Liberte ref : 6700021

Reference 6700021 Site Sleeps 14 Over 4 Properties

So much more than your average gîtes……Liberté truly is a five star experience ! The Lot in the Midi-Pyrennees is still an unspoilt and beautiful environment with a huge variety of activities and diversions on offer.  

"Liberte" is a large old Quercy stone farmhouse which has been beautifully restored and is set in 6 peaceful acres of woodlands and meadows. But it isn’t isolated, it’s just 20-25 minutes from Cahors, a big bustling old market town and with good access to airports (Toulouse and Rodez 1hr 10mins by car). Local food shops, cafés and restaurants are just a 10-15 min car drive (Lalbenque and Limognes). 

Accommodation is available as 3 individual units : 

"Acorn" for 2 sharing;

"Oak" for 2 sharing + 2 children;

"Tree" for 6 people (3 x 2 sharing) 

or the whole house "Liberte" is available for 10-12 people 

The accommodation has been specifically designed and laid out to consider both privacy and togetherness. The whole house has been restored in keeping with its original period (1830) and furnished with style, flair and imagination. Many original features – fireplaces, éviers, exposed beams, staircases and thick, old, stone walls – but with all "mod cons".
