This warm, friendly village Manor House in the Midi-Pyrénées is an ideal base from which to explore the Dordogne, Cele and Lot river valleys.

Designed with the kids in mind, within the old stone walls you’ll find entertainment aplenty - from the billiards room to books, toys and games. Outside the large lawned garden offers space for the little ones to roam, and the swimming pool offers a cool respite for the whole family. With both gas and charcoal grills, family dinner time can easily move outside into the fresh country air.

Adults will take pleasure in the wine cellar and gorgeous custom kitchen, with high-end appliances and rich butcher block counter-tops. This sprawling family villa offers many venues where you can enjoy that perfect glass of Cahors wine - two rustic dining areas, a deck and patio, or one of three casual living rooms.

Sitting between the towns of Le Bourg and Assier (2km), this family villa is nestled on the edge of the Causses National Park. Drive to Cahors (60km), a dramatic town surrounded by the River Lot, to discover the eponymous style of wine produced there. An adventurous spirit will find plenty to do - exploring the caves of Lascaux and Le Pech Merle, horseback riding, or simply going to one of the many weekly farmers markets in the local towns and villages.

Region

A relatively new addition to France, the Midi-Pyrénées was created to surround the cultural capital of Toulouse in the late 1970s. You might think that its relative youth would mean the Midi-Pyrénées is short on character or identity, but remember, this is France we’re talking about – the whole country is steeped in history and tradition. Encompassing parts of Gascony, Languedoc, the Gers and several others, you’ll get a varied slice of the whole French experience here, not least if you stay at one of our beautiful chateaux in the Midi-Pyrénées! And if you want to discover the best of what the region has to offer, our Midi-Pyrénées travel guide is here to show you where to go, what to eat and how you can make the best of your break with some amazing activities.

Reviews

  • Excellent villa

    on 02/01/2024

    We are a Spanish family who have spent nine days in this absolutely magnificent mansion - a really beautiful house with all the required home comforts. The surroundings and nearby towns are all fairytale medieval towns. We have visited many medieval villages, towns and historic sites. The host has been very detailed. We will undoubtedly repeat our stay for another Christmas soon - even Santa Claus visited us and left gifts for our children! Everything has worked correctly and perfectly. The house was beautiful and the service from Oliver's Travels was very good.



  • The most relaxing place for our family holiday

    on 26/09/2023

    Wow! What a beautiful home - it has truly been the most relaxing place for our family holiday. We are very sad to be going home - a big thank you for looking after us so well.

  • Beautiful old house

    on 12/09/2023

    Nine individuals, aged 20 to 79, from Suffolk, Kent, Wiltshire, Oxford and the Ribble Valley, all of whom were related and knew each other very well, had a most enjoyable but sadly too brief a time in this beautiful old house. Excellent weather, if at times a little too hot, so the pool was much used by the four younger members of the party. Many expeditions and scenery - stunning! Thank you again for a wonderful holiday.

  • Amazing stay

    on 16/08/2023

    Thank you so, so much - we had an amazing stay. What a beautiful house.

  • Did not disappoint

    on 08/07/2023

    When we failed to get tickets for our annual pilgrimage to Glastonbury we decided to treat ourselves to two weeks in luxury, and this wonderful house did not disappoint. Thank you for looking after us so well, we have had a brilliant time.

  • Amazing home

    on 09/06/2023

    Wow! What an amazing home! We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and have felt very much at home. The location has proven absolutely perfect for exploring places that we’ve not visited before and we have found some really excellent restaurants too! Thank you again for a truly Bon Vacances!

  • Lovely and well appointed house

    on 29/05/2023

    An excellent stay in a really lovely and well appointed house. It’s been a brilliant break for our family. Thank you so much for having us!

  • Wow! Wow! Wow!

    on 23/07/2022

    Wow! Wow! Wow! What a stunning place! The holiday was excellent. It was a pleasure to stay in such a wonderful home. We had a great time. The hosts were there for us every step of the way - we are sad to be leaving.

  • Superb!

    on 04/07/2022

    Great place for a family holiday! Beautiful house with large spaces that allowed us to spend a superb week without suffering from the heat wave (swimming pool + stone house that keeps it cool). The pool is great for kids with large steps and shallow water at first. We did not miss anything, the house really offers everything you need (bbq, super functional kitchen, dishes, baby chair, entertainment …). Superb!

  • Thank you.

    on 30/06/2022

    A big thank you for such a lovely holiday. We have loved the house as well as exploring the region - above all we have all been able to relax and enjoy time as a family. Thank you.

  • Absolutely Magnificent Manor House

    on 27/05/2022

    A super break in an absolutely magnificent Manor House! We look forward to returning again soon for a longer stay - thank you to the owner and family.

