Le Couvent

Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Saint-Martin-de-Vers, Lot, Occitanie
A romantic old convent school house restored as a charming and elegant family home with a large, private garden in a beautiful medieval small village. In the stunning Lot region, with dramatic cliff top villages and near to the busy market towns of Cahors and Gourdon.

A holiday house full of character and charm - and a large garden with enticingly different areas to sit and relax.
It is positioned just on the outer edge of the village and the garden is tiered in three levels so that there are wonderful views of the village roof tops and the valley in which it sits. The Rivers Vers winds its way through the meadows.

Not far is the cliff-top village of St Cirq Lapopie - voted one of France's favourite villages, and the nearby small market town of Labastide Murat provides all the necessary shops, bank, restaurants and amenities. C...
