The primary feature on the first floor is the large communal living, dining and kitchen area with cathedral ceilings revealing the original oak beams and stone work. The communal living area has a large picture window which opens via French doors onto a raised terrace with its “abri du jardin” – a 9m by 5m in area - providing relaxing outdoor living during your holiday stay. The abri is a popular addition to many properties in the area and is effectively a conservatory where the glass windows are replaced with patio screen, excluding flying insects and allowing for alfresco dining with extensive views over the surrounding countryside. In summer, the abri becomes an open-air extension to the living room and the effect is to create substantial space in which to enjoy your holiday. Two double bedrooms each with storage space and twin beds. In each of these bedrooms one of the twin beds has a separate pull-out bed and mattress.. On the ground floor ... Bedroom 1 - has a king size bed with wardrobe and drawer set and adjoining is an en-suite bathroom with a bath/shower, sink and toilet.

Reyrevignes is within the ‘Parc Naturel Regional des Causses du Quercy’, an area designated for its outstanding natural beauty. The village has a bakery producing fresh bread daily.

Nearby Figeac is just 15 minutes drive away with a range of shops and supermarkets. Figeac has a wonderful farmer’s market every Saturday centred in the market square. The town is situated on the River Cele which joins the river Lot at the beautiful and famous village of St Cirq Lapopie. The nearby river Lot is a great attraction for water-based activities and very popular in summer for canoeing, boat trips and fishing. This sparsely populated area also has some fantastic walks without encountering armies of tourists. Reyrevignes has a public tennis court available for hire for a small charge. Local activities include canoeing on the Célé, the Lot and the Tarn rivers, There are many beautiful nearby villages and market towns including the cliff-side towns of Rocamadour, St Cirq Lapopie, Cordes sur Ciel and Najac. The Lot is proud of its fine, local produce from truffles to confit of duck & goose, to dark red Cahor wines and the goat's cheese of Rocamadour. Very close to Grange de Rey are many good restaurants and all are worth a visit. The owners’ recommendations are listed in the house with contact details. Grange de Rey is conveniently reached from the new A20 motorway that runs down the heart of France from south of Paris to Toulouse.

About the neighbourhood
The house is located within the Parc Regionale Causses du Quercy which is a protected as an area of outstanding beauty by the French authorities. There are over 250 sites of historical interest and many of the villages have been designated as 'One of the most beautiful villages in France'. The Lot and Cele rivers are nearby and this region benefits from being relatively undeveloped with respect to tourism when compared to holidaying at the coast or in the Dordogne valley which is only 40kms away. Of particular interest is the very low level of atmospheric industrial pollution in this area giving rise to a night sky teeming with stars and a sight our visitors will never forget.
Getting around
Having a car or at least access to a car is essential for getting around. However, there is a regular local bus service into Figeac and buses from there to all the major places of interest. Assier railway station is only 6km away from the house and from there a train travels through some stunning countryside to the large town of Brive for sightseeing and shopping.
