Country House With Mature Private Gardens And Heated Pool



Updated: 29-Aug-2016
Country House in Labastidette, Near Cahors and Gourdon, Lot, Midi-Pyrenees - Easy Access To Lot And Dordogne Valleys

L'Ermitage is a lovely restored country house in mature private gardens set in the midst of beautiful French countryside. Situated in the Bouriane, a pretty area of trees, hills and rolling farmland lying midway between the valleys of the Lot and Dordogne. Weekly markets, shops and restaurants can be found in nearby market towns. Country setting but convenient for A20 autoroute and RN20 (D820) giving easy access to the surrounding area including the medieval town of Gourdon and historic Cahors set within a loop on the river Lot. Domme, Sarlat, Rocamadour, Padirac and the river Dordogne are a short drive north, and equidistant southwards is the unspoilt valley of the river Lot with riverside hamlets and the beautiful village of St-Cirq-Lapopie set in a cliff face overlooking the river. Traditional festivals and fetes are often held in nearby villages and the area is ideal for day trips, walking, canoeing and golf.

What an amazing "gite"

Beautiful location with great views.

The acoustics in the main room are fantastic.... Beethoven's Fifth Symphony has never sounded better!

Secluded French Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We travelled from Australia and stayed for a week in this beautiful, traditional rural French home, surrounded by lush trees and rolling hills. It has a fascinating pre French Revolution pigeonnaire inside and large spacious rooms. The home was so appealing we would have stayed for months. We did many day trips to the surrounding towns to see castles, monasteries, rivers and bridges. The markets in Sarlat were amazing too. We enjoyed cooking our meals in the well equiped kitchens, yes there are two cooking areas. It really felt like a different world leaving the hustle of our working life behind and totally relaxing in this hidden gem. We would totally recommend anyone wanting a getaway to hire a car and stay at L'Ermitage, we will definitely come back again. Thanks so much for sharing your home with travellers like us.
