About Robert and Alison
Originally from Herefordshire we fell in love with this beautiful area and it's lovely people on a visit and purchased a holiday home here. Within a year we had relocated permanently. We have recently bought a second property in the Lot where we live and which we are currently renovating.
Robert and Alison purchased this Farmhouse in 2003
Why Robert and Alison chose Saint-Amans-de-Pellagal
We bought this gem of a property because of its amazing location and outstanding views along the valley. It is a delight to sit in the garden and observe the many miles of countryside..
What makes this Farmhouse unique
You can sit on the terrace and see for miles.

The perfect holiday
The house (Blasi) and setting were beautiful and perfect - exactly as described and what we needed. Our hosts - Robert and Alison -were wonderful and very attentive to our needs from the time we booked the house to now that we have returned home. As we arrived, they welcomed us to the house and gave us a tour. They also had prepared a folder of what sites to visit, recommended restaurants, daily markets, etc. This was very helpful to us as we were not familiar with the region. They later even provided us with another list separated by distance from the house. We saw beautiful sites and enjoyed great meals. The close proximity to Lauzerte (15 mn) was perfect - not only for shopping for food, pastries, beverages, but also for very good restaurants, and enjoying an afternoon cocktail in the square of the medieval town. Fresh linens and towels were provided weekly. Robert and Alison even went out of their way to help us solve a problem with our car. We have rented homes in the past in Costa Rica and Spain and although we enjoyed ourselves there as well, we have to say that our experience at Blasi has surpassed all others. Just as important as our hosts' attention to our comfort was the fact that now we feel that we have made new friends - they are both very easy to talk to and are caring people. We very highly recommend this house and our hosts - we are certain that no one will leave disappointed. This vacation was made very special by Robert and Alison. Tx you!
Thank you for your kind words. It was a pleasure to meet you .
A lovely relaxing and comfortable holiday with family and friends
Blasi Farmhouse is perfectly positioned in a quiet rural location with fabulous views over the valley while having shops and restaurants within easy driving distance.
The house itself is fully equipped and comfortable and both Alison and Robert are charming and helpful.
We first stayed at Blasi in 2017 for 1 week and enjoyed it so much we booked for 3 weeks in 2018 and will certainly return again.
Thank you for your review. We are so glad you had such a good stay and it is great that you have booked to come back again next year.

Great location, stunning views!
We booked Blasi for 2 weeks in August 2018 and it was ideal for our group which was extended family for one week and then two families for the second.
The property is beautifully situated with great views across the valley, a lovely and secure pool area, and all the space and facilities you need for spending all your time outside.
Inside has been thoughtfully converted with 2 kitchens and lounge areas and always feels spacious even for a large group. It is also exceptionally well stocked not only with what is needed such as crockery and linen, but also books, games, childrens toys, MP3 speakers etc.
It should be noted that the 2 downstairs bedrooms have air conditioning, but the 2 upstairs bedrooms do not. We were 2 families sharing the property, so one family was upstairs and one family was downstairs (so we were next to our kids).
There were several standing fans upstairs and clear instructions on how to keep the house cool, but it did get very warm upstairs in the evening. It was a very hot week to be fair. The one improvement to the property would be additional aircon units in the upstairs bedrooms.
Lauzerte is beautiful and only 10 mins away with a good supermarket and local shops.
You have a good choice of larger towns within 30 mins (e.g. Moissac and Cahors) for anything else you could think of, and quick acces to the motoroway network for any longer journeys.
There was no shortage of things to do in the local area and Robert and Alison have provided a personalised local guide with recommendations. They also were very helpful with any queries or questions while we were there.
An excellent venue for a relaxing and fun family holiday but also as base for day trips to the surrounding towns, with plenty of interest to see.
I’m sure we will return again one day soon!
A great Christmas holiday with family
Our family in France joined us at Blasi for Christmas. The owners were very helpful and considerate including putting up a Christmas tree with decorations as well as other decorations. There was plenty of space and rooms etc for everyone. The heating and log fire worked well and kept us warm when it became chilly on a few occasions. As expected supermarkets were open on Christmas Eve, early Boxing Day but not on New Years Day. Lauzerte and Moissac were quiet but Cahors had more shops and restaurants open.
So we had a really good time at Blasi. A really tranquil spot not too far from the main towns and villages. We also managed a few good walks as well as playing outside with the grandchildren. There was always the satellite TV and DVD player to keep youngsters (and adults) entertained. While most will come in the spring and summer I would recommend Blasi in the winter. The historic sites and medieval towns and villages are still worth visiting at this time of the year. The owners helpfulness also made the stay so much easier and nicer
Dear David. Thank you for your review. We are so glad you and your family enjoyed Christmas at Blasi .We feel the countryside is just as lovely in winter and it is a perfect time of year for walking and cycling. We hope to see you again sometime. Happy New Year to you all. Robert and Alison
Peaceful and tranquil yet within easy reach of shops and restaurants and with fabulous views, Blasi is well equipped and very comfortable.
We'll be back for sure.
Thank you for your review and also for booking again next year . We look forward to seeing you next summer.

A stunning villa in a stunning setting. The wonderful escape for family fun and relaxation.
An amazing villa that catered perfectly for our family of 3 generations. Lots of space for quiet time and taking in the beautiful views and also good provisions for kids and grown ups wanting fun and games. The pool was fabulous and very needed with the hot weather. The owners have really thought of everything you would need on arrival and during your stay and were very attentive from the moment of booking, answering all our queries and questions. It was especially nice to actually meet them during our stay. We would recommend this Villa to any family or large group looking for a relaxing break in a beautiful part of France.
Thank you for posting a review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Blasi and hope to see you again

The property is situated in open countryside in a small hamlet between Miramont de Quercy and Lauzerte , midway between Agen and Cahors. With vineyards, orchards and woodland it is a truly beautiful spot.
It is within easy reach of the Lot and Gorges of Averyon. Nearby Lauzerte is listed as one of the most beautiful villages in France and is also a stopping place on the famous pilgrims route to Santiago de Compostella.
Only 10 minutes away from the Lot, wine tasting is easy and fun.
Although inland there are sandy beaches and water slides at the nearby parc de loisir at Montcuq and Miramont de Quercy which also have superb markets.
Golf: Near by there is 9 hole golf course at Sauveterre, of 5244 metres in a wooded valley with water hazards and it is suitable for players of all standards. The owner is very friendly and clubs can be hired for the day. It also has a good restaurant for those who prefer to watch rather than play.
Blasi est près du marché de la ville historique de Moissac et la ville fortifiée de Lauzerte avec un accès facile à Cahors et aux Gorges de l’Aveyron. Bons restaurants allant du Bistro au gourmet et faciles à trouver.
Ici vous pouvez trouver les raisin chasselas AOC , très connu et très délicieuse.
Pres de la nature. A Blasi vous pourrez contempler le ciel qui est un du plus obscur de toute l'Europe de l'ouest. Aout est incroyable avec les étoiles filantes, le ciel est clair et étoilé et la voie lactée est très facile à voir. La vie sauvage est grande et intéressante.
