Montauban and Albi. This is the 'land of the bastides' - the medieval villages which are an outstanding feature of south-west France. Lauzerte, Auvillar, Beaumont-de-Lomagne, Cordes, Bruniquel and St. Antonin-Noble-Val are all within easy reach. To the west are Bordeaux and its famous vineyards and to the east the vineyards of Gaillac. To the south lie Gascony and, beyond, the mountains of the Pyrénées. Much of the furniture is in the traditional French style, with antique wardrobes and some wide single antique beds (although the mattresses are new). The kitchen is very well equipped and there is Freesat TV and a DVD player, a stereo system with CD player, a snooker table, books and board and card games.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"What a lovely spot – so peaceful and private yet close to the beautiful town of Moissac. The house is brilliant, lots of space and nice bedrooms and the terrace and pool are fabulous. Very well equipped for large parties – you’ve thought of everything!"

"We stayed for 14 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The pool is a fabulous size with ample room for sunbeds and chairs for 12. The shaded terrace is the perfect accompaniment and gives the perfect place for meals. Everything is on site - BBQ, external beer/wine fridge, table tennis (great fun) and the music system gave us our own soundtrack. The house itself is ideal and big enough to give privacy. The upstairs is better for kids and the kitchen is comfortably big enough to prepare a good size meal for 12 people. We loved the villa and would recommend it to families who like a peaceful rural environment."

"We enjoyed every minute. Beautiful scenery and views of the meadows and woodland. Thanks and see you again next year."

Lovely Location, Pleasant House

  • 4 of 5

Our three generation party, including children ranging in age from 2-16, stayed for a fortnight in this pleasant house in a delightful location near the historic town of Moissac with its stunning mediaeval abbey. The house was reasonably spacious, if a little quirky upstairs with its low ceilings and doors which caused a few sore heads to the adults (though that added to its charm for the children), well equipped and comfortable. The immediate external surroundings were well tended with spacious areas for youthful exploration beyond.

The large pool was superb and floodlit bathing as a special treat for which they were allowed to stay up one night was an unforgettable experience for the younger children. Other diversions include table tennis and pool tables and a good selection of books and games.

Overall this is an excellent property for a family holiday, is good value for money and is one that we'll certainly consider visiting again.
