“Delightful house which felt like home as soon as we arrived”

This is a charming house, spacious and beautifully appointed, we wanted for nothing. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped, everything one wanted was there. The utility room is ideal with reliable equipment and plenty of space. The sitting and dining rooms are elegant and comfortably furnished.
The bedrooms were perfect for our group of five adults, the en-suite bathroom with a separate shower, and the separate bathroom well placed for the other bedrooms. The deep roll-top bath was particularly popular and hot water was always available. The soft and plentiful towels added an air of luxury.
The gardens are lovely, with terraces allowing everyone space to be on their own if they so desire. The table tennis (wiff-waff?) table was particularly popular, with badminton running a close second. We also used the bicycles to gently meander around the village, the locals were very friendly and welcoming.
The next village, 5-6 minutes up the road has an incredably well equiped small supermarket with 24hr petrol pumps which, apart from a trip to the huge supermarket in Cahors on our first Monday, supplied all our needs. Two of the men in our party are excellent cooks and thoroughly enjoyed cooking dinner each evening. We liked everything about the house, gardens and village, we were not at all fazed by the village clock which we found most enjoyable, it's nice to know what the time is!
We would all love to return to The Couvent as we know that we would have a wonderful holiday.

Liked best: The sheer comfort and size of the propery
Liked least: Having to come home! An outside light by the stone steps to the front entrance would have been an asset (but in fairness, we were outside enjoying an amazing lightening storm when the thought occured to us.

“Lovely place to stay in the Lot”
Reviewed September 18, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

This truly is a lovely property to rent, exactly as described online and with a reliable and responsive owner. We found the village of Saint-Martin-de-Vers an ideal base because we had been to the Dordogne before and preferred the less touristy Lot valley to the south. Its principal town, Cahors, is far less self-conscious than the Dordogne's Sarlat. Consider carefully where you want to be, because there will be quite a lot of driving involved if you really mean to see the Dordogne area rather than the Lot.

Not having any businesses in the tranquil, picturesque village is also something to bear in mind. It requires a bit of organization on your part for provisions, but you will be rewarded by completely unspoiled surroundings. Above all don't miss market days in Cahors.

A special glory of the house is the terraced garden arrangement. Taking apperitifs and meals outside is both practical and a rare pleasure. Everything that is needed for cooking in is at your fingertips, and if the weather doesn't cooperate there is an attractive dining room.

Some may find the decoration scheme throughout a bit twee, with most horizontal surfaces over-occupied and a few too many artificial flowers, but these may easily be set aside and put back upon departure. All told, you really can't go wrong renting Le Couvent; it's quite beautiful and the price is fair.
