About Kristen Sandahl

I have been the Danish owner of this house since 1996. It represents my dream of a French property. My wife and I spend a lot of time there and have been keen on

bringing the house back to the original form combined with gentle modernising. We love the area with the multiple choices of landscapes, picturesque villages and wonderful restaurants.

You will find my book - translated from Danish to English: "Places to eat in and around Cahors" in the house and in some restaurants/bookshops.

I am convinced that you will enjoy a stay in my house and the surroundings.

Salutations cordiales

Kristen is a wonderful host. His house is huge - and it has all of the comforts of home. Lots of rooms with comfortable beds, and a large kitchen fully stocked with appliances.

The village has markets twice a week; and we enjoyed a great wine/food tasting fete during our stay in August. It is also a great base for exploring Cahors, Montauban & Toulouse, too.

Highly recommended!

David, Erika & family

French at it's very best

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful house a sunny week in July 2015, and we dream of going back! Our big family had plenty of space, a bedroom for the teenager, one for the parents and the upstairs playroom/sleepingroom, where our two tweens stayed. The house is newly restorated, the terrace is lovely, and Castelnau-Montratier is a very charming village, that had everything we needed, and it goes without saying that we recommend this lovely house to everybody who loves France and who has no need of a million other tourists in the neighbourhood.

French old-world (à la Cotswolds+ sun and wine)

  • 5 of 5

A dream of French delights - our second stay, first in June 2014 and again in September 2015.

The house is a beautiful ancient town- house high above the valley and perfectly set in a cosy, quiet street peeping onto the church. Immaculately restored, every mod con - could have a perfect holiday just in the house itself. The village is friendly and charming, good eating places where you're a remembered guest after the first meal. The surroundings are terrific - rolling countryside, lovely villages, good walks, everything within reach. Easy access to bigger towns, museums, markets, prehistoric grottos - you name it. We'd like to keep the place a secret - but it's a family house to be enjoyed by others. The owner seems to like guests, too! Nice. There's also the owner's recently published good-eating guide to local restaurants waiting in the house for you...

Très beau séjour dans cette magnifique maison meublée avec beaucoup de goût et très accueillante

  • 5 of 5

La maison est très propre et meublée avec goût. J’ai apprécié la qualité du wifi, la vue depuis la chambre et la terrasse, ses murs en pierre si respectueux du charme et de l’architecture de ce beau village. Située en centre ville, très proche des commerces, parking à proximité et gentillesse du propriétaire, je recommande vivement cette magnifique maison.
