Make a holiday rental chateau or gite in Lot, France your home away from home

The department of Lot in France’s Midi-Pyrenees, is a rural department famed for its magnificent local produce and natural landscape. Offering excellent local food, stunning scenery and a range of outdoor activities, a holiday rental gite in Lot provides a great holiday retreat at any time of the year.

Things to do in Lot, France

Canoeing and kayaking holidays taking advantage of the self catering Lot chateaux and gites are best located on the banks of the Dordogne and Cele Rivers, whilst the River Lot is the base for a vast array of boat trips which allow you to discover the villages and sights of the department from an alternative point of view. Fishing is also highly popular in Lot, and the huge abundance of fine scenery makes it ideal for walking and cycling holidays.

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. Nowhere have I found a natural site as intriguing as Gouffre de Padirac; a collapsed cave which has formed an enormous crater.

The finest truffles are found here, and the Saturday market is the best place to stock the shelves in a self catering Lot holiday rental. Boat tours from Cahors are the ideal way to explore and soak in the stunning scenery of Lot.

Figeac is one of the larger towns in Lot, providing a range of shops, restaurants and services to cater for anyone staying in a self catering Lot chateau or gite. It is a historians dream, and birthplace to Jean Francois Champollion, the man who cracked the Egyptian hieroglyphics.

Meanwhile, Rocamadour is essential viewing from a Lot cottage simply due to its spectacular location and architecture. Dating back to the 10th Century and built into the shear cliff face. It is hard to describe the shear beauty of Rocamadour, and it simply needs to be discovered in person!

                                                          This place is fantastic! I came hear with my family and it was just the thing we needed. The house my brother and I stayed in was fantastic and classically old. The house had three wonderful floors all were extremely clean and well equipped with two showers! In one of the bedrooms there is this massive window with a beautiful view of the surrounding area. The house is also a really nice sitting room with a large TV useful for movie nights (with a large selection of brilliant movies). The pool gives a great view of the surrounding countryside in which the house is situated. The area also has lots of family friendly activities such as scenic bike rides. This place is superb I cannot recommend it enough!!

                                                          The Gite was compact but had everything we needed. We didn't spend too much in the Gite but did enjoy the lovely garden and fabulous pool. The owner was really nice - helpful, and lived nearby but wasn't around too much. We explored loads of places and enjoyed a cycle/canoe combination one day. Would recommend - accommodation a high standard. Very clean.

                                                          What can I say about this property, it is absolutely fantastic. The building is beautiful the grounds and scenery are stunning. If you want a complete chill and relaxing time this is the place to come. The barn has absolutely everything you could wish for and more, brilliantly equipped and very comfortable. We will definitely be back. I must thank the owners Garry and Gaynor who were always around to answer and help us with any questions we had whether about the barn or the surrounding area. Wish I was still there!
