About the property

Accomodation for 8 people, heated swimming pool. Ground fenced, dog allowed

The Domaine du Pécou, a farmhouse of character dating from 1799, is located on the edge of a vast wooded area and is located in the middle of the vineyards of Cahors. The house, built in stone as is usual in the Quercey, is completely restored and equipped with every comfort. It is surrounded by fifteen hectares of private land of which a quarter of a hectare is provided with a fence. In this enclosure you will find the house, the annex, the barn, the heated swimming pool and the garden. Next to it there is a fenced plot of two hectares for our little flock of sheep.

You will be able to enter the fenced plot via an electrically barrier. The private pool, open from June to October including the month of October, is located in the shelter and protected from the eyes of passersby; that's why we have lost the habit of putting on the swimsuit. Barbecue is possible in the original restored oven.


The house (Domaine du Pécou) is in the Lot, a department in South West France. A magnificent region, it is a slate plateau covered mainly with oaks which is crossed by the Dordogne, Célé and Lot.

You will be able to meet not only the beauty of nature, but also the history of humanity from prehistory to the present. Everywhere you will find silent witnesses such as prehistoric rock paintings, Celtic tombs (dolmen), Gallic fortifications, Roman art, medieval bastides (small fortified towns), cloisters and castles. During the Hundred Years War the region suffered a lot of battles between the French and English armies. During this period many bastides were built.

The Domaine du Pécou is 5 minutes from the beautiful old town of Puy L'Eveque and half an hour from the city of Cahors, the capital of the department of Lot where you can eat deliciously as the bottom everywhere in the region.

In Puy L'Eveque there are restaurants, a butcher, two bakeries and a supermarket. In the area you will find so many possibilities for hiking, swimming, rowing and horse riding. So if necessary you will also lose the calories taken.

The owners

In 1978 we, Lank Bos and Coos Huijsen, immediately fell in love with the house, its splendid surroundings and its wonderful intimacy and from that moment we are the happy owners. Every year we came back several times. For those interested: the house plays a role in homo-literature. Frans Kellendonk worked on his novel De Nietsnut (1979) when he stayed at Pécou and mentioned his stay in his correspondence. Coos worked and still works on his books and articles. The Pécou and the reaction of the population to its inhabitants are described in Homo Politicus (Amsterdam, 2015).
