I am a portrait painter and my husband is a shipwright (restoration of wooden boats), We live and work in Cornwall and have three small children. We have had some very special times at Gleyaire. Memories never to be forgotten, and hope that others will enjoy it as much.
The house appeals because of it's utter privacy, and romanticism. One really feels as if one is in the elements with all the insect life and wild flowers surrounding it... not a house in sight. It feels as if many good times have been enjoyed here over the last few hundred years.
Gleyaire has always been a happy place, and somewhere to go for peace and refuge. Believe it or not, many people have met and fallen in love here, and I can see why.
This farmhouse has an idyllic rural setting on a hillside, in rolling countryside, about an hour north-west of Toulouse and enjoying complete privacy and peace. Cahors is good wine country and the area is also noted for many fine medieval towns, of which Lauzerte is the nearest (12 km). Moissac, with its famous cloister lies not far to the south, and Montcuq, a bustling market town, is worth a visit. The dramatic Gorges du Tarn are within easy reach, as are Albi with its wonderful cathedral and the Toulouse -Lautrec museum, while within approx. 2 hours you can be at the sea or in the Pyrenees
Other Activities: Wine-tasting, sight-seeing medieval towns, markets, canoing
