Full Description

In historic Cardaillac, one of France’s most lovely "Beaux Villages" of France, are two renovated properties which are for sale either individually or together. Together they would make a superb home plus income opportunity, whereas if you bought either one individually you would acquire a traditional French house in a delightful setting.

Purchased in 2000, the original village house (with blue shutters) has been improved & extended with great care. It has four double bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor and three bathrooms. There is a generous living room, with a wood burner, which opens onto a terrace which has lovely views of the mediaeval heart of the village (which is known as "le Fort"). There is also a cellar and, of course, a kitchen. The house has mains water and drainage. It also has a covered terrace and a large open roof terrace with good views.

The second house was originally an additional barn, garage / workshop and a 19th century Prior’s house. These were renovated over a 6 year period to create an architect designed converted farm house. Many of the original 200 year old stone features in the Prior's house have been retained and incorporated into the farmhouse to complement the style of the region. Renovation work included a new roof and thorough internal re-build. A large, contemporary kitchen was installed along with beautiful wooden floors, windows, stairs and beams. As with the first house there are doors to a terrace and lovely views to le Fort. This house has two en-suite bedrooms on the upper floor and a self contained one bedroom apartment at ground floor level. There is also a workshop and cellar. Outside are terraces, gardens, a "Solardome" and summer kitchen plus a bathroom. The gardens are terraced with a second Solardome, mature trees and shrubs and outbuildings.

Furniture and furnishings are available, subject to negotiation, for either house. The price quoted in the advert is for both properties. Individually, they would be priced at 140 000€ for the village house and 340 000€ for the farm house - and the owners would be happy to consider sensible offers around these price points.


Cardillac is an historic village with a good range of shops and services - for example a boulangerie, village shop , nursery, a cafe / restaurant and a medical centre. The village is renowned as one of the most beautiful in France and has a mediaeval core centred around an area known as le Fort. It is an ideal base from which to run a gite or chambres' d'hotes business. The village is within easy reach ( 8 kms ) of Figeac an historic & delightful market town on the River Cele ( a tributary of the Lot ). The nearest airport is at Rodez, which is just over an hour away.
