A beautifully renovated 250 year old stone cottage, featured on postcards and calendars of the area, perched stunningly on the slopes of ancient Le Fel vineyards in spectacular fashion, with panoramic views over the River Lot and surrounding valley. It is 5 miles from the village of Entraygues sur Truyere and 6 miles from the hilltop village of Montsalvy.
Restored by local craftsmen, the cottage provides luxury accommodation to a high degree of comfort and ambience. Access to the entrance is via attractive stone steps rising to a small terraced area with table and chairs for al fresco meals. The entrance leads into a spacious living area comprising at one end comfortable settees, log burning stove, satellite UK TV, and has a restored original beamed ceiling. At the other end is a well equipped fitted and tiled kitchen housing a fridge freezer, dishwasher, oven and gas hob. A dining table and chairs are by French doors opening on to a small balcony overlooking the River lot. Breathtaking!

About this location
The Midi-Pyrénées region
The 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 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 Central massif, we enjoy a Mediterranean style climate with 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.

"Stunning views - well presented - quiet location"
