Farmhouse | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 10

Le Rouzet is a stone farmhouse and adjoining stone barn, built in the 18th century amid the Quercy countryside and set in a large garden with a swimming pool. The house has been converted to a comfortable four-bedroom property to sleep up to ten guests.

The English family who have owned the property for the last 40 years have furnished and decorated the house comfortably with a combination of antique and modern furniture, an interesting picture collection, and a collection of books, toys and games. The property is surrounded by farmland and is approached up a long winding drive which is shared with the nearby chateau and one other farmhouse.The house and barn overlook a gravelled terrace which enjoys a southerly view over the garden, towards the pool and down the valley. There is a barbecue, a shady pergola, and enough tables for everybody in the house, and several additional guests, to dine comfortably.

The house stands in a hectare (two acres) of mainly lawned gardens with flower beds of of irises and lavender with box hedges and shady walnut trees. In the middle of the garden is the 5 x 10 metre swimming pool.Inside the house, the living room contains a comfy sofa and a TV with a VCR and a DVD player for those occassional wet days. The house has three bedrooms and a bathroom, all on one floor, with store rooms below. One of the bedrooms has a double bed; the others have twin beds. The fourth bedroom is in the barn.

The barn contains the main and very spacious living space, which has an old tiled floor and a high timbered roof. The large stone fireplace is surrounded by three sofas. A short flight of steps leads up to a spacious dining area, where an old refectory table easily seats 10.To one side of the living space is a kitchen, fully equipped with a dishwasher, gas cooker and stovetop, and a large refrigerator, and furnished with breakfast table units and a pine dresser. Steps lead down to a large bedroom with two bunk beds and two single beds, with an adjoining large bathroom. A washing machine is concealed in a cupboard.

The centuries-old house and this ancient region are both full of history. During World War 2, Le Rouzet was used by the French Resistance and was a “safe house” for escaping Allied airmen, who were transported through occupied France to Spain.
