    Séjour très agréable dans une belle propriété, au calme. Petits et grands ont bien profité de la grande piscine ainsi que des jeux de plein air mis à disposition. Je précise que le second gîte n'était pas occupé pendant notre séjour.
    La terrasse est bien ombragée toute la journée et la maison reste fraîche ce qui était hautement appréciable avec la canicule. Il n'y a pas de télévision (ce qui était très bien !) et le Wifi ne peut être capté dans toutes les pièces.
    Les propriétaires sont charmants et très disponibles.

    Très bon séjour. La piscine est très grande et très agréable. Nos hôtes très sympathiques et très discrets. Le domaine spacieux avec des jeux pour les enfants. La maison, simple mais très bien équipée, et très propre, elle ne manque de rien. La terrasse pour manger dehors très agréable et quasiment toute la journée à l'ombre. Beaucoup de belles choses à voir dans la région. Nous cherchions un endroit calme pour les vacances, nous avons été servi.

Restaurants, food & wine

The Lot/Quercy region is well known for its food and wine. Lamb, duck, goose, truffle, walnut, prunes, foie gras and the dark red wines of Cahors are the signature of the area. There are several good restaurants within a short distance. The property is only 2 km from Montgesty where one finds a boulangerie and a bar/café, and 7 km from Catus and Cazals where there are several food stores, a market, a doctor, a pharmacy, and a bank. There are also supermarkets in Prayssac (17 km) and Cahors (23 km). Each gîte has a map with lists of suggestions of places to see and things to do.


There are numerous landmarks to remind the traveller of the rich historical legacy of the region: prehistoric caves, fortified farms, châteaux, and countless medieval towns and villages. Within a radius of 50 km one can visit places like Cahors, Saint Cirq-Lapopie, Rocamadour and Sarlat-la-Canéda. Cahors, capital of the Lot département, lies within a great loop of the river Lot. In medieval times it was an almost impregnable fortress. One fortified bridge remains, the Pont Valentré. Every year, during the summertime, its streets resonate with the sounds of the jazz and blues festival. There are also two open markets in the old quarter.

Saint Cirq-Lapopie, also an ancient fortress, is a very attractive village, built into the steep south bank of the river Lot. Its narrow streets, alleys and old buildings have been carefully restored by painters and wood carvers. Rocamadour has been a pilgrimage destination since the twelfth century. Built on an impressive cliff, the houses cling to the vertical rock surface like limpets. The region has seen human activity since the dawn of time and the Lot features a number of interesting caves such as Lascaux and the Grotte of Pech-Merle. Those sites combine prehistoric art with many impressive natural features.
At the Gouffre de Padirac, visitors can take a boat trip on the still, translucent waters of the subterranean river, ending at a stalactite which hangs from the roof 78 m above to just above the surface of the water. The 'Hundred Years War' in the 14th century gave the region many of its characteristic features such as the fortified villages known as Bastides. The region also abounds with châteaux: Bonaguil, the last feudal fortress built in France, finished in 1520, is well worth the visit. On summer evenings there are musical performances by international artists.
