About this property

Charming Stone House and Barn with Pool. This cottage/gite is in a rural setting.

Set in a peaceful hamlet in the hills facing the picturesque village of Penne d’Agenais, and within easy reach of the riverside town of Villeneuve sur Lot. This charming house and barn were built some 200 years ago and have been delightfully renovated, still retaining many of the original features. The spacious and comfortably furnished accommodation is only available for single party bookings and can comfortably cater for up to 16 people.
La Croix de Loubas is surrounded by beautiful open countryside, woodland and in the summer, fields of sunflowers and fruit trees. The large gardens extend to one acre, with an attractive variety of trees, shrubs, and a large lawned area, ideal for outdoor games. Relax by the 10 x 5m swimming pool or explore the local villages and countryside at your leisure. Nearby is the River Lot with a variety of water sports and facilities.  The property is set off a quiet country road, at the top of a hill and is approached from  a gravel drive with shady parking areas.

The Owner Recommends

Latéral-a-la-Garonne

Near Buzet, you can hire your own small boat for a day or half day, take a picnic and meander slowly along the tree-lined water-ways of this UNESCO World Heritage site travelling through ancient locks and past elegant waterside buildings and beautiful fields and orchards. Take the opportunity to stop and enjoy a coffee or lunch at one of the nearby, river or canal-side villages.

Parc Walib'

American Six Flags Amusement/Water Park for the whole family to enjoy, with exciting and exotic water rides/slides, water bumper cars, performing sea lions, water acrobats, a ferris wheel, a roller coaster, and a circus

Penne d’Agenais

Picturesque ancient bastide hilltop village with a warren of tiny, steep lanes, lined with immaculate stone and brick houses. It has several restaurants and bars; L’Air du Temps & La Maison Sur la Place in particular, are extremely good and highly recommended. Bar Fabien is great for entrecote & frites, duck dishes, fantastic salads and other mouth-watering meals and is very child friendly. There are fantastic views from the medieval church at the top of the hill

La Croix De Loubas was a wonderful location for a big family holiday. The gite and the barn provided great accommodation and was well equipped. The swimming pool was a big hit with everyone but particularly the grand children who spent most of their time in the water. The local area was stunning with rolling hills and the beautiful River Lot. We hired boats and floated down the river in great style. We explored the local "bastides" and vineyards which were magnificent. We will certainly return to this outstanding area of France.
