Le Poulailler is one of four beautifully converted former outbuildings of the 18th century farmstead “La Domaine du Puech” overlooking the valley of the Auze river, which flows into the Lot in the nearby village of St Projet.

Combining the original chicken house and chestnut store the gite has been sympathetically renovated to bring together the traditional features of the 18th century and the style of the 21st. The local schist stone walls with slate fishtail tiled roof particular to the area and the traditional chestnut timbers provide a dramatic backdrop to the comfortable modern fittings.

The open plan living/dining area has table and chairs, sofa, UK TV, DVD player and a wood burning stove (logs provided). To the right, three steps lead into a separate kitchen, fully equipped with electric oven and hob, fridge freezer, microwave and dishwasher, kettle, filter coffee maker and toaster.

The bathroom has a full sized bath with shower, washbasin and toilet.

On the first floor is the converted 'secadou', originally the storehouse for the chestnut harvest. It offers a double bed and a single bed in one room with a chest of drawers and hanging space.

The living area opens on to a private, secluded patio with table and chairs and a fully fenced (dog friendly) lawned garden with fruit trees. There is a barbecue and sun loungers.

The 8 x 4 metre salt water pool surrounded with paving is in a secluded spot overlooking the valley views and is available for all the gite guests to enjoy whenever they wish. Sun loungers are available for relaxing.

A fully equipped laundry room with two washing machines and a tumble dryer provides a shared facility for washing and drying. All bed linen and towels are provided and cleaning is included.

Ample private parking is available on the site and Le Poulailler has free WiFi access.

Cassaniouze is the nearest village, 5kms away, where there is a large lake for swimming, day ticket fishing or hiring a pedalo.

A further 5kms takes you to Calvinet where you will find all the necessary services, pharmacy, bank, butchers and bakers. There is also the Hotel Beauséjour, one of only two Michelin starred restaurants in the Cantal and very good value.

Calvinet is renowned for it's Christmas market and illuminations, so why not

The Midi-Pyrénées 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.

Entraygues-sur-Truyere

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.

Cassaniouze is the nearest village, 5kms away, where there is a large lake for swimming, day ticket fishing or hiring a pedalo.

A further 5kms takes you to Calvinet where you will find all the necessary services, pharmacy, bank, butchers and bakers. There is also the Hotel Beauséjour, one of only two Michelin starred restaurants in the Cantal and very good value.

Calvinet is renowned for it's Christmas market and illuminations, so why not take a winter break in this beautiful unspoilt part of France.
