South West France countryside villa — Maison Lotoise is a delightful farmhouse built in the local Quercy stone — a spacious and comfortable holiday home with light, bright rooms and furnished in a cosy contemporary style. The villa is set on the edge of a hamlet yet is private and wonderfully peaceful, as you would expect in this idyllic corner of rural south-west France. If you are looking for tranquillity you will really enjoy relaxing on the large covered veranda that overlooks the pool and landscaped gardens, with their lovely backdrop of mature oak trees.
Maison Lotoise is in an enviable position on the edge of three départements and therefore central to everything this appealing region has to offer, with easy access to the many tourist attractions of the Lot, Tarn et Garonne, Aveyron valley and Dordogne. This beautiful and varied landscape encompasses forested hills and valleys, dramatic river cliffs and rolling farmland. Throughout the Lot and Quercy region there are numerous charming villages, some on hilltops with magnificent views. The area is of course famous for its local produce, which you will find in abundance at the weekly markets in the nearby bastide village of Montcuq and Montaigu de Quercy.
You will be spoilt for choice with things to do during your holiday at this South West France countryside villa: boating, water sports, parachuting and mountain biking are all available.

There is a swimming lake with sandy beaches and playground near Montcuq and another one near Montaigu, where there are also pedaloes.
