Set on a secluded four-acre hilltop in complete privacy, Barreau is surrounded by forests, farms and orchards, with a panoramic view of the surrounding Quercy countryside. The farmhouse, built in 1700, and adjacent barn have recently been exquisitely restored to an intimate cottage atmosphere. Everything is made from the characteristic white Quercy stone, taken from the property's own quarry. Barreau is in the far northwest corner of the Tarn-et-Garonne Department. It is a rural area of farms, vineyards, orchards and forests and is home to some of France's greatest culinary treasures, such as truffles, foie gras, pâté, cèpes and game. Among the richest farmland in France, this area produces an endless variety of grains, vegetables and fruits.

The whole area is so beautiful and we enjoyed the relaxing hammocks and the pretty villages.'

We wish it could be longer!' 'We thoroughly enjoyed our week here at Barreau - the views are magnificent. We enjoyed breakfast in the garden, visiting local markets, exploring historic villages and the local countryside. The weather was superb - September is beautiful at Barreau.
