Located on the peaceful streets of the historic bastide village of Montaigu de Quercy, the gentle pace of French village life is literally on your doorstep, and this includes a short walk to the local boulangerie for the freshest and most delicious bread and croissants. The village also has a good selection of amenities including several restaurants and bars all within walking distance, tennis courts and a water park with beach area, bars and other activities. All this is complemented by an active programme of events and an excellent and busy market every Saturday.
The houses are both heated, and are available all the year round, so Festive Season gatherings could be especially appropriate.
Montaigu de Quercy is at the junction of two larger roads, and thus is an ideal place to be located to explore the wonderful countryside of South West Quercy with plenty to offer all the family.
The Owners say...
"Forget all those arguments about who's driving to get the croissants or back from dinner! The houses are calm, yet everything is on the doorstep; baker, butcher, supermarket, newsagent, nice restaurants, café bars, markets and summer events."

As a medieval bastide settlement, at the top of the hill there is a fortified medieval village, with streets of timbered houses leading to a square, and tremendous views from the fortifications across the glorious countryside beyond. Other similar villages in the area are Penne d'Agenais, Tournon d'Agenais and Lauzerte, which is listed in the 'Plus Beaux Villages de France'
Other history abounds, with Roman activity at Cahors and Villeneuve sur Lot, and as you travel the area you will be sure to marvel at the landscapes that unfold, with usually a bastide village or a large chateau in view.
Montaigu de Quercy has its own water park, based on a lake just outside the village where there is a large sandy beach area with lifeguard patrolled (in season) safe swimming, boat and pedalo hire, zip wires across the lake, bars and a restaurant.
The town is in the centre of an area of food production with a range of products to be seen as you travel around: Soft Fruit, sunflowers, nuts and vegetables will be seen growing along with vineyards and more traditional farm crops. Many of these, both raw and prepared, and other artisan products are available at the weekly markets held in most large villages and towns every week: Montaigu de Quercy has its market on a Saturday, as does Lauzerte. Tournon d'Agenais is on Friday evening, and Penne d'Agenais on a Sunday (at Port Penne, by the bridge over the river) A fuller list of markets is found under The Area at the top of this page.
There are several good restaurants in and around Montaigu de Quercy, and generally offer good food at excellent prices. Several are within walking distance of Domane de Boucherie, so pleasant evenings can be enjoyed without having to nominate a driver.
Some are linked to in the Links page on the top menu.
The area has several wineries, mainly to the north towards the River Lot, part of the Cahors AOC, and many wineries are open for tastings and direct sales: Please see the Lot Valley tourist information site link on the Links page for a full list.
