We recently spent a fantastic week in Les Arcades. it was perfectly located just a short walk from the Boulevard where you can enjoy the restaurants and bars. Supermarkets are also close by. Mme Deladerriere gave us some really useful tips on arrival re restaurants and places to visit. The apartment was very clean and suited my husband and I perfectly. Les Arcades is in the heart of this most beautiful city and has a courtyard garden where you can relax after a busy day exploring. This is the perfect place to stay and discover the beauty of Cahors and explore the surrounding area. Thank you Yvonne for making our holiday so memorable.
The house is a holiday rarity with two double and two twin bedrooms, each with its own shower and toilet. There are two TVs if needed and a well equipped kitchen - two fridges and a freezer, microwave, dishwasher, double sink, plenty of pots and pans as well as consumables.
The English owner is very communicative and the English couple (Angela and Ron) who look after the house are friendly and helpful. The toaster, a rarity in French houses, died on us but a quick text to Angela and it was replaced in a couple of days.
Another English person looks after the large swimming pool.
We wanted a quiet location and the house certainly met the spec. Sitting on the terrace watching the southern 'star rise' was great.
Being this rural means a drive to the bakery - Parisot or Caylus - but they aren't far and I enjoyed the trip.
I have no hesitation in saying that of all the French holiday homes we have had over the last thirty years this is one of the best.
My only word of caution is that the property is multi-level, with the kitchen/diner on 1st floor so there is a bit of stair climbing to take into account.