  • Beautiful house

    on 08/05/2022

    We have enjoyed a lovely holiday in this beautiful house. Very well equipped, it is perfect for a large family gathering. Ideally located, we have really enjoyed getting to know this wonderful area. Thank you.

  • The house is super!

    on 05/05/2022

    Maison Bourg is exactly as described - very well appointed with lots and lots of style. Communication with the owner was easy throughout and he provided all the necessary information throughout. The house is super, with suitable space for both adults and children.

  • An extremely pleasant stay

    on 04/05/2022

    Lovely manoir, decorated very tastefully. Very well equipped, absolutely nothing missing. An extremely pleasant stay, and ideal for gathering with several people (11 people for us). The owner has plenty of games and entertainment.

  • Even better than the photos

    on 27/04/2022

    It has been a perfect stay, the house was even better than the photos, the host and the services have been fantastic. The house is totally recommended and the surroundings are beautiful, for excursions and visiting charming towns.

  • We loved it and will return!

    on 25/01/2022

    Very good three-day stay for 12 people. Good explanations before and at check-in. Large, well heated and very nice rooms. Shops and walks nearby. We loved it and will return!

  • Excellent!

    on 30/12/2021

    Maison Bourg is beautiful and welcoming. Everything is so well thought out and designed for the comfort of its guests down to the last detail. The listing and photo details are completely accurate. The added bonus - we came to spend Christmas with the family and a tree was installed and decorated, it was illuminated when we arrived. Excellent! We had a great time.

  • Perfect stay

    on 14/10/2021

    Perfect stay, this is our second time at Maison Bourg. Motocross fans find relaxation (billiards and the pool) and the other members of the group can take full advantage of the geographical location to go sightseeing. Recommended without hesitation. Thank you to the owners for hosting us and for their kindness. The manoir itself is very spacious, both young or older can find their corner (games, reading , music or TV) without disturbing the other. Excellent!

  • Super Weekend

    on 17/02/2020

    We would recommend Mason Bourg without any hesitation. A beautiful, spacious, comfortable property in a lovely region. We were able to spend a great long weekend with friends and family of varying ages, all of whom were so well accommodated at Maison Bourg. We will certainly come back again in the future.

  • Fabulous house, charming area, great host

    on 01/01/2020

    Our stay was perfect, the house is stunning, we experienced it in winter so we could enjoy the 3 fireplaces! Communication with Nick (our host) was excellent and our local contact (Philippe) was very kind and always available. When we ran out of wood for the fireplaces, Nick/Philippe managed to have some more delivered on New Year's Eve and in a short notice. Thank you for this great stay, we can only recommend this house!

  • Great house for family Christmas

    on 24/12/2019

    We were able to enjoy a wonderful few days as a family in the days before Christmas, soaking in the ambience of this beautiful property and warmed by the
    lovely log burning fires – all in all a wonderful home, and some fantastic family days together. Thank you!

  • A Great Place

    on 27/10/2019

    A really great place both for groups of friends and for the whole family. The house is amazing, like a castle, very comfortable and very welcoming. We would highly
    recommend Maison Bourg and look forward to returning again.

  • Great holiday in super house

    on 23/09/2019

    A great family holiday - thoroughly enjoyed by all who stayed. Lovely character house with great pool and indoor sports facilities – and so much to see and do in this beautiful area, We loved it! The host Nick and property manager Philippe could not have been more helpful throughout the process. Many thanks.

  • A True Experience

    on 15/09/2019

    Maison Bourg is truly an experience. It is a lovely stone manor house with all the amenities of a fine property. We were five women from three countries who made
    this our vacation home for one week. Each of us was pleased to have our own bedroom, and the bathroom facilities were excellent. We often found ourselves in the warm and well-appointed kitchen....breakfast, dinner, afternoon tea, and an evening glass of wine. We cooked a couple of evenings and ate in the vaulted dining room...super fun. The immediate grounds and the area surrounding the house are really lovely and interesting to explore. This is a quiet French hamlet with a tourist free atmosphere. Although a market is nearby, a car is necessary to make the most of this location. We made several day trips including Rocamadour, Cahors, Figeac, and St. Cirq Lapopie. Last but not least, the property caretaker Philippe was
    extremely nice and very helpful. Merveilleux!

  • Stunning house

    on 24/08/2019

    We had a fantastic stay at Maison Bourg. We ended up arriving so late, but this was no problem at all. The house and facilities were fantastic. Very well equipped! Beds very comfortable and clean. Wonderful area with lots to see and do. I would recommend without any hesitation.

