Make a Holiday Rental Apartment in Cahors, France, Your Home Away From Home

The French town of Cahors is the capital of the Lot department, which lies to the south-west of the country. The town enjoys a scenic setting, surrounded in three directions by water, due to its location on a sharp bend in the course of the Lot River. The picturesque surroundings, along with the town’s wealth of historical attractions and landmarks, make it a popular holiday destination amongst local and international tourists alike. To cater for its steady influx of visitors, there is a choice of accommodation suited to self catering holiday rental in and around the town. Holidays in Cahors can be enjoyed in a spacious apartment or townhouse, or in a more traditional and rustic French cottage, or gite.

Things to Do on Holiday in Cahors, France

Highly recommended

5 of 5
1. Beautiful location with great views 2. Great to be close to the village (small and sleepy but with good market, 2 bakeries, butcher/traiteur, restaurant, bars...) 3. House is very comfortable and just about the best equipped we have ever stayed in 4. Hosts are terrific and gave us some excellent recommendations, perfectly tailored to our interests 5. Close to so many stunning places to visit (Sarlat, Roque-Gageac, Domme) that as week just won't be long enough 6. Lots of good walks close by - also well signed cycle routes and quiet, safe roads 7. But also perfect for doing nothing, sitting by the pool in the sunshine with a pastis listening to birdsong or curling up in front of the woodburner with a book 8. For foodlovers, the place is paradise with inspiring markets to buy local, seasonal food; a well equipped kitchen to prepare it and a choice of indoor and outdoor dining space to enjoy leisurely meals 9. For a break from cooking there are lots of good restaurants - not least the Auberge in the village - four courses for under 13 euros (including soup which came in a tureen not just a bowl, similarly the cheese course was presented in whole pieces to cut off as much as liked and wine included) 10. At the end of the day, beds of deep comfort - we slept for hours in peace

Lovely holiday house for a French experience

4 of 5
The gite was located on an expansive property featuring a refreshing pool with a view. It's close to a traditional French town, Cahors where you can try the local produce such as foie gras. I really enjoyed shopping at the market to take it back to the gite to cook. Great for foodies. Virginia was very friendly and helpful with information about the local area.

Charming renovation of a lovely property

5 of 5
A wonderful holiday in a gorgeous property . The property is close to a lovely village (but far enough away to be very peaceful) with all of the amenities and a weekly market. Great size pool that the kids really loved. The renovation of this property is excellent, retaining many of the properties original features with the addition of all the modern touches required. The property was immaculate on arrival, the owner Valerie was exceptionally helpful and only 2 km away if ever needed. We will definitely re-visit in the future.
