2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
Nestling amongst two acres of woodland and open countryside and ideally situated between the Lot Valley and Aveyron Gorges, Les Fontaines is the perfect place to relax and unwind. Guests have use of the superb 12 x 6m swimming pool (which is bordered by mature oak and ash trees which offer welcome dappled shade during the hotter summer months). We can accommodate parties of up to 10 people as we also have a separate cottage which sleeps 4.

Within a very short distance you will discover many of France's most beautiful medieval villages (Najac, Belcastel, St. Cirq Lapopie and Cordes to name just a few). Kayaking/Canoeing/Rafting and river cruises down the Lot Valley are just a few of the many outdoor activities readily available. There's an abundance of wildlife/birdlife on the doorstep and breathtaking scenery and dramatic l...

Lovely pool which is shared access with the accommodation in the main house - but that was unoccupied during our stay. A perfectly peaceful, relaxing place with just... more

We stayed in the cottage of the main house. Les Fontaines. This is the not in the main house but is a separate building with 2 bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen and living area. On our arrival, our hosts had very kindly provided the essentials as far as bread, jam, croissants, tea, cofffee, butter etc. This was a lovely touch. The cottage... more

The photos do not do Les Fontaines justice. This is a beautiful place. The pretty cottage was well equipped, clean and comfortable. We were happy to eat meals in the lovely courtyard, and spend afternoons/evenings by the fabulous pool. Darts and pool table were also a favourite. The hillside villages and surrounding towns are attractive. We particularly enjoyed visiting St... more
