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!

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

Miles of beautiful scenery every which way. You definitely need a car, or a sturdy bike!! Villages every few kilometres, just head out of the village and it's not far to anywhere. Experience a natural rural South France. Facilities are modern and kitchens well equipped with everything you need for at least a week. A good washing machine is a plus when you're on the road for some weeks. And to cook good food is a pleasant change.

It is quiet (silent in fact), private and so wonderfully French. The size of the place was not a problem at all, in fact it is bigger inside than it looks from outside!. Upstairs the bedroom was generous and the bathroom enormous and both had lovely old-fashioned touches. Plenty of room downstairs to cook and relax too, with the owner leaving lots of information about places to visit etc. We loved Gourdon and it proved to be a good centre for visits around the Dordogne. We enjoyed the town's restaurants and bars too, as well as the historical buildings and lovely narrow streets. Parking for the Gite looked like it might be an issue as there was a small public car park, but not once did we fail to get a space whatever time we returned from a day out. Would recommend the Gite; comfortable, very well equipped, thoughtful touches (not least the generous Welcome Pack) and a very friendly owner and family. We would love to go back and hope we will at some point.
