Saint Projet Village
Situated in the secluded hamlet of Mas De Guinet, La Petite Grange is the perfect place for exploring the beautful unspoilt countryside.
Just a short cycle along gently winding lanes is St Projet which is home to a 13th Century chateau which boasts quite a story! The village hosts some lively fetes in the summer - the Giant Omelette and Marché Gourmand take place in July and August. Not to be outdone, nearby Parisot has the Giant Paella evening and impressive fireworks.
The rivers Lot and Aveyron are only half an hour's drive away, where canoes can be hired. There are several beautiful villages within easy reach. Our local restaurant is 5 minutes drive and the nearest supermarket is a 15 minute drive.
The local markets are not to be missed - St Antonin has a very lively market on Sunday mornings; Villefranche de Rouergue's market is on Thursday mornings but our favourite is Limogne on Sunday morning which is a quieter farmer's market.
The bastide village of Cordes-sur-Ciel is well worth a visit - on the way you drive through some of the Gaillac wine area, so why not stop at one of the vineyards for a 'degustation'. Try picturesque Najac with its Cathar castle, or St Cirq Lapopie overlooking the river Lot.
Our favourite restaurant, La Grange du Cros, has a lovely ambience and is very popular - don't forget to book!
