NEWLY CONVERTED 17TH CENTURY BARN W/ PÉTANQUE COURT, WIFI, IN VILLAGE SETTING

Degagnac Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom (ensuite), sleeps 4

IF YOU ARE ONLY 2 PEOPLE, ask for a discounted price!!

GREAT DEAL!! 9 NIGHTS FOR €500, August 31 to September 9th

I arrived in France June 2011 and have spent the last 3 years putting finishing touches on a barn conversion, the latest new feature being a private pétanque court! Since I split my time between the U.S. and France, the furnishings are owner not renter oriented...high end Bosch appliances, Le Creuset and All Clad cookware, comfortable beds and linens.

The barn sits on a raised plateau with both bedrooms on the street level. The master bedroom has a full bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers, ensuite half bath, television, and french doors opening onto a country road. The second bedroom has two single beds (made up as a king bed if you prefer), a wardrobe and view of the pétanque court and garden. A full bath is off the hall between the bedrooms.

A path winds down to the terrace where French doors in the kitchen and living room open onto a lovely southeast-facing terrace with shade tree for outdoor meals and all day sun for sunworshipers. A two minute walk to a village store, bar, spice shop, post office, doctor's office, church and a popular restaurant with a fine local reputation.

My home has overhead halogen lighting in every room. The flooring is pine with a whitewash finish. Some of the stone walls and beams from the barn have been judiciously left exposed. There is a wood burning stove in the living area and firewood available for your use. There are two HD LED television sets hooked up to a British satellite, one in the living room, the other in the master bedroom.

I spend a lot of time here, but rest assured, when I leave all personal items are packed up and stowed so you can make this home your home during your stay.

CONVERTED BARN ON THE EDGE OF THE DORDOGNE

  • 4 of 5
Exactly as described. Recently rebuilt, with modern appliances, etc. This is Clare's own home, so it is well cared for. Several Michelin-starred restaurants in the area. We would recommend Gindreau in St.Medard. Visits to Rocamadour and Domme are a must.

OUR THREE MONTHS AT "BEAUCAILLOU"

Our Three Months at "Beaucaillou"
  • 5 of 5
We were lucky to be able to call " Beaucaillou" our home for three months.
Beaucaillou is a converted 17th century barn, with the added feature of a pétanque court (boules) in the lower garden.
The main floor has an open plan fully equipped kitchen and comfortable living room, each area with it's own French doors opening onto the terrace.
Upstairs..Master bedroom and ensuite powder room and a second large bedroom with views over the back garden, and a full bathroom and laundry facility. Most comfortable beds with linens and towels provided.
The terrace is perfect for alfresco dining or lounging in the sun.
Location is great for sight seeing in the surrounding Lot Valley and Dordogne region.
Plenty of Farmer's Markets are held in nearby villages and towns, and large supermarkets are only 15 minutes away.
The village has an épicerie (general store with a depot de pain so you can get fresh bread), a Post Office, a specialty Spice shop and a Restaurant.
The area is great for taking walks and exploring nature and the countryside.
The town of Gourdon only 15 minutes away has a public swimming pool, many restaurants , shops and supermarkets and also a Cinema.
It is also located near the heart of the Cahors wine region, with many vineyards offering degustations and tours.
We would recommend this accommodation to friends and family.

The owner was very responsive to our enquiries and messages.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dégagnac and the comforts of Beaucaillou.

Postcards from the Lot blog has more details about the area.

UN BON CHOIX!!

  • 5 of 5
Bonjour!! Je m'appelle Javier. J'habite à Madrid. L'été dernier, au mois d'août, deux amis et moi, nous avons décidé de visiter la France de l'intérieur: la Dordogne, le Lot, le Périgord, le Quercy. Choisir un bon logement, c'est toujours un peu compliqué: la bonne localisation, l'état de la maison, le prix, etc. Nous avons choisi cette maison, dans un petit village bien français, authentique, réel: Dégagnac, situé dans une région boisée, rurale, avec un entourage idéal du point de vue historique, artistique, naturel, gastronomique et oenologique, bien sûr! Le choix a été parfait: bonne situation, au milieu de la région, confortable, bien décorée, restaurée à partir d'un ancien grénier en pierre, très tranquille. Les petits-déjeuners et les dîners sur la terrasse...inoubliables. Très important: des lits confortables, toutes les comodités d'une maison: lave-vaisselle, machine à laver, une cuisine parfaitement équipée pour préparer de bonnes petites recettes. Une salle de séjour accueillant, ouverte à la terrasse, etc...La propriétaire...charmante et de toute confiance. Enfin, bon, bref...parfaite pour quatre personnes, ou pour un mariage et deux enfants.
Maintenant, c'est à vous de choisir!

