Situated 10 minutes from the medieval town of CAHORS, 50 minutes from BRIVE airport, 45 minutes from SAINT CIRQ LAPOPIE, it is here, in the heart of the region known as QUERCY that DOMAINE DE LABARTHE has been welcoming guests for almost twenty five years.At the entrance to the village of Espere, this 18th century country seat, surrounded by Walnut trees, remains a family home. Over the years it has been restored in keeping with tradition and with loving respect to its ancient stone character. Thus today it is a residence of quality in a privileged setting.There are 5 bedrooms:3 on the ground floor with a southerly exposition and looking out on the main gardens and the swimming pool. They are very comfortable and the decoration has been carefully chosen, in season a bouquet of roses will be there to welcome you.In summer, a delicious breakfast is served on the terrace overlooking hundred-year-old olive tsree. There is also a summer kitchen and a barbecue at your disposal in the garden and you can choose to relax in the shade or take a dip in the saltwater swimming pool. The region around DOMAINE DE LABARTHE is a lively centre of activities based around its rivers, - LOT - CELE, pre-historic caves - PECH MERLE - PADIRAC , villages and history.

We spent a night in the Pigeonnier for an anniversary weekend. The owner very kindly allowed us to stay for 1 night even though 2 nights is normally the minimum. A bunch of fresh roses welcomed us which was a lovely touch. Beautiful grounds - next time we'll come in the summer and enjoy the pool!

A beautiful property in a beautiful region. Old stones very well refurbished, decoration is unbelievably well done, you really feel good. All in the details, bed sheets, towels, amenities are great. The hosts are very professional, very committed and super nice. You really feel welcome. We had a chance to have diner on spot at the table d’hôtes and we meet 2 wonderful couples. Breakfast is simple and great, try the scrambled eggs with estragon... We definitely are going to be back.

Been meaning to write his review for 2 years. So here it is . We stayed here for a week with our Springer Spaniel, in summer 2016 . It’s a stylish country house, quintessentially French, with friendly owners (both speak English) and a wonderful garden. We stayed in the pigeoniarre (because of the dog). A couple of times during our stay, the owner offered a homemade supper, food was delicious, served In candlelight on the terrace, round a communal table. Two delightful evenings. One day we’ll go back and stay in the sumptuous rooms inside the house.

Laurence and Guillaume are consummate hosts providing a boutique hotel experience, delicious table d’hôtes, with excellent facilities to cater for yourself if desired. The grande chambre is recently renovated with taste in the French style, spotlessly clean with fresh flowers and water provided daily. You can enjoy the pool, a massage in the converted turret, yoga in the brand new studio, or ramble in beautiful countryside on the free bikes provided. Cahors and various other local attractions are easy and picturesque drives away including St Cirq la Popie. You will need a car. Simply a tranquil oasis, we did not want to leave, providing excellent value for money. This unique stay provides a luxury, professional small hotel experience, while making you feel as if you are staying with particularly accommodating friends. Book early! The only problem? My husband’s holiday romance with the owner’s beautifully trained dogs coming to an end. Nous vous remercions et attendez notre deuxième visite avec impatience.
