Rental Home
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). The cottage sleeps 4 in 2 double bedrooms. We have a separate character house nearby which sleeps 6 people in 3 double bedrooms (ID 22948). The properties are totally independant of each other and each has its own private outdoor space. The only shared space is the pool area. 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 landscapes in every direction. In other words, something to please everyone!
