The cottage was everything we had hoped it would be, a beautiful cottage in a wonderful village. A perfect quiet retreat for us to base ourselves for the week, all the attractions we wished to visit were within an hours drive on mostly quiet lanes and roads. Isabelle and Lionel were on hand to meet us upon arrival and quickly welcomed us to the cottage, through the week we exchanged greetings and it was nice to know they were on hand if we had any issue, which there were none. Everything we needed was readily available at the cottage, the only slight issue was the lack of wine glasses but as we do we found alternatives which proved more than adequate. This is more a reflection of previous guest that the vendors, as people who break things should replace them!
In summary we had a perfect week and enjoyed the area very much, if we return to the area again we will certainly explore the cottage availability again. Many thanks for the use of your cottage Isabella and Lionel.
Rocamadour itself offers plenty of historical interest, as well as outdoor activities suitable for families. Good places to eat, and amazing views.
We enjoyed day trips to Pech Merle Caves, Autoire with its charming town and peaceful woodland walk to the cascade, the medieval centre of Carennac, canoeing at Copeyerie, incredible rock face town of Roque Gageac and the chateaux of Pannonie, and Chateau de Montal near St Cere. There is enough to entice us back for many years to come. A few idiosyncrasies like a blocked sink drain, are just part of the character. Definitely essential to arrive at the town in daylight, to navigate the difficult road system, find car parking, and find the house at the bottom of the hill.
