Holiday house

Cottage in the Lot


Want to recover from the stress around corona? Come and enjoy the peace and quiet in my completely detached house in the French Lot, where fortunately there is almost no corona. Fully equipped, free in nature, but close to Cahors and Gourdon. There is a fireplace for the cooler evenings. Excellent WiFi too! And cancel free of charge.

Enjoy nature!
Our house is located in a forest in the valley of the river Lot and in the nature reserve Le Quercy. Beautiful walking area where you can completely relax. Our site is a small green oasis. You look out on the garden and oak trees and you can fully relax.

A lot to do!
The sights of the Dordogne are all close by, but you avoid the tourist crowds in the Lot, because we are just outside the Dordogne in a part of France that is still completely authentic. Beautiful villages, rolling hills and nice markets. There is a swimming pool 5 kilometers away. Close by there are also lakes and a beach for swimming or fishing in the Lot.

The house has just been completely renovated, has a nice warm atmosphere and is fully equipped: dishwasher, washing machine, well-equipped kitchen, spacious L-shaped lounge (80 m2) with patio doors to the terrace, a dining area and a writing table, 2 bedrooms with good beds (Auping) and each with its own ensuite bathroom. The living room has a sofa bed for 2 people. Free WIFI. A well-drawn fireplace.

The terrace is the most attractive thing about our house. Here you can sit in the sun or in the shade (there is a good roof). You look out on the garden and forest and occasionally see a deer shoot by. We have good garden furniture (wood) and also a good barbecue (Jamie Oliver).

The house is located in the heart of the Le Quercy nature reserve. The area is suitable for people who enjoy walking and cycling in a rich and varied nature, but you can also swim or fish and canoe in the river Lot, take a wine tour along the many wine castles or visit the sculptor's museum Zadkine, which is a fifteen minute drive away.

Good markets nearby and delicious regional cuisine. Our house is also a good base for places of interest such as Rocamadour, Padirac, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, Cahors, Figeac, Souillac and Domme. Toulouse is a bit further, but well worth the drive.

The Lot is a beautiful region in the south of France, where rolling hills and authentic villages create a pleasant holiday atmosphere. No endless grain fields, but small-scale agriculture and forest define the landscape.
There are many local markets in the area and there are many festivities and festivals in the summer. Cahors has many music events. The film festival in Gindou is great! Cities such as Cahors and Figeac are fun to visit, as are the caves in Cougnac and Peche Merle. Also worth a visit is Rocamadour, the pilgrimage site of the black Madonna which is built on a rock. The crack in the earth at Padirac is fascinating and Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, one of the most beautiful villages in France, is also great for a day trip.

Since my childhood I have been in the French Lot and I have become attached to the landscape of fringed meadows and rolling hills. If we are not in our house we would like to give others the pleasure of enjoying the peace, space and eternal sunshine on our terrace. You are completely free with us and you quickly imagine yourself in a small paradise. After a period of hard work (nowadays as a Dutch teacher) I am usually completely zen again in one day. Try it out too!

Location & tips

Additional information

Great market in Cazals on Sunday morning. In addition to daily groceries, you will also find curiosities here. The market in Catus is every Tuesday morning. Many specialties here.
Swimming in the Lot is fantastic. You sit under the trees on the beach Antinea. There is a very nice cafe restaurant where you can eat well. And there are also canoes and pedaloes for rent.
This hole in the earth at Padirac is one of the most extraordinary geological curiosities in France. It used to be seen before the portal to hell, hence no one dared to go down for a long time. Nowadays you can simply cover the 110 meters with a staircase or lift. Then you take a boat to sail over the underground rivers. Go there early, because there are sometimes queues in the summer.
Musée Zadkine is a beautiful museum with the best works of one of the greatest sculptors of the last century - less than 5 kilometers from our house. Zadkine also made the war memorial The devastated city for Rotterdam, the human figure without a heart. His work in Les Arques is emotional, powerful, intense, better than his work in the Zadkine museum in Paris. Who does not know anything about art, understands these images! Just watch and feel! The beauty of Les Arques is that you can experience how the artist once worked here. Visit his studio and house or follow the paths he took on his daily walks through the forest. He was often looking for a nice piece of wood to work on.
