Cuzac is a beautiful 18th century Quercy farmhouse which has been lovingly restored and yet retains many of its original features. The house offers an attractive blend of antique and modern furniture, with every home comfort to make the perfect holiday retreat. The pretty south-facing stone house sits surrounded by the garden, with wildflower meadow, and facing the superb 10 x 5m pool. The original 'bolet' provides the perfect spot for alfresco dining all through the day, with an attractive pergola-clad terrace offering shade for the barbecue. The Lot remains an unspoilt area of La France Profonde, with a rich cultural heritage, beautiful countryside, great food and wines, with colourful local markets offering delicious regional produce. For the more active and adventurous-minded, hiking or cycling through the unspoilt villages, or canoeing down the rivers are excellent activities, but equally satisfying can be just relaxing in this beautiful, peaceful part of France.

The Lot is one of the most unspoilt departments in South West France. It is a relatively little known region, rich in history and tradition, which is reflected in the distinctive architecture and beautiful stone buildings. There are many of 'les plus beaux villages de France' in the locality - St Cirque-Lapopie being one of them; and many beautiful examples of the 'bastide' towns remain. Cuzac is on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela, and numerous walking trails exist for exploration on foot or on bikes. The beautiful rivers of the Lot, Dordogne and Célé meander through the Lot countryside and provide excellent canoeing, passing through beautiful villages where the local produce can be sampled. The area is particularly renowned for its foie gras, duck and truffles, with the local 'black' wine of Cahors. World-famous prehistoric sites of Lascaux, Les Eyzies and Peche-Merle are all within striking distance and well worth a visit.
For children there are themed parks - please refer to the brochures and to the information on our website (see below).
