Property 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. There are many interesting river boat excursions and water sports, (swimming, canoeing, dinghy sailing etc. to be enjoyed on the river. The local horse riding through peaceful countryside is particularly good, as is the quad biking, walking and cycling. There is hang gliding at nearby Craysac. There are numerous charming towns and villages to visit. Cahors is a fascinating town in which to spend a day and Toulouse offers the sophistication of French city life. We have excellent local restaurants, one of which is a Michelin one star - Le Gindreau - and is an absolute must. (Check out the web site See below.

Eating out: Their are a number of good value restaurants close by. The Gindreau at St Denis Catus has a Michelin Star and is only about ten minutes down the road. (It is one of the top 100 of all French restaurants in the Gault Millau guide for 2007) It is fantastic value. The 'Recreation' at Les Arques has wonderful food at great prices and has recently been the subject of a book. There are great 'typical' places to eat in nearby villages. Cahors has many good restaurants serving local specialities.
