We just completed a 2 week driving tour of parts of France with some friends starting in Paris and ending in Toulouse. We stayed in several towns and cities, but we have to say The Lot and staying at Hotel Le Saint Cirq were the highlights of the trip.
To start off this hotel is located on one of the prettiest spots on earth. Our room not only overlooked a developing vineyard but also the old city built high on a hilltop. You also see the high cliffs of The Lot, beautiful greenery, and a large pen that included Le Popie the donkey, as well as several sheep. It felt like it jumped out of a storybook.
The staff from start to finish were nothing but wonderful. They went out of their to meet all of our needs with a customer first attitude. The check in was easy. The rooms are all brand new with very modern appointments. The standard room is more than adequate size, and there are larger ones available including a few apartments if you need. The pool is smallish but adequate. Good for laps or kids.
The restaurant is only open for breakfast, but is very good, reasonably priced, and has a tremendous outdoor patio with a view to die for. They do have continuing bar and coffee service all day. The hotel is associated with a couple good restaurants in the old city that they were happy to book for us and provides shuttle service.
The location is ideal for basing yourself to see other parts of The Lot. We could easily have stayed a week here. You do need a car to see sites but there are free bikes at the hotel, and we discovered a couple nice walkabouts.
So all in all we highly recommend this hotel. It's modern, beautiful, suitable for either families or a romantic getaway.
