Perched on a hilltop above the Lot gorges is Golinach which is on the pilgrim's path of St Jacques De Compestello.

In the heart of this dramatically positioned village is La Cachette - a beautifully restored house which has been lovingly renovated and extended by its owners and with all modern facilities makes for a very comfortable and spacious house.

It sits comfortably on the side of a south facing hilltop overlooking the river Lot 500 feet below and Entraygues - sur- Truyere. The magnificent valleys and hills give stunning views over this wonderful region of the Aveyron, Southern France.

Riverside Entraygues is 10 minutes drive and is well served by shops, a bank, post office and several restaurants and bars. Estaing and Conques both listed as two of the 100 most beautiful villages of France are 15 minutes away. Rodez from Stansted is the nearest airport- an hour away.

Entry to the house leads up to the kitchen and dining area which seats 6 people comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, microwave, fridge, electric cooker and 4 hobs.

The Midi-Pyrenees region

The Cantal region descends from the breathtaking volcanic mountains in the north down through gorges and river valleys. Steeped in historical interest it has an abundance of ancient sites, monuments, castles, towns and beautiful villages. It is an unspoilt region where visitors can enjoy rural life with clean air and glorious countryside yet still find plenty of activities to interest everyone of any age. The local people are friendly and take great pride in their region's heritage and are always keen to introduce visitors to their treasures whether food, drink, their way of life or the countryside.

Most of our properties are located around the medieval village of Entraygues sur Truyère nestling in the heart of the picturesque Vallée du Lot on the border of the Cantal and Aveyron. Entraygues is in the north of the department (or county) known as the Aveyron, which is one of eight in the Midi-Pyrenees. It is here where the river Truyère tumbles out of the Auvergne and joins the river Lot.


The area is geographically extreme and very beautiful with an enormous amount of views to take your breath away! The climate here can also be extreme, but being sheletered sheltered by the northern and easterly aspects of the Auvergne and Aubrac mountains, part of the Massid Central, we enjoy cold crisp snowy winters, stunning Springs, long hot summers (although due to the altitude night times are thankfully cool) and long spectaular warm autumns with day after day of blue skies.

Whether you like walking, driving around to explore medieval villages, more sternous activity such as canoeing or horse riding, sampling the delights of the regional cuisine there is something for everyone. All our houses have information on what to do.

With the nearest Auto route 60 miles away and the nearest railway line 30 miles little has changed over the years and the Vallée du Lot remains a haven of peace and tranquillity.
