About the Owner/Advertiser, Mr Gary Stephens

Denise and I are the proud owners of Lagarde with our 2 gites found in the Cantal in a little corner of paradise. Having moved to France in 2010 we continue to live our dream. We love this area and love to share it with our guests whilst at the same time wanting to keep it a secret. Centrally located we have the good access to the rest of Europe and love to go exploring. We have warm summers with clean air and snow capped mountains in winter - 4 proper seasons. We feel truly blessed.

Year property purchased 2010
Why this location? We found this region just by chance. We actually found the house and came to visit then fell in love with the area.
Unique benefits of property The gites are situated slightly up from the main house giving our guests their privacy whilst at the same time being near enough if our guests need us for any reason. The 11.5 x 5 m swimming pool is situated directly in front of the gites and has a 32m sq wooden deck that over looks un spoilt countryside.

We are situated between the Lot valley and the Mountains de Les Volcans and also only 3 hours from the Mediterranean near Montpellier. Lots of medieval villages to visit, walking, cycling and horse riding are some of the many passtimes that you can experience locally. We have kyaking on the Lot 20 mins away.

We are lucky enough to host Stages for the Tour de France and due to the lack of motor traffic we have some beautiful cycling routes.
