Overview

Property

Updated: 28-Nov-2016
Farmhouse in Estaing, Lot Valley, Midi-Pyrenees, France - Sunning location, quiet yet only a short pip out to all local amenities - beautifully restored house

Les Lilias is a wonderful holiday home ideal for those who want the best of both worlds, quiet comfort and luxury as well as every possible extra. Seven elegantly furnished bedrooms (4 double bedrooms, 2 twins & 1 quad bedroom) and spacious living areas within an acre of secluded gardens. This delightful holiday home is only 2.5km from the historical village of Estaing which has been awarded one of the prettiest villages in France. For those of you who want peace, tranquility with outstanding views yet close to all amenities – you have just found your next holiday…!

Set on the outskirts of the stunning historic village of Estaing in the Lot Valley this wonderful 19th Century farmhouse offers newly renovated, top quality, luxury accommodation.

The house is situated on the Chemin de St Jacques de Compostella (the "pilgrims way" of St James the Great), which runs from France to northern Spain. There's just a 15 minute walk to the centre of beautiful Estaing, voted one of the prettiest villages in France.

Located in the beautiful Lot Valley in the foot hills of the Massif Central, the scenery is spectacular and the area is renowned for walking, horse riding and fishing on the Lot. Situated 45 minutes drive into the mountains you will find river rapid dinghy rides for the braver holiday maker!

The local weather is lovely with spring and autumn similar to a British summer. The summer is hotter 30 - 38 degrees C but not too humid and because it is quite high, it is often sunny but not unbearably hot. The winter is sunny, cold, crisp and clear. Skiing is only 35 minutes away. The hot tub even closer!

Rentall periods run from Saturday to Saturday only.

About the Owner

We are Jim & Fiona Hobby and Maura & Tony Beishon. We all share the ownership of Les Lilas. We bought the house 8 years ago and completely renovated it adding hot tub, heated pool and all mod cons.

We would love you to discover Les Lilas, the Lot valley and our nearby town of Estaing, which meets the 30-odd criteria required to be officially included among the 150 odd "Most Beautiful Villages of France." See the link below:

Guestbook comments from the owner

‘Well, what can we say but a fantastic holiday with an equally fantantic house! Can't really tell you much about places to visit, etc. as we never left the house. Weather was great for the whole 2 weeks. Will deffo!! be coming back next year.’ - John and Eli, Edinburgh, Scotland



‘Lovely, comfortable house. Well equipped with everything that is necessary. All the bedrooms are different but equally charming. The beds are so comfortable ensuring a good night's sleep. Easy to stay in and around house to chill and relax..contd.’ - Peter and Diana



‘Pool is lovely style and very welcoming in the heat of the day and evening. For excursions-the Millau Viaduct is spectacular and certainly worth viewing. Espallion and Estaing are close enough to explore, not just the once.’ - Peter and Diana

Fabulous relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had a fabulous holiday here in July. The house was huge & beautifully clean. It provided everything we needed & more for our stay. The pool & hot tub are fantastic & was were huge hit! We ate outside for almost all meals & the peace & tranquility was lovely. We did have the company of the farmer one day whilst he ferlilised his crops, but it just added to the charm of this place (it didn't smell by the way)!

We didn't stray far to be honest as we wanted a quiet holiday, but did visit Estaing which is absolutely stunning! I would definitely recommend this to friends & family & hope to return one day!

Stay at Les Lilas

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful family time down there. Early Sept wasn't at all bad. Pool was lovely and warm and the house is well kitted out for large familes. Masses of bedrooms to sort out all mixes of young and old. Very large dining room and lots of space to sit outside too. The house is near to the lovely town of Estaing where the bakers is and there are plenty of supermarkets in the area. All the facilities were easy to get your head around and there are washing machines and driers to keep on top of things. The hot tub is fun and nice and private away from any intrusion. One querky thing about the house is the pilgrims that walk by every now and then. All very friendly making their way on the route St Jaques du compostella. There are local bars and restaurants but we tended to cook at home which suited us better. Your money goes further that way. There are local wine cave's and the local wine is good. Nearby is a really interesting geological structure called the "Trou de Bouzolles". A must see it must have been cut by the river millions of years ago and is now a very deep canyon. Worth a visit. Have fun !!

A country house in tranquil rural surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We celebrated a 75th birthday party totalling 12 people which the house catered for very easily. Very well equipped both in kitchen,bedrooms and bathrooms. Plenty of space outside for games and great swimming including the hot tub which was very popular. Surrounded by beautiful country side with lovely walks and an easy walk into Estaing village for fresh bread and some shopping, including some nice restaurants. If you are looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday, this is it!

Location

From the Owner

We fell in love with Les Lilas and Aveyron on first sight. Every season brings its own ambiance in Aveyron in the Mid Pyrenees with its ever evolving countryside full of colour, a buzz with dragon flies and butterflies. With an array of outdoor activities for all ages the surrounding gorges, mountains, streams and the gushing waters of the Tarn and Lot Rivers make it a good base for outdoor activities including kayaking and canoeing, fishing, walking, cycling, hang gliding and paragliding, quad, horse riding rock climbing and caving and golf . In fact one of the routes of the pilgrim’s way to Santiago de Compostela runs through the Lot valley. There are lots of places of interest to visit; Conques, Saint Foy Abbey is 13k, the Lakes of Leveyou 24k and the Chateau de Conros 25k.
