Luzech farmhouse description

La Saga is a picturesque, fully restored Quercy farmhouse, located in the tiny hamlet of Bede. This stone built house enjoys a wonderful private situation, set in five acres with its own private large pool, ensuring peace and tranquillity. The pool is fenced. The house has been renovated with care to retain its its traditional style and character, it has a charming beamed sitting room with a huge open fireplace. It is very pretty and tastefully furnished, with exposed beams and stonewalls everywhere. Complete with a traditional converted 'Pigeonnier' a picturesque tower that was once the home of the farmers precious flock of pigeons! There are lovely terraces to enjoy views over the pool. La Saga is a comfortable and atmospheric retreat from reality, with a large open fireplace in the sitting room and independent central heating for the occasional chilly night in Spring and Autumn!

The A20 makes the journey a breeze, leaving only 14 miles of non-motorway driving from the house to London.

Things to do: In nearby Catus there is the Lac Vert with great facilities for children. The lake has a beach area, (with life guards in season), playground, canoe and pedaloe rental. There are tennis courts at the lake, also at Montgesty and Thedirac. There is a delightful nine hole golf course approximately 20 miles distant. The River Lot is close by.
