Another interesting village to visit is Rocamadour, which is built on a cliff edge. Apart from these fascinating villages, there are limestone caves with ancient paintings, vineyards, markets, and of course restaurants. The food at these restaurants really does need to be tasted to be believed – it’s not often that you get to try wild boar! Remember to sample the local wines as well.

Travel to Montsalvy, France

Whilst the remoteness of Montsalvy adds to its charm, it does also add on a couple of hours in travel time to actually get there! Perhaps the nearest airport is at Bordeaux (BOD), where flights from British Airways arrive from London Gatwick (LGW). Toulouse and even Marseilles also have airports which could be used. Whichever one you choose, you will certainly benefit from having a hire care in order to get from the airport to your self catering accommodation in Montsalvy, and also to explore the region in general. If you decide instead to drive, keep in mind that the ferry ports are at least an 8 hours’ drive away.

Friendly owners, very helpful. Lovely countryside. Gite is tastefully furnished, surprisingly spacious, swimming pool much enjoyed. Garden has stunning views to eat your meals in. We explored the surrounding area, picturesque villages, and Conques was exceptionally interesting and atmospheric. We hope to come again.

Charming House in Beautiful location with lovely friendly and helpful owners

5 of 5
The property is really lovely and well equipped. The hosts, the Nayrolles family, are very friendly and helpful without intruding into your privacy. My wife is in a wheelchair, and the morning after we arrived Raymond had installed a ramp so that the wheelchair could be pushed easily up the 2 steps (Thank you Raymond!). The location is very rural but is within 3 Kms of Estaing and the whole area is so beautiful. Its fantastic cycling country and other activities include hiking, fishing and canoeing....or enjoying some of the wonderful local wines! We loved our stay and will be back. Thank you to Raymond and your family for making us feel so welcome
