Haut Quercy

A charming mill house situated right on the river in the most beautiful river setting with cliffs and trees around.  This is very much an untouched secret part of France of outstanding natural beauty.  There are six double bedrooms with bathrooms en suite all beautifully decorated and full of charm.  There is also a swimming pool set within old stone walls so you can swim in the pool or in the beauty of the river setting !

Your Mill House


These weeks will be open for discussion. This house will sleep ten people comfortably so this is for a smaller party than our Dordogne affair. We suggest that you make your own lunches and use the kitchen. The local markets are there to make the most of and it is fun being together preparing food and wine that you have chosen yourselves. We of course will be happy to cook for you should you so choose. Dinners would normally be cooked by Diana and I with excellent cheeses presented each night and all with carefully selected wines. We would suggest one night would be out in a favourite restaurant of ours.

The wines presented will come from the south west of France and from our cellar. It would not include Bordeaux unless there is an express desire to do so. The wines of south west France have tremendous variety and are of extraordinary quality. Some marriages we put together would be Château Richard Coup de Cœur with a Carles Roquefort. The Coup de Cœur was compared by Clive Coates MW to being like 75% Yquem and 25% Climens. That is quite an accolade. Or a nicely bottle-aged Prince Probus from Clos Triguedina with some grilled tender duck breast …
