Traditional Agenais charm meets contemporary flair at this uniquely styled maison in a characterful village with the most glorious views of the surrounding Lot-et-Garonne landscapes.

This old village house has been completely renovated to create a modern holiday home for up to 6 guests. Step through the tall glass doorway and down the steps to be greeted with chic interiors with a stylish open-plan lounge and kitchen below you and a mezzanine office space above. Upstairs, two doubles and a twin await with large windows framing the verdant vistas alongside two bathrooms, one of them en suite.

Step out of the sliding windows and be amazed by the gorgeous countryside as you gaze through the trees in the rustic garden. Sit back with a glass of local wine in the dappled shade or follow the old stone steps down to the swimming pool level with its decked terracing, sun-loungers and al-fresco lounge.

Stroll to the heart of the village in less than 200m where you can pick up simple groceries and fresh bread and admire the beautifully arcaded houses of the main square before stopping off for a coffee in the village café-bar. There are more lovely views as you follow the village’s Chemin des Remparts trail or come across other peaceful walking and cycling trails in the surrounding countryside.

Potter around idyllic villages and nearby market towns, soaking up the relaxing ambience of this slow-paced region and coming across a wealth of delicious local produce from melons, strawberries, tomatoes and prunes to cheeses, magret and foie gras, not to mention the many wines (Cahors is only an hour away)!

Canoe or kayak along the Lot and Garonne rivers, cycle the greenway by the Canal de la Garonne and spend time in the historic town of Agen with its daily covered market, exquisite architecture and grand cathedral, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Pick up some prunes steeped in Armagnac to take home and enjoy on your terraced garden overlooking the gentle scenery of the Agenais countryside.

  • It's wonderful staying in this old, pretty village - the main entrance opens straight out onto the road leading to the village centre and the main square is less than 200m away (no pavement).

With countryside views from its garden and terraced swimming pool, Maison Beaucharme is located in an old village in the Lot-et-Garonne department of southern France.

The traditional village house opens straight to the road leading into the village. Stroll along the road (no pavement) into the heart of the village (within 200m) and find the grocery (also selling bread), a café bar and pharmacy as well as a second-hand charity shop run by locals. The village has a turbulent history but nowadays it’s a very pretty place to stroll around with its 16th century church, village square and arcaded buildings. Follow the Chemin des Remparts for lovely views of the gentle landscapes around you whilst there are many wonderful walking and cycling trails across the nearby countryside.

Spend time visiting picturesque market towns and little villages including medieval Laroque-Timbaut (11km) with its restaurants, shops and old market hall, Roquecor (9km) with its gallery and Sunday morning market as well as characterful Frespech (9km). Heading north towards the River Lot, the incredibly attractive village of Penne-d'Agenais is worthy of a visit, as is hilltop Pujols (26km), classified as one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’.

Enjoy the riverside bastide town of Villeneuve-sur-Lot (28km) and its twice-weekly market and look out for summer water-based activities along the river near here and Castelmoron-sur-Lot (42km). Venturing south, the market town of Valence (25km) is near the banks of the Garonne and the Canal des Deux Mers passes through, a pleasant spot for canalside strolls and cycle rides.

The traditional town of Montaigu-de-Quercy (16km) hosts an atmospheric market on a Saturday morning, not far from Montaigu Plage with its sandy lakeside beach, summer swimming and other activities. Lauzerte (26km) is another one of France’s ‘Plus Beaux Villages’ – the Tour de France sometimes passes through whilst Monflanquin (46km) and Monpazier (58km) are two of the region's most beautiful bastide towns.

Of course, Agen (26km) is a must-visit, also by the banks of the Garonne, with its exquisite historic architecture,  half-timbered houses, grand cathedral (a UNESCO World Heritage site), Musée des Beaux-Arts and once again the Canal des Deux Mers. Try delicious prunes steeped in Armagnac and all sorts of other regional delights at the daily covered market or experience the main market on a Wednesday, Saturday or Sunday morning.

As well as Agen prunes, other specialities from this region include tomatoes from Marmande, melons, strawberries, asparagus, nuts, a variety of cheeses and of course foie gras, not to mention various wines from across the vineyards of Lot et Garonne and beyond, including the Malbec wineries of Cahors, just over an hour away by car.

As well as glorious walks and cycling opportunities, there is plenty to keep families busy across the Lot-et-Garonne and beyond. Just over a 15-minute drive away, look out for summer swimming and other activities by the sandy lakeside beach near Montaigu-de-Quercy (16km).

Tree-top adventurists will love the trails at Happy Forest (21km) alongside escape and laser games, mini golf, pony rides, a maze and animal park (some age restrictions apply). Just to the north, also around a 20-minute drive away, visit the animals at Z'Animoland, close to the fascinating Grottes de Fontirou.

The large theme park Walygator Sud-Ouest is another great attraction of this region, just south-west of Agen, with all sorts of exciting rides, shows and play areas.

Venture north to the Lot River for seasonal canoeing, kayaking and pedal boats near Villeneuve-sur-Lot and there are also canoeing/kayaking excursions along the Garonne from Agen.

Reviews

  • Happy to return!

    on 02/12/2022

    I stayed at Maison Beaucharme in 2022. The house was even better than the pictures. Extremely spacious, clean and well maintained. The living room is ideal for relaxing, with lovely views. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to move around in, with stools around the kitchen island, making it the perfect place to enjoy meals in a relaxed setting. The bedrooms are all spacious and comfortable with quality mattresses and luxurious bedding. The garden is beautiful, with an infinity pool overlooking the countryside. We enjoyed drinks around the pool and were also able to have our meals around the garden table as the weather was fabulous, sunny every day. My friends even swam every day. She recommended two particularly special restaurants that we had to drive to but were well worth the drive as they were exceptionally good and reasonably priced. I would definitely recommend this house and would be very happy to return to explore the area further.

  • It blew us away!

    on 14/07/2022

    We were blown away by the house! – such a great space with all the amenities you could wish for including a fabulous kitchen, comfy beds and a wonderful pool that had views forever.
    We visited several great restaurants and went on day trips to some lovely villages including venturing north to the Dordogne for a day. The village itself is friendly and pretty, with a little bar run by Phillipe where you can meet locals and visitors.
    The house had great WiFi which was needed for a few hours of work as well as entertainment for the kids after a day of touring and splashing in the pool.
    Such a great holiday with wonderful memories!

  • Highly recommend!

    on 21/01/2022

    I stayed at this beautiful house in the autumn of 2021. It is situated in a lovely town with all the amenities you need (pub, shop, chemist) as well as the most beautiful surroundings. The views from the townhouse itself are just breathtaking and I had several lovely morning runs in the surrounding undulating French countryside (felt very safe too). The house is spacious and modern but with traditional feel and features that give it a warm and comfortable vibe. The garden is perfect for eating out and the pool a nice size for a dip. We were lucky enough to eat at several wonderful local restaurants all within a short drive away at the hosts recommendation - local knowledge helps! There is so much to do in the area we didn't manage to fit it all in. A perfect place for a break long or short, for families or couples; I would highly recommend.
