This is such a gorgeous French country farmhouse, beautifully restored by the owners and with every modern facility we needed.
We have stayed at the house several times and it is has always been perfect for us and our family and also to share with other families with children and grandparents. It is very well equipped with many different areas inside and outside to relax, read or sleep!
For us, the location is fabulous, just under an hour from Toulouse airport and the setting is exquisite - calm and peaceful with far-reaching views across vineyards towards the Pyrenees. On occasions we actually saw the Pyrenees in the distance when a storm blew up; we sat and watched the electrical fireworks completely protected from the weather.
We absolutely love the huge pool - about 13 metres long, so fantastic for keen swimmers like myself, but also ideal for our small children. The pool also has an easily removable electric hard cover which made us feel more comfortable on the security font.
We practically lived in the outside area, and enjoyed many long and lazy lunches and suppers under the covered terraces. We loved that there are so many different areas to sit and eat at and you can enjoy a different view as well as much-needed shade to escape the hot midday sun. Our children made full use of the garden to play cricket, football before launching back into the pool.
If you enjoy walking, running or cycling, this is a fascinating area to explore with some challenging hills up and down to the "Bastide" towns.
We were given some really great recommendations and loved exploring the nearby towns, villages and vineyards - each area offers small and intimate wine-tastings which we thoroughly enjoyed. We'd highly recommend making a beeline for nearby Cordes for its Saturday market - amazing cheeses, fresh produce and the fantastic local patisserie for croissant and bread and then head over the road for coffee or an aperitif at the cafe opposite.
We'll definitely go back to Lacalm. Our holiday was the perfect mix of relaxing, exploring and great food and wine. It's impossible not to relax and wind-down here. Thank you to the owners of Lacalm for making this a very special place for our holiday.
