About the property

Barn in Cauzac, Nr. Agen, Lot et Garonne, Aquitaine / Dordogne, France - Magnificent Location, Sunny Terrace, Large Shady Garden With Bamboos And Parasol Pines

Moncuquet Grange is a stone built barn and pigeonnier, commanding southerly views over the valley of the 'Petit Seoune', a particularly tranquil part of unspoilt south west France. Drenched in medieval history, the immediate area has several 'bastide' or fortified villages (Beauville, Puymirol, Tournon d'Agenais) offering colourful markets and lively evening festivites throughout the summer. The contemporary styled living space is light, spacious and comfortable.The modern open plan sunny kitchen with granite cooking island, preparation area and breakfast bar, opens with full length glass sliding doors to a covered wooden terrace and pool for enjoying a real in/out living experience with a panoramic view. A south facing terrace offers sun worshippers a piece of paradise and the parasol pines guarantee a shady spot for reading, dozing or just gazing at the buzzards wheeling down the valley. Walks can be taken from the house down into the valley and up to wooded hills opposite.

About Lesley Moreland

I moved to France 25 years ago after having lived in London for 20 years. Working as a district nurse for the last 17 years I live with my 19 year old son Theo. The renovation of Moncuquet Grange has kept me busy over for the last 10 years. It is a really special spot, with fantastic views and on the non working days I like to take time just sit and enjoy gazing down the valley, after all it's the reason I moved to the countryside! I will be staying with friends nearby during the summer and so am available if needed, and will be passing by twice each week to clean the pool and water the garden.

Lesley Moreland purchased this barn in 2001

Why Lesley Moreland chose Lot-et-Garonne

The Barn has an amazing view over the valley which can be enjoyed from the kitchen, living room as well as the terrace outside.

The interior is light and modern, cool in summer with plenty of space.

A fantastic holiday in a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We had the most fantastic holiday here. The view was to die for and waking up every morning, throwing open the doors and stepping out, with a cup of coffee, was a treat indeed. The house is much nicer than the photos, with lovely walk-in showers and a spacious living room too. The kitchen is the best feature, with the sliding doors out to the seating area and on to the magnificent view. There is also a ping-pong table inside, in a very cool, stone-floored room, which kept everyone amused when it was too hot outside. Upstairs the master bedroom is very nice, with a lovely shower and small roof terrace with that awesome view again. It was so peaceful, hardly a sound, the perfect place to drink wine, watch the sun go down and relax. Lesley, the owner, was very lovely and we enjoyed chatting and getting to know her. We will definitely be back again. Thank you. Thank you!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Grange from a website we had used before, and liked the pictures and location - but were totally amazed at how wonderful it was in real life. Loads of space, everything you could wish for in a kitchen (for real foodies!) and a beautiful outside space with pool. We WILL be going back!

We booked Moncuquet last summer for a week , the family included our little 4 year old grandchild who just couldn't be persuaded out of the beautiful pool and was permanently wrinkled! Glorious weather, beautiful views and the most unexpectedly wonderful house. Grand designs has nothing on this; stylish, spacious,luminous with every gadget and utensil imaginable in the incredible kitchen. This is not a holiday house this is a luxurious home with every comfort . We were so happy we stayed for an extra week in September and will be returning this year. Thank you Lesley for allowing us to enjoy your fabulous home nestled in the most beautiful region in France,Lot et Garonne.
