Rodez, Aveyron, Occitanie
Lot River frontage ground floor gite. 1 double bedroom. Newly renovated with modern kitchen. Very quaint space with french doors that open out from the kitchen onto a terrace overlooking the river. There is a table and chairs at your disposal on the river bank. Ideally positioned for country walks, either to the village of Livinhac le haut where there is a boulangerie, tabac, convenience store, butcher and bar/restaurant, or to Boisse Penchot where there is a boulangerie and a restaurant. The boulangerie at Boisse Penchot bakes in an 800 year old wood fired oven for delicious natural breads.

Within 2 km there are kayaks to rent, across the river and walking distance there is a public swimming pool. About 2km on the other side of the river there is a wonderful camp ground with a swimming pool and tennis court very inexpensively priced fo...

A corner where you can get lost in a thousand and one ways in the Lot, Cele and Dordogne. Easy and friendly relationship with their managers. Nice stay there Enric

We spent a week with Col and Maggie while we explored the Lot Valley. They gave us a great welcome and made us feel very much at home. The gite is clean and comfortable, well furnished and well equipped for two people. Couldn't ask for more for the price paid.

A comfortable well equiped house, beautifully situated on the bank of the Lot. This is a lovely area within easy reach of historic towns and villages with lovely walks around. Maggie and Col are friendly and welcoming owners.

Regional France at is best. Peaceful location on the Lot river. Surrounded by historic villages in area not frequented by masses of tourists. Quiet roads and tracks ideal for hiking and cycling.

After a busy few weeks in France this gite was a wonderful escape into the countryside. A warm welcome from Maggie and Col makes this a home from home. It was easy to settle down into the slow lane with luscious strawberries and chocolates and red wine kindly left by my hosts. They also provided great suggestions of places to visit and every corner in this region provided breathtaking vistas. A definite place to return...

About the neighborhood
Rodez and Villefranche are the epicentres of the Aveyron, they are surrounded by many beautiful villages such as Salle la Source and Belcastel. La Maison Rouge is conveniently located near Rodez without being in the busy city, it takes just 20-30 minutes to get to the Rodez airport. Closer to home you will find the gorgeous medieval villages of Conques, La Vinzelle, Peyrusse le roc and Capdenac le haut plus many more. We provide GPS coordinates to all of these villages and sites. It is a fantastic cycling and walking area, with many things to see and do within a shot distance of La Maison Rouge. Between May and September, there is a daily restaurant boat which travels up and down the Lot River, and passes La Maison Rouge. It is very popular, and the meal and trip is well reviewed.
