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. <BR><BR>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 a... Read more

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014 for a stay in August 2013

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 right distance away - as well as being just the right size - to reinforce...

About the neighbourhood
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. <BR><BR>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.... more
