Le Four is a traditional detached stone cottage nestling peacefully overlooking the River Lot in a particularly interesting section of this stunning valley. The cottage has its own sandy riverside beach where visitors have watched kingfishers and herons, whilst red kites and eagles circle the sky. Conques - the most magical village in France is just 12 miles away.

The property has been skilfully renovated by the proprietor (the village carpenter), to offer a combination of the highest possible standards of comfort with an impressive inventory of equipment. The kitchen has fitted oak units with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, electric oven and gas hob. The utility room has toilet, washing machine and separate shower room with hand basin. A large living and dining room with beamed oak ceiling and mellow stone walls opening through French doors onto a covered veranda overlooks the river. There is a log burning stove (with logs supplied); UK digital TV, telephone, a sofa and chairs. The large dining table converts to a billiard table. The south-facing veranda has table and chairs and barbecue for al fresco meals.

Visitors have told us that at all times of year, the veranda is so sheltered that they have eaten all their meals there. Bedroom 1 upstairs has a double bed and French windows opening out to a wonderful view of the river, whilst bedroom 2 has twin beds. Duvets, linen and towels are provided. There is also an upstairs toilet with hand basin. Full oil fired central heating for low season holidays is available. There is a garage for one car and ample parking for additional vehicles. The swimming pool has been built into the rocks in a very sunny sheltered location. In May and June watch for the local Lot Valley Moth. (saturnia pyri) It has up to a 6" wingspan, is green in colour and found between Vieillevie and Entraygues.

The cottage is within 20 minutes walking distance of Vieillevie which has two restaurants and a recently reopened local store which sells fresh bread and croissants daily and serves as an Internet cafe. Entraygues and Montsalvy are both 8 miles away.

Two bicycles are provided for use at the users' risk.

This cottage is always the most popular of the total estate and early bookings are necessary to secure your preferred time.

The Auvergne 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 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.
