Belmontet, Lot

A green and pleasant haven near the Lot valley with big gardens and pool for groups of friends or families; near Cahors


7 beds


5 bedrooms


Sleeps 10


Barrel down a long verdant drive beneath swishing trees to a much-loved traditional pale stone farmhouse and separate gîte. Hans and Debbie have poured their hearts into making this a relaxed, sociable home-from-home. It’s light and airy with high ceilings above and brushed concrete underfoot (heated!). Rustle up lunches and suppers in the sleek kitchen, you can chop and chat at the same time, then envelop yourself on squishy sofas in front of the open fire or stay out late on the terrace. Bedrooms are restful, the master has a private terrace, and although the twin in the gîte lacks the homely feel of the main house, when used as an overspill, the whole place is perfect for parties of up to 10. Resting in a shallow green bowl, without a neighbour in sight, the view of meadows and woods radiating out is pleasingly tranquil; there’s an expanse of grassy lawn and a large pool neatly tucked away. Montcuq is close for supplies and lake swimming, the Lot and all its watery delights is 15 minutes away while Cahors is a half hour drive and has a good market twice weekly.

Our stay at Haute Fage was most enjoyable and relaxing with friends and young children. Set in the lovely countryside near Tournon-D'Agenais, Montcuq, Montaigu-de-Quercy, and Lauzerte, the house is quiet and very well provided with everything to make our stay a success. The pool was just right for young children, and the gardens extensive. There were lovely walks among the sunflowers and ready access to Chateaux and wine tasting venues. The owners and the French point of contact were most helpful. We thoroughly recommend this lovely house.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Hans & Debbie

  • We have a wealth of historic hilltop towns within 20 minutes drive - Montcuq, Lauzerte, Tournon D'agenais and Montague de Quercy each very individual and with thriving weekly markets, cafes, galleries and broncantes to wander around.
  • On the way to Montcuq, less than ten minutes away, one can find the most beautiful, azure blue swimming lake with its own small beach and in the summer months a cafe too.
  • Cahor, half an hour away lies along the river Lot - this very elegant historic town where one can spend a day perusing the shops set in interesting alleyways with their half timbered buidings and its fine medieval bridge and imposing cathedral.
  • A real must is a visit to Saint Cirq Lapopie, perched high on a cliff. Busy in the summer months, but a truly stunning drive along the Lot from Cahors to this gem of a village - reputed to be one of France's most beautiful.
  • If you're feeling a little energetic, then one can hire canoes to paddle along the Lot from a number of places. Slightly further away is the stunning cave , Gouffre de Padirac, with its underground river, gorge and huge cavern.
  • If you love your red wines - then the local vineyards growing the famous Malbec grapes will offer plenty of opportunities to sample this deep red nectar
