bul house06 15webWell modernised throughout, and with a high spec kitchen and master ensuite bathroom recently installed, the accommodation is well maintained and of a high standard throughout.  The house is also fully heated for out of season letting.

An adjacent barn with table tennis and pool tables offers extra entertainment, and bicycles are also provided for guests to explore the gently undulating countryside around the area on quiet country roads.

Le Bulidou overlooks open countryside, and is in 1 ha (2.5acres) of land so space inside or out is never a problem: Trees provide shade at all times. The swimming pool is a natural sun trap and is well equipped with poolside furniture. There is also an al fresco dining area beside the pool with a large gas barbecue.

Accommodation - up to 12 people in 5 bedrooms

Arriving at Le Bulidou, you get to the end of the road where there is a large hard standing area between the House and the Barn with parking and turning space for several cars.

The house throughout has exposed timbers and furniture which is light in colour, and has been decorated in light and pastel colours giving a very bright and airy feel.

The main door to the House leads into the open plan Kitchen/Dining room. The kitchen has recently been completely remodelled and upgraded, and provides high spec kitchen equipment including a large ceramic hob, double combination oven/grill/microwave, large American style Fridge Freezer complete with ice maker and water chiller and a good range of utensils and equipment for dining indoors and outdoors.All worktops are easy to clean marble, and with no wall units, there is a feeling of tremendous space throughout. As a bonus, windows face east and south so there is always plenty of light.

The main dining table seats 12 easily, and there is also a television linked to the satellite system through which television or music can be played.

Around the area

landscape3Le Bulidou is in the centre of an area of great natural beauty, and, besides its own gorgeous setting, you will not have to go far to find great landscapes as you drive.

With quiet roads all around, cycle rides make a pleasant alternative way to explore the countryside.

The area is full of small charming villages and hamlets, most without shops or bars, but generally retain the flavour of rural France. The larger villages and towns are listed in the general area information, the nearest being Lauzerte and Montaigu de Quercy which are both medieval hilltop bastide villages with narrow streets, medieval timbered houses and spectacular views from the ancient stone walls. 

cyclesunflMontaigu de Quercy has a water park with a large beach area, pedalo hire, zip wires and tennis court together with restaurants and bars - a day at the seaside inland. Water activities will also be found all along the River Lot, a short drive away, with Penne D'Agenais and Fumel the nearest points at which the river will be accessed. 

The area abounds in produce of all kinds - The Cahors AOC wine area is just to the north, and as you travel around you will see a wide variety of produce being grown - sunflowers and cereals, soft fruit, vegetables, nuts and much more. Many of these products will be found in the markets which are usually held on the same day of the week in the villages, and a list of these is also in the general area information.

Both Lauzerte and Montaigu de Quercy have a selection of restaurants offering local produce and more traditional favourites: Some of these are listed on the Links page above.

Local attractions suitable for younger members of the party are listed in The Area information at the top of this page.
