About the property

Cottage in Lacapelle, Bagnac sur Cele, Nr. Figeac, Midi-Pyrenees - Tranquil Location, Within Easy Reach of all the Family's Needs

Maison Goody is a charming, thick stone walled traditional cottage in a quiet, friendly, unspoilt hilltop hamlet of Lacapelle. Don't expect to find "the English abroad". On the contrary it is very French and the locals are incredibly welcoming. The small hamlet has few inhabitants and is consequently a safe, traffic free environment ideal for children. The cottage literally sits on the top of a hill and has 360 views which are stunning. Despite its tranquility the cottage is only minutes from the larger town of Bagnac with bars, cafes and restaurants as well as shops, boulangeries etc. If you can face the uphill return it's a lovely walk to town. Only 15kms is the beautiful historic market town of Figeac.

The cottage accomodates 6 comfortably with three bedrooms and a further mezzanine with 2 beds. It has been renovated over recent years to a very high standard and is well equipped. There are two bathrooms, one with an actual bath.

Lacapelle is within a short distance of some of France's most beautiful villages including Conques, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, Rocamadour, Belcastel, Capdenac Le Haut, Cardiallac, Entraygues, Estaing, Espagnac and many more. The rivers Célé and Lot are close by and it's only a 30 min drive to the Dordogne. Excellent walking country. Horseriding, swimming close by. Lakes with sandy beaches and watersports within short driving distances. Amazing caves nearby including Pechmerle, Padirac, Foissac, Lacave, Presque. There is an excellent family ski resort at Super Lioran,1 hour 15 mins drive away with superb skiing and an extensive lift system. Great skiing for all abilities but much cheaper than "Les Alps".

Throughout the summer months the campsite in Bagnac opens its full size outdoor pool. This is exceptionally well managed and extremely popular with the locals.

During winter months the cottage is cosy with electric heating throughout. The large inglenook fire provides warmth and atmosphere. Full English freesat television is provided and plenty of family games. In the summer months it can be very warm with life spent outside on the terrace with amazing views or in the garden relaxing in the hammock or preparing the BBQ.

About Joanna Tollitt

We are retired teachers and now spend as much time as possible in France as amongst other things we love the French culture, the markets, the regional delicacies and the local wines!

We have made many friends in the hamlet and are always made to feel so welcome.

Joanna Tollitt purchased this cottage in 1970

Why Joanna Tollitt chose Bagnac-sur-Célé

Our charming cottage has been in the family since the early '70s and we've had many memorable holidays there with family and friends. The small hilltop hamlet has remained almost unchanged, unspoilt and is very welcoming. We have recently restored the cottage to a high standard providing excellent facilities whilst retaining

its character and charm. The property sits on the top of a hill in a quiet hamlet and is traffic free. However, within a short drive there are numerous restaurants of The Lot and the Dordogne, places of historical fascination such as Figeac, Conques, Cahors and many more. Horse riding is on the doorstep as well as a superb ski resort 75 minutes away. Bagnac, just a walk or short drive, has a campsite with a bar, cafe and games area and a magnificent open air swimming pool. This is very popular with the locals throughout the summer months. Canoeing and river swimming are available throughout the area

What makes this cottage unique

With incredible views in every direction, the cottage offers a serene tranquility but is within striking distance of many beautiful, famous French landmarks. The area has something to offer at all times of the year, even skiing in the winter! Despite having visited for over 40 years with family and friends we continue to find places to explore and get enormous pleasure from our visits. It's ideal for getting away from it all, enjoying the French culture, famous local wines and regional dishes!

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely cottage. Our three children aged 10, 6 and 2 were very well catered for. There is everything for the baby, travel cot, pushchair, highchair and stair gates which meant that we didn't need to bring any large items with us.

The place is very relaxing with amazing views and a very comfortable hammock in the orchard.

My children loved the freedom of going off to explore the village and making friends with the neighbours. As there are so few cars around I was happy to let them roam around. There is loads to do in the area for people of all ages on both wet and dry days. I highly recomend the caves at Padirac.

We will definatley be visiting again.

Beautiful cottage in unspoilt France

  • 5 of 5

We come to this property every summer and the whole family love staying there. The house is perfect for a large family and has plenty of outside space. There are lots of activities in the nearby area such as swimming (in pools, rivers and lakes) horse riding and kayaking. The whole area is beautiful and the view from the back veranda is best enjoyed with a glass of local wine!

Séjour très agréable

  • 5 of 5

Séjour en famille avec nos 5 enfants.

Les couchages sont nombreux, le jardin est très agréable.Comme nous l'avait indiqué Joanna, il manque de place pour manger avec 5 enfants dans le salon, mais ce n'est pas un problème car nous avons profité de la terrasse pour tous nos repas. Elle est spacieuse, la vue y est très belle .

En ce qui concerne les équipements, il ne manque rien, la maison est très bien équipée, propre.

Nous n'avons pas vu Joanna mais nous avions le contact d'une amie sympathique, qui est passée nous voir.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié cette maison, nous y retournerons volontiers.

Très belle location

  • 5 of 5

Dans les hauteurs du village, cette location est très agréable, accueillante, avec tout ce qu'il faut pour s'y sentir bien. En plus si le beau temps est là, vous profiterez d'une terrasse avec une vue sur la vallée magnifique.

Pour des raisons personnelles que nous comprenons parfaitement, les propriétaires ne pouvaient être là mais ils ont pris de nos nouvelles et ont chargé une voisine très gentille de nous accueillir et qui s'est toujours rendue disponible si nous avions besoin de quoi que ce soit.

La région est très belle et cette location est à recommander
