The house

  • Quiet, rural area with some traffic

The cottage is a compact but cozy little house in a 200 year old stone pigeonnier (pigeon tower).
On the ground floor is a small open kitchen (2 burner stove and fridge) with a sofa and dining table. From the kitchen window you have beautiful views of the surroundings and the idyllic sunken garden with pool.
The shower room with sink and WC is also on the ground floor. The bedroom is on the first floor, with a double bed and DVD-player (and stacks of DVD's).

Barbecue, garden furniture, including sunbeds by the pool, hammocks and parasols are available.

Your cell phone will work in our field and (not always) in the pigeonnier. There is also broadband Wi-Fi in the pigeonnier.

Our pigeonnier is centrally located between the Lot, Tarn-et-Garonne and Lot-et-Garonne and also ideal for a short stay when you are looking for a house in this beautiful region.

Availability of 'Le Pigeonnier de Villebourgon'

Lauzerte is a beautiful medieval bastide town in the charming Quercy Blanc region. It is located approximately 2 km away from us. From our garden it is just visible.
The pigeonnier is part of an 18th century farmhouse on a southern slope with stunning views of the countryside and wooded hills. We live in the original house, which lies at some distance from the pigeonnier. Our grounds (1 ha) consists of garden, vegetable garden, meadow (where our donkeys Gypsy and Soleil live) and some woodland. The garden offers ample opportunities for sunbathing, but also space under the large old trees to sit or lie down and relax. There are several high hedges between our house and pigeonnier which give our guests privacy.
The pool is located in a sunken and enclosed garden at the foot of the pigeonnier. Apart from a few hours per day (usually between 17 and 19 h we use the pool ourselves) the pool is for your private use.

    Dit was ons tweede keer in deze gite. Het is ons weer prima bevallen.

    Werkelijk een prachtige plek; de duiventoren is mooi praktisch ingericht, alles wat je nodig hebt is er.
    De slaapkamer boven is verrassend groot naar verhouding en de kleine badkamer heeft een prima douche, toilet en wastafel. We hebben genoten van ons open keukentje en de schitterende uitzichten. Buiten is er behalve veel ruimte om je heen een mooie oude plataan waaronder het heerlijk vertoeven is in de hangmatten. Het zwembad is prima en idyllisch aangelegd. Het departement Tarn Garonne en het aangrenzende Lot kent mooie natuur, veel wandelmogelijkheden, pittoreske dorpjes, stadjes, fijne restaurantjes maar ook veel rust. Nog niet overstroomd door toeristen.
    We hebben de eigenaren Emilie & Johan leren kennen als bijzonder vriendelijk en attent. Het was een warm bad en een unieke plek, we verheugen ons nu al op de volgende keer. Alors a bientot!

    prachtig gelegen plek. heerlijke tuin met zon en schaduw onder een reusachtige plataan, waar je hele dagen buiten kunt doorbrengen. in het bos achter de tuin was een wielewaal te horen. emilie en johan zijn zeer gastvrij en behulpzaam. we werden verwelkomd met een fles heerlijke rosé. de pigeonnier is knus, het bed prima. het zwembad is prettig als je na een dag op stap ( er zijn veel mooie wandelingen in de buurt, leuke golfbaan op 10 km afstand) terugkomt en wil afkoelen. internet was wat moeizaam, maar dat is op het Franse platteland een bekend probleem.

Restaurants, food & wine

Almost every village in the region organises one or more fêtes (=parties) in summer, where everyone can sit down for a small fee and enjoy the local cuisine and wine while entertainment is provided by local musicians.
Nearby you can visit the Coteaux du Quercy and Cahors vineyards. For those who don't mind driving a little further: Bordeaux, Bergerac, Fronton, Gaillac and Gascony.
There are plenty of small restaurants nearby to explore.


In Lauzerte but also in nearby villages such as Castelnau-Montratier, Montcuq and Montaigu de Quercy there is plenty to do. Markets such as the famous Sunday market in Montcuq, (outdoor) concerts and plays, flea markets, night markets, summer festivals (often with a repas-meals) marchés gourmands where you eat at long tables in the square what you've chosen in one of the many stalls.
Tennis courts and riding stables are nearby, a beautiful golf course is located 12 km away. Gliding and hot air ballooning over our area is magnificent. Fields to depart from are in short distance.
The area is also ideal for walking. We are happy to lend you our detailed hiking maps. The Santiago de Compostela route runs along Lauzerte and Montcuq.
