About Shelby Matthews
We have lived in a city for most of our lives but have always yearned for a secluded peaceful place in the countryside where we could take the family, as far away as possible from traffic and the hassle it entails. We finally found the house which fulfils all those criteria and more. No cars pass our house except those of the local farmer. Yet there are scores of things to do within a short drive.
Shelby Matthews purchased this farmhouse in 2013
Why Shelby Matthews chose Puylagarde
The house is in the beautiful Tarn-et-Garonne area of south west France. It benefits from a near Mediterranean climate and whether it's walking or biking through the lush green countryside, ambling through medieval villages, visiting the many bustling farmers' markets, fishing or canoeing through rapids, you will not be at a loss for something to do. The area is well-known for its gastronomic specialities such as truffles, duck and goose delicacies, mushrooms, white garlic, Reine-Claude plums, Quercy melons, Moissac cherries, saffron and chestnuts. You can also visit local producers by foot from our house - see the Gascon pigs lazing in the woods or watch the goats being milked to make Rocamadour cheese. The lovely medieval towns of Villefranche-de-Rouergue (22km) & St Antonin Noble Val (24km) both have large markets which rival any in France. There are also several beautiful hilltop towns nearby: Najac (20 km), St Cirq-LaPopie (27km) & Cordes sur Ciel (40km) as well as the famous capital of the Tarn - Albi (64km).
What makes this farmhouse unique
The great attraction of this property is that it enables us to have a lovely secluded base far from any traffic and yet have numerous interesting places and local markets to visit within a short drive. Plus a range of sporting activities for all the family from swimming, pétanque and table tennis at the property itself or walking, biking, canoeing, horse-riding, fishing in the local area.
