La Chapelle is an extremely picturesque cottage with comfortable accommodation for up to 4 guests. It is built into the side of a hill at one end of the secluded hamlet of Crestes, just behind the tiny Chapel that lends the house its name. The cottage is over 200 years old, built of stone with the traditional lauze roof tiles of the region. It has been renovated sympathetically whilst retaining many original features.
There is a private pool and terrace overlooking the Lot Valley and miles of walks in the beautiful surrounding countryside.

The lower entrance has a staircase up to an open-plan living area with comfortable sofa and chairs, wood burning stove (logs provided) and UK TV, DVD player, a dining table and chairs, and a fitted kitchen. A French window leads onto the balcony where there is a table and chairs for outside dining wh...

I immediately fell in love with this property - the position high in the mountains - the picturesque cottage - just like something straight out of a fairytale. We were incredibly lucky with the weather being May - it was really hot so we ate all our meals on the balcony or by the very private pool. The area was utterly stunning with the most picturesque villages imaginable. I adored the markets, the fabulous flea market, the pavement cafes..At the end of each day we were able to escape back to our little retreat. It felt like playing houses as a little girl - yes, we had to do the washing up - but everything we needed was provided. This is a 3 storey cottage, beautifully decorated and snuggling up on the sofa watching English TV with the delicious smells of cooking wafting around us, was really memorable. As another review says, the bathroom and toilet were on the ground floor, and the bedrooms on the third, so there are a few stairs - but this adds to the quirky charm. The second...

Forget Paris and Provence - this is the real France! Unspoilt, uncrowded, un-touristy (we barely heard an English voice in 2 weeks - bliss!!) and with breath taking views around every corner.
This little cottage is set back from the tiny chapel (the bells chime every hour from 7am to 7pm - no need for an alarm!) in a secluded hamlet with amazing views from the balcony (we really did hear the owls hooting at night). We hadn't quite appreciated the layout from the description - the master bedroom is really a large landing which leads to the twin-bedded room and there is no proper bathroom as such just a large shower, W.C and sink on the ground floor - but this added to the charm of the property. Comfy beds and lounge area, plenty of hot water, and the usual idiosyncrasy of an old property made this a welcome place to come back to after a day exploring the area. The swimming pool is amazing - so private and peaceful (shame it wasn't warmer).

We had a great holiday and feel...

About the neighborhood
At the centre of our region is Entraygues-sur-Truyère at the confluence of the Lot and Truyère rivers, which was founded in the 10th century and by the middle ages had become an important town and bustling river port shipping local produce (notably wine, cheese and wood) to Bordeaux and from there to the rest of France and beyond. The name comes from the old language of the region Occitan, which is still taught in schools and translates to “entre les eaux” meaning between the waters. Once fortified, traces of the old town walls and 2 out of 213 towers from the old castle can still be seen. Today it remains beautifully preserved with narrow cobbled streets, timbered and corbelled houses and its 2 gothic XIIIth century bridges. The Truyère bridge was a key river crossing for pilgrims on... more
