Vineyard to Nature Reserve.
The 30 acre Domaine Le Sabatou was previously a lavender plantation and vineyard. Since 1989 Le Sabatou has flourished as a protected nature reserve free from agricultural chemicals. Le Sabatou has seen the return of an extraordinary abundance of wild flowers, particularly orchids, stimulating the return of bees and a huge diversity of insects triggering the revival of a fabulous eco system. Today the tranquil deer are visible in the open wild flower meadow around the house.

Walking and Cycling Holidays
Leading off directly from the house small footpaths join onto the network of public footpaths. A printed guide to these walks is provided upon your arrival at the property. Immediately above the property on the plateau (locally called the “Causse”) is the stone remains of an old windmill. From here it is possible to see, across the next valley, the fully restored and working windmill at Bois and then further onto the 3 windmills of Castelnau-Montratier.

On the opposite side of Cezac, the village to which Le Sabatou belongs, runs the famous GR65 walking pilgrimage route of St. Jaques de Compostella leading towards either Cahors or to Montcuq and Lauzerte.

Enthusiasts of off road cycling will find these paths create the perfect combination of up and down gradients and enjoyable challenges on low hill heights.

For on road cycling this area offers quite, traffic free roads with picturesque villages to stop at for refreshment.

Medieval Hilltop Villages, local produce markets, cafes & restaurants.

The three surrounding medieval hilltop villages of Castelnau-Montratier, Montcuq and Lauzerte (8 to 17kms from Cezac) are some of Frances “most beautiful villages”. The local produce markets are a must to visit. The Wednesday evening market at Castelnau-Montratier, for example, has live music and outdoor tables for dinning throughout July and August. This is the real France with children and teenagers running around the village square with old men playing “petanque”.

Cahors is without question one of the most beautiful historic towns, set in the meander of the river Lot with the medieval Valantry bridge.
Lot River Valley – Canoeing, Grotte de Peche Merle, St Cirque Lapopie.
Along the valley east of Cahors is a concentration of wine chateaux, traditionally the home of malbec grapes.

Reviews :
We have just spent two weeks at Le Sabatou, a perfect retreat in total seclusion for anyone who appreciates open spaces, nature and walking. The gite is charming and has been thoughtfully arranged to enjoy the views of the countryside. Geoffrey the owner is charming and discrete and was on hand when assistance needed. The swimming pool was perfect and we cannot recommend the gite enough.

Prices quoted are for 4 people in July and August. Please add £105pp per week in High season and £140pp in Peak season. The rest of year prices quoted are for 2 people, please add £70 pp. Max limited to 6.
