Maison D'Amis ( The friend's house) is a comfortable place to stay to discover the Lot and the surrounding area. Close to Prayssac, Puy l,Évêque and Cahors and to all that you need.
Maison D’Amis is situated just 10 minutes walk on the flat from the centre of the village of Prayssac in the Lot. The property has been converted from a tobacco drying barn in to comfortable accommodation for two people and is located within the grounds of our house, giving plenty of privacy and plenty of open space, in fact 6000 square meters of it!
Staying close to the village means the car can take a rest too and if you enjoy good food, as we do, then you are in for a treat. There is all that you need to hand locally, including a very good and very popular weekly market with a fantastic choice of fresh food, most of it grown locally and there are also organic growers there each week too. The shops include three boulangeries, all selling different breads, two good size grocery stores, high quality butchers and five coffee shop/bars.
If you feel like going out to eat then you have a large choice of places to try, whether you stay in the village or head a little further afield. We are happy to give you as much or as little information as you need and, having lived and rented out here here for over 15 years, we have built up quite a bit of knowledge that we love to share.
The property is ideal for those passing through and looking for a base from which to explore and we are happy to rent on a bed and breakfast basis (min four nights) or a little longer. If you enjoy contact with local people then you are in the right place and if you love your wine, being in the Cahors region there is plenty of choice, in fact it can start at our neighbour’s house where you will receive a warm welcome.
The property consists of large lounge/diner and kitchen on the ground floor, leading to a covered terrace with BBQ and lovely views up over the hills behind the village and, weather permitting, a wonderful sunset each evening. Upstairs there is a shower room with basin, toilet and shower cubicle, and double bedroom plus a mezzanine area for storage.
It has been renovated to make it easy to live in: a wide staircase with large treads and wide doors leading in and out of the property.The kitchen has a gas/electric hob, fan assisted oven, microwave, plenty of cupboard space and fridge with freezer compartment.In the lounge/dining area there is the dining table, plenty of sitting space and TV with satellite reception. We can also connect you to our wifi network should you wish to keep up to date.
Having the shops and markets so close enables you to take advantage of wonderful local produce, ideal for an evening at home if going out is not on the menu!
There really is so much to see! The property is well situated for a day out in the Dordogne, with the town of Sarlat just an hour away or a visit to Agen in the Lot-et-Garonne – Toulouse is just over an hour and a half away too, and not forgetting all the beautiful villages close by to be visited.
Activities – where do we start? They include tennis, horse riding, rock climbing and marked cycling and walking routes. There are also the lakes and river beaches, just a short drive away, to relax by. If you are planning a visit, let us know your interests and will be happy to offer some suggestions.

Outras coisas a ter em conta
If heating is required we do make a charge (via meter readings and charged at cost), paid locally. We are able to give you an idea of that cost before booking (based on previous years) if required).
A washing machine is available on site but located in a different part of the property. (Small service charge applies).
What can we say other than please respect our neighbours and our house.
The house is non smoking inside but you can smoke outside on the terrace while admiring the view across the hills and the sunset.
We cannot accept more than two people as there's only one bed.
We love France and the open spaces. We love good food - passionate about pizza and the local food and of course, wine. Bike rides and walking, the wonderful food markets and so much more and our motto: Life's short, drink the good wine first!!
