Martin Pecheur in Lot, a cottage in Dordogne and Lot: Martin Pecheur exterior

2 bedrooms, sleeps 4 with views over the river Cele and its lovely gorges

Literally translated, the name of this house is "Kingfisher", often seen on the Célé river, in fact there is such a splendid view of the river and cliffs with it's birdlife, that a pair of binoculars would not be wasted!

Situated in the quiet village of Sauliac-sur-Célé, this comfortable stone house is in a perfect setting, surrounded by high limestone plateaux. The village has a church, chateau and wonderful walks where the houses have been built into the rocks. There are lots of caves to explore, together with canoeing, climbing, horse riding, fishing, cycling and tennis. There is off road parking for one car just outside the house, further parking is available in the village square 50 metres away.

Outside is a south facing terrace with table and chairs, charcoal barbecue, an octagonal 4x3 m swimming pool with an attractive natural stone paved terrace, views over the river, lawns and shrubs. All the views from the house are of the garden and river. There are also sun loungers for your use.

Inside on the lower floor is a good sized kitchen with table and 4 chairs, microwave, full size gas cooker, fridge with freezer compartment, washing machine, iron and ironing board and toaster. There are also plenty of pots and pans, crockery, cutlery and glasses. There is a shower room with shower cubicle, handbasin and WC

On the street level is a comfortable living room with wood burning stove, 3 piece suite, coffee table and a selection of English books. There is also a bedroom with double bed, wardrobe and chest of drawers, bedside lamp, en suite WC and handbasin.

Upstairs under the eaves of the roof is a bedroom with 2 single beds, rocking chair, hanging rail and chest of drawers, bedside lamp.

Sauliac-sur-Célé is 20 miles from Figeac, the main market town on the River Célé, and only 9 miles from Saint Cirq Lapopie, a beautiful medieval village (one of the most picturesque in France) built high on the cliffs above the River Lot, with its many local artisan shops and a wide variety of restaurants. 25 miles west is the town of Cahors, the Prefecture (capital) of the department. It is easy to reach the local markets and interesting or historical places from Sauliac, and the roads are great for cycling due to the lack of traffic. We are also only several minutes away from the Grottes du Pech Merle, if you like caves you must visit this, it has some of the most renowned prehistoric cave paintings, as well as lots of stalactites and stalagmites, and also the largest colony of long eared bats in Europe.
Rocamadour is about 50 minutes away and is the second most visited historic site in France (outside Paris) after Mont St Michel. It is an amazing place built against the cliff face. See the black Madonna in the cathedral and climb the ramparts of the old Chateau, and in the last week of September see the hot air balloon festival.

Pets are welcomed.
