Fantastic magical holiday

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we were given a fantastic welcome. We arrived on Sunday after a long journey , unsure of the French custom we didn’t realise that all shops would be shut . This didn’t cause any problem as Christophe and Regina were there with a cooler bag with essential supplies fiom their own kitchen , sharing bread, milk , and other groceries that would see us through to when the supermarkets opened. Both my husband and I realised at this point , that our stay at this beautiful homely gite would be most enjoyable . We had two small dogs with us and the enclosed garden was a great playground for them , with enough space to run and play without being able to escape. With only a very little understanding of French ( from 45 years peviously at school ) we managed to understand most things that Regine and Christophe spoke to us about. The instruction book and local area information was in French , however Regine kindly printed us the day after we arrived a concise information sheet in regard to local sites, markets etc and general hosehold rules...which by the way consisted of treat the gite as your home, and where we put our rubbish. All I can say, anyone staying at thus gite in gintrac will have one of the best holidays ever, with great hosts, and just magical surroundings. See you next year and thankyou Christophe abd Regine for a great holiday. Keith and Maggie xx

Jolie petite maison dans un hameau calme

  • 5 of 5

Les propriétaires sont accueillants et donnent volontiers des conseils sur les activités à faire et les lieux à visiter dans la région. Ils ont préparé une bouteille de vin pour notre arrivée et nous ont donné deux cagettes de bons légumes de leur jardin durant notre séjour. La maison et les alentours sont très soignés, tout est propre, en bon état et fonctionnel. Une grande table extérieure permet de prendre les repas à l'ombre d'un arbre. L'isolation phonique entre les chambres n'est pas des plus performante mais pour un séjour en famille cela ne nous a pas dérangé.

Very comfortable gîte made of stone, with the typical architecture of an old 1806 Quercy house, fully restored, in a natural setting.

Laid on an enclosed and private land, this gîte offers modern facilities.

Sheltered and flowered garden, children playground: swings, trampoline, slide, cabin with games and ping-pong table.

Garden furniture, sun umbrellas, barbecue, terrace and deckchairs.

The gîte is a starting point for hiking paths (lanes, dolmens, viewpoints...)

Perfect area for mountain and hybrid biking.

Fishing areas nearby (the Dordogne River is 5 km away), bathing and canoeing.

An ideal location to visit the prettiest places of interest of Lot: Rocamadour, Padirac Chasm, Castelnau Castle, Regional Park of the Causses, medieval villages (Loubressac, Autoire, Carennac, Saint-Cirq Lapopie, Collonges-la-Rouge...).

Dordogne Valley, Lot Valley, Célé Valley, Figeac, Cahors...

Casino 5 km away (in Alvignac)

Golf course 12 km away (in Montal)

Saint Céré music festival

Rich and diversified gastronomy (lamb of Quercy, Rocamadour cheese, wine from Cahors, white melon of Quercy, nuts, duck, trout...)
