Traditional stone built property with heated pool

Summary

"Mas du Rocher": a charming 19th century property built on bedrock along the river Lot.

Description

Mas du Rocher : a property built on bedrock along the river Lot. The property is situated on the highest point of the village of Calvignac – a charming medieval village in the Southwest of France. Around 1865 the house was a stable for livestock, with a stone bread oven next to the stables. The original buildings are probably much older. The property was not occupied for several years. The major part of our photos are dated January 2022. During the month of February 2022 the rooms and the grounds of the property will be refreshed were necessary.

Next to the house is the 7x3 metre heated swimming pool - with a large covered terrace and small outdoor kitchen, with a second covered terrace next to the kitchen. There is a further terraced area with lounge set for the "apero" with breathtaking views over the river valley.
The house itself is suitable for 8 adults and 2 small children.
There is a converted ‘pigeonnier’ next to the house - a charming outbuilding with private shower room and toilet - suitable for two more guests. Rest assured, this can only be rented together with the main house, at a supplement of €300 per week.

This is a charming and quirky house and therefore difficult to describe – but here’s our description to help:

First floor - bedrooms and the bathrooms
There are four bedrooms in the main house – the master bedroom having a spacious en suite bathroom, with bubble bath, shower, toilet and His and Her sinks.
There is also a first floor family shower room with shower and sink, and separate toilet. And next to these four bedrooms an open plan mezzanine with twin beds.

Ground floor
Comprises of the kitchen, dining room, living room and a separate toilet.
The kitchen contains the village's original bread oven - once used by the whole village to bake bread every week.
The beautiful stone vault and the iron shutter that marks the entrance to that part where the bread was baked give it a very unique look. The kitchen is fully equipped, including a large oven with grill plate.

In the dining room a large dining table with chairs and a wood stove for the chilly evenings for the early and late seasons (central heating available on demand). Adjacent to the dining room is the living room with sofa and TV.

Poolside / outside
With outdoor shower and a terrace with sunbeds and sunshades.
Adjacent to the pool terrace is a further covered terrace and a small outdoor kitchen. Next to the outdoor kitchen a separate shower room with toilet.
The pool terrace leads to some steps to a small terrace with lounge set, located at the highest point of the village. From here a stunning view over the valley of the river Lot.

A second (small) covered terrace is located right next to the kitchen. Ideal for relaxing or a nap after a good meal! From this terrace, or directly accessible from the house, there is a large outdoor dining table with chairs and parasol. And of course, there is a BBQ and a ping-pong table available. For those who like to work out during their holidays: some fitness equipments are at your disposal.

The house is located on the highest point of a medieval village, making it difficult – but not impossible – to reach. After you have passed the entrance gate of the house, you can park 1 or 2 cars at the property. However, it is easier to use the public car park at the lower level of the village.
