This bright and spacious stone cottage is set in a beautifully-preserved farming hamlet in rugged Quercy, an authentic part of France with fewer tourists
Kim lives nearby and will welcome you with a drink and some local cheese; she can have dinner waiting for you if you wish but you’re completely independent. The open-plan living area is a great place to hang out in bad weather: grand piano, TV, board games and books; outside, find a private sitting area with a hot tub, barbecue and firepit – plus a swimming pool, sauna and steam room.
It’s a lovely walk to Caylus – about an hour on foot, for shops and a boulangerie –or borrow one of Kim’s bikes. Explore medieval villages, hike or walk in the surrounding countryside, Toulouse and Albi are about 1.5 hours’ drive away.
