Key Words: Villa Petite Chapelle is an exquisite home located in the PREMIER beautiful Village of Saint - Cirq - Lapopie. Its name comes from the tiny chapel with the cross next to the house.

Bienvenue: Villa Petite Chapelle will provide you with the perfect base from which to discover the stunning village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie and the many attractions of the Lot.

The house is well appointed and has everything you will need with the emphasis on comfort and quality. The house is artistically decorated with antiques and original artworks.

The breathtaking view of the Lot River from the terrace is arguably the best in the village.

Location: The medieval village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie stands high above the Lot perched on an outcrop of rock. The house is located at the entrance of the village. A 100 metre walk will take you to its centre. Here you can walk the cobble streets, explore artists' galleries, enjoy the food and wine specialties of the region at a cafe or restaurant or climb to the top of the outcrop for a panoramic view of the Lot Valley. However you choose to enjoy the village make sure you take the time to soak up the atmosphere of this postcard village with its outstanding architecture.

There is much to see and do in the nearby villages and towns.
Shop at bustling fresh produce markets ( a foodie's heaven), seek out a bargain at the Brocante or Vide Grenier
( empty the attic market ) and visit Chateau de Cenevieres and the historic caves of Pech Merle. Enjoy walking, hiking and bike riding in this picturesque region.The Lot River is an ideal place to swim, kayak or canoe.

The Lot Valley is less well-known than its famous relative the Loire. It is peaceful and the perfect place to reflect, relax and recharge. If you are in need of rejuvenation the incredible landscape will nourish your spirit.

Highlights of Villa Petite Chapelle: Up the steps, turn the key and the first thing you notice on entering the house is the inviting decor. White washed stone walls, original artwork by local artist Nerida de Jong and tasteful furniture create a wonderful first impression. The next thing you notice is the magnificent blue French stove. This is a REAL stove. The pantry doors are antique and a work of art.
The bedroom downstairs and the adjoining bathroom are an inviting sanctuary for relaxation. There is an antique bedhead and the bed is dresssed with beautiful antique linen sheets. The bathroom has a Moroccan influence with it niches and features a full size bath and separate rain shower.
Sitting on the terrace with its magnificent view while sipping your coffee or glass of local wine will become a favourite past time. Take the steps to the next level and admire the view again.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: My husband Pierre and I live in Perth, Western Australia. Pierre was born in France and although having travelled extensively throughout Europe we alway return to France. We love everything it has to offer.

                      Why the Owner Chose St-Cirq-Lapopie:
                      In 2010 while flicking through a magazine in a doctor's waiting room I came accross an article describing the beauty of the village of St - Cirq - La Popie and the surrounding Lot region. We had planned to holiday in France during the year but had not decided on our itinerary. Pierre and I knew little about this relatively undiscovered part of France. The description of the village and the Lot Valley made it easy for us to choose this destination for our holiday. On arrival in St Cirq we were not disappointed. On the afternoon of our arrival while wondering through the French Postcard streets I saw someone from Perth I had taught with at a local school but not seen for over twenty years. This ex -colleague was renting their holiday accommodation from a person who had a house for sale in the village. The rest is history. We fell in love with the house and the village. Buying a house in France had not been part of our holiday plans!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The stunning view from the terrace makes this the ideal spot to start the day with a morning coffee or have a glass of the superb, local red wine in the evening. Walk 100 metres and you can enjoy delicious local dishes from a range of restaurants and browse numerous artists' galleries. Enjoy cooking your purchases from local markets on our magnificent blue stove. Choose a recipe from La Cuisine or Taste Le Tour Cookbook and savour your quality fresh produce cooked simply. After a long day of hiking, exhausting shopping ( only because you are wondering how you will ever fit everything you have purchased into your case ) or touring a chateau, relax and soak in the bathtub in the romantic Moroccan bathroom.
