Lauzerte, Tarn-et-Garonne, Occitanie
Our old Quercy Blanc stone built gite and pottery is located in a tranquil, rural location in the beautiful Tarn et Garonne region of S.W. France.
The area has much to offer, rolling hills, medieval villages to explore, local markets and music festivals. Nearby Lauzerte is listed as one of the 'plus beaux villages de France'.
Our pretty and well equipped two bedroomed (one bedroom is a large open mezzanine) gite has a 10 x 5 metre private pool heated by solar panels overlooking stunning views of the Seoune Valley. We have covered terraces for alfresco dining, a summer house overlooking the pool with table tennis. BBQ and boules. Perfect for a relaxing holiday.
Boulangeries, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and lakeside beaches are all within a ten minute drive.

Interaction with guests
On arrival you will find a welcome pack of essential provisions for your first evening, fresh milk, bread, tea, coffee, sugar etc. The owners Bruce Balsom and English potter Daphne Garritt, live on site all year round and are available to assist, and guests are welcome to visit the pottery workshop. The site allows us to give guests total privacy, so that you have the best of both worlds. Although this is deepest rural France, recently our area obtained fibre optic broadband and we now enjoy a surprisingly good internet service . In 2019 we are installing both washing machine and dishwasher for our guests convenience.

About the neighbourhood
The area is steeped in history, the English Kings ruled the Quercy Blanc area until the hundred year wars.
Lauzerte is not only one of the most beautiful villages in France set in breathtaking scenery . In and around lived Cathars until the fourteenth century. Whilst the crusades against the Cathars lasted twenty years 1209 - 1229, here they were finally eliminated over a hundred years later.
The most used language for many hundreds of years was Occitane, now used as the primary language (Catalan) in the Spanish region of Catalonia.

How to get there
Airport: Toulouse or Bergerac: 96.0 km
Railway: Agen: 35.0 km
Ferry: San Sebastian: 395.0 km
Many guests prefer to drive down (no restriction on your wine)
Visitors often use the Chunnel and if they are coming from northern England make an overnight stop perhaps near Rouen although many of our friends drive down in a day.
Portsmouth to St Malo is a delightful lovernight crossing. St Malo is about six hours to our property. Portsmouth to Caen is ok the journey from Caen is about an hour longer. Cruise down to Sans Sebastian as part of your holiday, it is our nearest port about a four hour drive.
Flying to Bergerac a small airport, is a good option as many U.K. local airports use it.
Toulouse Airport is conveniently close to the ring road and the motorway westwards towards us, however do remember Toulouse is a large modern city.
Both of these airports are approximately an hour...
