The property sits on 13 hectares of agricultural land in south-western France known as Quercy. The region is much like the English Cotswolds and dotted with charming villages. Farmers surround us. Small villages are close by and we are but 30 minutes away from busy (and interesting) market towns---Cahors, Caussade, Montauban, Moissac, Lauzerte, and an hour and a bit from Toulouse. Sarlat, Gourdon, Rocamadour are about two hours to the north in the Dordogne. Bordeaux is less than two hours to the west. The house, recently renovated, is built from Quercy stone. It consists of two bedrooms, a salon with a wood-burning stove, dining room, large kitchen, toilet, and bathroom with shower and bath. Satellite television, DVD and Wifi are available. Since the house is separate from the main house you would be welcome to stay some days before and after the house sit term. An adorable border collie is on the property but will stay with the owner in the nearby house and a few semi retired chickens and ducks. (Help yourself to the eggs and produce from the garden.) The garden is a splash of colour during most of the year and a delight to wander around. September/october are pretty months: still warm but with golden leaves on the trees. (Spring comes early here in the southwest france. Birds compete with farmers and fauna and flora wake up from their winter sleep.) The house caring dates are flexible and negotiable but should start around 20 september2019 and continue throuh to 10 ocrober, 2019.
