About our home

Two years ago, I restored an ancient manor which belongs to my family since before 1750. This is a very large house set in the heart of a typical little French village, with enclosed shadowed garden, private pool (10x5 m) and outstanding views over the surrounding rolling countryside. We enjoy it as a second home as well as we rent it out of our vacation period (http://www.abritel.fr/offers-detail/france_midi-pyrenees_82/house_mirabel_611874.php).

Providing a high standard of style, comfort and privacy. The house has been fully restored and furnished in a traditional French style, carefully preserving the original charm, while providing all modern conveniences.

Each of six large bedrooms one of which double, with a surface between 25 to 40 m2, has its own bath or shower room. It is possible to lodge till 18 persons with corresponding large living room and dining room.

More about us

  1. We are a family of four. We live in Ramonville Saint Agne a little city of the East suburbia of Toulouse since September 2006. Before, we have lived near Paris for 17 years. Moving so, we had got the luck to go back in the birth area of both, my wife and me. My wife is working in a public scientific research institute as a chemical engineer. I am an agro-food engineer working in a farmers organization to promote French agricultural products in foreign countries, therefore I frequently travel around the world, however rarely in USA. We have two children, my 16 years old daughter living with us and a 19 years old boy stayed in Paris for studying in a Business University.
    I should like to have a two weeks holidays stay in California or Florida with my family, eventually accompanied with the family of my sister that means 2 adults and 2 teenagers in addition. Our house being for vacation, it is possible to organise a non simutaneous exchange.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

My ancient manor is located in the Quercy, a beautiful countryside area surrounding Cahors, 70 km far from Toulouse where is an international airport. Situated in the heart of Southern France, between the Mediterranean and the Atlantic Ocean, Toulouse is a cosmopolitan and enthusiastic large city, joyously mixing heritage and lifestyle, at once both modern and proud of the legacy of its past. It is also named Ville Rose in reference to the color of the bricks used in the ancient buildings since the Middle Age, architectural characteristics found everywhere in surrounding cities and countryside, as in my own house. Holidays in Quercy, Tarn et Garonne province, will permits you to escape to the unique charm of South west France, the essence of 'La France Profonde'. This charming rural, has a rich culture and dramatic history. Offering the chance to relax into it's gentle pace of life, while providing plenty to see and do. Its gastronomy is worldwide famous: wines, duck or goose 'foie gras', 'cassoulet', cheese, fruits...
