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.

Peaceful and well appointed

5 of 5
Lovely gîte in the middle of the countryside, with a nice shared pool and all you need. Everything was as described and we had an enjoyable week. There's a small shop in Sauzet that stocks a useful range of stuff including some meat, pate, cheese, wine, groceries, etc, very close (either 30 mins walk or a short drive), and a boulangerie. Very useful!

Lovely Gite with friendly British owners

5 of 5
Outstanding decor in all rooms. Kitchen diner is large and spacious and sitting room is brightly lit by the large curved window in the front. Lovely wooden beams and roof lining gives high ceilings in the two delightful bedrooms, especially in the stunning main bedroom. We have stayed in France many times but the owners (and neighbours) were the best ever. A brilliant two weeks in a lovely part of the world.
