Le Mas de Tresse | Self Catering, Holiday Cottage with Private Heated Swimming Pool, Cahors in the Lot.

Lovingly restored Self Catering Holiday Cottage with Private Heated Swimming Pool, situated in the pretty village of St Medard, near the famous market town of Cahors in the Lot.

Le Mas de Tresse Holiday Cottage has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms. Sleeps 2-5 Guests plus a baby.

On the edge of the very pretty hamlet of St Medard, deep in the country, this delightful self catering holiday cottage, with private heated swimming pool, is situated in a haven of greenery and nestled in superb gardens where the cicadas sing. The self catering holiday cottage is beautifully appointed with every attention to detail, fully furnished, extremely well equipped and ideally situated for exploring this wonderful region of France. Situated in the grounds of the owners own house, the holiday cottage has its own separate parking area and guests would be quite private. Ideally sleeping 4 guests with additional accommodation suitable for a child sleeping on the sofa bed. The owners are very happy to welcome you with a local aperitif.

The private heated swimming pool is a particular feature situated on a higher level and slightly away from the holiday cottage itself. It has an amazing cover which can be opened so that the swimming pool is half roofed for cooler days and slides right back to make the pool completely open for those long, sunny days of summer. The cover is extremely simple and easy to use and the pool should be left covered and locked when no-one is swimming. Access to the private swimming pool is gained through a lockable gate, thus ensuring young children can run around the garden in safety.

St Medard is a delightful hamlet where you will find a famous restaurant called Le Gindreau where one can eat on the terrace overlooking fantastic views and the food is exquisite, but expensive. A perfect setting for that very special occasion. The nearest village for general shopping is Catus which has a bustling, lively market every Tuesday and a large, pretty lake for boating and swimming. The bustling, medieval town of Cahors, situated on the river Lot, is only 15km away.

This delightful self catering holiday cottage is extremely popular with all our clients and usually gets booked up early for the following summer season. If you would like to book this property for your holiday in 2020 please contact us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

“We have arrived home after our trip to Le Mas de Tresse, we had a lovely time and looking forward to next year already, please go ahead and send us the booking form for 2018!” Wendy

“Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, will return.” Mr & Mrs Hampson

We spent 2 weeks in the Mas de Tresse. We found the gite, which is beautifully situated, lived up to all our expectations. It was clean, practical, well equipped and the owners kind and helpful. The swimming pool carved out of the rock by the owner was superb. There is no shortage of places to visit and excellent restaurants to suit all purses. What more could one ask? Perfect holiday.” Whitmore Family
