Overview

About the property

House in Montaigu De Quercy, Tarn Et Garonne, France. Peaceful, Pretty Panoramic Views, Large Terraced Garden & 'Cave'

This pretty 400 year old Quercy house, like a hawk’s nest, has stunning panoramic views across the beautiful valley. The house is on four different levels with over an acre and a half of land. The garden, with its boules pitch, cave and rock pool, will keep you fit, as will the two mountain bikes and, of course, the swimming pool. There are many things to do in the surrounding area but if you prefer to relax, the house offers privacy and tranquility. Guests can sit on the large terrace whilst overlooking the pretty tear-drop shaped swimming pool, eating, drinking and relaxing accompanied by that wonderful view. On clear nights you will also be treated to a magnificent view of the solar system and Milky Way.

About Juliette Jackson

We are an English family who love France! We're lucky enough to have La Dournie for holidays but would love to share it with others who enjoy French food, wine, markets, countryside, sunshine, peace and tranquility. Our charming house is very old but is very comfortable and welcoming. We hope you like it as much as we do!

Juliette Jackson purchased this house in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Juliette, We have been extremely remiss in not having taken time before now to thank you for our wonderful holiday in Montaigu. It was a really lovely gite, very comfortable, well located and with a most arresting view. It was generally quiet and what noise there was tended to be agricultural, about which no-one could object. The local restaurants were very good and Roquecor and Lauzerte simply beautiful. I particularly enjoyed early morning swims in the lake, early enough never to find anyone to take my money! The weather was, for the most part, very warm, with not so very many poor days. Thank you for having sent the deposit so promptly. It's certainly a property I would happliy recommend to anyone. Best wishes, Stephen

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: This pretty 400 year old Quercy house, like a hawk’s nest, has stunning panoramic views across the beautiful valley. The house is on four different levels with over an acre and a half of land. The garden, with its boules pitch, cave and rock pool, will keep you fit, as will the mountain bikes and, of course, the swimming pool, which is alarmed. La Dournie is not really suitable for children under the age of 6 or for the people with walking difficulties and it is essential to have one adult by the pool at all times when minors are present. There are many things to do in the surrounding area but if you prefer to relax, the house offers privacy and tranquility. Guests can sit on the large terrace whilst overlooking the pretty tear-drop shaped swimming pool, eating, drinking and relaxing accompanied by that wonderful view. On clear nights you will also be treated to a magnificent view of the solar system and Milky Way. Outside: There is a large terrace overlooking the beautiful tear-shaped pool, which is built out from the hillside below. Because there is a sheer drop on one side of the pool to the garden, it is essential that adults are present at all times with children. The pool measures 9mx4m and goes from 1m to 1.6m in depth, with a patio and seating to one side. Steps lead down to the garden below. The terraced garden has a boules pitch (a boules set is provided) and an exquisite cave and pond where you can watch the frogs and newts in the shade. As with the pool, we stress that children should be supervised at all times when near the cave The terrace area has seating for 10, one big table, two large wooden parasols and a Barbeque. There are a number of sun loungers We also offer two new adult-sized mountain bikes (and one helmet)for guests to enjoy. There is parking for 3 cars. Utility Room: The utility room leads from the lower bathroom out to the pool area. There is a washing machine and drying area. Ironing facilities and hoover are available. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: Fresh bedlinen and bathroom towels are included (pool towels are not provided). Linen is changed weekly. The property is cleaned ready on your arrival and it should be left as you found it. Extra cleaning can be provided. Other: La Dournie is a rambling old house with a great deal of rustic charm, ancient, thick stone walls, large wooden beams and tiled flooring. It is comfortably furnished and has many individual touches to enjoy, such as candles, jigsaws and board games.
