This is the ideal base from which to explore South West France. Bergerac, Agen, Monflanquin and Cahors are all approximately within an hours drive.

Nearest towns
Lauzerte (15km) 15 min drive, a medieval bastide perched above the valleys and hills of the area known as the Quercy Blanc, Lauzerte is one of the most beautiful villages of France, a distinction granted to only 155 villages in the country. Founded in the 12th century by the Count of Toulouse, the village is located on the routes of the Santiago de Compostella.

Moissac, also just 15 minutes 15km, is a famous abbey town and is included in the World Heritage Site Routes of Santiago de Compostela in France.

Wine and Gastronomy
Visit some of the many local Caves and Chateau who offer free tastings and tours while you choose a bottle or two.

Bordeaux
This designated world heritage site is a must for all visitors. This cosmopolitan city offers a diverse range of attractions. The golden triangle has a fabulous range of shops for those shopaholics. 170km
A rich variety of architecture forms the backdrop for the street cafe’s, restaurants, bars and not forgetting the superb Grand Theatre.

Dordogne
The Dordogne is just one of the many places to visit for day trips. Anything from Canoeing or boat trips on the Dordogne river to exploring ancient villages. Approximately 1 hour drive north.

Markets
Most nearby villages and towns hold weekly markets full of fresh and interesting local produce. An ideal place to pick up your holiday mementoes and gifts. The picturesque town of Monflanquin is just over an hours drive away. Evening “Marche Gourmands” are a great night out where you buy your food at the stalls and eat on communal tables.  There is normally a local band or disco as entertainment, great fun for all the family!

Swimming Lakes
There are 2 popular swimming lakes not too far from the house – one in Montaigu de Quercy 24km and Montcuq 30km.  Both have little places to eat and the swimming lake is clean with a ‘beach’ too.

Canoeing / Kayaking
Flat water canoeing, wake boarding and water ski-ing are available locally at Moissac just 17km.  For those that are a little more adventurous take a drive of about 1hr 20 mins to Saint-Antonin-Noble-Val (Chocolat was filmed here) where you can hire Kayaks and test your skills on the rapids and through beautiful gorges. Brilliant fun even without kids.

Cycling
The area is perfect for cycling, whether it’s just a gentle ride around to explore or, if you are a keen cyclist, a long training ride on fantastic stretches of road to get the blood pumping whilst taking in the fantastic views.

Adventure Parks
Parc Wallibi, Agen: Local Theme park with rides for all ages, very young to teens. 42km

Capnature Cahors. This tree top adventure park has different levels, for young children to very fit adults!  Cahors is good for vineyards and wine tasting for the adults. 58km.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We were a family group of 4 adults and 3 children – 13,10 and 7 so able to cope safely with the stairs and outside steps. There was plenty of space to be together or doing different things; the house is in a beautiful situation, well equipped and furnished. The pool, garden and terrace were brilliant in a very hot week and the welcome pack of edible goodies was much appreciated. A lovely property.

The ball party. August 2018

We are back in London now after a fortnight’s holiday at La Provinciale. It’s a lovely house in a beautiful location – what an idyllic, lush panorama! – and we had a wonderful time with friends and family.

Thank you for providing the badminton set – it was used a lot, along with the croquet and ping-pong. And we loved the mint and clover-rich lawn, great for yoga! We enjoyed the whole garden and kept the geraniums etc well-watered.

We have used many holiday houses for big family hols in the south of France and yours was easily one of the best with the finest setting for a pool! Thank you for sharing it with us.

Outstanding Views and Oodles of French Charm 
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Perched on the edge of an idyllic small French hamlet, La Provinciale was everything we had hoped for – with unparalleled views, secluded peace and tranquility, and tons of old French charm, the location and house were second to none. Perfect for 3 families with children, for two couples it offered us lots of space and freedom to relax, unwind and enjoy. The house was very well presented and provided all the necessities needed, including games, towels and bedding. The terrace was the perfect place for every meal and the pool, although cold (it was the start of October!) was well maintained and offered exceptional views with vineyards and sunflower fields a few feet away. The local area offers endless opportunities for activities, visits and eating/drinking, all within a short drive from the house, with Laureate being particularly special. I would unhesitatingly recommend La Provinciale to anyone who just wants to get away from it all, kick back, relax, and take in rural French life as it should be – an excellent holiday.

Wonderful memories
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We couldn’t have been happier with our stay. We were welcomed with cheese, bread and wine in the kitchen and fresh flowers on the table. The place was in immaculate condition with stunning views. We were sad to have to leave.
Georgina S, August 2015

“We had a great time. The pool is awesome. We ate every meal outside and went to Park Walibi!!!”
Stuart Family, July 2015

“Ate loads of cherries, had a wonderful time! Recommend ‘Horlorge’ Restaurant at Auvillar, a beautiful town.'”

Magical stay in paradise
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
“What a beautiful house, the views are so stunning, vast across the valley. A fabulous upper terrace, covered, allowing easy eating straight from the kitchen out of the hot sun. The garden is full of roses and the lilacs just finished. The house is well equipped and full of character, clearly a home. Loads of books, for kids and adults. Pool beautiful, on the edge of the world. If you love food, the Moissac markets on Saturday and Sunday are fabulous. Local restaurants abound, we loved Lauzerte, so beautiful. Loads to do with the kids, walking down to the reservoir across the road is a wonderful safe place for adventures. Loved canoeing from St Antonin de Noble Val down the gorge, kids loved it. But their favourite was the tree zip wire park at Cahors.  The house was well maintained and clean, lovely welcome wine and cheese. Yes, I would recommend this house, and will come back again next year.”
Robert K, May 2015

Stunning location and absolute peace and quiet
“A beautiful gite, stunning location and absolute peace and quiet. The local area is chock-a-block with Medieval villages, like stepping back in time and all just a few minutes away. A really memorable family holiday and (by the way) the pool is brilliant!
Look forward to future holidays.”
The Cameron party, July 2014

“La Provinciale was wonderful, lots of space yet felt cosy. We definitely felt at home! We liked that it was a traditional house and looked beautiful – so many friends were envious that we stayed there when they saw our photos.

We all really enjoyed having our breakfasts and dinners on the terrace with that wonderful view over the surrounding countryside. The pool was lovely and beautifully located over the vineyards – we loved spending a day just lounging in and around the water.

Our group found the location to be perfect – situated on a hill in a small village/hamlet, we could really get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and appreciate the quiet, stunning surroundings and each other’s company, which was essentially what we wanted. The nearest towns weren’t too far away and if we had stayed longer we would have loved to explore more of the area as there are so many different places to visit that are off the main tourist route.

In short, we had a lovely relaxing stay at La Provinciale and we would love to return for another holiday!”
The Akaraskul party, June 2014

“La Provinciale is a handsome old building full of charm, set on the side of a valley with stunning views. The house is spacious and fully equipped with everything one could possibly need, the gardens are large and open, full of flowers and fruit trees, with a large swimming pool on one of the several terraces. You are surrounded by peach, cherry, nectarine and grape fields, with medieval hill villages, fantastic markets, restaurants, as well as walking, cycling and tennis nearby. We had a wonderful tranquil staythere and we will certainly be coming back.”
