Location description from owner

The Occitanie region

Discover the Lot region in Midi-Pyrenees, its scenic Causses du Quercy Blanc and sunny, dry climate with mild spring and autumns and warm summers which make it possible to live outdoors for a large part of the year. Sparsely populated Quercy is well-known for its picturesque medieval villages, their shops, cafés, restaurants and traditional street markets displaying local gastronomic delicacies for all occasions – all within easy reach of the Manoir. The Lot is also famous for the “black wines” of Cahors. The local chateaux and vineyards welcome our guests warmly. We can also organise Gastronomic and Wine Discovery Programmes to suit your taste and arrange private transport to leave you free to enjoy the experience to the full.

Montdoumerc

The area around Manoir Les Gaillardoux is a lively centre of cultural and sports activities based around its rivers, pre-historic caves, gastronomy, vineyards, villages and history.

It boasts a rich architectural heritage and a wide range of cultural activities: spectacular cliff-top fortresses and historical remains; at Cahors, Pont Valentré, the magnificent medieval bridge, and the 11thC cathedral; the stunning 15thC Chateau de Cieurac near Lalbenque, and the medieval village of Saint-Cirq-Lapopie to name but a few, all of which are within half hour drive from the Manoir. The limestone geology throughout Périgord and Quercy has resulted in series of caves with stunning pre-historical cave paintings which are open to the public.

With spectacular sculptured rocky landscapes, the wide river valley of the Lot and smaller rivers like the shallow Célé attract water sports lovers for boat hire, fishing, canoeing, swimming and picnicking. The area also provides opportunities for cycling, walking, caving and golf. Tennis courts are 3 and 8 kms away.

For adrenaline filled activities, the nearby Aerodrome of Lalbenque receives private flyers and offers sightseeing flights, parachuting and gliding. It hosts a parachuting school which welcomes our guests for tandem jumping with experienced monitors. There is also a well equipped go-karting circuit for adults and older children, and the possibility to hire bicycles, river canoes and even a private barge for private celebrations! Our team can help you with all bookings. Please enquire. You will run out of time, long before you run out of things to do and see!!!

“Spacious manoir in French countryside”

Reviewed 19 Oct 2012

We spent a wonderful week in the Manoir which was spacious enough to accommodate our large group of 11. There was something for the older and younger members of our party. A splash in the pool or just a game of petanque on the gravel. The Manoir is tastefully restored and decorated. There are plenty activities to choose from. As the villa is close to Cahors, shopping trips are within reach. The Manoir is also close to some vineyards which are worth the visit; driving back to London with some extra wine cases proved to be more challenging than expected. We also enjoyed the picturesque villages in the area. Breakfast and dinner outside on the patio were a pure treat. Thank you again for making our stay memorable. U. family, UK (Summer 2012)

The pleasure is shared. Compliments from our discerning guests are always gratifying. Thank you for expressing yours so warmly. Holidays are often the stuff that dreams are made of. We aim to to help our guests make them a reality!

“The Perfect Place to Relax”

Reviewed 1 Oct 2012

The Manoir was the perfect place for our summer holiday.  We were a group of 3 families with children ranging from 20 months to 8 years old.  We loved the peaceful and picturesque location and it was lovely to allow the children to play and roam around the beautiful property.  The views from the property are stunning and we enjoyed many meals outside on the patio just taking in the gorgeous countryside and slow sunsets.  The Manoir itself is very spacious and comfortable.  We all slept very well and also enjoyed cooking in the well provisioned kitchen.  Our days were spent either exploring the surrounding area or in the pool.  Some of us also went skydiving one day at the local aerodrome which was fantastic and so close by!  I would definitely recommend the property and hope we get the chance to visit again.

From the Quercy Blanc to Bermuda with love: we are delighted you enjoyed our little corner of France and the comfort of our manoir, and we look forward to welcoming you and your delightful guests again!

“Five star accommodation in a five star location”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2012

The accommodation was superb and the Manoir furnished to a very high standard, with all the bedrooms having en suite facilities. A perfect location for several people who want to enjoy a holiday together but, at the same time maintain their own space. The Manoir is enormous with many places to relax, read or just be on your own for a while. Situated in a perfect location surrounded by beautiful countryside, with Cahors only a short drive away. Plenty of great restaurants and wine tasting, if you desire. We are mostly at the Manoir as the excellent cooking facilities there made the catering so easy and so relaxing. We hope to return there again soon.

Thank you for your lovely comments. We are delighted you enjoyed our Manoir, and look forward to welcoming you again soon. This is typical of the reviews we get for Manoir Les Gaillardoux. Our guests love the peaceful yet stunning countryside of the Lot (Midi-Pyrenees), the atmosphere of the local villages and the delicious food of the nearby restaurants. Combined with the style and 5 star comfort of our Manoir, with its heated swimming pool and sunny terrace with wide open views, most say that it is a luxury holiday that is hard to beat.
