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.

Wonderful place

5 of 5
Had a marvellous week of peace and quiet, the house is in a great place, high up on a ridge, superb sense of space and it gives you an idea of the huge scale of the Causses. 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.

Wonderful stay

5 of 5
This is a very well equipped gite is a great situation. Meals on the south facing patio were a wonderful experience with frequent visits from a woodpecker. It is a great base for walking, with numerous well marked routes in easy distance and one right from the door. There are a number of good and well priced restaurants quite close by. We had a great stay and plan to return.
