Further details indoors

Poppy Cottage is comfortably furnished, a home away from home. The kitchen is well equipped as guests enjoy shopping in the wonderful French markets and creating meals to eat on the terrace or in the garden. Your hostess will endeavour to provide anything you need.

Further details outdoors

There is plenty of garden furniture on the terrace and around the garden, including two large tables and chairs, benches, sun loungers etc. There is a small barbecue too.

Further details

Not suitable for unsupervised small children as the terrace is raised. The owner has a small dog and two cats. Guests are welcome to bring pets as long as you clean up after them, and they are well behaved. The cottage is approached by a set of stone steps but is all on one level with the garden. You may smoke on the terrace but not inside the property.

The Midi-Pyrénées region

Poppy Cottage is the perfect place to discover the beautiful Quercy countryside with its old towns and fabulous markets.

Only 15 minutes away is St Circ Lapopie, one of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France, and it certainly is beautiful. Explore the narrow streets and enjoy the craft shops and traditional restaurants.

About 30 minutes away are the interesting towns of Cahors, Figeac and Villefranche de Rouergue, each with superb churches to visit. The Thursday morning market at Villefranche is one of the best in south west France.


Cajarc is a busy small town with several restaurants and bars. In late July there is the African music festival Africajarc, for more details see The place will be buzzing with music and a market of African crafts and food.

At the end of October there is a more sedate Fete du Safran du Quercy, with a special market, and menus featuring saffron in the local restaurants. You can take a tour of a saffron field with M. Didier Doucet, but if you are staying at Poppy Cottage, it will be right in front of you! Visit

"Couldn't ask for a better welcome!"

Arrived in wild weather the day before Badtille day and Caroline was extremely welcoming and helpful. The gite is in a great location to explore the delights of the Lot river valley. Cajarc is a great little town with all the services you need and the Tourist Office is very friendly. The cottage is very comfortable and we had some lovely meals in the garden thanks to the great local produce from the boucherie. Only slight problem is the wifi signal is not strong but Caroline was happy to have us in the house to get a better signal.

Thanks, it was lovely having you both here and I'm glad you enjoyed it. I have moved the Livebox into my kitchen and the wifi signal in the gite is now full strength.

"Loved it so much that I've booked again!!!"

I had a fantastic week’s holiday in this charming rural cottage in 2013 (and have booked again for 2014, can’t wait). Poppy Cottage is very clean, beautifully decorated, the bed is great - I slept so well – the shower is fantastic, the rooms are a good size and and the bedroom has lots of space for clothes (I can’t travel light). Well equipped kitchen too and a lovely garden and terraces for drinks or to relax in. There’s nothing I don’t like about it! Caroline, the owner, is as charming as her cottage and very helpful.