  • A Stunning House

    on 06/07/2019

    An absolutely stunning house with amazing amenities and a fantastic house manager in Philippe. The house was perfect for us and our family. It kept us cool in
    what has been the hottest June/July on record in France. Enough space for 8 adults to not feel on top of each other and a safe garden for our dogs. The pool was lovely. Thanks again for accommodating us and our needs!

  • We will be back!

    on 23/06/2019

    A sumptuous property in the heart of the Lot countryside, it is large, elegant, very tastefully furnished and particularly well equipped. The owner Nick and his local property manager Philippe were always available and happy to provide recommendations for the best restaurants and local producers. We will definitely be back!

  • Stunning!

    on 08/05/2019

    Great stay in a beautiful house. The equipment is top notch. The welcome perfect from both Nick and Philippe!!

  • Superb house

    on 08/10/2018

    It was a great pleasure to stay in this beautiful old house so tastefully renovated. The charm of the stone, the beams, the dimensions of the rooms and their refined layout, all contributed to making our stay extremely pleasant and truly memorable. Not
    forgetting the good times spent around the pool under a summer sun. The welcome from owner Nick and property manager Philippe was warm and courteous. Thank you.

  • Spectacular!

    on 19/08/2018

    A beautiful house and surroundings.

  • Beautiful House

    on 08/07/2018

    The house is beautiful and very large. Great kindness of Philippe who takes care of the reception. Very comfortable rooms, excellent bedding. A real holiday home.....

  • A Wonderful Holiday

    on 27/06/2018

    The house is beautiful, and has everything you could need for a wonderful family holiday. All the towns and villages around it are beautiful. I am in love with this area and I will surely come back very soon.

  • Magnificent!

    on 23/05/2018

    Magnificent manor house with decoration, equipment and a swimming pool fully consistent with the photos. Cleanliness and perfect welcome. We loved our visit, we thank you!

  • Lovely Stay!

    on 11/05/2018

    Sumptuous home ideal for holidays with large family or friends in a beautiful region!

  • Everything we needed for a fabulous stay

    on 16/10/2016

    Maison Bourg offered everything we needed for a fabulous stay in the Le Lot region of France. The house is spacious and well-appointed, and accommodated our family of nine, including three children, and six adults. The perfect place to celebrate a family milestone. We cooked here every night, and the kitchen is well-stocked to produce wonderful meals from the many local food products available at the farmers' markets and artisanal groceries. Great wine, and the house offered a fine dining atmosphere with big tables for seating all of us to share our meals. The beds were amazingly comfortable. Plenty of room for all of us, and all the various ages of our family.

  • A first-class property

    on 25/09/2016

    Before our stay, we had exchanged various emails with Nick the owner who was more than willing to answer any queries we had prior to our arrival. Phillipe, the property manager, greeted us at the property as arranged, showed us around the beautiful house and its many, wonderful features and explained everything we needed to know for our stay. The property itself is truly first class. The pictures really do not do justice to the sheer size and space available for our family of 12. There are so many thoughtful features to accommodate all sorts of ages and interests from the games room for our teenagers to the vast collection of DVDs for our younger children when they needed a rest from the pool! All of the bedrooms are extremely spacious and comfortable with en-suites and bathrooms that easily accommodated our large party. The many different living areas were perfect for people to find their own quiet space, including a wonderful outside terrace with numerous seating, parasols and loungers. Details such as a filled 'beer fridge', which you were simply asked to re-fill like for like, was a super idea and enabled us to settle in and enjoy the property straight away. The area itself has so many things to offer. Our family, ranging from 10 to 71, spend a wonderful day canoeing along the Dordogne and we visited many attractions and local towns. We found a great pizzeria in Figeac and lovely restaurants in Gramat and Martel. There is also a fantastic pizzeria take-away just down the road from the house which provided us with a break from cooking on a couple of occasions! All in all, we had a wonderful stay and were very sorry to leave. The house is superb for a large party and we couldn't recommend it enough.

  • An excellent property

    on 17/08/2016

    Nick and his French representative Phillipe were wonderful people to deal with. The house was very comfortable. The pool was excellent for the grandchildren. The surrounding area fascinating. The home was very comfortable for our party of 7 adults and 2 children. The bedrooms large, the beds comfortable, abundant dining areas inside and out. The nearby villages have good supermarkets etc with a good pizza place about 1 km away.

