Cajarc, Lot, Occitanie
Beautifully restored house with large swimming pool set in French countryside. Authentic stone house and barns tastefully rebuilt as a family home with original Quercynoise character intact, and the light and air of a California villa. Great kitchen with views, each meal is an occasion with ingredients from local fresh markets. Perfect for families and friends, with lots of privacy. Each bedroom suite has its own bathroom. Indoor/outdoor living on terraces that surround the house and pool.

In picturesque Lot River Valley with prehistoric caves, medieval villages, castles, navigable rivers and secret swimming holes----like the Dordogne and Provence but without the crowds! Nearby Cajarc, a Roman bastide town, offers all services (post office, banks, bakeries, market, cafes, marina, etc.) plus lots of history and charm. Spend a...

There is not much more to add to the otherwise glowing comments from other clients. I absolutely adored cooking in that wonderful kitchen - it is so well equipped that it is sure to bring out the Raymond Blanc in anyone. Cajarc is just the...More

About the neighborhood
The house is on a country lane, between two small hamlets in a farming area on the bluffs above the Lot River. Neighbors are mostly farming families, with a few Parisiens who retreat here to country houses in summers. The weather in summer is balmy, great swimming and walking weather. Days can be spent lolling by the pool, exploring the countryside, dining al fresco on local, fresh food from the local open air markets. There are also excellent restaurants in Limogne, Cajarc, Cahors and Figeac.

There are daily fresh markets in the neighboring towns almost every day of the week. The Cahors open air market on Wednesday and Saturday is well worth a visit. The nearby town of Limogne has a vibrant Sunday morning market, frequented by local families and producers. These markets are...
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Toulouse International Airport is 1 1/2 hour drive: 46.6 mi
Railway: Cahors is main train station, about 45 minutes: 24.9 mi
You can fly direct to Toulouse from most major European cities and London. From Great Britain, you can also fly to Rodez. Car rentals are available at both airports. The drive from Toulouse Airport to the house is about 1 1/2 hours. From Rodez, the drive is about an hour.

From Paris, there is a fast train (5 hours) to Cahors, where you can rent a car, or take a taxi to the house.

If you chose to drive from Paris, a stop along the way in the Loire Valley to visit the great chateaus of this region is a good way to break up the trip. You will also pass through Limoges, a major town with a long history of porcelain and ceramic fabrication.
