Location

Prayssac


The property is located in open countryside 1 km from a small hamlet with a medieval church and petit chateau, between Prayssac and Luzech overlooking the beautiful Valley of the Lot.

The local village of Sauzet (5 minutes) has grocery store, bakery, café bar and restaurant, and the popular town of Prayssac (10 minutes) has 2 large supermarkets and all facilities.

Canoes and bicycles can be hired locally in Juillac (5 minutes away) and other activities include Hot-Air-Balloon Rides, sky diving, horse riding, and tennis all of which are available nearby. Many vineyard châteaux are open to visitors for wine tasting.

There are many interesting places to visit. Saint-Cirq-Lapopie (45 minutes), is a famous medieval village on a steep hillside above the river Lot. Boat Trips from Cahors provide an interesting way of getting there and enjoying the magnificent scenery from a different perspective. The famous shrine of Rocamadour (1 hour) is easily visited. The pretty village of Les Arques (20 minutes) was home to the Russian Sculptor Zadkin and boasts a Museum of his amazing work.

Cahors (25 minutes) is the regional centre, Built on a narrow peninsula formed by a meander in the river Lot, its history goes back to Roman times, and it was a centre of Cathar Resistance in the middle ages. The 12th century cathedral has celebrated Romanesque carvings. The fortified 'Pont Valentre' bridge over the Lot is unique, justly famous and features in many films.

The River Lot is one of the loveliest in France. The views from Belaye (5 minutes away) are spectacular as it meanders round fertile green farmland, the Cahors vineyards and villages which all have outstanding and atmospheric restaurants.

The region is widely regarded as a gastronomic paradise. Its cuisine is famous throughout France and beyond. Local specialities include dishes based on duck, goose, foi gras, wild mushrooms, truffles, plums, peaches, apricots, walnuts and their oil. The black wines of Cahors, raised on these stony hillsides, were known to the Romans, and have seen a lively revival in recent years.

Reviews

Feedback from previous guests

We have just returned from the most memorable holiday staying at Carcavi.

You have the most amazing property in an idyllic situation all amongst the vines. We were a party of 12, grandparents, children and grandchildren all of whom enjoyed every minute. The pool was magnificent (we had the hot weather which enabled us to spend many an hour cooling off). The property had plenty of space for rounders, cricket, boules, ping-pong, football and hide and seek. There was lots of shade and ideal corners for those who required rest and seclusion. The house itself was very comfortable, spacious, plenty of bathrooms with continual hot water and as you said very cool. Luxurious linen and a large supply of swimming towels added to the comfort.

We have spend several holidays in the Dordogne but this certainly far surpassed them all. Our three children have all requested a return to the Lot area. If you will be letting your property in two years time we would love to repeat our holiday. I only manage a holiday like this every other year!

What makes a holiday for all the girls and myself is to have dinner prepared and cooked. We are very happy to do our own breakfast and lunch but what a treat to have dinner just there.
Purefrance recommended Karla Wagner who was excellent and I cannot recommend her more highly. She had a varied range of menus from barbeques to curries. She arrived promptly every afternoon with our dinner. She was a delight and we all appreciated her hard work on our behalf.

Thank you again for the loan of your house and much look forward hopefully to a return visit.
