Situated just 20km north of the historic city of Cahors, one of France's leading wine centres, and 2km from the bustling village of Labastide-Murat (also known as Coeur de Causse), we offer the ideal base for exploring this beautiful region of France.
Surrounded by medieval towns and villages such as Rocamadour, St Cirq Lapopie, Sarlat and Martel, with the Dordogne river to the north and the Lot river to the south, and within in the Causse de Quercy National Park, there is an immense amount to see and do, markets to explore, local gastronomy and fine wines to discover.
For the active there is canoeing, cycling, horse riding, ballooning, cave diving, walking, not to mention our own 9 hole golf course and large swimming pool...
For those who like a bit of culture there are many local festivals such as the Cahors Jazz and Blues Festival in July, Gramat's Country Rock Festival in August and many others including art, classical music, folk music, theatre and dance.
And for those who just want to chill out, you can doze by the pool with a drink, enjoy a meal or a snack from the cafe-bar, or find a secluded spot in our 66 acres of valley and woodland.
Our nearest village is Labastide Murat, which for a population of only 700 has a surprisingly large selection of shops and businesses.
These include a Carrefour supermarket with in-store butcher and petrol station, a bank with cashpoint, post office, Bar-Tabac, butcher, bakery, pizza shop, paper shop, florist, 2 hairdressers, medical centre, a gallery, hotel and restaurant and estate agent. There is also a helpful Tourist Information Office, a library and tennis courts.
There is also a church and a museum dedicated to Joicim Murat, brother-in-law to Napoleon and a famous soldier in his own right. He was born in the village and his large mansion is a based largely on the Elisee Palace in Paris.
Markets are held every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, and during July and August there is a producers' market every Sunday morning. There are frequent flea markets and every August there is a Village Fete that runs from Friday to Monday with fairground and live entertainment.
The department of the Lot, France’s heartland and part of the old province of Quercy, is generally warmer, drier and less populated than neighbouring Dordogne to the west, with much to attract the visitor historically, culturally and gastronomically. Taking its name from the River Lot which carves its way through the rocky beauty of the Causses limestone plateau around the capital Cahors, the department of the Lot finds its eastern border in the foothills of the Massif Central. Cycling in traffic-free Lot is a delight and walking a pleasure. Horse riding, fishing and canoeing are also popular. The white stone villages of Quercy Blanc - rated some of the most beautiful in France - reflect the southern light over fields of sunflowers, melons, tobacco and vines. Enjoy the oak woods, orchids and amazing fauna and flora of the Causses du Querc Regional Natural Park. Near the Massif Central are wonderful steep valleys and panoramic mountain views.
Tree lined Boulevard de Gambetta in Cahors is the perfect place to enjoy southern café life. Rest your baskets of local produce from the twice weekly markets and stay for lunch - perhaps a cepes (wild mushroom) omelette and a glass of fruity red Cahors wine. Lovers of architecture should visit the perfect medieval village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie or hillside Figeac. At Moulin de Cassel – one of Lot’s few remaining windmills – is a monument to the French Resistance fighters who died there in 1944. Rocamadour village, which gives its name to the local goat’s cheese, is a much visited marvel clinging high on a cliff face complete with church of the Black Madonna and castle. Take a boat trip past giant stalactites and stalagmites 300ft underground at nearby Gouffre de Padirac.
The Lot is rich in pre-history, caves abound - spot dolmens and tumuli. Lascaux in nearby Dordogne may be more famous, but Lot’s pre-historic ‘Sistine Chapel’ at Pech-Merle is a much larger complex and interestingly the original 20,000 year old wall paintings can still be seen by visitors.
Rocamadour, a medieval city attached to its cliff, with the splendour of stone illuminated by the lights of the setting sun: it's an image, etched in eternity, that will remain in your memory. This extraordinary village will take you to another time, a time when people came from afar to worship the Black Virgin.
