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.

We arrived on Sunday after a long journey , unsure of the French custom we didn’t realise that all shops would be shut . This didn’t cause any problem as Christophe and Regina were there with a cooler bag with essential supplies fiom their own kitchen , sharing bread, milk , and other groceries that would see us through to when the supermarkets opened. Both my husband and I realised at this point , that our stay at this beautiful homely gite would be most enjoyable . We had two small dogs with us and the enclosed garden was a great playground for them , with enough space to run and play without being able to escape. With only a very little understanding of French ( from 45 years peviously at school ) we managed to understand most things that Regine and Christophe spoke to us about. The instruction book and local area information was in French , however Regine kindly printed us the day after we arrived a concise information sheet in regard to local sites, markets etc and general hosehold rules...which by the way consisted of treat the gite as your home, and where we put our rubbish. All I can say, anyone staying at thus gite in gintrac will have one of the best holidays ever, with great hosts, and just magical surroundings. See you next year and thankyou Christophe abd Regine for a great holiday. Keith and Maggie xx

The house is very well presented, well equipped & very comfortable & the owner is very welcoming & helpful. Even in rainy or bad weather so much to see. We cycled , great roads, but walking is also good from here.
