Other Amenities

  • The house is in a beautiful unspoiled part of South-western France, and is on different levels, so that it does not feel too large for 4 or 6 people, but is also lovely for parties of two or more families or mixed age-groups. It is comfortably furnished and equipped for 12 people. Set in its own 2.5 acres, it has a happy, spacious family feel, with the pool and surrounding woodland providing a natural focus. For older people, one en suite bedroom and the middle level of the house are directly accessible from the lawn outside. Long winter lets sought (November - April) at the very competitive rate (for long let only), and as such suitable for house-hunters and/or those wanting to get away from it all.

This farmhouse has an idyllic rural setting on a hillside, in rolling countryside, about an hour north-west of Toulouse and enjoying complete privacy and peace. Cahors is good wine country and the area is also noted for many fine medieval towns, of which Lauzerte is the nearest (12 km). Moissac, with its famous cloister lies not far to the south, and Montcuq, a bustling market town, is worth a visit. The dramatic Gorges du Tarn are within easy reach, as are Albi with its wonderful cathedral and the Toulouse -Lautrec museum, while within approx. 2 hours you can be at the sea or in the Pyrenees

Other Activities: Wine-tasting, sight-seeing medieval towns, markets, canoing


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I am a portrait painter and my husband is a shipwright (restoration of wooden boats), We live and work in Cornwall and have three small children. We have had some very special times at Gleyaire. Memories never to be forgotten, and hope that others will enjoy it as much.

Why the Owner Chose Fauroux, France:
The house appeals because of it's utter privacy, and romanticism. One really feels as if one is in the elements with all the insect life and wild flowers surrounding it... not a house in sight. It feels as if many good times have been enjoyed here over the last few hundred years.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Gleyaire has always been a happy place, and somewhere to go for peace and refuge. Believe it or not, many people have met and fallen in love here, and I can see why.
