L’Ancien Pres­bytère de Tro­n­iac nes­tles on the slope of a val­ley on the west­ern bor­der of the wine-​plateau of Cahors. Tro­n­iac is located on the bor­der of the depart­ments of the Lot, Lot-​et-​Garonne and Tarn-​et-​Garonne and also at the bor­der of the regions Aquitaine and Midi-​Pyrenées.

Today the small ham­let of only two farms is part of the vil­lage of Saux, but once it was an inde­pen­dent parish. Tro­n­iac was first men­tioned in a doc­u­ment from 1279 when the abbot of the Bene­dic­tine abbey of Moissac granted the inhab­i­tants cer­tain rights.

The present farm­house was built in the 19th cen­tury on ear­lier foun­da­tions with mate­r­ial from the orig­i­nal ruins. Traces of some of these medieval remains can still be seen: a tran­som with a cru­ci­fix above the kitchen door, the base of a Romanesque chapel and the ruin of an adja­cent build­ing, prob­a­bly the vic­arage or ‘pres­bytère’, hence the name of the domain: ‘L’Ancien Pres­bytère de Troniac’.

Nowa­days, two Flem­ish Bel­gians live on the farm. One of the barns is con­verted into a painter’s stu­dio, there’s an inde­pen­dent guest-​room in the house and the sta­ble is being ren­o­vated into a small, self-​catering cottage.

The heated pool (5×10 metres) is sit­u­ated close to both the guest-​room and cot­tage and has a large southwest-​facing ter­race. The pool is heated and fil­tered by a salt-​based sys­tem, so there are no traces of chlorine.

The domain of almost four hectares of gar­den, for­est, field and meadow is a tran­quil oasis that offers numer­ous quiet cor­ners to enjoy peace and nature. No large-​scale tourism here but authen­tic­ity, space, lux­ury and cosy atmos­phere abound.

Interior

Our cot­tage is sit­u­ated in a ren­o­vated free­stand­ing barn at a small dis­tance from the main house. It offers views over the val­ley and pool. Because of its posi­tion and the south-​facing pri­vate ter­race you can enjoy max­i­mum privacy.

The cot­tage is self-​catering and has a kitchen with fridge, dish­washer, 4-​burner gas cooker, microwave, cof­fee machine, etc. …

In the liv­ing room you have satel­lite tele­vi­sion, DVD player, and wire­less inter­net.

In the bed­room you will enjoy a box spring (200÷180 cm.) and a bath­room with rain shower and toilet.

The heated pool and sun ter­race are nearby and can be used freely.

Surroundings

The Quercy Blanc area is sit­u­ated in the south-​western Lot and is often called the ‘Tus­cany of France’ thanks to its soft cli­mate and hills cov­ered with vine­yards, cypresses and lime­stone. There are oppor­tu­ni­ties for walk­ing and cycling to one’s heart’s con­tent. This is a region where you’ll still find the authen­tic charm and peace of the French countryside.

The view is only inter­rupted by for­ti­fied lime­stone vil­lages (bastides) that lie scat­tered through the land­scape. Tournon d’Agenais, Montcuq, Mont­pezat, Mont­flan­quin and Lauzerte are nearby and are cer­tainly worth a visit. Most of these vil­lages offer a charm­ing weekly mar­ket. There are also reg­u­lar antique and flea mar­kets as well.

In addi­tion, there are excur­sions to the pic­turesque val­ley of the Lot where most of the famous Cahors vine­yards are sit­u­ated. Saux has six vine­yards of which Domaine d’Homs is our neigh­bour. Tro­n­iac offers a direct view over these vineyards.

The his­tor­i­cal cities of Vil­leneuve sur Lot, Cahors, Mon­tauban, Moissac en Agen are 30 to 40 km. away. Also Toulouse is within easy reach by motor­way (+/​-​1h15) for a day trip. The cas­tles and tourist high­lights of the Dor­dogne are an hour to the north and those of the east­ern Lot are less than an hour’s journey.

There are restau­rants galore, from sim­ple snacks and ‘routiers’ to Miche­lin star gourmet restaurants.
