Surroundings

La Plaine Basse is a spacious house, completely built with natural, local materials and in an authentic way. It is situated at about 4 km from Lauzerte, a medieval bastide town ("un des plus beaux villages de France") . Here you can eat out at various restaurants. Especially recommendable is the pizzeria "l'Etna", here completely in place because of the Tuscan-like landscape and especially because of the delicious pizzas, baked on a wood oven! (I point this out to you because this is the business of our son Marc). Also nearby, the cosy Montcuq ( with the "cosiest market" on Sunday morning). The Quercy, with its capital Montcuq, is a beautiful rural region with a lot of variation and a sloping landscape. Fields, meadows and forests alternate, with old villages and farms in between. It's a really nice area to explore or walk around...... Everyone agrees that we made the right choice at the time to come here, and after a few weeks of holidaying here, almost everyone feels like looking for something in this area as well. Over 25 years ago, we constructed a large irrigation lake (2 ha) that has gradually become one with nature. Here you can swim or have fun. The enjoyment of the lake is shared with some other guests of our family, but there is plenty of space and we have built a jetty with swimming steps especially for the guests of the Plaine Basse. There is a picnic table and a barbecue. It is not next to our house, but you can get there easily by car. (Except after a rainstorm). If you like peace and quiet, it is also nice to be at home on the terrace. There is a large well maintained garden. The lawn (playground) is well kept, There are also in the season many cultural events, music evenings, exhibitions, community meals etc. in Lauzerte and in the immediate vicinity, if you want to go out. We are always willing to inform you of course. Also trips in the beautiful surroundings are very worthwhile! There are several golf courses in the area and in Lauzerte there is a tennis court.
Don't think that it is only beautiful here in the high season! The beauty of the landscape and the tranquillity are certainly not seasonal here. For long walks or exploring the surroundings, it certainly does not have to be 40°C. We ourselves still enjoy the beautiful landscape and we continue to enjoy each season. So also the other seasons, winter, spring and autumn, highly recommended (also because our house is comfortable and well heated if necessary (central floor heating).
To really convince you of all this, there is only one thing to do: book!

    Met onze drie kinderen hebben we een prachtig mooie week beleefd te midden van de zonnebloemen. Het privé meertje bleek een waar paradijs, aangezien we dagelijks en vaak zelfs meerdere keren per dag konden genieten van verfrissende water. De omringende omgeving is prachtige met schilderachtige dorpjes. Marjan en Roel hebben op voortreffelijke wijze gezorgd dat we ons uiterst welkom voelden in dit prachtige verblijf.

    Comment from Marjan den Bakker

    Bedankt voot de fijne recensie ! Altijd weer een plezier als de mensen hier hebben genoten! Daar doen we het voor Atijd weer welkom, Marjan den Bakker..

  • 10 stars

    Wat een heerlijk huis, van alle gemakken voorzien en dan ook nog met een prachtig uitzicht waarbij de gastvrije eigenaren Marjan en Roel de kers op de taart zijn.
    Ideaal gelegen voor wandelaars want je kunt alle kanten op en dan ook nog het mooie authentieke dorpje Lauzerte met meer dan genoeg mogelijkheden om heerlijk te lunchen en/of dineren.
    We hebben ontzettend genoten vanaf de aankomst tot vertrek.
    Oh en tip van Flip; vergeet alle apps die het weer denken te kunnen voorspellen (van een voorspelde week met vrijwel alle dagen regen bleek ter plaatse dat we vrijwel alle dagen van de zon hebben kunnen genieten met enkele dagen een kleine korte bui)

    Comment from Marjan den Bakker

    Bedankt voot jullie leuke recensie. Ja, die weersverwachting zit er nogal eens flink naast ! Tot gauw, groeten, Roel en Marjan.

    Heel mooi ingericht, in een prachtige omgeving, super aangename gastheren en voorzien van alles (en nog veel meer) wat je nodig hebt! Het meer is ook echt een topper!

    Comment from Marjan den Bakker

    Bedankt en altijd weer welkom!

Restaurants, food & wine

The house is situated on the border of the Tarn et Garonne, the Lot and the Lot et Garonne, in the region of the Quercy Blanc, with its capital Montcuq. There are many wine routes and domaines with their caves, where you can taste (and buy!) (Cahors, Fronton, Bergerac, Côteaux de Quercy etc.)We live in a region where all kinds of fruit and vegetables are for sale at the farmer or on the nice local markets. A large choice of cheeses, foie gras and other delicacies (strawberries, grapes, apples, kiwis, cherries etc.) We ourselves are real lovers of pure, traditional products, so we can certainly advise you if you are looking for a good restaurant or a nice wine. Everywhere are nice markets and meals organized by the producers, where you can taste all the local dishes, while enjoying a good glass and an excellent ambiance.

Activities

In addition, on our own grounds (90ha), you can go hiking, fishing and, in the hotter season, swimming in clean and clear water in the aforementioned lake. A beautiful natural swimming water, so no chlorine and not in two strokes on the other side. For our guests and the fishermen among you, there is a rowing boat available. Right next to our terrain runs the famous pilgrim route to St. Jacques de Compostella (Spain). It is a nice walk from the Plaine Basse to Lauzerte or further, to Montcuq or Moissac. We also welcome Ebikers here, who can recharge their bikes for free. There are beautiful roads and paths everywhere to enjoy yourself! Furthermore, you can go horseback riding, swimming, play golf (Roucous, l'Espinasse, Auch, etc), tennis, canoeing and many other activities. Famous places around us are; Montcuq (12 km), Moissac ( 20km), Cahors (40 km), Montauban (30 km) and Toulouse (80 km). And then you can also just home to the (Dutch) TV. watch or chat with the family!

Further remarks

In the advertisement it says "swimming pool"; this means our little lake, (to indicate on the site that there is a private swimming facility.) We especially recommend you to take a look in the guestbook, here are experiences of guests; this is the best advertisement And if you are perhaps afraid of the blue algae in natural water; this is completely unknown here and will not be here either!
And if you are afraid of blue algae in natural water, it is completely unknown here and will not be here, in an environment without intensive livestock farming and with organic farming!
As for pet owners; here comes a long story; in principle, we prefer not to have them in the high season (but not excluded). We assume that your pet is house-trained, well brought up and therefore not a door-scratcher, bed-jumper etc., that your pet is not allowed in the bedrooms, that you bring your own bed and that you do not leave your pet alone in the house.
