A seemingly timeless part of South France, Puyjourdes. Exceptionally beautiful, in history.
It's not difficult to relax here at the Reid's part of the world. Miles of beautiful scenery every which way. You definitely need a car, or a sturdy bike!! Villages every few kilometres, just head out of the village and it's not far to anywhere. Experience a natural rural South France.
Facilities are modern and kitchens well equipped with everything you need for at least a week. A good washing machine is a plus when you're on the road for some weeks. And to cook good food is a pleasant change.
Our Stay was perfect, The villa was just what we needed and the surrounds and views were truly beautiful. We were able to see the wonderful views from the living area, total relaxation which is what we were hoping for and we certainly got it. The dips in the lovely pool cooled us off to do a bit more relaxing in the sun. The village was so friendly and we became regulars in the bar in the nearby town! Certainly a place we will never forget. Thank you Emma. Elaine & Freddie, Hull.
The first guests
As the first couple to stay here it's only fair to return the compliment i'etable paid us. We had a blisfully peaceful week of serenity and calm - literally the only noise in the village is the Church bell and the cockrel next door !
Highly recommend this to anyone who wanted to get away from it all - take lots of books and leave what you finish for the next guests as we did.
The house is beautifully finished - especially liked the shower. A comment bok for visitors might be an idea so that recommendations for places to go can be passed on.
This is a charming gite in an unbeatable location and we wish the owners every success with the project and lots more contented guests.
L'Etable en Aout 2014
Un joli gîte très bien équipé dans une magnifique région. Séjour rendu très agréable par la gentillesse et la discrétion d'Emma et Amisch. A recommander vivement.

Wer einmal absolut abschalten und sich entspannen will, der ist hier auf alle Fälle richtig! Wir (2 Erwachsene und Hund) haben uns sehr wohl im L`ètable gefühlt. Die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist einfach traumhaft, das Dorf wirkt verwunschen, sauber und leuchtend. Man ist völlig für sich. Der Zugang zum kleinen Ferienhaus sowie zum großen erfolgt separat. Lediglich den Pool muss man sich mit den Bewohnern des großen Ferienhauses teilen. Am Pool kann es dann unter Umständen auch mal lebhafter zugehen. Ansonsten sind wir völlig begeistert. Für Hundebesitzer ist es noch wichtig zu wissen, dass der eigene Bereich nicht eingezäunt ist. Der Hund muss also schon ein wenig diszipliniert sein, wenn die anderen Gäste nicht von ihm besucht werden wollen.
Dream vacation in a picture-perfect setting
This is one of most beautiful and serene places we have ever vacationed, it is almost hard to believe that such places exist in real life and not only in pretty calendars or coffee table books. Everything was perfect - the L'Etabl cottage, the surroundings, the hosts.
The L'Etabl cottage is beautifully restored with all modern amenities and yet retaining its original character and charm. The owners have done an amazing job rebuilding it to make it comfortable, aesthetically stunning and very well maintained. It was just magical having breakfasts on the terrace overlooking the pool and the vast green fields. Combined with the natural beauty of the area, this makes it a perfect vacation spot where you truly forget that there is a busy world out there.
Puyjourdes village itself is sweet, quiet, colorful and full of character. The central street is lined with centuries old houses, there are flowers on all window sills and porches. The village has no stores but the produce van drives through every day delivering fresh bread and all the staples, it rolls through the village honking and people, just like in movies, come out of their homes to buy bread and chat with the driver. If you like to hike or take walks, there are dozens of paths all around, and because it is Europe, there are a lot of public byways and trails, we walked for hours and hours and did not see a single "Keep out" or "No Trespassing" sign that you see on every step in the US. Local people are very friendly and welcoming and although I do not speak French, I had several "conversations" that consisted of lots of mimicking and hand gesturing.
Outside Puyjordes close by there are many beautiful historic towns with well-preserved castles, cobble stone streets and the famous blue shutters. There are excellent farmers markets near by and plenty of restaurants for all tastes and budgets.
A fantastic place all around! We highly recommend it and hope to return there at some point.
We traveled from the West coast of the USA.
Activity and Interests
Visiting the charming Market towns of Cajarc and Limogne both of which are 10 kilometers away and have markets on Saturday and Sunday respectively. Other towns to visit include Villeneuve-du-Rouergue, St.-Cirq-Lapopie, Figeac where Champollion of Rosetta Stone fame was born.
To work off the good food and take a break from the pool there are plenty of Road and Mountain Bike riding paths around the village and in the wider LOT region. Our favourite is the bike and walking track to Carjac. Horse riding, Walking, Kayaking, Swimming, Water skiing, Caving, Climbing, Parapenting are all within a easy drive or bike ride. A favourite of the kids (from 7 to 70 !!) is the rope course with various levels of difficulty finishing with a flying fox over the lake. All of these are within 15 kilometres.
Other Activities: Kayaking, caving
