La Grange Fleurie is one of four beautifully converted outbuildings of La Domaine du Puech, an 18th century farmstead situated in a stunning hamlet high above the valley of the Auze river, which flows into the river Lot in the nearby village of St Projet.

Ideal for one couple, La Grange Fleurie is a spacious converted barn constructed of local schist stone with a slate fishtail tiled roof particular to the area, which has been sympathetically renovated to bring together the traditional features of the 18th century and the style of the 21st. There is a communal pool for use of guests.

The former farmstead known as “la Domaine du Puech Fleury” is in a magnificent setting with an abundance of historical and natural interest. Its wonderfully landscaped grounds, rich with ancient trees, interesting shrubs, palms and Mediterranean mimosas look out over stunning views of the Auze river valley below. At the turn of the 19th century, the hamlet and several of those surrounding it, was home to a religious sect known as ‘the floured ones’. A fascinating history surrounds them, elements of which are still visible today.

This remarkable site is home to 4 lovely gîtes, formerly outbuildings of the original 18th century farm. Each property has been converted to retain their individual original features whilst offering modern comfort, convenience and privacy, with its own access and private secluded garden with shared use of the 8 x 4 metre saltwater pool overlooking the valley.

Taken as a whole the Gîtes can sleep 15 people, which makes it an ideal holiday location for an extended family, a group of friends or a club.

Location

Cassaniouze, the nearest village only 5kms away, has a general store, boulangerie, café/restaurant and bank and nearby there is a large lake for swimming, fishing or hiring a pedalo.

A further 5kms takes you to Calvinet where you will find all the necessary services, pharmacy, bank, butchers and bakers. There is also the Hotel Beauséjour, one of only two Michelin starred restaurants in the Cantal and very good value.

Calvinet is renowned locally for it’s Christmas market and illuminations, so why not take a winter break in this beautiful unspoiled part of France?

The La Grange Fleurie is a short drive from Conques, which dates back to the 9th century and is magnificently preserved. Classified among the most beautiful villages in France and a UNESCO “World Heritage Site”, Conques is also a major staging post on the spiritual path to Saint-Jacques de Compostella.

Beyond Conques is Marcillac, a delightful town with banks, supermarkets and post office. Every Sunday morning it has a wonderfully colourful market. The large towns of Aurillac and Rodez are about an hour’s drive and both offer extensive shopping, culture, restaurants and activities to suit all tastes.
