Monteils Villa Rental Photos and Description

A self catering rental in a village with easy access to historic locations

It is very light and airy with large shuttered windows and french doors to let in the warm summer air and provide ample opportunity to admire the lovely views of the surrounding forest hills. Furnishings are very comfortable and of a high standard. The conservatory, which is fully furnished with large sofa, chairs and coffee table is a real bonus in winter or on cool summer nights. The villa's open plan layout is particularly suitable for those who enjoy preparing meals whilst conversing with friends or family. The kitchen is amply equipped and leads to a large BBQ sun deck. The villa is in a very peaceful setting with a large (1acre) landscaped garden containing lawns with patio areas and many mature trees. Games room, good Internet access, free terrestrial phone calls and 2 MP3/Ipod docs. Sheets, towels and pool towels included.Smoking restricted

About the Villa: This villa is built in traditional style using local features including a large sundeck overlooking the swimming pool. It is very light and airy with large shuttered windows and french doors to let in the warm summer air and admire the lovely views of the surrounding forest hills. Furnishings are very comfortable and of a high standard. Downstairs floors are of traditional tile with several woven rugs to give a cosy atmosphere. The conservatory is furnished with wicker sofa, chairs and coffee table . The glass doors can be fully opened to let in the air in summer. The kitchen is amply equipped and there are place settings for formal or informal dining. Free Wifi , unlimited landline calls across Europe and 2 MP3/IPod sound systems. Towels, sheets and pool towels included. Pool table and football game plus other indoor and outdoor games. Two additional patio areas in garden.

About the Garden and Village: The Villa is in a very peaceful setting with a large (1acre) landscaped garden containing many mature trees including oak, fruit, walnut and juniper plus grassed areas that provide quite spots in the sun or shade. There is a stream at the bottom of the garden with a little bridge leading to the drive. There are no fences or hedges - just a lovely open view of the surrounding hills. The pool area is terraced with sunbeds and cold water shower and is secured by a lockable fence. It has an adjoining pergola covered by grape vines. The pool and garden is maintained by a local. The village has a meandering river, communal bread oven, ancient washing stone and lovely church. The village festival in August is a must. All our neighbours are french and are friendly and helpful. The traditional local bar/cafe (3km) is a must. It has a covered outside eating area by a lovely river which is ideal for fishing.

Out and About: The attractions in the region are highly recommended, although most visitors seem to enjoy days spent in the garden by the pool, especially when the weather gets hot in high summer.. Cycling is very popular and train travel is accessible. The nearest town with a station is the medieval bastide of Villefranche de Rouergue (8km) which has a good selection of bars, hotels, restaurants, tourist information, traditional shops, boutiques and wine merchants.. There are several large supermarkets on the outskirts - HyperU is only 10 mins drive away from the villa. Roads leading to the villa from Rodez via Villfranche de Rouergue are well maintained and pretty level so your journey will be much shorter than those harder to reach destinations within more hilly areas. The nearest shops and bars are in Monteils (3km) which is accessed via a level road on foot, car or bike. There is also a good pony trekking club in Monteils and a farmers table to sample traditional fois gras

We live in lovely Market Harborough. We have a large family and the villa is great for our family holidays.

Chris Flynn purchased this villa in 2006

We came across the villa by chance and fell in love with it straight away owing to the fabulous location.

Our guests all agree that the surroundings are very peaceful and quiet. The scenery is beautiful and the area is very safe and secure.

Secluded, private but space for everyone

  • 5 of 5
PIcked this villa almost at random off the site and are so glad we chose it. Sounds a cliché but the photos really don't sum up the space and room this villa has.
We went with four adults and three children from 8 to 14, first big plus was directions you can follow and lead you to the door - always a bonus. Warm welcome by the rep on-site who was very knowledgeable. House large , spacious v clean but never felt like you couldn't relax in it and best of all there are spaces all over the very large site where everyone can "get away from it" - be it the hammock, round the side or the other end of the garden.
Pool large and v popular with all. Kitchen excellently kitted out, probably one of the best we have used on a holiday
Local area is spectacular, particularly enjoyed Najac, Canoeing at St Antonin and for a further drive Belcastel is beautiful.
Any down sides , If I'm being very picky there would be a small baker / shop in the village but then there's one just 2Km down the road in Monteils, the Hammock was on its last legs but is being replaced and the upstairs can get very hot - maybe benefit from a couple of fans for us unacclimatised Brits who find ourselves unexpectedly in 35 degrees and struggling with it.
Final plus - the deposit comes back within a few days and no quibbles - excellent service.

