Cahors is the closest large town, and offers every amenity guests require. The town is famous for its locally produced Malbec wine. The villages of Catus, Fumel and Cazals are all close by, each offering its own unique shopping, attractions, and friendly locals.
In the village there is a large open air swimming pool (open July and August) which is great on hot summer days. Local lakes and river beaches also offer good places to swim. Several places offer bicycle rentals.
The town of Sarlat, with its mix of Roman and gothic architecture, is just an hour away. Enjoy Sarlat's popular Place de la Liberté, a pedestrian square housing many shops and restaurants. The storied and scenic Toulouse is just over an hour and a half away as well, with its chateau, cathedrals, shops and every type of museum.
The town of Cahors is the capital of the Lot region, built on an isthmus with the river Lot flowing right around. It’s well worth a visit, even if only to see its wonderful bridge, the Pont Valentré. There are many shops and cafés here, as well as museums and art galleries and a remarkable collection of medieval houses belonging to the religious orders. There are many festivals, both indoor and outdoor, and the bustling market visits twice a week.
Clinging to the cliffs of the Alzou canyon, the spectacular medieval village of Rocamadour offers many interesting things to see and do. Once an important Christian site, Rocamadour is still a waystation for people travelling the medieval pilgrimage route of Santiago de Compostela.
A week is not long enough, this Gite exceeded all our expectations. Rob and Kim have been wonderful, their local knowledge has been most useful. Next time we will see and do more.......see you in 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The gite was lovely, refurbished and nicely decorated. It had everything we needed for our stay.It was impossible not to feel relaxed in such a beautiful and peaceful setting.
