Very nice cottage on the heights of Cahors with heated infinity pool.

Valerie, and their two children Pascal and Pierre Alban, are pleased to welcome you in their house on the heights of Cahors with infinity pool shared with our family. (Heated pool) Designed by the hostess herself architect, to ensure total harmony with nature, our house 5/6 places will meet all your requirements. It is air conditioned and fully equipped with a high level of comfort. The peace and tranquility of this wood frame house, dressed in wood and stone in the middle of the plateau green oaks, will enchant you with its dominant cicadas and aplomb. Without further ado, we invite you to give you a preview by going to "visite guidée" ... .

Cahors, lies in a loop of the river and in medieval times was a prosperous trading town and still has a warren of ancient streets and squares. Pont Valentré, the old bridge across the river Lot, with its three slim towers and great Gothic arches, is still used daily. Today the town is still busy and colourful with good shops, many cafes and restaurants and a large market on Saturday mornings. Cahors has been producing red wine for two thousand years and the vines around us go into making it.

Activities

Both the Dordogne to the north and the lovely Quercy countryside south of us are within reasonable driving distance. You can come across markets and fairs and sometimes country antique markets in the villages and there are lots of restaurants to try, along with local wines. There are boat hire bases in Cahors for a day on the river Lot and you can also hire bicycles there.

Saint Cirq Lapopie lies on the left bank of the river Lot, its honey coloured, red roofed houses clambering up the steep hill that surrounds it, to the great Gothic church that sits on top. Further along the river is Puy l'Evêque, its streets of old houses and the square towers of the château reflected in the slow moving water.

There are incredible underground caves at Padirac, where you can take a boat trip along the underground stream deep inside. Rocamadour is a well preserved medieval town balanced precariously on the side of a cliff and worth a visit.
