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.

Places to holiday in Lot, France

For food connoisseurs, Cahors is an essential place to visit from any holiday cottage in Lot. 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!

Weather in Lot, France

Summer temperatures average at a very comfortable 267deg;C in June and July, which is ideal for messing around on the rivers or walking in the countryside. Winters are remarkably warm, averaging 9°C throughout the coldest months.

Flights to Lot, France

The closest airport to a holiday rental in Lot, Toulouse (TLS), receives many flights from the UK, from Gatwick (LGW), Birmingham (BHX) and the East Midlands. Cheap flights to Lot have made holidays here very popular, and no longer just a stop on the way through to the beaches of Spain.

Beautiful well-appointed home in a gorgeous setting

5 of 5
We were welcomed to our holiday home by Edmund and Averil who answered our questions with ease. Every time we asked for help (walks, Vegan restaurants, nearest supermarkets etc) they were able to answer very quickly and knowledgeably. The pool is a nice size for cooling off in and the many places for dining, on the shady veranda or the other options in the wooded garden. The kitchen is fully equipped including SHARP knives (a first in a rental property for us!). The kitchen facilities were first class and important to us and as we spent a lot of time eating there. The garden is beautiful with some lovely planting and plentiful visitors in the form of bees and lovely hummingbird hawk-moths. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well appointed and comfortable. We were pleased with the large Smart TV, FreeSat and DVD player, so we were able to watch BBC coverage of Wimbledon and Netflix for films. There is a good selection of DVDs too! All in all we had a wonderful holiday and this was assisted greatly by the friendly help from Edmund and Averil. All 6 of us had a holiday to remember. Thank you!

Les Arcades was a little quirky but is also a little gem in an excellent position.

5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay and Mme Deladerriere gave us some helpful tips on arrival re places and restaurants to visit. The apartment is rather unusual as it is long and thin but it has all mod cons and is great value for money. If you want to watch TV there is one but due to shape of the room viewing from the sofa may pose a problem. The two best features of the apartment are its location in the heart of the beautiful historic city of Cahors and the quiet calm provided by Les Arcades courtyard garden. From this base one may explore the city which has much to offer. The old city is superb with many historic buildings and wonderful restaurants. It also provides a base for striking out and visiting the many attractive towns and villages not to mention wonderful vineyards in the surrounding region. The wines of this region are superb as is the cuisine. I have no problems recommending Les Arcades as an excellent base for exploring both the city and surrounding area.
