PRICE REDUCTION OUR VENDORS ARE MOTIVATED TO SELL THIS MUCH LOVED HOLIDAY HOME comprising a three bedroom HOUSE, SWIMMING POOL with telescopic cover, COTTAGE for renovation and garden with gorgeous VIEWS. The owners are reluctantly selling after many years of enjoying their summers there.
The property is located in a quiet corner of the Lot, on the edges of Quercy, one of France's ancient Occitane provinces, among wooded hills.The farmhouse is south facing and built of stone, with an open aspect, a wealth of exposed beams, a lovely sun-trap terrace and the 8mx4m swimming pool with telescopic cover or 'abri' in French.
The principal house comprises 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, large salon, dining room, kitchen, a workshop and 2 cellars(caves).The large garden is mainly down to grass plus it has walnut, cherry and other mature trees and shrubs. Because the property is used as a holiday home the gardens have been designed to be low maintenance.The adjoining small stone cottage is included in the sale and is seen as a potential development opportunity, either as a gite or as a means of extending the farmhouse.Although used as a second home by present owners, and ideal for family holidays, it could also make a permanent home and has income potential because of the cottage.
ABOUT THE AREA
The property is situated 2km from the pretty village of Cardaillac which has a wide range of amenities including a boulangerie. It is also 7km from the large Roman/medieval town of Figeac. Access to the property is straightforward; it is 20 mins from Figeac train station, 30 mins from the A20 and 6 hrs drive from Paris. International airports are at Rodez [1 hr] and Toulouse [2 hrs].
The department of the Lot and neighbouring departments offer many opportunities for summer activities. You will find not just popular tourist sites but many gastronomic, musical and religious venues and events.
Figeac, an ancient town, has a substantial heritage in particular - Roman artifacts, medieval buildings and connections with the town's famous son Champollion, who de-coded the Rosetta Stone. Figeac is also a popular visitor destination for its large, weekly farmers’ market and street café style.
Further afield, the valleys of the Lot and Dordogne rivers to the south and west offer many activities for all ages and energies, whereas the hill/mountain country of the north and east provide widespread opportunities for walking and climbing, and more waterways to explore.
