Gite Mirabel offers high quality spacious accommodation in a very peaceful situation a good distance off a small country road. An elevated situation gives some stunning views of the rolling Quercy countryside east of Lauzerte.
Accommodating 4 people in a double bedroom and a twin bedroom, Gite Mirabel is ideal for a couple or small family wanting quality accommodation with exclusive use of the swimming pool and outdoor space in a glorious countryside location. The panoramic picture in the Gallery below is the view from the end of the garden near the entrance to the property.
Although Gite Mirabel is in the grounds of the Owner's house, great care has been taken to offer Guests the maximum of privacy, with screens and hedges appropriately placed. The Owners offer Guests exclusive use of the swimming pool and terrace which is not overlooked.
Leaving the small country road, the drive is around 100m long, and there is ample parking for 2 cars.
Double doors open into the Open plan GROUND FLOOR which has an attractive tiled floor throughout
At one end a well equipped KITCHEN area includes a gas hob and electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and washing machine, along with a good range of utensils. A feature is the tremendous worktop area and storage space, making Gite Mirabel suitable for longer stays.
A large DINING table for four people occupies the centre of the room, and at the other end there is a LOUNGE area with comfortable seating and a wood burner.
There is no television installed, but wifi is good for this area (up to 4mb) and streaming news, films and music is rarely a problem.
There are also electric radiators for supplementary heating, and all the windows have shutters to keep the heat in or out as may be required.
Sturdy easy stairs lead to the first floor.

Immediately outside the door shown in Bedroom 2 is a private terrace under an arbour with honeysuckle and grapes growing on it. This is screened from the Owners house by a high hedge but is open onto the private lawn and garden belonging to Gite Mirabel.

For walkers, the famous Route de St Jacques de Compostela passes the entrance to the property, about 120m from Gite Mirabel.
The area around Gite Mirabel is renowned for food and drink, and locally there are many hectares of soft fruit orchards. You will also see nut groves and fields of melons alongside traditional cereal crops and sunflowers.
It is a great location for wine lovers, being within close proximity of the fine Chasselas grape area around Moissac, a little to the west, and the heartland of the Cahors red wine AOC a little to the north.
There are numerous wineries open for tasting and direct sales, and produce is always available at the local markets which will be found somewhere near on every day of the week.
The area is dotted with interesting villages which all have interesting buildings and stories to tell: Many guests after a Saturday arrival head to the Sunday market at Montcuq where the early visitors all speak French, yet after about 10h00 all the conversation is in English! Other popular villages nearby include Lauzerte, Cazes Mondenard and Castelnau Montratier.
A 'must visit' on every Guest's list in this area is the UNESCO World Heritage Site at the Abbey and Cloisters of St Peter at Moissac with Norman and Roman features in a wonderful setting near the River Tarn. The river also offers great opportunities for fishing and other water based recreation.
No visit to the area around Moissac is complete without a visit to the viewpoint at Boudou with a panoramic view including the confluence of the Tarn and Garonne, the Garonne canal and miles across the vale of the Garonne, with the snow topped Pyrenees also visible on clear days.
The city of Toulouse is within an hour's drive, and has strong connections with the food industry as well as being a city of technology and aerospace. It also has a deep history, being at a strategic river crossing and meeting point, so all will find something of interest here.
