This farmhouse has an idyllic rural setting on a hillside, in rolling countryside, about an hour north-west of Toulouse and enjoying complete privacy and peace. Cahors is good wine country and the area is also noted for many fine medieval towns, of which Lauzerte is the nearest (12 km). Moissac, with its famous cloister lies not far to the south, and Montcuq, a bustling market town, is worth a visit. The dramatic Gorges du Tarn are within easy reach, as are Albi with its wonderful cathedral and the Toulouse -Lautrec museum, while within approx. 2 hours you can be at the sea or in the Pyrenees
Other Activities: Wine-tasting, sight-seeing medieval towns, markets, canoeing

About Andrew Cripwell
Our father Peter, an architect, fell in love with Gleyaire and its setting in 1989 whilst holidaying with friends. It was a ruin with trees growing through the roof, but that did not put Dad off and after many years of love, sweat, laughter, hassle and fun, Gleyaire is enjoying a second wind. It has been a source of many happy adventures for not just our family (Peter has 5 children), but many friends too.
Andrew Cripwell purchased this Farmhouse in 1990
Why Andrew Cripwell chose Fauroux
The house appeals because of it's utter privacy, and romanticism. One really feels as if they are in the elements with all the insect life and wild flowers surrounding it... not a house in sight. It is a destination in itself, with no need to venture farther afield. It feels as if many good times have been enjoyed here over the last few hundred years.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Gleyaire has always been a happy place, and somewhere to go for peace and refuge. Believe it or not, many people have met and fallen in love here, and I can see why.
