Available from the last week in July, through August to the first week in September, Saturday to Saturday, our Barn in Murcens in the Lot is a beautiful, relaxing holiday destination. The Lot is home to stunning scenery, picturesque honey coloured stone villages, three lovely rivers, the Lot, Cele and Dordogne, first class rustic cuisine and the renowned Cahors appellation wine. This sparsely populated region offers natural, peaceful and unspoilt countryside for a delightful "escape from it all" vacation.Nature, man and time have conspired to create a wonderful landscape of dramatic limestone cliffs, mysterious forested causses and fertile valleys. The abundant flora and fauna have been cared for by its people who in turn have built agreeable places which form a delightful backdrop for today’s visitors.
The Barn is set in the heart of this spellbinding landscape. Relaxation starts as soon as you arrive. A sheep’s bell, birdsong or the occasional tractor down the lane are the only sounds. We spend most of our time enjoying the garden, clean air, lovely sun-kissed pool and woodland. It’s an easy going place for reading, listening to music, lazing about outside and spending time with family and friends. Food shopping in the markets, preparing and cooking meals and eating on the sun-kissed patio are always fun. There are scenic drives nearby or strolls down the shady lanes. For the more energetic there are many marked tracks for hiking and biking as well as canoeing on the rivers.
Our careful conversion has saved original features which characterise a barn and complimentary modern additions give a comfortable, distinctive experience for our guests. For a few hours travelling you have arrived worlds away from everyday life and there's the sun For those seeking tranquillity, clean air and relaxation, the Barn at Murcens has all that you could wish for in a holiday and to complete your dreams there are fabulous butterflies by day and glorious starlit skies at night.
