Gite | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 7

Key Info
  • Beach / lakeside relaxation
  • Suitable for children over
  • Car advised
  • No pets allowed

La Loutre is an old stone cottage on the edge of the hillside hamlet of Gaillac, overlooking a meander of the river Lot, with beautiful views on three sides. The medieval town of Cajarc is less than 2 miles away.

The cottage has two bedrooms, sleeping 5 comfortably, but there's also a sofa bed and a baby cot.

* New in 2013 * - wi-fi for guests to use, the river view has been opened up with railings, the terrace has been relaid, and the parking has been levelled and bordered by railings.

The pretty village of St Cirq Lapopie is nearby and the Grottes du Peche Merle – famed for their prehistoric cave paintings – are a short drive away. A day trip to Cahors is also highly recommended – only 20 miles away along the picturesque road hugging the River Lot – and Figeac is about the same distance in the other direction along the River Cele.

It's an excellent area for fishing and walking. In fact one of the St Jacques de Compostelle routes passes the door, with walkers setting off from Cajarc in the morning, enroute to the Spanish border.

We bought this house after falling in love with the amazing river views, and with this part of France - particularly Cahors, Figeac and Villefranche de Rouergue. It sits perfectly between them. We christened it La Loutre after seeing otters in the river below when quietly gazing out of the windows enjoying the view.
