Parking was outside the flat, free and we always found a space easily. Inside the property was quiet but there is a hydro unit outside the balcony which does generate some noise. Not really a problem for us as we were there in February so didn't use the balcony much. The studio flat itself was comfortable and clean, and the kitchenette well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful and left us with a bottle of local wine - very nice! All in all a good base for a couple wanting to explore Cahors and the region.

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.
