About this property

Charming Cottage In Beautiful Location. This cottage/gite is in a village setting.

On the edge of the very pretty hamlet of St Medard, deep in the country, this delightful self catering holiday cottage, with private heated swimming pool, is situated in a haven of greenery and nestled in superb gardens where the cicadas sing. The self catering holiday cottage is beautifully appointed with every attention to detail, fully furnished, extremely well equipped and ideally situated for exploring this wonderful region of France. Situated in the grounds of the owners own house, the holiday cottage has its own separate parking area and guests would be quite private. Ideally sleeping 4 guests with additional accommodation suitable for a child sleeping on the sofa bed. The owners are very happy to welcome you with a local aperitif.

The owners also have a large, beautifully appointed room attached to their house, which they use for bed and breakfast which, if available, could also be used to accommodate 2 further guests - please contact us for further details.

The private heated swimming pool is a particular feature situated on a higher level and slightly away from the holiday cottage itself. It has an amazing cover which can be opened so that the swimming pool is half roofed for cooler days and slides right back to make the pool completely open for those long, sunny days of summer. The cover is extremely simple and easy to use and the pool should be left covered and locked when no-one is swimming. Access to the private swimming pool is gained through a lockable gate, thus ensuring young children can run around the garden in safety.

St Medard is a delightful hamlet where you will find a famous restaurant called Le Gindreau where one can eat on the terrace overlooking fantastic views and the food is exquisite, but expensive. A perfect setting for that very special occasion. The nearest village for general shopping is Catus which has a bustling, lively market every Tuesday and a large, pretty lake for boating and swimming. The bustling, medieval town of Cahors, situated on the river Lot, is only 15km away.

Nearby attractions include horse riding, golf, canoeing and prehistoric caves. All around are the naturistic delights of bird watching and walking in unspoilt countryside with an abundance of wild flowers and rare orchids.

This delightful self catering holiday cottage is extremely popular with all our clients and usually gets booked up early for the following summer season. If you would like to book this property for your holiday in 2019 please contact us as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Outside the peak summer weeks of July and August, there is a lower price for just 2 guests staying in the gite - please contact us for prices.