BY FAR OUR FAVOURITE COTTAGE RENTAL IN FRANCE

  • 5 of 5
This summer, my wife, two baby girls and I spent five weeks in France, each in a different village or town. We rented five different homes (one for each week) and enjoyed them all. This cottage in Dégagnac however was, by far, our favourite. Why:
1. Immaculately clean. With two baby girls crawling around, I can't say enough how important this was to me and my wife. The place was tidy and spotless.
2. Charming. The home is beautiful inside and out. The owner, a friendly American lady, did a wonderful job of making the house comfortable. We appreciated how thoughtfully decorated it was. The exposed beams, excellent North American-style shower, modern appliances, big windows downstairs, halogen lights — made the home bright regardless of the time of day, yet at the same time warm, cozy and French. And the kitchen is top-notch. We loved cooking there.
3. Location. We enjoyed how private and quiet it was, especially the courtyard.
4. Responsive. The few questions we had while staying there were answered promptly by both the American owner and local manager, a British lady.
The next time we return to Dégagnac — a region that is one of France's best-kept secrets in my opinion — we can't imagine staying anywhere else. In every way, very highly recommended.

HIDDEN GEM IN DEGAGNAC, FRANCE

  • 5 of 5
We found everything to be exactly as mentioned in the description of the property, which was wonderful since we could really enjoy our week long summer stay with our 2 small children. The local village (Degagnac) was very quiet, but many of the interesting attractions in the Lot and Dordogne regions were much closer than expected, so we found ourselves making early excursions, then returning in the afternoon to relax in the shade of the terrasse, and the cool comfort of the cottage. Having satellite tv and wifi available was then perfect. We really felt like we were at home during our visit.

We would definitely consider staying again since we enjoyed the region, and the property so much.

My property is located in the northwest corner of the Lot, just minutes from the Dordogne in Aquitaine. The area is characterized by little industry, small population, rural landscape, low key tourism, and beautiful, hot dry summer days. Degagnac and the surrounding area has dozens of walking and hiking trails and marked cycling routes as well. For those interested in horseback riding there are two equestrian centers in Degagnac, and riders are routinely seen going by the house on their way to ancient forest trails and open fields. The village has a 'plan d'eau', a small lake for fishing and picnicking with a tennis court, picnic benches and a small playground for young children. Degagnac is also home to the 'Jardin Bourian' (adjacent to the plan d'eau), a teaching garden that inspires natural gardening and promotes biodiversity through practical advice and demonstrations. Five kilometers away is Salviac which has shops, restaurants, an ATM machine, a boulangerie/patisserie, a municipal swimming pool and a grocery store. Another 5 minutes down the road is Cazals which has a very nice Sunday market.

The medieval hill town of Gourdon is just 15 minutes drive away with its full-service hospital, exceptional Saturday market, 2 supermarkets, sidewalk restaurants, shops of all kinds, prehistoric caves, lake swimming and bike rentals.

Cahors, the capitol city of the Lot surrounded on 3 sides by the Lot River, is a 35 minute drive south and is known for its medieval architecture, secret gardens, impressive Resistance Museum, an excellent Saturday market, dozens of shops, in addition to supersized versions of all the retail stores in the region. In Cahors there is no shortage of restaurants, cafes, as well as dockside dining on the river.

The two popular destinations of Domme and Sarlat in the Dordogne are 20 minutes and 35 minutes away respectively. Rocamadour, one of the most visited sites in France, is less than an hour's drive. Boat excursions and kayak/canoe rentals are available along the Dordogne River. A 9-hole golf course 30 minutes away in Vitrac, and an 18-hole golf course is located 50 minutes north of Degagnac in Souillac.

If you love flea markets, 'brocantes' and 'vide greniers' abound from Spring into the Fall, featuring everything from antique furniture and collectables to vintage clothing/linens, old china and silver, antique agricultural tools, books, art etc.