Owner's Response: Just to note that the garden hammock will definately be replaced, infact, owing to popularity, we will try and rig up a second one in its own private space.
Thanks for the suggestion about providing fans in the bedrooms. Will get on to it ready for next season.
Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write this review.

Great Family Villa In An Outstanding Location

  • 5 of 5
We were all over the moon to find out on arrival how lovely this villa and its location is. The villa is very well equipped and clean and really felt like home from home but with the added benefits of the weather, views and swimming pool which got plenty of use.
There are plenty of small and interesting towns within 10 miles of the property to explore with some great restaurants and friendly people.
We all went kayaking at Viellevie on the river Lot which was great fun and well worth trying if your adventurous and dont mind the 1.5 hour drive.
The pool table got a fair bit of use, great having a games room.

Thanks to Christine and Patrick!!

Amazing villa

  • 5 of 5
This villa is amazing. The location/views are exceptional as are the facilities, from the well equipped kitchen and games room, to the library of books to read this villa really does have everything you need. Staying with two children (one three year old) it was fantastic to have the pool area fenced off, they could run around the ample gardens without us worrying they would fall into the pool. Also great not to have a pool alarm going off in the middle of the night! We had a wonderful holiday in your lovely villa and I would highly recommend it to anyone reading this. The plums are also delicious!

Beautiful, peaceful villa surrounded by nature

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic place to stay with great facilities, situated in a quiet and pretty village (Floirac) in the countryside. A great place to 'get away from it all'.

The villa is very spacious with doors that open out to the gardens. The barbecue on the terrace was excellent and we spent many evenings relaxing there. The swimming pool is a good size, but could benefit with an extra umbrella (as there were 7 people in our party).

It was very relaxing just walking around the gardens watching the wildlife, especially the blackbirds which were nesting outside the window at the back of the property. We even saw a red squirrel.

We would definitely recommend this property, especially for families or groups of friends.

Rustic, secluded and tranquil

  • 5 of 5
The villa is set in a secluded hamlet with half a dozen other houses although with each house being on a good sized plot and surrounded by trees and shrubs, you are not overlooked at all whether you are on the terrace, garden or pool.

The terrace is somewhere to "while away" many hours drinking cups of coffee or glasses of wine gazing out at the many varieties of trees and shrubs in the small valley.

The house itself is very rustic and very French with some lovely tables and chairs and it has all the mod cons you need. The wifi is great to have, allowing us to run the laptop as well as having the internet radio on all day. Another bonus was having the "free phone" - part of the wifi package as I understand it. Along with satellite TV, it means that you feels as though you in the UK - but in the south of France with 30c each day! The free phone is essential though as mobile reception is poor or non-existent at the villa. The fans in the bedrooms are very useful following hot days and, once you get used to them, you simply forget that they are on.

I believe that the more French you speak the more you will get from the holiday. The locals are very friendly and want to engage with you but it can be very frustrating if you don't have much French!

We had fabulous weather during our 3 weeks at the villa and we would thoroughly recommend it for those who want a relaxing, "get away from it all" holiday - whilst still being able to keep in touch. The whole family will enjoy the good sized pool and there are plenty of supermarkets and shops in Villefranche only 15 minutes drive away.

The villa has all the essential equipment required and the "games room" in the garage had plenty of use! In our 3 weeks we have had three sets of family visit us and they all loved the place.

Tres Joli Maison et une Beau Jardin

  • 5 of 5
Just looked up the property to show our friends where we stayed this year.  We read the review from the German family and it did not seem to describe the same property we had such a lovely time in.  I suppose you cannot please everyone all of the time. We have stayed in many properties in France throughout the years and can say that this property was one of the best based on our criteria:  Not overlooked and garden very lovely, house spacious and very comfortable.  Also, very clean and well equipped.  Staff friendly and helpful but not 'in our face' and swimming pool big enough to have a 'real' swim in. Loads to see and do in the area.  All in all excellent value for money.    Thanks for a lovely stay. We will be back!
