Country House near Montcuq, Lot, Midi-Pyrenees - Peaceful Location with beautiful views across valley
About Ian Marsden
We live in Hampshire, England. We bought the house after many happy holidays in France, and try to stay there several times a year.
Ian Marsden purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Ian Marsden chose Saint-Laurent-Lolmie
It is incredibly peaceful and off the beaten track, tourist-wise. The weather is glorious, most of the time, from April until the end of October. Its a perfect location for rest and relaxation. Because of its rural location, a car is essential, although there is a small local bar within walking distance.
What makes this Cottage unique
The closest shops are around 8 kilometres away - also accessible by bicycle (around 30 minutes on a good day!). There are also many beautiful towns in the region, a lake for swimming nearby, a different market to visit every day, and the cities of Toulouse and Bordeaux within reach for a day trip.

We stayed here for 2 weeks in August, Ian is a very helpful host and was easy to get hold of before we went. Luckily we didnt need to contact him whilst we were away as everything was perfect. The house was spotlessly clean, even no dust or cobwebs (phew). The kitchen is well stocked and the house has lots of board games stored away and English TV if you need it. The pool is amazing!!!! When we booked, there wasnt really a picture of the pool so we didnt know what to expect, Ian, if you havent already, you should definately get another picture of your pool put on here. It was perfect, the sides were slanted at the deep end so if you find yourself in trouble you can swim to the side and are able to stand again, it has 3 large walk in steps to the pool which was perfect for our 2 year old, he could sit and play in the pool and actually be able to stand up at that part.. the pool lining is soft, so if you unfortunately fall (our eldest is a like a bull in a China shop), it does hurt so much. And it was fenced off from the rest of the garden. The fact that the pool is heated made a huge difference to us, this is the 1st time we've had a heated pool and its definately something that will draw us in in the future, we used it alot more. The area is beautiful and quiet, lots of lovely countryside to walk around and enjoy. only 15 mins from nearest supermarket. I highly recommend this property to and family wishing to holiday in this area of France.
