About the property

Stone House in Catus, Lot, Midi-Pyrenees, France - Quiet Location But Close To All Amenities, Lot River, Cahors Vineyards

This lovely holiday home is situated in tranquil countryside with many tracks. The name of the house is MAISON CATUS, on Francevilla.nl you can see more pictures is you want and the exact calendar. We may be able to suggest an alternatif if booked. This traditional stone house with vaulted ground floor and covered terrace faces west and stands in 25 acres towards the end of a leafy lane. The swimming pool lies unobtrusively behind a stone barn, and the superb tennis court, nestles beyond in the orchard. The house and gardens have a rural, friendly feel with plenty of outside space for games and siestas and are ideal for family holidays. The leisure lake at Catus, (20 minutes walk) has a sandy beach, pedaloes, canoes, cafe and childrens’ playground. Cahors, Sarlat and Rocamadour are sites to visit nearby. House is very well taken care off by an English manager, when you arrive, lots of information on the region and the house will be awaiting you together with a friendly welcome.

About Lydia Mennes

I am Lydia Mennes, a Dutch lady with two children (one adopted from Haiti and one born to us), having lived in the area for more than 6 years. I rent out this lovely house for my good friend Sabine Flageul, who has confided it to me. I can give you lots of information on the area, the habits of the people and where to go to. My husband and I go at least 3 times a year to this beautiful area in France, where culture, nature, love for food comes so well together, we love the region!

Lydia Mennes purchased this house in 2002

Why Lydia Mennes chose Catus

This is the most beautiful region in France, with its vineyards, its many castles, its green pastures, hills and wonderful nature.

What makes this house unique

Calm, relaxation, nature, space, private tennis court, heated pool, rest, everything is close.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Excellent private tennis court, kitchen well equipped, plenty of sports equipment plus ping pong a big hit!

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Catus has been in the family for many years and three generations have enjoyed summer holidays in this lovely home. Over the last years renovation work has been done, including a full size tennis court with a basketball wall, a new kitchen, and additional en suite facilities. The pool surround has been enlarged and makes a perfect sunbathing area in front of the barn. There is a covered terrace which faces west, and stands in 25 acres towards the end of a leafy lane. The swimming pool lies unobtrusively behind a stone barn, and the superb tennis court, nestles beyond in the orchard. The house and gardens have a rural, friendly feel with plenty of outside space for games and siestas and are ideal for family holidays. Ideal for walking with maps provided. The lake at Catus, (20 minutes walk) has a sandy beach, pedaloes, canoes, cafe and children's playground Outside: The private pool can be heated and we unfortunately need to charge you for electricity. Tennis court and basket ball court are completely new and all very well cared for. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: electricity included up till 150kW/h, free use of the tennis court, log wood, a nice bottle of wine when you arrive....

Fantastic place of peace!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Lydia

I thought you might like to know that we had a wonderful, relaxing time at Maison Catus (Sept). As we had hoped, the place was very picturesque, full of character with plenty of space and good facilities. We made great use of the pool and tennis court! I hope we might rent the place again in the future as it was so convenient, too, for visiting my brother which was one of the reasons we chose this property. I would also like to mention that the cleaner who met us on arrival and David M. were very kind and helpful.

Many thanks for providing us with a lovely holiday!

Kind regards

J.
