About Lise Othmar

My husband and I-both danish- bought our first property in the Lot in 1986, while we lived in London.

We fell in love with this unspoilt area of rural France, restored the house, and had some wonderful holidays the next 12 years, then we bought a chateaux, but after 3 years we decided to sell, it was to much work to keep it up. We then fell in love with an amazing townhouse/ruin from the 14th century in the charming bastide village of Castelnau Montratier, it's now completely restored and very beautiful. Some years ago a property close to my house came up for sale, I bought it immediately, it's almost 300 years and has- like mine- the most beautiful view. It has now been restored to a very high standard, and is tastefully furnished with an eclectic mix of contemporary and antiques.

Lise Othmar purchased this house in 2007

Why Lise Othmar chose Lot

Montratier Townhouse in ideallic French Village

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay in this beautifully presented charming French townhouse. It was lovely to be greeted by Lise on our arrival. The view from the back terrace is amazing looking down the valley and beyond. Many a glass of Rose was enjoyed from there. We loved the décor and ambience of the house it was most charming. How nice to look out the bedroom window and see the village streetscape and the local life of the people of the village. It was nice to be able to walk to the Boulangerie every morning for our croissants. The village has two restaurants just a short walk away. It was also nice to experience the markets in the town square. Many beautiful Medieval towns are within easy driving distance of Castelnau Montratier. We loved our stay here and can highly recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy a memorable French Village experience.

Thank you Lise for being such a wonderful hostess, nothing was too much trouble to you.

Faye and Tony

Charming old stone house

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely old townhouse in a small mountain village with a breathtaking view and an exceptional stylish interior. Carefully renovated with lots of antique furniture and surprisingly modern equipment, such as heated stone floor, double glazed windows and a small but well functioning kitchen. Perfect for visiting also in winter months.

A fantastic holiday in a fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

Living in the house was impressive. The building and its interior too contribute to a relaxed medievial and yet stylish atmosphere. You will experience an aesthetic and contemporary arrangement of the house which contribute to the splenidid experience of having your holiday in such an old and remarkable building.

The location of the house allows you to say hallo and be greeted in a local town filled with smiles. It doesen't matter if you do not understand the locals they will smile and nod to say hello.

Under our visit we also used the pool which was nice to have in the warm summer weather.

Lise was a great host and provided whatever help we needed during our stay.

Ideally situated, comfortable and beautifully maintained property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two week stay with our two daughters joining us for the first week. The historic property was perfectly placed in a market town with all amenities. Two boulangerie's near by and two restaurants to choose from in the pretty market square. The 180 degree view from the balcony is beautiful and we spent many an evening watching the swallows swoop around us as the sun set. The house is very comfortable and tastefully decorated by the owner Lisa who lives near by and made us very welcome. Cahors, one of our favourite French towns is a mere 20 minutes drive away and there is plenty to do and see in the beautiful Lot region. Highly recommended.

Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect holiday!

We spent 8 days of our holiday in this accomodation, and it was fantastic to return from visiting very interesting places and light the fire from the fireplace.

The house has three floors, we only use two, the first is the part of the terrace. The second floor has: kitchen, living room, and bedroom with bathroom. On the third floor has very high ceilings and is a little cooler and this is the other room with bathroom. The fully equipped kitchen.

It is a beautiful house.

We made the trip in February and have to keep in mind that many of the museums are closed, but has the advantage of being able to visit museums without agglomerations.

Thanks to Lise for her kindness.
