Kayaking/Canoeing/Rafting and river cruises down the Lot Valley are just a few of the many outdoor activities readily available. There's an abundance of wildlife/birdlife on the doorstep and breathtaking scenery and dramatic l...

About the neighbourhood
Our local village of Martiel is just 10 mins. walk away. There is an 'alimentation' (corner shop) , where you can purchase your essentials, a Boulangerie, Post Office, hairdressers, church and a tennis court.

The bastide town of Villefranche is only 10 mins. drive away and there you will find large supermarkets, an abundance of excellent restaurants and bars, shops, doctors, dentists, hospital etc., etc.

Throughout the summer there are fetes in every local village and the local markets are well worth a visit (Villefranche and St. Antonin Noble Val are particularly good ones). There are excellent restaurants within a few kilometers offering superb local cuisine and wines. The set 'menus' are superb value for money, especially at lunchtime.
