Overview
Cottage -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Martiel, Aveyron, Occitanie
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). We can accommodate parties of up to 10 people as we also have a separate cottage which sleeps 4.

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 l...

The cottage has 2 large bedrooms with exceptionally comfortable beds and beautiful bedding(which was changed part way through our 11 night stay). There are all the...

Superb experience from when arrived until we left. The cottage was spacious enough for a small family and everything was nice decorated and in order. The place is run by a very nice British couple and they were very informative about the things to do in the area. Right next to the cottage there is a beautiful pool, which is...

About the neighborhood
Our local village of Martiel is just 10 mins. walk away. There is an 'alimentation' (corner shop) , where you can purchase your essentials, a Boulangerie, Post Office, hairdressers, church and a tennis court.

The bastide town of Villefranche is only 10 mins. drive away and there you will find large supermarkets, an abundance of excellent restaurants and bars, shops, doctors, dentists, hospital etc., etc.

Throughout the summer there are fetes in every local village and the local markets are well worth a visit (Villefranche and St. Antonin Noble Val are particularly good ones). There are excellent restaurants within a few kilometers offering superb local cuisine and wines. The set 'menus' are superb value for money, especially at lunchtime.
