The rich medieval heritage and ancient painted caves of Grotte de Peche-Merle make Lot a dream location for historians and those with an interest in the development of south west France.

It is fully equipped with everything you could need. A perfect, peaceful and tranquil place to relax. The owners, Averil and Edmund, are great hosts and will go out of their way to make sure you enjoy your time there . You will love the peace and quiet, yet with a 15 min gentle stroll you can be in the local village and enjoy a coffee, or meal and the local Sunday market. Its a great base for exploring the local region (and the wine), and we are only sorry we can't go back again next year, and will struggle to find anywhere as good. We will certainly be going again in the future.

The owner exceeds all expectations ensuring our stay was everything we hoped for, even when the storms came he would always make sure all was ok. The house itself is well equipped both inside and out the kids loved the pool and the freedom of the location which is both safe and secure. We would highly recommend this property to anyone and need look forward to returning
