Montcabrier, Lot, Occitanie
Holiday rentals in rural south-west France for 2 to 8 persons. Perfect for walkers and country lovers. Peaceful secluded location, near the Lot river valley and within easy reach of the Dordogne & Lot tourist sites.

Fraysse Haut is an old Quercy farmstead situated in the hills between the charming riverside town of Puy l'Evêque and the bastide village of Montcabrier, and just 38 km from the medieval town of Cahors, which gives its name to the wine region around us.

A well equipped modern kitchen makes it suitable for long vacations as well as short breaks. For up to 8 people, there is extra accommodation in the adjacent building, the Towe...

We really enjoyed staying at the barn with Sheila. The accommodation is very nice and we spent many peaceful days just laying in the sun and relaxing. The barn is very 'rural' but the local restaurants and shops are easy to find.

Management response:

Glad you enjoyed your short stay. The rural location is a feature of our property, we love it and are happy to share it with you! Shops and restaurants are 5 km away in Puy l'Evêque, as stated in the description.

Sheila and Dan were very welcoming, providing us with everything that we needed. Renting the Barn and the Tower provided members of ours group with 'their own space'. Accommodation was comfortable and spotlessly clean with all the necessary equipment needed for self catering. Pool area is wonderfully relaxing and a necessity in hot weather. An ideal location to explore the...
