The Experience

Sunny days will be spent idling by the wide pool, or pottering around the very beautiful garden to discover a lake with a mown path around it (and yes, a couple of loungers here too for those who like to sneak off) then a poplar plantation, all green shade and rustling leaves. A large, airy garden room sits to one side of the courtyard with barbecue, drinks cooler and plenty of seating.

Thick walls will keep you cool in summer, the kitchen is big enough for everybody to cook together and you’re left local produce from the village including award-winning bread, local goat’s cheese and a bottle of organic Cahors wine. Walk 10 minutes down to the fabulous bakery for your morning baguette or croissants then amble back to spend a bit more time doing nothing more energetic than picking up a book.

On rainy days you can watch a film, play a board game or relax in the garden room and wait for the sun.

Reviews

1000% would recommend this place! We had an incredible stay, Serge and Sam were so friendly and helpful. They gave us lots of great recommendations and were always on hand to answer any questions. We brought our dog with us and he enjoyed the gardens and lake so much. The outdoor space is completely private and it feels like a luxury stay. We will definitely be coming back and spreading the word about this amazing place.

Sophia, Bristol

We loved our stay here, the location is great and the house very well kept and tastefully decorated with everything you need available to you. The outdoor space with pool and barbecue area is exquisite and we really enjoyed spending some of our days by the pool. My partner was working for a few days during our stay and its worth mentioning that the wifi stood up really well. Serge and Sam are really warm and welcoming and very helpful with recommendations or answering any questions that you have - I can't recommend this place enough!

James, London

A lovely Gîte, marvellous pool and grounds in a great location. We stayed two weeks, loved exploring the surrounding small villages as well as the larger towns. Many cycle and walking routes. Serge and Samantha are perfect hosts, have the balance between, respecting privacy and being available for easy chats and tips about restaurants and the area. Anne. September 2021

Anne, Bath

A very relaxing place, in an idyllic setting. Serge was very caring when we arrived, and very respectful of our privacy. A perfect stay for a perfect place.

Maxime, Paris

The house is incredibly beautiful and well decorated! The pool area is magical and completely private with a nice pool house to relax and grill local products. The location is perfect with Cazals village being within a short walking distance to grab your breakfast at an amazing small traditional bakery. All other major sightseeing’s are about 30min drive and plenty to discover if you enjoy cycling. The Host, Serge and his wife are charming and always available to help or advise. They welcomed us with a nice gift and small attentions for our dog. Definitely looking to be visiting back the region

Nikola, Geneva

Your charming hosts hope you will enjoy the tranquillity of walks around the lake, perhaps some fishing, or lounging by the pool in the delightful enclosed garden. Almost passes the pantoufle test - 'can you walk to the boulangerie in your slippers?'...the lively market village is just a short walk away and you return to peace and a variety of outdoor delights and an elegant house.

Location

The neighbourhood

Cazals is a short walk for a restaurant, cafés, lovely shops and a big square lined by traditional houses. On Sundays the market is bustling with local fruit and vegetables, meats and cheeses - it's great for people-watching as well as choosing your supper. There are many medieval towns, castles, more markets, rivers, gorgeous walking trails and vineyards nearby.

Local points of interest from Serge & Sam Rolland

  • Wander in to the village in the morning for your fresh baguette, and croissants from our award winning bakery, or drink a coffee with locals in the sunshine.
  • Located on the edge of the Dordogne we are a short drive away from the fabulous cliff edge castles of the Dordogne, the medieval town of Sarlat.
  • Only a short drive to the breathtaking village of Rocamadour, the natural wonder of the Gouffre de Padirac and the ancient history of the Caves at Pech Merle.
  • If you like food, then this is the area for you. Several Michelin starred restaurants, a number of Michelin recommended restaurants and plenty of fabulous local restaurants all within a short drive.
  • The wines from the Cahors wine region are famed around the world. Visit the vineyards themselves for a round of wine tasting then pop a box or two, into the back of your car to enjoy at the property or back at home.
  • The medieval times have left their mark on the area whether it's in the ancient cobbled streets of hilltop villages, the cliff top castles built by both the English and the French or the gabarres on the river that transported wine across the region.
