You won't find a house like this in the French countryside in a hurry! Architect-designed​, so a very modern living style. Very light, spacious, and entirely detached on a hilly, wooded plot of almost 1.5ha. A large garden and a 48m2 swimming pool complete the picture. You enter through a hallway that leads straight into the open kitchen (with dining area) and large sitting room. You will be amazed by the effect of space in this room; the large fireplace and the mezzanine upstairs are striking. You can step right onto the terrace to the pool, where you'll find various spots to sit down and enjoy yourself. There is also a comfortable double bedroom on the ground floor, with an adjacent bathroom (shower, washbasin, toilet) and storage space. The top floor contains another three bedrooms, two singles and a double bed on the mezzanine, and a spacious bathroom with bathtub, separate shower and toilet. The remarkable towns of St. Cirq Lapopie, Rocamadour, Gourdon, Cabrerets (with its caves), Puy L'Eveque, Domme, etc., are all within a half hour's reach. Cahors is a fifteen-minute drive from the house. This beautiful region offers plenty of choice of restaurants, picturesque markets and flea markets, as well as recreational and sports options.

The Lot is one of France’s least populated departments. Among the French it is well known for its unspoiled beauty and excellent local cuisine. Situated at a considerable distance from the tempering influence of the Atlantic and the Mediterranean, winters can be cold and summers hot and dry. By the end of summer with the majority of tourists gone, September is considered, by some, the most pleasant month of the year. Traditionally the Lot has been a favourite destination for those who prefer privacy, beauty and excellent food to discos and mass amusement. We have had the good fortune of living here for almost thirty years. As a foretaste of what to look forward to, here are some tips: If time permits (and it should!) never drive straight to your destination but lose yourself in the small by-roads: you will be delighted by the beauty and variation of landscape and architecture and, if lost, your GPS will guide you to where you ultimately wanted to go. Cahors (about fifteen minutes from Boissieres), as the capital of the department, provides all necessary needs and services, including direct train connections to Paris and Toulouse. It is a beautiful, intimate town, breathing the ambiance and allure of the Midi. Not to be missed are its colourful market and regular brocantes and antique shows. Some of France’s major tourist sites are within easy reach; if they turn out to be too crowded just the trip getting there will have been worthwhile. Whereas our house is situated in the Quercy Noir, the region south of Cahors is called the Quercy Blanc – with good reason. The two regions are very different in color, landscape and architecture: one of our favourite Sunday outings is a trip to Montcuq with its busy market and lively terraces. The food enthousiast has the choice of a wide range of excellent (and mostly very affordable) restaurants – from the simple auberge, mainly offering the local cuisine, to the sophisticated Michelin starred ones ( le Gindreau**, so to say around the corner from us, just got its second star).
