A cottage of character in a stunning area

  • 4 of 5

We had a week in this cottage, & sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine, watching the house martins swooping around, & gazing at the wooded valley of the Lot in the sunshine - well, it beats working! Brian & Sarah have done so much to make Le Cantou attractive, & clearly have given a lot of thought to what may be needed, or even wished for. We appreciated the help that Sarah gave us on our arrival. My wife has some problems with mobility & found the stairs in Maison de Four difficult. Sarah was there immediately to suggest we might find Le Cantou easier & this was very much appreciated. The cottage was very well appointed & clean. We had passed this area several times, but this was the first time we had spent any time here. A really beautiful part of France - interesting villages, delightful river scenery - & we would say that

Conques is an outstanding small town of character.

The River Lot is famous for canoeing and fishing. Canoes & kayaks may be hired nearby and afford a unique view of this stunning valley.

There are two horse riding centres within 30 mins and two golf courses from which the golfer has breathtaking views of the mountains and surrounding countryside.
