While the bedrooms are a little small, the living areas are huge – particularly the lounge/TV room and the outside deck. The recently renovate kitchen has high quality fittings and equipment – including dishwasher and clothes washing machine. The kitchen cupboards are stocked with basic food items such as salt/pepper/cooking oil/flour/sugar/etc. The furniture is good quality and comfortable – as were the beds. The apartment is very well stocked with crockery, glasses and cooking equipment. There is a gas BBQ provided on the deck, along with outdoor furniture and shade awnings and umbrellas. The air conditioning was quiet and efficient. The TV has a fair range of channels - but no English. The internet service was very good – reliable and good speed. A bonus was the private lock-up garage under the apartment as parking in the area can be difficult. The location is another of the apartment’s key features. The internet photos depicting a wonderful view of the Pont are absolutely accurate. The Pont and all its surrounding parkland and walking paths are within 2 minutes walk. The walk to the old town centre is about 10 minutes. There are also river views to the South. Our apartment had the minor misfortune of being directly in line with the small hydro plant on the river bank in front. It blocked out part of the river view directly in front - it was a slight annoyance rather than a big issue. The owner’s next door apartment does not have this obstruction. The hydro plant does make some whining noise, but it is minimal when on the deck and absolutely silent inside the apartment. Cahors is a lovely town in itself, but it is also well located for day trips to the many nearby attractions. The owners are lovely people. They were waiting for us at the apartment at the agreed time and gave us a complete run-down on how to use everything. No trouble with payment or refund of security deposit. If there is a negative to this apartment it would be the west facing aspect of the deck. Sitting on the deck in the late afternoon to admire the great views is not possible at some times because of the angle of the sun. Only a small issue – we enjoyed many breakfasts and lunches on the deck during the shaded hours. We can thoroughly recommend this apartment.

On arrival everything was pristine and supplies of household items are plentiful. We have had a fantastic family holiday and the area is an ideal mixture of adventure, culture, relaxation and hot weather. The weather was so hot it limited some of our activities however it meant we used the pool and bbq frequently. We would recommend canoeing down the Dordogne, visiting water parks as well as high ropes and zip wires at Rocamadour. We enjoyed River and lake swimming nearby and eating out at lovely restaurants as well as trying the evening markets. The website www.tourisme-lot.com-en is helpful for events and local activities. A truly memorable holiday in a beautiful part of France.

                                                                                                  4 of 5

There is not much to do once you've visited the castle but that's not why should go to Chateau de Vilon. Just enjoy the tranquility of this little hilltop village. Bikers should know that there are some great climbs around, bring at least a 39-27.
