Beautifully restored farmhouse with large swimming pool set in French countryside. Authentic stone house and barns tastefully rebuilt as a family home with original Quercynoise character intact, but the light and air of a Mediterranean villa. With 3 bedroom suites and 3,000 square feet, the house is easy and comfortable for families. Great kitchen. Terraces adjoin living areas for indoor/outdoor living and al fresco dining.

Roman bastide town of Cajarc nearby offers shopping, bank, P.O., bakeries, restaurants. Prehistoric sites and caves (Pech Merle, Gouffre de Padirac, etc.), fresh markets, boating and kayaking, hiking, bicycling, horseback riding, and wine-tasting all wit... Read more

Reviewed August 27, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This is a really beautiful home and renovated in keeping with the surrounding Quercy style homes. I travelled with my extended family including 6 adults and 2 x 10 year old children and there was something for everyone. Having stayed in the Dordogne a couple of times, I was really surprised by just how peaceful the Lot valley was in...

About the neighborhood
The house is situated in an ideal location for exploring the best of the Lot River Valley. This river valley has remained much as it was in the 19th Century, carefully protected from the ravages of industrialization. Medieval villages, pre-historic caves, beautiful rivers, unspoiled countryside that's great for hiking and biking. Many French and others find the Lot and wish never to leave. So appreciated by the French, this landscape has been given the designation of 'Natural Regional Park', where traditional farming co-exists with tourism. The house is located on a country lane that passes through farms, on a bluff above the Lot River, not far from busy small villages and towns.
