Situated on the Pilgrim Route to Santiago de Compostela, La Chave self-catering holiday home is peacefully located between the picturesque village of Montcuq and the cathedral city of Cahors, capital of the Lot.

This fine old stone house, dating from 1880, has been charmingly restored, retaining all its original character with the addition of modern comforts.  South facing, with large windows, it is extremely light and sunny and is comfortably furnished in a period style.

Enclosed in the old kitchen garden is the large 6m x 12m saltwater swimming pool with alarm and lighting surrounded by a wide paved terrace.  The garden is attractively  planted and surrounded by box hedges, providing quiet corners to sit,  and cover for the many different birds and butterflies that live there.

On the upper level,  the large 3 sided barn originally used for dying tobacco is the focus of outdoor living, playing table tennis, table football, snooker or darts, or relaxing over delicious meals cooked on the built in BBQ. Up some stone steps is the younger children's sandpit, very popular and providing hours of fun.

La Chave is ideal for large family gatherings or 2 families sharing,  as the layout of the bedrooms on 2 floors is very flexible. For more details, click on the Accommodation page.

The local market towns offer a wonderful opportunity to sample local produce, not forgetting the famous “black wine” of Cahors!  For more information about the area click on the Local Attractions page.

“Under New Management!”

On 30th August 2014 we had the very great pleasure of taking ownership of this magical little corner of France.  Lindy Ball who owned La Chave since 2000 has done a superb job in restoring the main house and in creating the wonderful garden.  We aim to continue this good work and over time perhaps create our own legacy through further improvements and modifications.

We look forward to the opportunity of inviting you to share this little piece of heaven with us.
