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.

The owner Virginia is very helpful and friendly with lots of local information, we visited Cahors, Saint Cirque Lapopie, and Rocamadour, we visited these in the mornings when it was cooler and spent afternoons and evenings relaxing in the grounds and cooling off in the large pool and watching the sunset. Thank you Virginia we will return. Trevor Diane & Summer

It was lovely to be greeted by Lise on our arrival. The view from the back terrace is amazing looking down the valley and beyond. Many a glass of Rose was enjoyed from there. We loved the décor and ambience of the house it was most charming. How nice to look out the bedroom window and see the village streetscape and the local life of the people of the village. It was nice to be able to walk to the Boulangerie every morning for our croissants. The village has two restaurants just a short walk away. It was also nice to experience the markets in the town square. Many beautiful Medieval towns are within easy driving distance of Castelnau Montratier. We loved our stay here and can highly recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy a memorable French Village experience. Thank you Lise for being such a wonderful hostess, nothing was too much trouble to you. Faye and Tony Australia
