The house

  • Quiet, rural area with some agricultural activity

The Atelier is a former workshop that has been transformed into a cosy holiday home for a family or two couples.
Every room is on the same level, there are two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with two single beds. a luxurious bathroom with shower and toilet.
In the spacious living room you can relax in front of the woodburner, television or play boardgames at the table.
Due to the open plan the chef in the kitchen is always connected to the rest of the company and his or her glas can be refilled easily. Hard work needs to pay off don't you think?
Eating at the kitchen table, plate on your lap or rather on the terrace, I know what I would choose!
The fire pit doubles as a BBQ place and will get out the primitive side of every man.
The terrace offers plenty of space to sun, and if it gets to hot the pool is just around the corner.
You can find secluded corners all over our domaine to sun or to read a book against an old tree.

Availability of 'L'Atelier'

Holiday home the Atelier is located at the end of a plateau and surrounded by trees, secluded and peaceful yet only 2 km to the bakers in the village of Beauville. although the Atelier is attached to the main house there is plenty of privacy for both.
The Quercy Blanc countryside is formed by chalkstone hills and fertile valleys, behind every hill your heart will jump for joy when yet another fantastic sight is revealed. That the rivers the Lot and Garonne are floating through this county is a dead give away, but is is nice to take a little cruise, or stroll along the banks.
Fortified white villages with their red tiles are mostly situated on the top of a hill and are well preserved. Penne d' Agenais is a fine example of his and certainly worth a visit. Wether you travel by car, motorbike, bike or on foot to discover this area there are plenty of maps available to guide you.
Waking up after a quiet nights sleep, having breakfast on the terrace and figuring out the plans of the day.... visit a town, a village having lunch under an old Plane tree will make everyone happy. a brisk walk to loose some of those calories, climbing a tower or visiting a castle. And back to Loste it is, dipping in the pool and moving back into the shade with a glass of wine. Of course you will not doze off... nooo... but it will allow you to do some thinking.

If this picture suits you, well you can book your holiday here!

    Schitterende locatie, heel rustig en veel respect voor privacy. Mooi afgewerkte gite in de pigeonier. Heel vriendelijke ontvangst, en nuttige tips voor uitstappen van de eigenaars. Prachtige pittoreske dorpjes in de nabije omgeving.

    We hebben een geweldige week gehad met z'n vieren in gite l'atelier. De gite is zeer sfeervol en luxe ingericht. Met de tips van Ruud en Linda hebben we de highlights van de omgeving gezien. Zeer mooi landschap, heeft wat weg van Toscane maar dan zonder te veel toeristen. In onze week was het goed warm en hebben we dagelijks genoten van het fijne zwembad en het mooie uitzicht vanuit ons terras. We onthouden deze mooie rustige vakantieplek!

    Warm (letterlijk en figuurlijk) onthaal door Ruud en Linda! De duiventil is echt wauw! We hadden een fantasische vakantieweek. Veel te beleven in een prachtige omgeving. Kortom het was top!

    Comment from Ruud & Linda van Lammeren-Verschooten

    Jullie waren eveneens heel aangename gasten die duidelijk zin hadden om een fijne vakantie te hebben. Was een genoegen om daar aan bij te dragen.

Restaurants, food & wine

If there is one thing you do not need to worry about it is food and drink, wether you love to sit down with the local tradesmen or if you are looking for a michelin star restaurant it is all here. Finding a bad restaurant is an art in itself.

This region produces Cahors wines and there are a number of famous vineyards and the farmers are always welcoming you to taste. You will be surprised at the deals you can make for very good wines.

Every village has it's own weekly fresh market and are certainly worth a visit, believe me the tomatoes do taste differently due to the sun.

In the summer months Beauville hosts a friday night market where you can order your favourite meal at the stands of local producers. Sit yourself down at long tables, listening to live bands, the evening will fly by.


Holiday home the Atelier is situated in a rural area and provides a fine base from which you can plan your trips. No matter how or what you want. There are many routes available and we are here to show you the best of them. there are golfcourses, lakes to swim in, architectural buildings to visit or even a boat tour will give you a different perspective of the landscape.
Take a look at the fortified villages and castles, enjoy the business on the open markets, antique and brocante, flowers or evening markets with lovely food and live music.

You need more people around you?
No problem, Agen and Villeneuve sur Lot are only 25km away nice shopping!
Even Toulouse and Cahors are only 1 hour away.

For the kids there is a Walibi with waterpark in Agen, you can walk through the treetops or explore caves and swim in a lake nearby Montaigu de Quercy.

You see, we got something for everyone and will gladly share the inside tips!

  • Bicycle
  • Near hiking trails
  • Near ATB trails
  • Near riding
  • Near theme park
