Gite in Midi Pyrenees, France
Property Details of Midi Pyrenees Gite
Set among fields and wooded hillsides between the river Lot and the smaller river Célé in the Parc Naturel des Causses, 'Les Pégouriés' offers comfortable accommodation and a tranquil setting for holidays in what remains one of the most unspoilt and fascinating areas of France.
“Les Pégouriés” is situated up a short track off a minor road, no immediate neighbours, no traffic noise! It was originally a traditional farm, dating back to the end of the 18th century and surrounded by open fields, woods and hillsides. We now live in the farmhouse, and have carefully converted and decorated the two large barns to provide three self-catering “gîtes” – the French term for a simple, comfortable holiday home - with privacy, comfort and character.
Each of our “gîtes” faces a different direction and is completely self-contained. All three are carpeted throughout with sisal matting or tiled, with rugs, and are simply decorated and well furnished. Each bathroom has a loo, shower and washbasin. Kitchen areas are all well-equipped, and each has a full-size cooker and fridge. Each gîte has a grassed or paved area immediately outside together with barbecue and garden furniture for outdoor eating, and there are pleasant garden areas close by for your use.
There is a washing machine for the shared use of guests, as well as as clotheslines, iron and ironing board. There are also bikes, games including croquet, badminton and table-tennis and a wide range of books, maps and information freely available.
Local Area DetailsYou will find plenty to do and see here. 'Les Pégouriés' is an ideal base from which to explore the Lot and Célé valleys, where the rivers cut deep into the limestone, creating beautiful and dramatic scenery. Villages cling to the cliffs, and traditional farms still flourish, with their fields of tobacco, maize and sunflowers. The history and way of life of former generations are evident in all you see, from the cave paintings of Peche Merle, the nearby picturesque village of St Cirq-la-Popie, the chateaux and the ancient places of worship, to the simple hamlets and villages, the rolling cultivated land and the wild landscapes beyond.
There is something for everyone here:- beautiful countryside, abundant wildlife, a wealth of history and rural tradition and, of course, excellent food and wines. The whole area is captivating, and there are endless opportunities for discovery and delight, both locally and further afield. Figeac, less than half an hour's drive away, is an old and interesting market town, with medieval streets and squares and many well-restored buildings, but is not thronged with tourists. It has a good hypermarket nearby, as does the town of Villefranche de Rouergue. A little further than Figeac, Villefranche has perhaps the best of all the local markets everyThursday morning.
Many of the nicest things to see and do are to be found locally, but if you
want to explore further afield there are plenty of interesting places
within reach. Here are just a few: CAHORS Vineyards famed for deep red
wines, an impressive 14th century fortified bridge, an interesting old
quarter around the cathedral. Enjoy the wonderful drive along the Lot
PECH MERLE, near Cabrerets. Marvellous caves with prehistoric cave
