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.

Exceptional property and exceptional hosts

5 of 5
We had an excellent 10 days holiday at the house and the owners Steve and Michele were so friendly and helpful that leaving at the end of the stay was sad. The property is really well decorated and comfortably furnished throughout and the views are something special. Catelnau Montratier is a short drive away and is a beautiful small town with all the amenities required for a stay. The surrounding countryside is exceptional with many small villages and places to visit. We have no problem recommending this house to anyone and we are sure we will be returning for another stay in the future.

Such a relaxing place- excellent accomodation

5 of 5
We could not have wished for more from La Grange du Noyer. Beautifully appointed, every home comfort and a welcome basket with wine, bread, milk,coffee, tea and more on arrival. The weather was super( could not believecwe had no need for coats in February!) We went out everyday- local 9km walks and trips to St Cere, Autoire and Bretenoux. We even went skiing to Le Lioran by train for a day. Imelda and John made the booking experience so easy and the barn is kept beautifully clean by the local gîte managers. Would really recommend booking this property!

Highly recommended

5 of 5
1. Beautiful location with great views 2. Great to be close to the village (small and sleepy but with good market, 2 bakeries, butcher/traiteur, restaurant, bars...) 3. House is very comfortable and just about the best equipped we have ever stayed in 4. Hosts are terrific and gave us some excellent recommendations, perfectly tailored to our interests 5. Close to so many stunning places to visit (Sarlat, Roque-Gageac, Domme) that as week just won't be long enough 6. Lots of good walks close by - also well signed cycle routes and quiet, safe roads 7. But also perfect for doing nothing, sitting by the pool in the sunshine with a pastis listening to birdsong or curling up in front of the woodburner with a book 8. For foodlovers, the place is paradise with inspiring markets to buy local, seasonal food; a well equipped kitchen to prepare it and a choice of indoor and outdoor dining space to enjoy leisurely meals 9. For a break from cooking there are lots of good restaurants - not least the Auberge in the village - four courses for under 13 euros (including soup which came in a tureen not just a bowl, similarly the cheese course was presented in whole pieces to cut off as much as liked and wine included) 10. At the end of the day, beds of deep comfort - we slept for hours in peace
