Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Situated on the top of a hill with views over surrounding countryside and sunflower fields, Fournou is ideal for those who like walking, cycling or exploring but equally suits those who just like lying by the pool in the sun with a good book and no neighbours to disturb the peace.
Imagine a typical French farmhouse with beamed ceilings, inglenook fireplace and stone walls, and you have Fournou farmhouse. With 3 good sized, beautifully furnished bedrooms (1 double and 1 twin on the first floor and 1 king size room on the lower ground floor) and 2 bathrooms (one on the first floor and one on the lower ground floor), a large living/dining area and fully fitted well-equipped kitchen (with dishwasher, microwave and modern range-style oven) plus a laundry room with washing machine and tumble drier, there is plenty of room for 6 people. We can also provide further beds if required for up to 2 more children plus a double sprung sofa bed in the lounge*. All beds are made up ready for your arrival so you can get straight down to the pool. For the little ones, we can also provide stair-gates, cots and cot linen, high chairs and booster seats on request.

The Midi-Pyrenees region
The Lot departement of France is less well-known that its neighbour, the Dordogne, but no less picturesque and charming.
The excellent weather in the region means that in high summer fields of bright yellow sunflowers and purple lavender abound and, of course, it is ideal for vines which yield the Cahors 'black' wine as well as numerous fruity rosé wines.
Every week from June to September you can attend a fête where local produce is consumed in convivial surroundings with locals and tourists alike accompanied by live music and dancing - great for folk of all ages.
Activities available in the area include horse-riding, golf, fishing, even hang-gliding and hot air ballooning.
Fournou is situated midway between Cahors and Montcuq and sits on a hill with views of the surrounding countryside.
All who come to Fournou love the tranquility, the privacy and the feeling of being in the countryside whilst still being close to 'civilisation'.
