after a 50ish kilometre drive west from Figeac at the eastern end of the Lot Valley,which is argueably some of the most wonderful scenery in that area of France you arrive at Saint Cirq le Popie.
It is one of those places that has to be seen to be believed.
Clinging to the side of a cliff of some 200 or more feet it looks out over the Lot River Valley.Looking north from the top of the the cliff you can see the hotel across the river.
The hotel is set in some beautiful grounds with a heated outdoor swimming pool that was cloed while we where there as the weather wasn't good..it was awful actually!
All the staff we came into contact with were friendly and welcoming and made us comfortable.
Our room was very clean and sort of retro modern wit drapes round the bed and polished natural stone floors.
We had a separate toilet and the bath/wet room was very nice all clad in natural slate.The sink was not practical as it looked like an ice cream cone and the tap stopped you get your head down for a wash!!not a black though.
The reception area doubled as a breakfast restaurant and was very clean and tidy.Continental style breakfast was fine and eat as much as you want.
The hotel runs 2 restaurants in the village of St Cirq and runs a free shuttle if you use either one.
Over all our stay was wonderful,spoilt only by the weather
