This pretty, stone-built house sits on a gently sloping hill, surrounded by fields and woods; with a beautiful 12m salt-water swimming pool. There are splendid views and walks in all directions and a large, child-friendly garden. The house is particularly suited for families or a group of friends wanting a restful holiday - and also for families with small children.
Bosc de la Croze is in the Lot et Garonne region, a beautiful part of south-west France with rolling, wooded hills and distinctive, white stone buildings. This area is often called the “garden of France”, as just about everything that is delicious is grown here. All kinds of vegetables, fruits, grapes (it is in the Cahors appellation controllée area, and is close to Bordeaux), beef, lamb, duck (the great speciality of south-west France), as well as fresh fish from Bordeaux are available. Bastides (12th-14th century fortified hill-top towns and villages), medieval churches and picturesque manor houses dot the hills and valleys, making every drive and walk enjoyable.
Toulouse (an hour and half from the house) is a lovely and interesting city, with excellent shops and restaurants and the famous Eglise des Jacobins. Moissac, about 40 minutes from the house, is a fascinating town with one of the best-preserved Romanesque churches and cloister. There is an excellent golf course 40 minutes away and tennis courts in two nearby villages.
Bosc de la Croze is situated in secluded farm land, with nearby woods; it is less than five minutes’ drive from two villages: Montaigu de Quercy and Tournon d’Agenais. Between the two villages you are provided with a baker, general store, supermarket, butcher, newsagent, a marvellous Saturday market and good restaurants.
Bosc de la Croze is in the Cahors wine region: there are some excellent vineyards within 30 minutes’ drive (recommended by Decanter and Hachette).
