The Midi-Pyrenees region

Saint Sulpice sur Cele is situated in the Cele River valley, in the department of the Lot, halfway between Cahors and Figeac in the midi Pyrenees. The village is in the Parc Naturel regionel des Causses du Quercy, and lies within an area known as 'le Triangle Noir du Quercy' so named because of the clear night skies, unpolluted by light.

St Sulpice is built on the escarpment, rising from the bottom of the Cele River valley to the foot of the limestone cliffs which shelter the village to the north. These cliffs stretch away southwest, as far as the confluence of the rivers Cele and Le Lot, and northeast, to Figeac. At the top of the village and built into the base of the cliffs are several troglodyte houses.

The surrounding, beautiful, and unspoilt countryside supports a rich diversity of birds, animals, and insects with the river Cele in particular providing a wonderful environment for dragonflies: a fact that attracted David Attenborough and a BBC wildlife team to make a film called 'Dragonfly Beauty or Beast'.

The Auvergne mountain range and the family small and friendly ski resort of Lioran is 82 kilometers away.

"Inspiring location and comfortable character property made for an excellent holiday base."

A great scenic location with memorable landscapes - viewed through property's windows. Well appointed and creative interior. Plenty of outdoor activities locally - especially if you like swimming and canoeing - or want to try out your potential! A selection of good restaurants, shops and markets within easy reach of the cottage. Great selection of cook books if you want to experiment with local produce and cuisine. We would love to return!

"The perfect French retreat"

I've been meaning to say how much we enjoyed our stay at la Maison d 'Anna. So many highlights - the midday dips in the river at the bottom of the lane, the wonderful walks up on the causse and along the valley, canoeing escapades, wandering in charming Figeac, frequenting friendly eateries in nearby Marcilhac, and not forgetting the garden (perfect for sitting out in during the cool of the evening), the thoughtfully restored house with its splendid views from the upstairs bedroom, and perhaps the best cottage kitchen in the world (certainly the best collection of cookery books!). Also there is far less bustle in this bit of the Lot region even in the height of the summer holidays (a far cry from much of the Dordogne which can get like Piccadilly Circus). The owner was off-site but always very responsive. I am recommending La Maison d'Anna to everyone.

"Lovely house and beautiful location"

La Maison D'Anna is a near perfect French holiday house - a lovely rustic kitchen with lots of cooking equipment, a large, bright sitting room with a beautiful view, and the most fantastic bedroom - the bed is huge! The outside space is comfortable and pretty, and you can easily walk to the river and the village swimming pool.
