Soulou is a recently renovated detached period property perched peacefully overlooking the River Lot in a particularly attractive and unspoilt section of this spectacular valley. It has its own access to the river where you can swim or watch the wildlife.

The cottage is comfortably furnished and has a well equipped kitchen.

The fitted kitchen area houses a refrigerator, electric cooker with gas hob and a microwave. Also downstairs a bathroom has shower, WC and wash basin. French windows lead out to a veranda with stunning views overlooking the river, with table and chairs enabling al fresco eating.

Upstairs one bedroom has a double bed and the other has twin beds. There is a family bathroom with bath, WC and wash basin.
Duvets, linen and towels are provided. There is washing machine is in the cellar. The 6 metre oval swimming pool is built into the rock in a very sheltered position and has a small decking area for sun bathing.

There are several terraces at differing levels to make full use of the sunny position. A barbecue and garden furniture are provided for al fresco meals. The area around the property abounds with wildlife. Red kite nest just across the river and deer and even wild pigs have been seen in the vicinity of the cottage.

The cottage is approached by a long flight of steps making it possibly unsuitable for the elderly or infirm.

The property is within 20 minutes walking distance of the village of Vieillevie which has two restaurants and a recently reopened local store which sells fresh bread and croissants daily and has an internet cafe. Entraygues and Montsalvy are both 8 miles away. In the other direction along the river and 5 minute drive away is Grande Vabre where apart from local stores and restaurants there is a garage for fuel.

Many of our visitors return regularly here for the cosiness and position of this valley side retreat.

The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes 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 Truyre nestling in the heart of the picturesque Valle 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 Truyre 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.

Vieillevie

The village of Vieillevie has a highly recommended restaurant, charming chateau and local store selling basic supplies, fresh bread and croissants daily and is a short walk down from the house. It is also a post office and internet café. The nearest towns are Entraygues-sur-Truyère (17km) and Montsalvy (14km) where you will find banks, local shops, bakers, bars and restaurants plus weekly markets. The large towns of Aurillac and Rodez are about an hours drive and both offer extensive shopping, culture, restaurants and activities to suit all tastes.

Whether you like walking, driving around to explore medieval villages, more strenuous 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.
