The
Experience

For a couple in search of peace and simplicity: a little bolthole on the edge of an ancient village on the pilgrim route from Rocamadour to Compostela. The light, fresh, mezzanine bedroom has stone walls, wooden floors, views on to the shady garden below and its own small terrace. Buy croissants and baguettes from the bakery, saucisson, cheese and wine from one of the local markets and you’re set up for the day. Madame is elegant, bilingual, will respect your privacy and couldn’t be more charming. Your quirky, architect-organised barn conversion faces her house, which has rooms for pilgrims and B&B guests. There’s more seating and a barbecue outside; inside, on the ground floor, a couple of single beds (for children) act as sofas; beyond is a partly partitioned, triangular kitchen and a table for two; a cloakroom fits ingeniously under the stairs, and you’ve a rather delightful bathroom upstairs. Visit Rocamadour before the crowds arrive, head for the nearby Lac de Tolerme with beach and restaurant. The Lot is full of charm.

Local points of interest from Élisabeth de Lapérouse Coleman

  • Themines is a medieval village not far from Rocamadour in one direction and Figeac in the other direction. Figeac is the birthplace of Champolion who deciphered the Rosetta Stone in Egypt!
  • The Dordogne river is not far where guests can go canoeing and swimming. The "plus beaux villages de France" - Carennac, Autoire and Loubressac are a must see.
  • Many small villages have great restaurants, watch out at twelve o'clock for restaurants with lots of cars and trucks. Gramat , only 15 minutes away is a great shopping and restaurant town.
  • Local markets abound, taste the local produce and wine. Saturday morning in Figeac in centre ville is the most picturesque market of all. Sit at a local cafe and watch the world go by.
  • Élisabeth comes from the famous family Laperouse who discovered Australia first. She is a mine of historical information about her family!
