Liberte is a child-free haven of tranquility aimed at those who really want to be in a tranquil environment benefiting from a mix of total relaxation and stimulating visits or just one or the other. Some people never leave the house and others are out all the time! Liberte is a large old Quercy stone farmhouse that has been lovingly and stylishly restored, retaining traditional features but providing all mod cons. Liberte is a high quality gite classified with the highest ranking available at the local tourist office . Tree is the principal part of the house, on the first floor with 3 en suite bedrooms and spacious living area. Your occupation of Tree would be as sole residents with the owner on hand in an apartment downstairs. There are 3 further 2 person gites but these are never let out at the same time as Tree. The farmhouse is set in 6 peaceful acres of formal gardens, deck areas, courtyard, woodlands and meadows. However, it isn't isolated, it's just 20 minutes drive from Cahors (& motorway A20 from Paris and Toulouse). Cahors is a big bustling market town and has good access to airports. Lalbenque and Limognes are our local villages (10mins in the car). Those villages also offer food shops, cafés and restaurants. We are 20 mins from the stunning mediaeval hillside village of St Cirq Lapopie with beautiful galleries, shops and restaurants. The whole area offers a wealth of fascinating visits and outings as well as any number of sporting activities - fantastic walking, cycling, canoeing and horse-riding.

In the grounds and gardens, there is ample choice of areas to relax in. The south-garden and the new deck with loungers by the summer kitchen are perfect for sun-bathing and relaxing, good quality sun-loungers, parasols and a choice of 3 outside dining areas are available as well as dining in the apartment. The area is ideal for walkers, cyclists, horse-riders, canoeists, historians, geologists, gardeners, philosophers, lovers of good food an and a deck terrace leading from the kitchen with lovely views. Come to Liberte....Relax, unwind, be sporty, eat, drink and be merry, be touristy...or any combination of the above! The wow factor here is tranquility, luxury, a home from home in a still-unspoiled corner of France.

The Midi-Pyrénées region

The Lot is still a pretty much undiscovered area in comparison to the Dordogne which is a little further north. The countryside remains very much as it was about a hundred years ago. Cahors, a mediaeval town, and its surrounding area offer a wealth of activities and tourist attractions. The Lot river is also a great river for canoeing. You are advised to visit tourist offices in the area to make the most of the region. They are very helpful and well stocked with ideas and brochures for what to do. On the other hand you may just have come to relax and not move around too much - and Liberte is just the place to do that..

Cahors

Cremps is a small rural village (population 320), set on a hilltop in the Causses du Quercy region of the Lot. Liberté is a lovingly restored traditional stone farmhouse set in 6 acres of wood and meadow 2 kms outside of Cremps.

The house and gardens have been specifically designed to lend themselves to a happy balance of enjoying private time and socialising. Give yourself time to relax, read your book, chat or snooze.

By choice we don't have a pool. So it is a blissfully tranquil, peaceful environment but certainly not too "precious" to have fun in! River beaches, excellent pools and tennis courts are available nearby for you.A wealth of fascinating day trips and outings await you! Enjoy the wine, the food and the company in a corner of France that remains pretty much as it was a century ago.Yet you find yourself just 20 minutes drive from the modern conveniences of our nearby bustling market town, Cahors.There is a wide cultural and musical programme throughout the summer season, details of which are available in the tourist information packet at Liberté, including the Cahors Blues Festival (July).

There are several attractive villages and towns surrounding Liberté (Limogne, St Cirq Lapopie, Lalbenque, to name but a few), making it an adventure to experience the local culture, with food markets in abundance on several days of the week.

The area is ideal for walkers, cyclists, horse-riders, canoeists, historians, geologists, gardeners, philosophers, lovers of good food and wine, and those of you who are simply happy to relax and unwind or any combination of the above!

Chateaux, gardens, caves, adventure parks, museums, galleries and quality shops abound so you are never short of something interesting to occupy you in-between relaxing days in the sunny garden. After a mild and short winter with sparkling frosts and crisp, sunny, blue-sky days (OK it does also rain sometimes!) Spring generally kicks off on March 1 just after the wild violets bloom in February. April and May bring wild irises, plum and cherry blossoms. June, July and August, the rose, lavender, sunflowers and wisteria are in full and colourful bloom and it's the season of village fêtes every weekend with dancing and music! The warm weather generally goes on well into autumn which is full of deep and luscious purples and browns, vivid oranges and yellows dotted with bright and fiery reds - for some (the vineyard owners) the best time of year!

The Lot is a great place any time of the year really. Please take the time to visit Amanda Lawrence's newsletter "The Quercy Diary" to read her evocative jottings about the charms of the local area through the seasons.
