You won’t meet a soul on the drive to get here, except possibly a wild deer. This intimate hotel, made up of a sprinkling of 18th-century buildings on several lush levels, hides among the oak woods and gazes down on the river with beautiful views of the valley. Come for a smiling welcome and an atmosphere of relaxed comfort: Joséphine and Oz left stressful lives in Britain to realise their dream of owning a small hotel and bringing up a family in France. The layout is charming, with reception, restaurant and guest rooms scattered among terraces and secret corners. The pool area has a great view, as do most of the rooms; there’s space and blissful tranquillity. In the bedrooms where rustic stone walls rub shoulders with white plaster you’ll find stylish modern French furniture and soothing colours, big walk-in showers, good reading lamps and fat pillows. The suite has a fitted wardrobe with antique doors, a comfy raffia sofa and a stunning view through a huge window. Every room is pristine. Treat yourself to Oz’s beautiful cooking on the terrace or in a dining room bright with yellow leather chairs.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Joséphine & Oz

  • Le Mûrier de Viels is perfectly situated for exploring the Lot Valley and the southern Dordogne.
  • The town of Figeac - known as the "Ville d’Art et d’Histoire" - is close by. It has an historic museum with a reproduction of the Rosetta Stone set in granite..
  • Visit Figeac especially for the market on Saturday morning, Villefranche de Rouergue with its market on Thursdays.
  • All of these villages are a must; Belcastel, Saint-Cirq-Lapopie, Conques and Najac, all recognised as some of the most beautiful villages of France.
  • Pech Merle the underground caves with prehistoric paintings (Need to book in advance).
  • Rocamadour with its famous sanctuary of the Virgin Mary and its equally famous cheese.
