Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Domaine de Lesquilourié, Cordes-sur-Ciel, Occitanie, France, sleeps 10-12 in 6 bedrooms.
Domaine de Lesquilourie has been the French home of an English family for 20 years and the venue of many celebratory events and get-togethers for family and friends as well as groups of keen cyclists, runners, triathletes and touring motorcar clubs. It has also provided a tranquil respite for the less energetic who simply want to relax by the pool and enjoy the local food and wine.
The property is made up of a spacious 5 bedroom/4 bathroom house sleeping 10 and an adjacent 1 bedroom/1 bathroom self-contained cottage for 2. The main farmhouse comprises the south, west and east wings of the bastide surrounding the courtyard.
The double aspect master suite in the west wing has views of rolling hills and windows opening onto the courtyard. Its impressive en suite has a free-standing roll top bath, centrally positioned to take advantage of the west views, and a glazed walk-in shower. There are 4 further double bedrooms (2 with twin beds), 1 with en suite shower room, and 2 further bathrooms. The use of rooms is flexible with additional single beds for use by clients if preferred.
NB Cycling fans: the Tour de France 2019 is coming to Albi, near to the house, on 15-17 July.
A laundry room with washing machine, tumble dryer and sink, and separate WC is on the ground floor.
The large inner courtyard is ideal for secluded outdoor dining - the venue for many a long summer evening with friends and family, replete with good food and wine, talking, laughing and setting the world to rights before turning in for a good night’s rest.
The 17-hectare grounds include extensive garden and grassed areas, a small orchard, shady areas for picnics or contemplation and secluded woodland for more strenuous walks. There is a terrace and a covered outdoor seating area for alfresco dining near the pool.
The 12 x 6m swimming pool is in the front garden, surrounded by a stone terrace and mature plants and trees. There's nothing more delicious on a hot summer’s day than gliding into its cool silky water.
Fantastic cycling and walking, local markets and historic towns to explore, reservoir swimming nearby, excellent food and wine - perfect ingredients for a great holiday.
