Gourdon, Lot, Occitanie
La Borie du Fourquet is a traditional former farmstead set in the heart of the Bouriane area of the Lot departement, 5 km south of the small market town of Gourdon. The immediate area is made up of wooded hills and meadows filled with flowers in springtime with small walnut orchards, truffle orchards and vineyards nestling here and there. It is ideal for walkers and nature lovers. May and June are the best months for spotting the many species of orchid within a few minutes walk of the house whilst September and October bring a wide variety of fungi including the highly prized cep. Within easy reach are the Dordogne and Lot valleys with their picturesque towns, cliff-top villages and castles as well as opportunities for swimming, canoeing and indulging in la gastronomie.
The accomodation is traditionally arranged mainly on the first floo...

The accommodation is of a very high standard with a particularly well equipped kitchen perfect for self catering. The owners provide lots of information about the local area and were very welcoming. A great sunny terrace and countryside surrounds, excellent all round!

La Borie is tucked away in the countryside about 10 mins drive from Gourdon. The gite is comfortable, well equipped and spotlessly clean. There is lots of information provided about places to visit by car and good walks in the surrounding countryside. Brian, Helen and Rachel were really helpful hosts. We spent a very enjoyable week there. Our tip -...

This property is absolutely wonderful, with a large terrace overlooking fields and woods and the only sounds are that of the local birds. The accommodation is all first class with lovely furnishing throughout. Brian and Helen were such lovely people and eager to assist in any way when ever required.

About the neighbourhood
Gourdon itself is an attractive hilltop market town with a picturesque medieval centre and a variety of supermarkets, shops, bars and restaurants and is within easy reach of Sarlat, Domme, Souillac, Rocamadour, St-Cirq Lapopie , Figeac and Cahors. A weekly market is held on Saturdays all year round and on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month.
The surrounding area is still mostly devoted to mixed farming and Gourdon is the centre of production for many duck-based specialities such as confit de canard and foie gras. Many farmhouses still keep the traditional long barns with a basse cour of chickens, geese, duck and guinea fowl and traces of a time gone by still linger in the breadovens and lavoirs by the waysides.
The traditional farming methods ensure the existence of an abundance of w...
