About the Owner

You will most likely be welcomed upon your arrival by Wilson, our now rather old ginger cat, followed shortly afterwards by my mother, Gerda, who lives in the main house next door.

I have been renovating, renting and selling properties in France for 25 years.

Fantastic Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We really felt as though the barn was an excellent base to explore the Lot Department, as there are so many things to see all within an hour or so- the truly jaw-dropping Rocamadour and Les Gouffres de Padirac, the beautiful town of St. Cirq Lapopie, the prehistoric caves at Pech Merle, Tournons d'Agenais, etc. Cahors is only about 15 mins drive away, and is great for day trips- we recommend L'Auberge de Vieux Cahors for dinner- the food was great. Also try Hotel de Qercy in Lauzerte- delicious! Montcuq is only 10 mins away and has a superb market every sunday, and a pleasure lake with a sandy beach (plan d'eau). Carrefour supermarket is only 15 mins away on the drive into Cahors which was really handy.

We had a wonderful two weeks at Le Grange de Cezac. The converted barn oozes character and charm- we loved it from the moment we walked in. We were blown away by the sheer size of the barn, and the full size snooker table on the mezzanine level was a great touch for relaxed evenings. The owners of the barn Geoff and Gerda could not have been more welcoming and helpful, and whilst they gave us our space, they were on hand to help whenever we needed anything. We brought our nine month old daughter, and were pleased to see a lovely, sturdy cot ready for her, and a good high chair. The bedding was immaculate, the kitchen and all utensils were of a very good standard and also immaculate. The outside seating area next to the bbq was lovely for al fresco dining, and there was a 10 second walk through the garden to the private pool which was superb- we felt that the pool was one of the best features of the property- really deep deep end, and a good size. We saw eagles circling high above us as we floated in the cooling water- paradise. We went out for day trips, heading back to the barn around 4-5pm, which is the perfect time to enjoy the hot summer sun around the pool. We even had a surprise visit from a hummingbird!

We were really sad to leave the barn, and would definitely recommend it to anyone. It is simply a charming, characterful rural retreat that would suit a couple or a big family. The fact that it is near Cahors and there are so many great days out not too far away make the barn a very good base to explore the region, but not only that, it is also a lovely place to simply relax at home, enjoying the pool and the bbq.

We highly recommend it.

Absolutely stunning gite

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in numerous gites over the years of varying quality - this beautiful converted barn surpassed them all. The accommodation was very comfortable (gorgeous bedrooms), it was very well-equipped - dishwasher, microwave, freezer, washing machine, etc. and we received a warm welcome. The snooker table was a hit with the teenagers! We would recommend Gite La Grange de Cezac to anyone of any age. The private pool is a real sun-trap from morning to evening, and the whole place is quiet, but close enough to some amazing towns and villages; some real "must-sees". We cannot recommend this holiday home highly enough - a really outstanding find (I think we'll try to come back)!

A pefect base for exploring

  • 5 of 5

A quiet, comfortable base to explore the surrounding area with much more to see than you will have time for. Gerda was fantastically helpful suggesting places to go.

A wonderful, relaxing break.

Great stay at La Grange

  • 5 of 5

The property was very good. It was spacious and clean with all the facilities we required. Set in a tranquil location it was a relaxing place to be. The owners' mother lives in an adjacent property and provided helpful advice but was not intrusive in any way. There is a great pool in a really hot sun trap. There were a number of small local villages to visit to eat or have a drink and watch the world go by. There is of course Cahors to visit which is interesting in its own right. If you drive a bit further then there are a number of tourist attractions.

Would we visit this property again? in short yes.

A Great Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a great holiday again. This is our second stay. We particularly like the spacious barn and its setting. We have now completed all the walks in the local guide provided by Geoffrey but look forward to repeating some of them again next year. The surrounding villages are full of local character and charm and are perfect for sitting outside for our lunch breaks.
