This is the real "France profonde"! 'Les Pégouriés' is an ideal base from which to explore the wonderful Lot and Célé valleys, where the rivers cut deep into the limestone, creating beautiful and dramatic scenery. Villages cling to the cliffs, and traditional farms still flourish, with their fields of tobacco, maize and sunflowers. The history and way of life of former generations are evident in all you see, from the cave paintings of Peche Merle, the nearby picturesque village of St Cirq-la-Popie, the chateaux and the ancient places of worship, to the simple hamlets and villages, the rolling cultivated land and the wild landscapes beyond.

There is something for everyone here:- beautiful countryside, abundant wildlife, a wealth of history and rural tradition and, of course, excellent food and wines.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

The Lot Valley has long been a favourite holiday destination for the French themselves, which tells you a great deal about the area. This is the traditional 'France profonde', deeply rural and unchanged in many ways over centuries. Stunning countryside, delightful medieval towns and villages, prehistoric dolmens and cave dwellings, bustling street markets, thriving wildlife...the Lot Valley carries on a way of life long-vanished in many parts of the 'modern world'.

Summers are long and hot, with sunshine generally expected from April to November...

Cajarc

A ten-minute drive down the hill from 'Les Pégouriés' takes you to Cajarc, a small town on the river Lot with a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere, offering a variety of local shops, restaurants and other facilities. It has a good municipal swimming pool - including a toddlers' pool - and a pretty waterfront for strolling, dining, or taking river boat trips.

You will find plenty to do here - simply exploring the local countryside is rewarding whilst places of interest within an easy drive include Cahors vineyards, Albi with its extraordinary cathedral and the stunning new viaduct at Millau. Closer to home, the towns of Figeac and Villefranche-de-Rouergue are interesting and lively, and the smallest of villages will often offer up a hidden treasure - a superb family-run restaurant perhaps, or an exquisite Romanesque church...visit our website for pictures and local information.

There are many local events and festivals, including the 'Africajarc' series of concerts at the end of July, featuring African music, together with African-influenced jazz and rock. For rhe more traditionally-minded, visitors are always welcome at village fetes and 'mechouis' (sheep-roasts).

"Perfect accommodation and perfect host"

The gite was beautiful, tastefully decorated with loads of characterful beams everywhere.It was also really comfortable, newly furbished and every detail thought of such as colour co-ordinated towels, dish clothes and even washing up liquid and washing powder for the washing machine, things you really need but hate to have to buy on holiday. We were also greeted with a good quality bottle of wine!
The garden was well cared for and the good sized clean pool kept the teenagers busy all week. There were plenty of good quality new loungers to go around, so no early towels!!!
Francoise was the perfect host, constantly attending the grounds and pool, friendly but not intrusive with good English skills, so no awkward misunderstandings.
He went out of his way to make our stay comfortable and made us feel very welcome indeed.
To sum up, the perfect away from it all gite the only sound that of the cuckoos calling and the buzz of the occasional tractor, what a lovely part of the world and what a lovely place to stay.

"Top Holiday Destination - for a family get together"

We could not have asked more of a holiday destination to spend time with our adult children and their partners in two French provincial gites. We loved the pool, bbq area, games of croquet, table tennis, cycling, walking in the local area, the markets in Cajarc and preparing and eating meals together in the large kitchen/dining/lounge area. Francois was the perfect manager in that he checked regularly if we needed anything and at the same time left us to enjoy our stay.
