La Loge has been imaginatively converted from a barn, retaining much of the exposed stone and many of the original old beams, to provide quality, comfortable accommodation for four people. The ground floor is tiled throughout with beamed ceilings, whilst the first floor has natural coir flooring apart from the tiled kitchen area.

Following Inspection by Lot Tourisme, the houses have been awarded 3 Stars, which is the highest rating for our type of property.

Situated in its own large Courtyard, which is equipped with dining table and chairs, parasol, reclining loungers and barbeque, La Loge faces south. To one side of the Courtyard is the Bakehouse (with the original Bread Oven restored as a feature), the roof of which extends to provide a shaded dining area. There is a small adjacent field with trees, to which visitors have access.

La Petite Maison (adjacent) is self-contained, providing accommodation for a further two people IF REQUIRED at a cost of £200 per week and is ONLY available if booked in conjunction with La Loge for your friends or family. Rest assured that, if La Petite Maison is not required, it would not be let to others during your stay in order to retain your privacy.

La Loge Features:
The door from the courtyard opens into the entrance hall leading to the bedrooms and the bathroom, which being on the ground floor remain cool during the hot summers. An open-tread staircase leads up to the large, sunny, first floor open-plan living room with fully fitted kitchen, dining area and lounge with comfortable seating. Here you are back at ground level so, from the dining area, double French windows facing west, up across the field, let in the evening sun.

The large kitchen area has fitted limed-oak units with tiled work-surfaces, and is well-equipped with electric oven, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, dishwasher, toaster, coffee-maker, electric kettle, and a corner canopy over a ceramic hob. There are adequate supplies of cooking utensils, attractive crockery, cutlery and glassware, not only for four occupants but also for any visitors you may have. A washing machine and tumble drier are also provided.

The cast iron wood-burning stove is an attractive feature for out-of-season lets. The TV receives Freesat programmes including BBC and ITV as well as French Channels, and there is a DVD/CD Player. Fibre is cabled to La Loge and the Wifi signal is very reliable.

There are two bedrooms with comfortable mattresses and attractive painted furniture. Duvets and UK size pillows are provided, and linen and towels can be supplied at a small extra charge. A cot, high chair and stair-gate are available if required.

Local Attractions

La Garenne is an ideal base for exploring the Lot Valley. We are in the heart of Cahors wine country, in an elevated position, close to the River Lot, and charming market towns of Prayssac, Montcuq and Puy l’Eveque. There is canoeing on the River, Walks from the house, cycling on quiet roads, swimming in the nearby Lake with a sandy beach or in the River which has some small beaches.

The Lot Valley is largely un-spoilt and has so much to offer. Le Vert is the ideal, peaceful location to enjoy a relaxing holiday in this beautiful region and there are many lovely places to visit within easy distance. Lots to see and do, or just relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

The houses occupy an elevated position and are situated on the edge of a hamlet, surrounded by delightful countryside, in the middle of a small farming and wine-producing community.

Le Vert is 3 kms from the village of Sauzet where there is a Boulangerie, General Store, Restaurant and Bar, Post Office and Doctor. For more shops and the Farmers’ Friday Market, Prayssac is just 20 minutes away, beside the River Lot. Cahors, only 14 miles to the east with its tree-lined Boulevard and pavement cafes, is the historic capital of the Lot Department and is famous for its fortified bridge, medieval town and domed Cathedral. Twenty minutes to the north-west is Puy l’Eveque, an attractive medieval town on a promontory overlooking the Lot river and reflected in its calm waters. To the south, ten minutes away by car, Montcuq is a little country town with a colourful Market on Sunday mornings.

Places to Visit:

St Cirq Lapopie (on the River east of Cahors) is one of the most beautiful villages of France and is a must, either by road or pleasure boat.

Lauzerte, just south of Montcuq, is a Bastide with arcaded Square at the top of the village and wonderful views as well as a choice of Restaurants and Bars.

Moissac, to the south of Montcuq, has a beautiful Abbey and Cloisters, which were recently classed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is on the Canal du Midi (between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic), and joins into the Garonne River at this point.

Rocamadour, spectacularly cling to the cliffs, is the second most visited Site in France.

Pech-Merle has superb 20,000 year old Cave Paintings.

Padirac is one of the largest chasms in Europe with its caves and subterranean boat trips.

Beynac, La Roque Gageac and Domme on the Dordogne River, about 40 miles north of Le Vert. If you have time, a deviation to the medieval centre of Sarlat is well worth a visit.

Albi has a magnificent Cathedral and the Toulouse Lautrec Museum.
