This is our second visit and it is as good today as it was six years ago.  The gite has been suitably kept up to date with every modern technology which is amazing for somewhere so rural.  The welcome and attentiveness of the proprietor & his parents was superb.  There really is nowhere better for getting away from city life.  Many thanks once again for our excellent holidays.


3 weeks in paradise. Does silence really sound like this ? I had forgotten. Just birdsong, croaky frogs and the odd buzzy thing. Even my mind stopped its frenzied chattering. And after a day gasping at the views, walking endless paths dotted with wild violets (white one’s too) what pleasure to come back to this perfect little cottage so snug and solid, sympathetically restored and so thoughtfully appointed. Oh yes, definitively a place to return to again, and again, and again…


A gite in harmony with its history and surroundings. The ideal location for lots of walks and other exploring. What better then to “come-home” to a gite that is comfortable (especially the beds) well cared for and well stocked. Another bonus was to have all linens provided and all domestic products available.



The following feedbacks are translated from French:

A warm welcome, a bottle of Cahors wine.  The living room, kitchen and bathroom are furnished with everything you need to feel at home.  The house has been refurbished while respecting its heritage.  Silence, calm, everything is peaceful here – still within short distance from everything needed, small shops as well as supermarket.  The ideal location to discover the Lot and even Dordogne. 


Your house is very comfortable and perfectly met our expectations.  Beds are of good quality, the house is well furnished and the place ideal for quiet vacations.  We enjoyed very much the Quercy and followed your good advices for the Cenevieres castle or the arrival in Rocamadour.  Back home with 2kg of blackberries to prepare jam.”


We first want to thank all the Menassol family for their very friendly welcome.  We had a wonderful week in a house refurbished with great taste.  We enjoyed the cicadas.  What a treat !  All the best.  

Very nice house that we recommend.  The description of the house matches reality.  Surroundings are quiet.  Very nice welcome by the family of the owner.” 


The house provided us a beautiful shelter against July 2013 heat!  Our children were really in paradise here and with water to fill their inflatable swimming pool it was perfect for them.  It was the perfect place for my wife and me to cool down after an hectic year. 

A very big thank you for the nice welcome, the accommodation which was perfect and the information provided by email and phone ahead of our stay.  We hope to come back…


On arrival, matching the pictures, your emails, your advices and our imagination, we discovered your charming house nested in the park, comfortable and quiet.  Everything we look for and like. 

Thank you for your warm family welcome.  Thank you for the welcome gift.  Thank you for the excellent coffee we enjoyed after the 20h general power shut-down due to the thunderstorm. 

We are delighted by our stay and our visits.  We wish you a great sunny summer.  

This rental is a rare pearl.  All the comfort is there, in a natural surroundings.  I frequently rent using Abritel website et have never been disappointed, and this place easily ranks on top of my preferred locations.  Thank you to the owner and his family. “  


Our 4th stay !...  The number of stays says it all!  See you soon!   - 

What an enchantment this house lost in the nature !  This was a marvelous week of vacations during which we combined rest and discovery of this magnificent region!  We will do it again…  Endless thank you for your welcome and the so pretty house.   


Thank you for the wine (the Cahors wine was a revelation!). 

Thank you for the welcome, the house, the surroundings, the flowers and the birds.  These were 2 superb weeks.

Fireworks of autumn colours. Nature, villages, great food. Lovely gite, caring welcome (the wood stove was burning when we arrived). A place blessed with serenity. 


We rested for one week in a little house with blue shutters lost in her immense garden. What a contrast with our busy life! We particularly enjoyed the silence, the calm, the central location which enabled us to discover Rocamadour and Pech-Merle cave…


Here we rediscovered the calm of nature in its purest form and this cottage so well renovated was tempting us in staying for good. We will come back for all what is still left to see. Thank you for your warm welcome and your friendliness


A very enjoyable stay in a house renovated with taste. The blend of tradition et modern equipment make it a special place. Ideally located in the middle of a region rich of its history and nature, the cottage enjoys peacefulness and silence which make us forget the stress of modern life. A big thank you to the owners for sharing this with us  


Congratulations for this well catered gite. We enjoyed very good vacations and we will come back !!

A big thank you to the owner who provided us with a lot of information
