Farmhouse, with Pool, Tennis Court and Stunning Views set in 40 acres

Bel Arbre is a delightful house and much loved family home, set in a wonderful position, facing south, sitting amongst forty acres of its own fields, woods and fruit trees. Physically situated about 25 k northwest of Cahors, and 6 K from the attractive little town of Cazals, Bel Arbre is in reality a little piece of heaven with its own, very special tranquility.

It is welcoming at every season, each of which is different and delightful. The area is rich in both history, and local produce (which is abundant in local markets). It is close to Les Arques, with its restaurant, La Recreation, made famous by the recent book “From Here You Can’t See Paris.

The farmhouse is made up of two adjoining houses, and the thick walls make it cool in summer, and warm in winter (the central heating is terrific). One great advantage is that two families can live there together, but with a degree of separation, with their own bathrooms and kitchens.

An outstanding feature is the old bake house which overlooks the pool, next to the house. This has been converted to provide a barbecue area at a lower level, on the entrance stones to the old oven (still more or less intact), together with a dining area. The long table and benches are extremely convivial, and wonderfully shaded when the midday sun is at its hottest. It also catches the last rays of the setting sun, as it sinks amongst the pine trees.

The salt-filtered swimming pool is 11 x 5 meters, and has a springboard, and a bubble cover for spring and autumn, when nights tend to cool the pool down. The pool is surrounded by a childproof safety fence, with two entrances. There is also an all weather tennis court, close to the house, but tucked behind one of the barns. Undercover parking available.

WEST WING. The spacious kitchen/dining room has a large convivial refectory table, is very well equipped, and has a fridge-freezer and dishwasher. There is a tiny laundry room with a washing machine and tumble drier, and a separate cloakroom and WC.

The kitchen and dining room look through an open plan fireplace into the well furnished sitting room. Both rooms have double French windows to the terrace and pool. You'll find a mixture of loved books, informational books, local interest books, children’s books, and books left by guests to add to the richness of choice.There are also maps of local walks and games and puzzles for the odd rainy day.

The principal bedroom with ensuite bathroom has a king sized bed.
It has a door leading to a wisteria clad terrace overlooking the pool and superb views to the south. One bedroom has four bunk beds and another a double bed, with shared bathroom.

EAST WING. Downstairs, the large, open-plan L-shaped living room has a piano. It also has a small kitchen area, with fridge freezer, and opens onto the terrace. Upstairs one bedroom has a kingsize bed, the other a double bed and an additional single bed and a bathroom. The 3 bathrooms have baths with showers,
