About this property

Farmhouse with Private Solar Heated Pool. This villa is in a village setting.

On the edge of a picturesque village, set in nearly an acre of enclosed mature garden is a charming oaked beamed 18th century farmhouse which has superb views of wooded hills in one of the most unspoilt and fascinating areas in France.

Situated in the centre of the natural park region with medieval market towns, prehistoric caves, and walking in the wonderful Lot and Cele valleys.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend it to other people. The owners were very thoughtful and kind and on our arrival had left some provisions for us such as bread, beer, wine, cheese, ham and butter, which was very welcome after our journey. They were helpful throughout our stay, advising us on places to visit and so on.

We particularly loved the swimming pool, which was solar heated. There were plenty of outdoor sitting areas with tables and parasols where we could read or enjoy our meals in the sunshine.

9.3 / 10 Lumsden Family 29 August, 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at Espedaillac. We are a family with an older daughter of 18 and a younger son of 11. Jean and Frank the owners were delightful, and very helpful in every way. Their farmhouse is beautiful, with a huge amount of character and in a very beautiful situation, very quiet with lovely spacious gardens and fruit trees.
Inside the property was very clean and the kitchen kitted out to a very high standard with every piece of equipment you would want. The pool is large and very clean, our son loved the games room with table tennis badminton and football table. We all loved playing Boules with Jean and Frank and Lissa the dog. In all a lovely holiday and we look forward very much to visit again, thank you Jean and Frank!