  • A memorable time!

    on 07/07/2016

    Dear Nick and Philippe, my family and I have enjoyed the house very much. It is so well set up for relaxation and enjoyment for the whole family. We have explored the region by car, had meals out and also loved being by the pool, playing chess, pool, watching movies, soccer, cooking and eating in the 'cave '. All in all a memorable time in this beautiful part of the world. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful home away from home. Cheers Renea

  • A house full of surprise

    Created on 06/07/2016

    We had a fabulous stay! The house was superbly catered for both our young children (6 months and 3 years old), our friends (in their 30s) and my parents (in the their 70s). The fabulous pool was the hub of our day times and the games room the hub of our evenings, the older generation still had 3 sitting rooms to choose from for quiet reading and chatting. Each room has been cleverly and lovingly furnished, you cannot imagine waking in a more beautiful bedroom. We were a short drive from canoeing and rock climbing which was great fun. The only negative of this place is having to go home!

  • Magnifique demeure tout confort dans une région magnifique

    on 23/06/2016

    La Maison Bourg est à tout point de vue somptueux. Dès les premiers échanges mail avec le propriétaire, on se sent en confiance. Il y a tout sur place.... même une cave et l'équipement ad hoc (verres, carafes, ...), une chaîne hi-fi sur laquelle on peut brancher une source externe, WiFi, Netflix, cheminées à "gogo".... Bref, une demeure où il fait bon vivre, avec un grand espace cuisine très bien aménagé, d'immenses espaces de détente et loisirs si bien qu'on se croirait seul dans la maison tout en étant nombreux ! Pour la piscine, l'eau mériterait d'être chauffée à cette saison, mais c'est un détail. Endroit idéal pour découvrir Rocamadour, le gouffre de Padirac et la vallée de la Dordogne entre autres. Le village de Gramat mérite aussi un détour pour ses commerces pour certains très authentiques. Merci aussi à Philippe pour son accueil et sa gentillesse. Ne changez rien, continuez ainsi Nick et Philippe ! Nous reviendrons très certainement

  • A great house!

    on 10/06/2016

    We have stayed at Maison Bourg with another couple of friends during a round trip through the south of France. The house has been renovated and combines the charm of the old building with what you find as the best in modern comforts. All done with great taste. It added a great deal to our experience in the region. The grounds around the property, the spaces inside, all help creating a great ambiance. Le Bourg is a very small village, but an easy drive to the attractions within the area, like Rocamadour, Padirac caves (don't miss it!), Figeac and Sarlat.

  • Merveilleux séjour

    on 24/10/2015

    Nous sommes venus fin Octobre pour les vacances de la Toussaint et nous avons tellement adoré que nous sommes revenus pour les vacances suivantes à Noël. La maison est vraiment magnifique: les 5 chambres sont à la fois très spacieuses et décorées avec beaucoup de goût, chacune dans son style, avec une grande hauteur sous plafond et de larges poutres apparentes qui contribuent également à leur charme. Les salles de bains sont toutes superbes, avec une fois encore un style different pour chacune. Le salon principal, très spacieux mais très cosy donne envie de rester toute la journée dans la maison ; la cuisine est également très spacieuse et très bien équipée. La maison dispose également de deux autres salons plus petits, mais tout aussi plaisants pour terminer la soirée au coin du feux. Enfin, une salle de jeux avec un magnifique billard pour ceux qui aiment. Le temps étant particulièrement clément, nous avons pu déjeuner presque tous les jours sur la terrasse du jardin, qui est également très bien orientée pour déjeuner au soleil! Enfin, Philippe nous a accueilli avec une très grande gentillesse et une grande efficacité pour les moindres détails (bois pour le feux, recommandations pour les fermes proches pour s'alimenter en bons produits,...). La maison est située à 1,5km de Lacapelle Marival, ce qui est vraiment très pratique pour les courses (une coopérative agricole avec de très bons produits, un supermarché et une bonne boulangerie). Bref, une maison magnifique que nous recommandons les yeux fermés, et dans laquelle nous reviendrions avec très grand plaisir.

  • A special house

    on 06/10/2015

    We have all been so busy just absorbing your fabulous home and all that it has to offer. Our friends are thrilled and over the top on it's charm, location and surroundings. From the lovely pool, which we have used every day, to the pool/dart room and the luxury of the kitchen when preparing meals, it is in a word "gracious"! And the one fabulous touch that I have to comment on is finding not one but two containers of HP sauce in the fridge. Lol. That ‎really was quite special. Thank you also Nick, for your complete and thorough list of information and recommendations. It has been so helpful as we follow your guidance when we decide on places to go or restaurants to visit.

  • Beautifully renovated stone manor

    on 02/10/2015

    Met by the informative and charming Phillipe and toured through the house. Very tastefully and lavishly renovated and updated. Modern kitchen complete with every top of the line appliance. Large fireplaces with comfy couches and chairs, lots of Chinese antiques and curios. Beautiful game room, with new large pool table. Great patio and swimming pool. It was an absolute treat to spend 5 days here with friends, I highly recommend Maison Bourg!
