Piquecos is a small picturesque, hilltop village in Tarn-et-Garonne, one of the southern foothills of the Massif Central. The lovely surroundings of meadows, fields and vineyards are particularly attractive and invite you to discover the beautiful nature of the area. This also applies to the many interesting towns such Montpezat-de-Quercy, Caylus, both medieval beauties. Or Moissac (18 km) with St. Peter's Abbey Church, the water bridge over the river and fruit market. The old pink town of Montauban (10 km) with various museums including the Musee Ingres, a monumental square with arcades and the Notre Dame Cathedral. The beautiful Aveyron gorges between pretty Bruniquel and cute St. Antonin-Noble-Val are half an hour by car. And make sure to drive to Cordes-sur-Ciel, an unforgettably beautiful town. At Molières (16 km) is a nice lake where you can picnic, go sailing and surfing. In Lafrançaise (5 km) is a swimming pool and a recreation lake with giant slide. Here you can also hire paddle boats, go canoeing and play tennis. Baker is at cycling distance (2 km). Grocery and restaurant in Loubejac (4 km), supermarket, bike rental and much more in Montauban. Golf Course (9 holes) at 5 km.

Restaurants, food & wine

Tarn-et-Garonne is an agricultural region, with a wonderful cuisine. A lot of fruit is grown here, with as showpiece the Chasselas, the golden grapes of Moissac. It is also the region of the "fat" goose or duck liver, "confit" and duck fillet. And how about a slice of truffle or a plate of porcini mushrooms and chestnuts, flavored with garlic? A good glass of wine, Côtes du Frontonnais, Côtes-du-Brulhois, Quercy or Lavilledieu, a regional wine. The art of good food is still highly regarded, as well as on the table as on the farm: there are five (soon to be six) "Circuits des Saveurs" ( "Feast Routes"). A combination of gastronomy and heritage that brings food lovers to producers and restaurateurs in the department. The markets sell ducks, geese, porcini mushrooms, truffles, garlic and organic products. And in summer there are also the famous night markets in Castelsarrasin, Caussade, Montauban and Valence d'Agen, where people still speak and sing Occitan with its rolling 'r'. Abbey Belleperche has the Centre des Arts du Gout et de la Table, and here you can see old table ware, discover culinary traditions and you can taste traditional cuisine in a musical atmosphere every summer.

We hadden dit huis voor 2 weken geboekt.
Mooi huis,alles wat je nodig hebt is aanwezig,
Het huis is schoon.
Het zwembad is heerlijk!
We hadden niet zulk mooi weer,maar af en to toch kunnen zwemmen.
Het grote voordeel van dit huis is dat je veel zon hebt op het terras.
Een aanrader!
