The Midi-Pyrénées 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.

"A super Gite in a peaceful, relaxed location set in stunning sceanery."

"Home-from-home with outstanding communication from owner"
Where to start?
Myself plus my wife, two-year-old son and parents-in-law enjoyed a perfect week in August, and would recommend the property to anyone. Stylish, spacious, cosy, jaw-droppingly well-equipped and in a beautiful location, the cottage had us spellbound from the outset.
Perhaps as importantly, the communication and flexibility of the owner, Michele, was also exemplary - she was incredibly helpful both before, during and after, and even let us stay an extra night with no worries.
The cottage is gorgeous: a vision of old stone and wood, decked out in luxurious vintage country style inside. It's precisely the kind of holiday home one dreams of owning!
Every room is generously stocked with home comforts - everything is taken care of: from the wonderful kitchen and its vast arrays of cookbooks, condiments and pans; to the impressive bookshelves packed with literary classics and games; to the neat cellar with its bikes, boules and BBQ.
We enjoyed staying in as much as going out! The garden was a lovely place to eat, drink and relax, with nearby walks and stunning views - and several exquisite villages a stone's throw away.
We cannot speak any more highly of this idyllic retreat. Enjoy!

"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.
