Local area

This little-known part of the Lot Valley is stunning all year round; its slopes clad in cherry, oak and chestnut and the Lot River meandering through beautiful towns and villages.

The riverside village of Vieillevie, a few minutes from our cottages, has a chateau, an excellent restaurant and a shop which supplies all daily requirements.

Where the Lot meets the Truyere there is the small, medieval town of Entraygues-sur-Truyere which is a must to visit and which has a weekly market in its leafy square.

The world renowned site of Conques, on the route to St Jacques de Compostella is nearby and there are many of the ‘Plus Beaux Villages de France’ to explore.


Locally there are numerous well marked walks and trails – our Welcome Pack supplies details and maps.

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

There is a horseriding centre nearby, 4 golf courses and a large ski centre within 40 mins drive.

It is an ideal area for those seeking tranquility but close to vibrant towns such as Aurillac with its international street festival in August, Figeac with its connections to Champollion and Rodez with its Medieval Cathedral and streets.

Throughout the summer months there are festivals, fetes, brocantes or markets somewhere in the vicinity.

The first weekend of June is our Cherry Festival. Not to be missed!
